Stem cells shown to restore erection capability in men with erectile dysfunction

European Association of Urology 22 March 2017 New clinical trial results show that stem cells can restore sufficient erectile function to allow previously impotent men to have spontaneous intercourse. This is the first time stem cell therapy has produced patients who have recovered sufficient erectile function to enable intercourse. This is an early trial, which…
