Introducing The Erectus Shot®!- Natural Male Enhancement

The newest technology in erectile dysfunction is here! The Erectus Shot® uses your own body to help you get better erections.

Eterna MD introduces the revolutionary Erectus Shot®. This natural male enhancement treatment utilizes stem cells and growth factors derived from your own body. The Erectus Shot® targets male enhancement by assisting in regeneration of the penile tissue to support a stronger sexual performance and erections and size. Functioning alongside your body’s own regenerative properties to increase erection quality and circulation to the penis, this treatment aims to support a healthier organ as an alternative to seeking other male enhancement medicines. Other advantages of the Erectus Shot® include the minimal to no downtime experienced post -treatment, along with being virtually painless. Little to no side effects are experienced as the treatment is autologous, meaning it is derived from your own body. (* Results may vary from person to person)

Definition Of ED

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is defined by the inability to sustain a penile erection throughout sexual performance. According to the National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS), 10% of men reported being unable to maintain an erection. Erectile Dysfunction may result from (1) failure to initiate, (2) failure to fill, or (3) failure to store necessary blood volume within the lacunar network1. Although certain treatments like phosphodiesterase type V inhibitors are very effective, they are not able to re-establish functionality in all patients. The incidence of ED is higher in men with diabetes mellitus, heart disease, and hypertension. Often times, the drugs used to treat these conditions also affect ED.

Additionally, men that undergo radical prostatectomy may suffer from ED due to damage to penile cells. In general ED can result from a neurogenic condition, smooth muscle dysfunction, or endothelial dysfunction. Studies have shown that adipose-derived stem cells can differentiate into cells of any of the categories mentioned 3. This makes this therapy an alternative to patients facing a lifetime of drug intake to relieve the symptoms temporarily. This therapy has the potential of re-establishing functionality by regenerating the tissues directly involved with penile erection. Recent studies have focused on the use of adult stem cells in patients with ED. According to Lin et al., stem cells found in adipose tissue have the ability to differentiate into endothelial cells and aid in blood vessel formation. The smooth muscle is a major contributor to a normal penile erection.3 Rodriguez LV et al. along with other research helped establish the ability of Adipose-derived stem cell to differentiate into smooth muscle cells.5

Recent studies have identified adipose tissue as a new source of mesenchymal stem cells; some of which may be suitable for the restoration of penile erection.[1]3,4 As lipoaspiration provides relatively simple access to this stem cell pool, and with the large numbers of cells present in adipose tissue, its future potential as a stem cell reservoir for cell therapy is promising.

Autologous Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells (ASCs)

ASCs are a novel therapy for patients suffering from Erectile Dysfunction.  By injecting ASCs, these regions may become populated with the ASCs, thereby potentially restoring erection. ASCs are a patient-derived (“autologous”) cell transplantation technology that is delivered to the patient.  The therapy is composed of cells derived from a patients’ own adipose tissue that are isolated within approximately 1 hour and immediately delivered back to the patient. Cell therapy is not intended as a temporary solution, but a new alternative allowing natural repair of diseased organs and tissues using the patient’s own cells. The ASCs product candidate is a proposed treatment for patients suffering from Erectile Dysfunction.  This product candidate contains adipose tissue-derived stromal cells.  By delivering ASCs into the corpus carvernosum of the penis, these regions may become populated with cells that may have the ability to restore erection.

A biological product candidate, the ASCs consist of autologous endothelial and stem cells.  The ASCs are extracted from autologous adipose tissue by density centrifugation which includes a purification and selection of the ASCs which are then injected with the aim of restoring erection.  These cells are not cultured but are isolated from adipose tissue using a sterile tissue process in under two hours.  The process includes rinsing, draining, enzymatic digesting and isolating endothelial cells from adipose tissue.  After processing, the isolated pellet of cells is retrieved for delivery to the patient. The product candidate may be suspended in platelet rich plasma (PRP) for delivery into the Corpus Cavernosum.  It is anticipated that the ASCs will be provided on a custom-patient basis from approximately 60cc adipose tissue usually taken from the patient’s subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue or applicable region.  The stromal vascular fraction will be subsequently isolated and purified from the adipose tissue then loaded into a syringe that can then be attached to the delivery system and be delivered to the patients. Following delivery, the cells may populate the Corpus Cavernosum of the penis.
