TriMix-gel® is planning to investigate TriMix-gel® as a penile tissue rehabilitation agent. New trials will study repeated daily use of TriMix-gel® to determine if use can raise the oxygen tension level of penile tissue.
A large percentage of patients suffering from co-morbidities such as diabetes, post radical prostatectomy, hypercholesterolemia/atherosclerosis or heart disease, demonstrate subnormal levels of oxygen in the penile tissue.
For instance, a post-radical prostatectomy patient often will lose the ability for nocturnal erections. Nocturnal erections are important to the health of penile tissue because erections occurring during sleep supply needed oxygen to the penile tissues. Nocturnal erections are thought to be a significant factor in overall penile health and therefore the ability to achieve and maintain an erection for sexual activity.
The trial will be targeted to confirm the rise of oxygen level in penile tissue and to determine if there is a rehabilitative effect on penile tissue for patients who may suffer from hyperglycemia, atherosclerosis, post radical prostatectomy, smoking history, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, poor blood flow, and so forth.
