The Therapy of Nebido as Mono or in Combination With PDE-5 Inhibitors in Hypogonadal Patients With Erectile Dysfunction

2014-08-27 03:40:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the response of a treatment with testosterone undecanoate and determine the levels of total and free testosterone in hypogonadal patients with erectile dysfunction.

Description

Hypogonadism is a pathophysiologic and clinical factor in a substantial number of patients with ED,and data indicate that a threshold level of testosterone is necessary for normal erectile function.Testosterone therapy is clearly indicated in hypogonadal patients and is beneficial in other patients with ED and hypogonadism.However,testosterone efficacy as monotherapy for ED could be limited,and combination therapy with testosterone and other ED treatments,such as PDE-5 inhibitors may be valuable in certain subpopulations of patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Condition resulting from deficient gonadal functions, such as GAMETOGENESIS and the production of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES. It is characterized by delay in GROWTH, germ cell maturation, and development of secondary sex characteristics. Hypogonadism can be due to a deficiency of GONADOTROPINS (hypogonadotropic hypogonadism) or due to primary gonadal failure (hypergonadotropic hypogonadism).

Steroidal compounds related to TESTOSTERONE, the major mammalian male sex hormone. Testosterone congeners include important testosterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with androgenic activities.

A potent androgenic metabolite of TESTOSTERONE. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is generated by a 5-alpha reduction of testosterone. Unlike testosterone, DHT cannot be aromatized to ESTRADIOL therefore DHT is considered a pure androgenic steroid.

A potent androgenic steroid and major product secreted by the LEYDIG CELLS of the TESTIS. Its production is stimulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE from the PITUITARY GLAND. In turn, testosterone exerts feedback control of the pituitary LH and FSH secretion. Depending on the tissues, testosterone can be further converted to DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL.

An ester of TESTOSTERONE with a propionate substitution at the 17-beta position.
