My Erect At Will Cures ED Review

Highly Recommended

I've really worked on the chapters in this book and can only say that if you put in the time you will never revert back to your old methods.

Overall my first impression of this ebook is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Erectile dysfunction

Approximately 10 of the adult male population in industrialized countries suffers from erectile dysfunction, provoked mainly by psychosocial stress. Erection is a complex physiological event characterized by vasodilation, increased blood vessel permeability and edema. PGEi has been identified as an important mediator in this process due to its vasodilative properties. Thus, it represents a target for therapeutic intervention. Recently, these findings have been clinically applied in the diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction by means of intracavenous injection of PGEt (Alprostadil) 221 , Besides PGEi, other potent vasodilators acting via local prostaglandin modulation (papaverin and phentolamine) or combinations of these three drugs are in use 222 .

Stage 1 Lead Finding or Establishing Directions One to Two Years

It is not uncommon for large companies to suddenly establish a direction through serendipitous discoveries. Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin as a result of serendipity. Although many of the drugs that are in use today have been discovered in this way, it is a difficult route for the pharmaceutical industry to follow and breaks are few and far between. More recently, the discovery that the phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (originally tested as antihypertensive agents) can be a good candidate for male erectile dysfunction has changed the focus of research at Pfizer, and as a result, at several other companies.

Applications to the Synthesis of Commercial Drug Molecules

A number of syntheses targeting commercially available drugs have been reported, which demonstrate the utility and effectiveness of supported reagents for the rapid and efficient preparation of drug-like scaffolds. The introduction of Sildenafil45 4 for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction has been incredibly successful, resulting in it becoming one of the largest selling globally marketed prescription drugs.46 Sildenafil acts by inhibiting the phosphodiesterase enzyme PDE5, which is the main phosphodiesterase present in the smooth muscle of the corpus cavernosum. Upon sexual stimulus, nitric oxide is released from nerve terminals in the corpus cavernosum. The nitric oxide activates guanylate cyclase to produce cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), causing the intracellular levels of cGMP within the smooth muscle cells of the penis to increase. In healthy tissue, the elevated cGMP is returned to basal levels by the action of the PDE5 enzyme. Inhibition of the PDE5 enzyme...

Pharmacodynamic Interactions

Nitrovasodilators (see Chapter 31) produce vasodilation by NO-dependent elevation of cyclic GMP in vascular smooth muscle. The pharmacologic effects of sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil result from inhibition of the type 5 cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (PDE5) that hydrolyzes cyclic GMP to 5'GMP in the vasculature. Thus, coadministration of an NO donor (e.g., nitroglycerin) with a PDE5 inhibitor can cause potentially catastrophic hypotension.

Comparisons of Steroid Hormonal Factors in Nested Case Control Studies

The relation between prostate cancer risk and the occurrence of the aforementioned valine to leucine mutation at codon 89 in the SRD5A2 gene, a polymorphism that is associated with reduced 5a-reductase activity, was examined by Febbo et al. 175 and Lunn et al. 153 . Febbo et al. 175 , who conducted a nested case-control study using the Physician's Health Study cohort, found the valine-leucine and leucine-leucine genotypes in 50 of cases and 51 of controls and these were not associated with elevated prostate cancer risk as compared with the valine-valine genotype. Lunn et al. 153 confirmed these findings in a case-control study that employed prostate cancer patients from urology clinics in North Carolina. Controls, not matched to cases, were drawn from BPH and impotence patients from the same clinics. Most men were European American and 5-11 were African American. The valine-leucine and leucine-leucine genotypes were found in 56 of cases and 49 of controls and were not associated with...

Apomorphine Definition

Apomorphine is a drug used to treat impairments in motor function (tremor, slow movement, and difficulty walking and speaking) in Parkinson's patients. It is sometimes used for erectile dysfunction. In larger doses, it has emetic effects and was used in aversion therapies. It is a nonspecific dopamine agonist with actions at several subtypes of dopamine receptors, both presynaptic and postsynaptic. As a pharmacological tool for probing the function of dopamine receptors, it has been largely replaced by more selective substances. It does not have morphine-like effects and does not interact with opioid receptors.

Local Vascular Effects Of a Adrenergic Receptor Agonists

Epi is used in many surgical procedures in the nose, throat, and larynx to shrink the mucosa and improve visualization by limiting hemorrhage. Simultaneous injection of Epi with local anesthetics retards the absorption of the anesthetic and increases the duration of anesthesia ( see Chapter 14). Injection of a agonists into the penis may be useful in reversing priapism, a complication of the use of a receptor antagonists or PDE5 inhibitors (e.g., sildenafil) in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Both phenylephrine and oxymetazoline are efficacious vasoconstrictors when applied locally during sinus surgery.

Properties And Functions Of Nitric Oxide

Nitric oxide activates heme-containing guanylate cyclase by forming an NO-heme complex (8). Elevations in 3',5'-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) result in vascular smooth muscle and this increases cerebral blood flow (CBF) (43). However, cGMP-dependent mechanisms may only be operational in cells adjacent to those generating NO because intracellular calcium levels sufficient to activate NOS inhibit guanylate cyclase. Blood vessels may provide an example (8,44). Vasodilatory neuromediators like acetylcholine or bradykinin raise intracellular calcium and stimulate endothelial NOS activity to release NO from endothelial cells. NO, in turn, enhances cGMP synthesis in smooth muscle cells. Nitrovasodilators such as nitroglycerin, nitroprusside, or 3-morpholinosy-nonimine (SIN-1) raise cGMP in vascular smooth muscle by directly liberating or donating NO (8,45). Under physiological conditions guanylate cyclase is a key mediator of cerebral arterial relaxations to NO. Platelet inhibition,...

Simple And Complex Partial And Secondarily Generalized Tonicclonic Seizures

Assessment of toxic effects of each drug. Decreased libido and impotence were associated with both drugs (carbamazepine 13 , phenytoin 11 ). Between carbamazepine and valproic acid, carbamazepine provides superior control of complex partial seizures. Overall, data demonstrate that carbamazepine and phenytoin are preferable for treatment of partial seizures, but phenobarbital and valproic acid are also efficacious. Control of secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizures does not differ significantly with carbamazepine, phenobarbital, or phenytoin, and val-proic acid is as effective as carbamazepine. Since secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizures usually coexist with partial seizures, these data indicate that among drugs introduced before 1990, carbamazepine and phenytoin are the first-line drugs here.

Behavioral Effects Induced by 5HT2C Receptors General Consideration

It has been reported for many years that the stimulation of 5-HT2C receptors alters behaviors per se in rodents including penile erection, grooming, stereotypes, oral dyskinesia, decrease in impulsivity, locomotor activity and feeding behavior, and increase in anxiety (Jones and Blackburn 2002 Giorgetti and Tecott 2004 Millan et al. 2005). Interestingly, some authors, using new agonists, have reported that 5-HT2C receptors may also display anxiolytic antidepressant properties (Rosenzweig-Lipson et al. 2007), underscoring a possible existence of multiple and opposite behavioral outputs induced by 5-HT2C drugs of a similar pharmacological class. The stimulation of 5-HT2C receptors has also been shown to alter behaviors associated with perturbations of central DA transmission. In particular, 5-HT2C receptor stimulation decreases the effects on locomotor hyperactivity and self-administration associated with drugs of abuse (Grottick et al. 2000 Tomkins et al. 2002). However, 5-HT2C...

Severe zinc deficiency

Severe zinc deficiency has been observed in experimental human zinc deple-tion,16 in adults and children on total parenteral nutrition solutions lacking zinc17,18 and in patients with acrodermatitis enteropathica - a rare autosomal recessive disorder of zinc uptake associated with mutations in an intestinal zinc transporter gene.19 The clinical manifestations of severe zinc deficiency in humans include slowing or cessation of growth and development, delayed sexual maturation and impotence, characteristic skin rashes, alopecia, chronic and severe diarrhea, immune system deficiencies, impaired wound healing, diminished appetite, impaired taste sensation, night blindness, corneal changes and behavioral disturbances.8,20 Although not a useful indicator of mild zinc deficiency, plasma zinc concentrations, which normally range from 75 to 120 mg dL (11.5-18.5 mmol L), have been found to fall below 70 mg dL with experimental zinc depletion.

HT2CDopamine Interactions in Psychiatric Disorders 1171 Depression

Although dopamine has received little attention in biological research on depression, as compared with other monoamines such as serotonin and noradrenaline, current research on the dopaminergic system is about to change this situation. It is now well established that disturbances of mesolimbic and nigrostriatal DA function are involved in the pathophysiology of depression (Fibiger 1995 Brown and Gershon 1993). Moreover, stress promotes profound and complex alterations involving DA release, metabolism, and receptor densities in the mesolimbic system (Puglisi-Allegra et al. 1991 Cabib and Puglisi-Allegra 1996). It seems that exposure to unavoidable uncontrollable aversive experiences leads to inhibition of DA release in the mesoaccumbens DA system as well as impaired responding to rewarding and aversive stimuli. These alterations could elicit stress-induced expression and exacerbation of some depressive symptoms in humans (Cabib and Puglisi-Allegra 1996). Thus, in view of the hypothesis...

Exposure in the Workplace and from Industrial Accidents

Impotence Gynecomastia, impotence structurally similar to diethylstilbestrol. A study in 1981 -1983 of 39 DAS workers reported low testosterone in 37 of men tested, as well as impotence 116 . A follow-up study found significantly reduced testosterone (both total and free) in both current and former DAS-exposed workers compared to unexposed controls 117 . Thus, it is clear that at the high levels present in the work place, a variety of EDCs have the capacity to alter significantly male reproductive function.

HT2C Receptors in Depressive Patients and in Animal Models of Depression

The chronic mild stress assay is commonly considered to be among the most predictive models of antidepressant action in the rat. The regimen of chronic unpredictable stress, which is essential to produce the anhedonic behavior on which the paradigm is based, also results in a 5-HT2C-mediated increase in penile erection (Berendsen and Broekkamp 1997). Isolation rearing in the rat has also been demonstrated to produce changes that can be likened to symptoms of depression specifically the model is characterized by increased behavioral and hormonal responses to stress. An increased responsiveness to metachlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP) on anxiety-like behavior and plasma corticosterone levels following isolation rearing suggests an increase in sensitivity of 5-HT2C receptors (Fone et al. 1996). These observations implicate 5-HT2C receptors in the mediation of the depression-like symptoms exhibited by these models, just as they are implicated in the changes brought about by the selective...

Support for the Serotonin 2C Receptor

The 5-HT2C receptor has been implicated as a potential therapeutic target in a wide variety of conditions including obesity, anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, migraine, and erectile dysfunction. The 5-HT2 receptor family currently accommodates three receptor subtypes, 5-HT2A, 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C receptors, which are similar in terms of their molecular structure, pharmacology, and signal transduction pathways. Because the binding properties of 5-HT toward the The involvement of 5-HT2C receptors in psychiatric disorders has been hypothesized based largely on pharmacological and clinical studies. A number of atypical and typical antipsychotic agents, including clozapine, loxapine, and chlorpromazine, have a relatively high affinity for 5-HT2C binding sites as well as 5-HT2A. Some conventional and atypical antidepressants (e.g., tricyclics, doxepin, mianserin, and trazodone) also exhibit a similar binding affinity (Canton et al. 1990, 1996 Roth and...

Adverse Effects And Drug Interactions

Fibric acid compounds usually are well tolerated. Side effects, most often Gl-related, may occur in 5-10 of patients but most often are not sufficient to cause drug discontinuation. Other infrequent side effects include rash, urticaria, hair loss, myalgias, fatigue, headache, impotence, and anemia. Minor increases in liver transaminases and alkaline phosphatase have been reported. Clofibrate, bezafibrate, and fenofibrate reportedly can potentiate the action of oral anticoagulants by displacing them from their binding sites on albumin thus, monitoring of the prothrombin time and reduction in anticoagulant dosage may be appropriate.

Phosphodiesterase Type 5 Inhibitors

As discussed throughout this chapter, the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases constitute a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of various cyclic nucleotides including cAMP and cGMP. The contractility of all muscle types is regulated primarily by reversible phosphorylation of the protein myosin. The phosphorylation of myosin allows it to interact with actin, which results in muscle contraction. Through different mechanisms, cAMP and cGMP interfere with the ability of myosin to be phosporylated and or interact with actin. This, in turn, results in muscle relaxation. Agents that interfere with the degradation of the cyclic nucleotide have usefulness in treating hypertension, erectile dysfunction, etc. Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) is responsible for the catalytic hydrolysis of cGMP in the smooth muscle of the arteries in the penis and lungs. Inhibitors of this particular phos-phodiesterase have been shown to relax arteries in the penis, thus allowing the corpus cavernosum to...

Adverse Reactions And Drug Interactions

The H2 receptor antagonists generally are well tolerated, with a low (< 3 ) incidence of adverse effects including diarrhea, headache, drowsiness, fatigue, muscular pain, and constipation. Less common adverse effects include those affecting the CNS (confusion, delirium, hallucinations, slurred speech, and headaches), which occur primarily with intravenous administration or in elderly subjects. Long-term use of cimetidine at high doses decreases testosterone binding to the androgen receptor and inhibits a CYP that hydroxylates estradiol. Clinically, these effects can cause galactorrhea in women and gynecomastia, reduced sperm count, and impotence in men. Several reports have associated H2 receptor antagonists with various blood dyscrasias, including thrombocytopenia. H2 receptor antagonists cross the placenta and are excreted in breast milk.

Roles as a Protectant Antioxidant

While NO is often considered a cytotoxic compound, it can also function as an antioxidant in cells by its reaction with other radical molecules, thereby breaking the chain of free radical propagation (Wink et al., 1993 Halliwell et al., 1999). Several reports of NO as a protectant against senescence and oxidative stress in plants have appeared. In a variety of both climacteric and non-climacteric fruits and flowers, of vegetables and legume species, NO emission decreases with maturation and during senescence (Leshem and Haramaty, 1996 Leshem et al., 1998). Moreover, exogenous application of NO markedly delays senescence and maturation of these tissues (Leshem et al., 1998). NO is thought to delay senescence both by down-regulating ethylene emission and by acting as an antioxidant. NO can, therefore, be regarded as a naturally occurring plant growth effector. More recently, the same authors (Leshem et al., 1998) have shown that NO fumigation can be advantageously replaced, in the case...

HT2C Receptors and the Motor Control of Orofacial Responses

The available, nonselective, 5-HT2C agonists elicit various alterations of motor responses including grooming, penile erection, hypolocomotor activity, forms of stereotypies, and purposeless oral movements. This latter response is interesting because it is observed at low doses of agonists and, at variance with some of the other behaviors evoked above, is only dependent on 5-HT2C receptors. Stewart and colleagues (1989) observed an increase in purposeless oral movements elicited by the nonselective 5-HT agonists mCPP and TFMPP (Stewart et al. 1989). The oral bouts consisted of vacuous chewing, jaw tremor, and tongue darting occurring without any physical object. The intensity of oral bouts induced by the 5-HT agonist was dose dependent and decreased when very high doses of mCPP were used

Drugs For Androgenetic Alopecia

Finasteride (propecia) inhibits the type II isozyme of 5a-reductase, the enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (see Chapter 58). The type II 5a-reductase is found in hair follicles. Balding areas of the scalp are associated with increased dihydrotesterone levels and smaller hair follicles than nonbalding areas. Orally administered finasteride (1 mg day) has been shown to variably increase hair growth in men over a 2-year period, increasing hair counts in the vertex and the frontal scalp. Finasteride is approved for use only in men. Pregnant women should not be exposed to the drug because of the potential for inducing genital abnormalities in male fetuses. Adverse effects of finasteride include decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, ejaculation disorder, and decreased ejaculate volume. Each of these occurs in < 2 of patients. Like minoxi-dil, treatment with finasteride must be continued, or any new hair growth will be lost.

Role of Pharmacotherapy

Androgens play an important role in physiologic aspects of the female sexual response. However, the effect of androgen therapy on sexual function in women is controversial. Some studies have reported improvements in libido, sexual arousal, and the frequency of sexual fantasies with testosterone therapy in a variety of forms. The observation that testosterone therapy may result in improvement in mood and well-being is felt by some researchers to be most important. The central sex ster-oid's effect on mood may be what underlies sexual function in both women and men. Potential side effects of androgens include a decline in serum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol with oral preparations and mild cosmetic side effect such as hirsutism and acne. Testosterone preparations include creams, gels, and tablets that can be taken orally or used sublingually. They are not approved in the US FDA, but one product approved in Europe for postmenopausal women is a transdermal testosterone patch....

Project Title Adjuvant Ginseng Use During Breast Cancer Drug Therapy

Summary (provided by applicant) Ginseng is an herb widely used by humans to treat lack of stamina, loss of appetite and cachexia, and impotence. In Asian medicine, ginseng is a common component in herbals used in treatment of cancer, including breast cancer. There is recent scientific evidence that ginseng and its ginsenoside components are effective in inhibiting breast cancer cell proliferation in vitro and tumor growth in vivo. Consequently, many patients may be taking ginseng supplements during treatment with standard chemotherapy and hormonal therapy regimens in an effort to enhance therapeutic results as well as ameliorate side effects of the cancer chemotherapeutic drugs. However, there is no information on how adjuvant ginseng use could influence the efficacy of the cancer therapeutic drugs. This R21 proposal will address the following questions. Will the adjuvant use of ginseng aid in or interfere with standard breast cancer chemo- or hormonal therapy Will adjuvant ginseng...

Late Distal Tubule And Collecting Duct

Blood Dyscrasias Chart

Salicylates may reduce the tubular secretion and decrease the diuretic efficacy of spironolactone, and spironolactone may alter the clearance of cardiac glycosides. Owing to its effects on other steroid receptors, spironolactone may cause gynecomastia, impotence, decreased libido, and menstrual irregularities. Spironolactone also may induce diarrhea, gastritis, gastric bleeding, and peptic ulcers (the drug is contraindicated in patients with peptic ulcers). CNS adverse effects include drowsiness, lethargy, ataxia, confusion, and headache. Spironolactone may cause rashes and, rarely, blood dyscrasias. Whether therapeutic doses of spironolactone can induce malignancies remains an open question. Strong inhibitors of CYP3A4 (see Chapter 3) may increase plasma levels of eplerenone such drugs should not be administered to patients taking eplerenone, and vice versa. Other than hyperkalemia and GI disorders, the rate of adverse events for eplerenone is similar to that of placebo.

Typical And Atypical Medications

The definition of atypical drugs often includes low capacity to elevate prolactin levels. An increase in prolactin secretion, usually associated with treatment by typical antipsychotics, results in galactorrhea, menstrual changes in women, and impotence in men.20 Clozapine, olanzapine, sertindole, and quetiapine either produce transient increase or no elevation in prolactin levels and, therefore, can be considered atypical by this criterion.12 In contrast, sulpiride, amisulpiride, remox-ipride, and risperidone, while deemed atypical by the more narrow standard, produce dose-dependent elevation in prolactin secretion and, thus, should be classified as typical by this extended

Nitroglycerin Nitroglycerin

NO plays a role in penile erection, in controlling blood clotting by inhibition of platelet aggregation, and in the immune response, wherein it is produced by macrophages. NO is a very reactive, shortlived species which is deactivated with a halflife of less than a minute.1

Interaction Of Nitrates With Phosphodiesterase 5 Inhibitors

Erectile dysfunction is a frequently encountered problem whose risk factors parallel those of coronary artery disease. Thus, many men desiring therapy for erectile dysfunction already may be receiving antianginal therapy The phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors sildenafil (viagra), tadalafil (cialis), and vardenafil (levitra) have been developed and widely used for therapy of erectile dysfunction. In the presence of a PDE5 inhibitor, nitrates cause profound increases in cyclic GMP and can dramatically reduce blood pressure. Thus, all three PDE5 inhibitors are contraindi-cated in patients taking organic nitrate vasodilators, as indicated by a black box warning on product labeling. In the event that patients develop significant hypotension following combined administration of PDE5 inhibitor and a nitrate, fluids and a adrenergic receptor agonists, if needed, should be used for support.

Clonidine Guanabenz and Guanfacine

ADVERSE EFFECTS AND PRECAUTIONS Many patients experience annoying and even intolerable adverse effects with these drugs. Sedation and xerostomia are prominent. The latter may be accompanied by dry nasal mucosa, dry eyes, and parotid gland swelling and pain. Postural hypotension and erectile dysfunction are prominent in some patients. Clonidine may produce a lower incidence of dry mouth and sedation when given transdermally, perhaps because high peak concentrations are avoided. Less common CNS side effects include sleep disturbances with vivid dreams or nightmares, restlessness, and depression. Cardiac effects related to the sympatholytic action of these drugs include symptomatic bradycardia and sinus arrest in patients with dysfunction of the sinoatrial node and AV block in patients with AV nodal disease or in patients taking other drugs that depress AV conduction. Some 15-20 of patients who receive transdermal clonidine may develop contact dermatitis.

Tat3L4F Does Not Produce Significant Behavioral Side Effects

Previous studies have utilized nonselective treatments focused on enhancing 5-HT neurotransmission, such as L-tryptophan (Fletcher et al. 2004 McGregor et al. 1993) and fluoxetine (Carroll et al. 1990 Fletcher et al. 2004 Richardson and Roberts 1991), which were shown to reduce self-administration of cocaine and amphetamine. It was suggested that this occurred due to stimulation of 5-HT2C receptor in the VTA (Fletcher et al. 2004). However, nonselective treatments typically have more side effects. While the selective 5-HT2C agonist R0600175 inhibits the VTA dopamine pathway, R0600175 has also been shown to cause significant side effects in rats such as hypophagia, hypolocomotion, penile erection, motor functional suppression, and anxiety (Alves et al. 2004 Grottick et al. 2000 Higgins and Fletcher 2003 Wood 2003). Although PTEN inhibitors may reduce the dephosphorylation effects of PTEN on 5-HT2C receptor to suppress the rewarding effects of abused drugs, the role of PTEN as a tumor...

The Ethics Of Pain And Suffering Narrative Analysis

We lack medications to relieve suffering that are as effective as opioids in relieving pain. There is, however, an equally serious issue to face. The best medical approach to suffering is not always aggressive action. Although medicine prefers action and thrives on problem-solving, sometimes little or nothing can be done. Surgeon Sherwin B Nuland writes, The diagnosis of disease and the quest for overcoming it with his intellect are the challenges that motivate every specialist who is any good at what he does. He is fascinated with pathology. When faced by the certainty of his own impotence to treat it, the would-be healer too often turns away.''103 This is unfortunate, but not surprising. When medical practice becomes preeminently an arena of action, inaction is usually misinterpreted as failure. Yet sometimes suffering will run its terrible course regardless of any intervention. In such cases, there is great value in openly discussing the role of witness.

Crystallization Induced Diastereomer Transformation

The first report ofCIDT dates back to 1846, when Dubrunfast uncovered the mutarotation of D-glucose 14c - In recent years, CIDT has been attracting much attention as a green technique and is used in several manufacturing processes for chiral drugs, such as the NK1 receptor antagonist aprepitant 14d and the PDE5 inhibitor tadalafil 14e (Figure 9.7). The CIDT-based process for aprepitant

Pausinystalia johimbe K Schum Pierre ex Beille

Yohimbe bark is native to western Africa, where it was traditionally used as a sexual stimulant, primarily for men, and for the treatment of impotence. It is rich in the alkaloid yohimbine, which has been used for erectile dysfunction in medicine for more than 100 years.

Exceptions To The Rules

Another example of a useful side effect comes from the Viagra development story. Viagra (trade name for sildenafil) was originally developed as a drug for hypertension. When the researchers discovered that the drug target was prevalent in vascular muscle walls, the project shifted the goal from a hypertension treatment to an angina treatment. When the drug entered human clinical trials, it became clear almost immediately that it was less effective than the existing nitroglycerin treatments. In the course of those initial clinical trials, the hospital staff noted that one side effect was an improvement in erectile dysfunction. This observation was taken seriously, and eventually lead to Viagra, which is now a blockbuster drug, meaning that sales have grossed over a billion dollars.

Occupational Exposure to Amsonic Acid

It is surprising to learn that occupational exposures to potential EDCs at effective concentrations apparently have not been eliminated from the workplace. A series of publications from about 1990 to 1996 presented documentation of sexual impotence in chemical factory workers exposed to a DES-like stilbene derivative. The National Institute of Occupation Safety and Health conducted two studies in response to complaints of impotence and decreased libido among male workers involved in the manufacture of 4,4'-diaminostilbene-2,2' -disulfonic acid (DAS), a key ingredient in the synthesis of dyes and fluorescent whitening agents. Both current and former workers had lower serum testosterone levels 63 and reduced libido 64 as compared to control workers. In addition, duration of employment was negatively correlated with testosterone levels. These studies replicated the observations reported by Quinn et al. 65 who reported low levels of serum testosterone and problems with impotence in male...

Citalopram Definition

Citalopram is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). It is commonly used in the treatment of depression and some of the more severe anxiety disorders (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder). As with other SSRIs, the most troublesome side effect of citalopram is sexual dysfunction (dysorgas-mia and erectile dysfunction) mild side effects include drowsiness, headache, and nausea. Escitalopram, the S-enantiomer of racemic citalopram, is also marketed as an antidepressant.

Drug History

The starting point in the drug history is the documentation of current prescription drug use. It often is very helpful for patients to bring all current medications with them to the clinical encounter. Specific prompting is required to elicit the use of over-the-counter drugs and herbal supplements. Similarly, information about medications that are used only sporadically (e.g., sildenafil for erectile dysfunction) may not be volunteered. With cognitively impaired patients, it may be necessary to include caregivers and pharmacy records in the drug history process. Adverse reactions to drugs should be documented with specifics regarding severity. It is revealing to ask whether patients or their physicians have discontinued any medications in the past. A review of current drug profile and list of adverse effects are required for each patient encounter, both during hospital rounds and during outpatient visits, to maximize effectiveness and safety of treatment.

Genomics

Whereas the chemical libraries of drug-like compounds can be readily screened to yield chemically novel compounds, the road to taking these leads to useful drugs remains a challenge. The off-patent and old drugs should not be shelved, as they offer a remarkable opportunity for newer uses for example, apomorphine, now used to treat nausea, finds a role in treating erectile dysfunction. These older drugs can be useful in generating genomic databases. Genomics involves sequencing of genomes and leads to the derivation of theoretical information from the analysis of such sequences with computational tools. In contrast, functional genomics defines the transcriptome and proteome status of a cell, tissue, or organism under a prescribed set of conditions. The term transcriptome describes the transcription (mRNA) profile, whereas proteome describes the translation (protein) complement derived from a genome, including post-translational modifications (PTM) of proteins. The proteome information...

Acute Intoxication

After local exposure to vapors or aerosols or after their inhalation, ocular and respiratory effects generally appear first. Ocular manifestations include marked miosis, ocular pain, con-junctival congestion, diminished vision, ciliary spasm, and brow ache. With acute systemic absorption, miosis may not be evident due to sympathetic discharge in response to hypotension. In addition to rhinorrhea and hyperemia of the upper respiratory tract, respiratory effects include tightness in the chest and wheezing due to bronchoconstriction and increased bronchial secretion. GI symptoms occur earliest after ingestion and include anorexia, nausea and vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. With percutaneous absorption of liquid, localized sweating and muscle fasciculations in the immediate vicinity are generally the earliest symptoms. Severe intoxication is manifested by extreme salivation, involuntary defecation and urination, sweating, lacrimation, penile erection, bradycardia, and...

Patenting Systems

A patent is a grant by the government of exclusive rights for a limited time with respect to a new and useful invention, rights to prevent others from making or selling the invention in a limited territory as defined by the patent-issuing authority. A patent is not a right to sell the invention. The word patent means open, and the words, letter patent, mean an announcement made to all that the inventor has been awarded rights to the invention. Open here means without having to break any seal, as was the custom in the decrees issued in the past by the sovereign governments. Note that letters patent are not restricted to inventions, as even today these are issued to appoint judges in the United Kingdom. Historically, patents were issued on elaborate stationary, as they still are to some extent. The point about the rights to exercise an invention, vis-a-vis to prevent others from practicing, needs further elaboration. The new chemical entity patent for sildenafil citrate expired in March...

Yohimbine

Yohimbine readily enters the CNS, where it acts to increase blood pressure and heart rate it also enhances motor activity and produces tremors. Yohimbine also is an antagonist of 5-HT. In the past, yohimbine was used to treat male sexual dysfunction, although efficacy never was clearly demonstrated yohimbine also may be useful for diabetic neuropathy and in the treatment of postural hypotension.

Toxicity

Fatigue, poor memory, hallucinations, anorexia, impotence and muscular pain in the lower extremities. This is followed by speech disorders, clumsiness in movements and loss of facial expressions. Finally, muscular rigidity, staggering gait and tremor of the upper limbs occur.26 The affinity of manganese to the basal ganglia in the brain suggests that this mineral might have a role in the pathogenesis of hepatic encephalopathy.27 Another effect of prolonged exposure might be impotence, as sperm motility and sperm counts were reduced in mice given high manganese doses.28

Fluoxetine

Fluoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). One of the earliest of these drugs to be developed, it is widely perceived in the popular culture to be paradigmatic of the class. It is commonly used in the treatment of depression and the more severe anxiety disorders (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder). Fluoxetine is also approved for the treatment of bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. A distinguishing pharmacokinetic feature of the drug is its long elimination half-life (up to 4-6 days during long-term use and up to 2 weeks for the major active metabolite norfluoxetine). As with other SSRIs, the most common troublesome side effect of fluoxetine is sexual dysfunction (dysorgasmia and erectile dysfunction) mild side effects include drowsiness, headache, and nausea. Some patients develop a syndrome of psychomotor activation upon starting the drug, which has been characterized as similar to akathisia.

Adverse Effects

Treating the target symptom (e.g., ondansetron for nausea, lorazepam for insomnia). More troublesome and persistent are sexual adverse effects, including anorgasmia, decreased libido, ejaculation disturbances, and erectile dysfunction. Transient adverse effects are likely the result of acute stimulation of postsynaptic serotonin receptors however, efforts to link these symptoms to specific receptor subtypes are speculative. Table 8 lists common adverse effects associated with SSRIs, and options for clinical management. increases, sildenafil (Viagra), or change to another antidepressant, bupropion

Reduction

Consider again the 3 ' ,5 ' -cyclicGMP phosphodiesterase inhibitor sildenafil, the structure of which is shown below. Sildenafil's absolute bioavailability of 40 and its mean steady-state volume of distribution of 105 L are consistent with its general distribution into nearly all tissues. Sildenafil's molecular weight of 474.2 is clearly below the 500-Da molecular-mass limit indicated in Lupinski's Property-1. Its logi0 P value of 6.1 for the neutral species, which satisfies Property-2, is consistent with the pendant lipophilic groups (e.g., methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, phenyl- groups). As regards Property-3, the following speculative drawing of the hydrated structure suggests there are likely to be a greater number of solvent hydrogen bonds as well as an intramolecular H-bond (hydrogen shown in blue), the latter likely to reduce the rate of sildenafil's transmembrane adsorption

Sexual Side Effects

Typically, data derived from clinical studies estimate sexual disability attributed to SRIs to be less than 20 , whereas in clinical practice the incidence appears to be significantly higher, perhaps as high as 40 . This side effect clearly has an adverse effect on medication adherence, partly because discussion of sexual issues is difficult for patients and clinicians alike. Although all SRIs and venlafaxine have been associated with male and female sexual dysfunction, there is a prevailing view among clinicians that this side effect might be more problematic with paroxetine, although few controlled data are available to address this issue. In a comparison study of 200 subjects treated with paroxetine, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, or sertraline, paroxetine treatment was associated with higher rates of anorgasmia or difficulty with ejaculation and impotence in both men and women (Montejo-Gonzalez et al. 1997). Significant differences among the four drugs were not noted with respect to...

Stephen J Cutler

Proteins, cardiovascular agents, describe the role various chemical entities play in controlling cardiovascular diseases. This chapter describes the agents used in the treatment of angina, cardiac arrhythmias, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, hyperlipidemias, and disorders of blood coagulation. For pharmacists to be good practitioners, it is necessary that they understand the pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases and the agents used to treat these syndromes.

Tropane alkaloids

Cocaine Cocaine, molecular weight C17H2iNO4, is a white crystalline tropane alkaloid found mainly in coca plant. It is a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant and appetite suppressant. For its euphoretic effect, cocaine is often used recreationally, and it is one of the most common drugs of abuse and addiction. Cocaine is also used as a topical anaesthetic in eye, throat and nose surgery. Possession, cultivation and distribution of cocaine is illegal for non-medicinal and non-government sanctioned purposes virtually all over the world. The side-effects of cocaine include twitching, paranoia and impotence, which usually increase with frequent usage. With excessive dosage it produces hallucinations, paranoid delusions, tachycardia, itching and formication. Cocaine overdose leads to tachyarrhythmias and elevated blood pressure, and can be fatal.

Alkyl Sulfonates

The toxic effects of busulfan are related to its myelosuppressive properties prolonged throm-bocytopenia may occur. Occasional patients experience nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Long-term use leads to impotence, sterility, amenorrhea, and fetal malformation. Rarely, patients develop asthenia and hypotension. High-dose busulfan causes VOD of the liver in up to 10 of patients, as well as seizures, hemorrhagic cystitis, alopecia, and cataracts. The coincidence of VOD and hepatotoxicity is increased by its coadministration with drugs that inhibit CYPs, including imidazoles and metronidazole, possibly by inhibition of the clearance of busulfan and or its toxic metabolites.

Estramustine

Of metastatic or progressive prostate cancer at a usual initial dose of 10-16 mg kg daily in 3 or 4 divided doses. Following oral administration, at least 75 of a dose of estramustine is absorbed from the GI tract and rapidly dephosphorylated. Estramustine is found in the body mainly as its oxidized 17-keto analog isomer, estromustine both forms accumulate in the prostate. Some hydrolysis of the carbamate linkage occurs in the liver, releasing estradiol, estrone, and the normustine group. Estramustine and estromustine have plasma t1 2 of 10-20 hours, respectively, and are excreted with their metabolites, mainly in the feces. In addition to myelosuppression, estramustine also possesses estrogenic side effects (gynecomastia, impotence, and elevated risk of thrombosis, and fluid retention) and is associated with hypercalcemia, acute attacks of porphyria, impaired glucose tolerance, and hypersensitivity reactions including angioedema.
