QuoteI'm going to aks for an ultrasound and hope i don't see any calcification
QuoteThere are several types of "calcification." A color Doppler ultrasound can determine if calcification has occurred, and the type that is present. After the drug becomes available, I expect there to be fewer exclusions than were imposed for the studies.
Quote from: funnyfarm on February 03, 2013, 06:04:42 PMIt might be good if this means the FDA will look at this more carefully. Personally I am not convinced Xiaflex is a safe option for treating Peyronies Disease right now. The drug is derived from Clostridium histolyticum, a bacteria that induces necrosis in wounds. We know it helps some some guys, but the drug maker did not disclose details about the guys that got worse. So similiar to surgery I would consider it a last line of defense. And I would not want to be one of the "early adopters". It will take a number of years to figure out the optimum dosage, frequency, and which doctors have the best technique/results.
Quote from: betseyagopian on May 17, 2013, 02:57:41 AMHey guys! I've had an appointment today with my Urologist...he told me that Xiaflex was approved. Actually he didn't say "Xiaflex", he mentioned the drug "collagenase". So I asked him, "you mean Xiaflex?", and he said, "Well, Xiaflex is one of the brand names".
QuoteI would be cautious about taking Chinese herbal remedies
