New Study Using Anti-Oxidants
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:58:25 PM »

This is a very interesting study using combinations of:Silymarin+ Ginkgo+ vitamin E+ propolis+ bilberry+ topical diclofenac + pentoxifylline injections. They had 5 groups using one or more of the above. The results were very significant!

That is a big result and the actual treatment would not be hard to follow, except for the pentox injections.

Diclofenac gel/spray is just Voltaren.

I've very interested in this. I'm tempted to rush out and buy as many of the supplements used, but I'm wary. When I realized I was losing my hair I tried supplements and creams galore. Saw palmetto and propecia may have contributed to my peyronies. It certainly decreased my night time erections, and we all know we need healthy blood flow in the penis to prevent peryonies.

Anyway, I'm interested in hearing from anyone on this board who has tried silymarin, ginko biloba, propolis, bilberry, and/or any combination of them.

Yes I tried it during the active phase for pain control and it seemed to reduce the pain by about 50 percent.  I used the strong formulation which is 2.3 percent.

I called the pharmacist who indicated there is both a 1% and 3% Diclofec gel.  I'm trying the 3%, will increase by 25% to match the 4% gel in the study and report back with any progress.  I have also ordered the antioxidants used in the study.

Thanks for the update Tsanchez

I am not surprised it didn't help.
From reading all the posts on the forum for many years, very rarely I read about some topical treatment that helped with Peyronies

Has anyone heard of the PTX100 injections?  Is thus pentox  and is it injected into the plaque?

would you apply the voltaren/diclofenac on the shaft or on the glans where it gets absorbed more readily?

how would it ever penetrate to the plaque? the skin moves, it's like a glove on top. At least for an uncut penis like mine... I'm confused, maybe circumcised penises have a better chance of success from topical treatments?

Topical treatments IMO don't go deep enough, as pey ron has said the skin is like a glove, I am uncut also  :-\

I believe it relates to the molecular weight of the topical.
