Male miracle! New stem-cell 'Viagra' sex treatment actually makes penis bigger

2 min read

Trials have succeeded in injecting 20m stem cells into the base of the penis to reinvigorate the nerves and blood vessels – but researchers noticed the treatment also made the organ larger.

Professor Soren Sheikh, director of the Danish Centre for Regenerative Medicine, told the Sunday Times that stem cell injections can reverse the degeneration of nerves and blood vessels in the penis following the removal of prostate glands due to cancer.

The treatment could also help men with erectile dysfunctions due to causes such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and ageing.

The team have successfully treated eight men in an early trial and are waiting results for more.

Mr Sheikh said: “Stem cells can grow into many of the body’s main tissues.

“They are very good at building blood vessels.”

Men have liposuction to extract half a pint of fat cells from their abdomen in the treatmet, which is then seperated out in a centrifuge and injected back into the penis.

Last month viagra became available to buy over the counter for £20 without a prescription.

Around one in five men suffer from erectile problems, which is about 4.3 million British men and prescriptions of Viagra have tripled in the UK in a decade.

Viagra, which has the medical name of Sildenafil, has been available to buy since 1998.

Mr Sheikh is due to reveal more details at the meeting in July of the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology in Barcelona.

However, scientists have warned that it could take years and more trials for this to be a real competitor to Viagra.
