    A new trial reveals that sildenafil, commonly known as Viagra, enhances blood flow to the brain and improves the function of brain blood vessels in patients at a heightened risk of vascular dementia. This study marks a potentially pivotal step in the fight against this debilitating condition. Dr. Alastair Webb said, "This is the first trial to show that sildenafil gets into the blood vessels in the brain in people with this condition, improving blood flow and how responsive these blood vessels are. The significance of this research lies in its potential to transform the treatment and prevention of vascular...

    Can Viagra prevent or reverse Alzheimer’s disease? Older men’s ship may be coming in. New research from the Cleveland Clinic suggests the erectile-dysfunction drug could ward off cognitive decline, illustrating how artificial intelligence can help scientists repurpose old medications for new diseases. The study, published this month in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, builds on earlier research by the Cleveland Clinic that identified sildenafil, the generic name for Viagra, as a promising Alzheimer’s treatment. Researchers first identified genes associated with the disease’s pathology, amyloid plaque and tau tangles in the brain. They then mapped out the molecular interplay among more...

    A trio of medical researchers has found that many men experiencing erectile dysfunction can overcome much of the problem by simply engaging in aerobic exercise. Prior research has shown that many older men experience problems with achieving an erection when they want to have sex. In this new study, the researchers identified that some research has shown that erectile dysfunction is quite often associated with cardiovascular health and associated symptoms such as inflammation and narrowing and/or hardening of the arteries. They also noted that regular aerobic exercise has been shown to reduce symptoms of cardiovascular disease. This made them wonder...

    Pfizer’s erectile dysfunction medication Viagra can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by up to 69%. Credit: Audrey Disse, CC BY-SA 3.0 Research published recently suggests that Pfizer’s erectile dysfunction drug Viagra can decrease the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by up to 69 percent. The research, which was published in Nature, found that the medication has a direct effect on brain health and significantly reduces the toxic proteins that can cause dementia. The study’s findings are so promising that the drug may someday be used to counter dementia. A new team of experts is preparing to conduct another...

    As our chart illustrates, the loss of exclusivity in major markets such as Europe, Japan and most importantly the United States had a significant effect on Viagra sales, which declined by almost 70 percent between 2012 and 2018. 25 years after its initial approval, Viagra is no longer part of Pfizer either. In 2020, the company’s off-patent branded and generics business Upjohn, which included Viagra, was spun-off and combined with Mylan to create a new company called Viatris.

  • The significant impact of ED drugs on men's cardiac health

    A comprehensive research study manuscript examining the impact of erectile dysfunction drugs on major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) and mortality has been published. This study marks a significant medical milestone, as it's the first time the association between the use of PDE-5i drugs and cardiovascular health has been explored in a large population of relatively low-risk men with ED in the United States. In this study, scientists analyzed health records of more than 70,000 men with ED. According to the findings of this large-population study, men who took Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and other drugs of the same class for erectile...

    A UN official claimed Russia is using rape as its “military strategy” in Ukraine — providing soldiers with drugs to sexually assault civilians. “When you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra, it’s clearly a military strategy,” Pramila Patten, UN special representative on sexual violence in conflict, told the AFP. Patten added that the UN has verified “more than a hundred cases” of rape or sexual assault since the invasion began in February. Victims have largely included girls and women, but boys and men have been raped, too. In September, the head of the organization’s Independent International Commission...

    Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. It is expected to affect 16 million Americans by 2050. The hallmarks of AD are amyloid plaques and tau neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Efforts to develop new drugs that directly target amyloid or tau proteins haven’t yielded significant clinical benefits for patients. Another approach to developing AD treatments would be to seek existing drugs that could potentially be repurposed. A team of researchers led by Dr. Feixiong Cheng at the Cleveland Clinic developed a computational method for identifying FDA-approved drugs that might be effective against AD. NIH’s National Institute...

    Viagra is a miracle drug that keeps on growing. A 37-year-old nurse in England is back on her feet, thanks to the little blue pill. The fully vaxxed Monica Almeida tested positive for the Chinese Wu-flu on October 31. Soon she had the Chinese sneeze and pneumonia as well. She also has asthma and is a bit on the portly side. By November 16 she was in a medically induced coma. That’s when she caught an infection. She also had to undergo a tracheotomy just over two weeks later. She was in bad shape. Her parents were contacted and told...

    A nurse who spent 28 days in a Covid coma fighting for her life has been saved after medics gave her Viagra. Mother-of-two Monica Almeida, 37, from Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, was just three days away from having her ventilator turned off. Mrs Almeida was given the erectile dysfunction drug by her colleagues at Lincoln County Hospital.

    Usage of the medication sildenafil – better known to most as the brand-name drug Viagra – is associated with dramatically reduced incidence of Alzheimer's disease, new research suggests. According to a study led by researchers at the Cleveland Clinic, taking sildenafil is tied to a nearly 70 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer's compared to non-users. That's based on an analysis of health insurance claim data from over 7.2 million people, in which records showed that claimants who took the medication were much less likely to develop Alzheimer's over the next six years of follow up, compared to matched control...
  • Sex drug can strongly suppress abnormal heart rhythms, finds study (Viagra “strongly” fixes arrythmias)

    09/02/2021 2:01:01 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 99 replies
    Viagra, used to treat sexual impotence, can strongly suppress abnormal heart rhythms known as arrythmias in sheep according to scientists. In female sheep, the drug—also known as sildenafil—was able to suppress an arrythmia called Torsades de Pointes within 90 seconds by reducing the frequency of irregular heart rhythms caused by abnormal handling of calcium. It also reduced the probability of Torsades de Pointes, which can lead to sudden cardiac death. However, the team believe the drug could treat other arrythmias as well. Cardiac arrythmias often follow a heart attack, or result from heart disease. Though often benign , they can...

"It's a pretty remarkable drug," Massachusetts General Hospital critical-care specialist Dr. Lorenzo Berra, who is leading a trial, told the L.A. Times. "It has a risk profile that is minimal." . . . . Dr. Berra said nitric oxide was also found to kill a coronavirus that leapt from bats to humans, University of Leuven in Belgium researchers found in 2004, according to the report. "The story ended there," Berra told the...
