Thread: Maxi-K for Erectile Dysfunction - Killed by Pharma Mafia?

  1. #1

    Default Maxi-K for Erectile Dysfunction - Killed by Pharma Mafia?

    there was a very good treatment for erectile dysfunction based on gene therapy. is was so good that it was hailed as a cure. it passed FDA trials with flying colors. the last time i heard news about it was 2011. since then, its "disappeared". the medication is called Maxi-K.

    i highly suspect that the pharma mafia like Pfizer and Bayer may have "silenced" the conpany that makes it with millions (maybe billions) of dollars. can someone tell me otherwise? i want to get this treatment. but i'm afraid that it may have been bribed out of existence.

    These are the most up to date articles I could find. Many time, you can contact the authors or the doctors involved to get more information. From what I can tell the hMaxi-K gene transfer may still be undergoing clinical evaluation. It sometimes takes years before a treatment becomes available. It wouldn't hurt to follow up however. You could even contact the American Urological Society.

    Gene Therapy Advances Could Cure Impotence!

    Concept at a Glance
    ------------------------------------------------------

    hMaxi-K, as briefly mentioned above, is not something that is available right now. The DNA-based drug is still under research, and is claimed to give long-lasting and stronger erections. It is claimed that such gene-based therapy may one day make drugs like Viagra® and non-prescription natural aphrodisiac blends obsolete. However, while hMaxi-K may definitely provide relief to those suffering from acute forms of ED and Pyronie’s disease, it may not normally be recommended for those with less severe problems.

    They just completed a clinical trial using it for overactive bladder.
    http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT00495053

    2012
    Ion Channel Innovations, LLC listed in GlobalData's "Overactive Bladder (OAB) Therapeutics Pipeline assessment and Market Forecasts to 2019" as a player in up and coming therapies for treatment of OAB.

    Ion Channel Innovations newly renovated laboratory space in room 6c32 of the Van Etten Building leased from Albert Einstein Medical School is now ready for animal research projects.

    The abstract entitled Long-Term Results of a Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Study Evaluating the Safety and Potential Activity of Escalating Doses of hMaxi-K Gene Transfer in Female Participants with Overactive Bladder and Detrusor Overactivity was presented at the American Society of Gene and Cellular Therapy's 15th Annual Meeting, May 16-19, 2012 in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

    The company's second NIH sponsored small business (SBIR) grant entitled, "Development of hMaxi-K bladder wall injection for overactive bladder treatment", was begun on September 1. Dr. Sharon Jacobs is the principal investigator of the grant that will be done in two phases. The first phase is a preliminary bladder wall injection in animals. The second phase is a human trial of the company's hMaxi-K product that will be administered directly into the bladder wall of women with urinary urgency frequency and incontinence. The trial is expected to begin in April, 2013.

    SEPTEMBER 2009
    Ion Channel Innovations, LLC submits a grant entitled to the National Institutes of Health "A phase 2 multicenter study evaluating the safety and activity of two escalating doses of hMaxi-K gene transfer in men with erectile dysfunction of 6 months duration: a double blind, placebo controlled design within 2 sequential active treatments." If funded the trial will be managed by CE3, Inc., 491 Main Street, Branford, CT. The IRB and IBC will be Biomedical Research Alliance of New York, 1981 Marcus Avenue, Suite 210, Lake Success NY 11042. The submission is under the Title: Recovery Act limited competition: Biomedical Research, Development, and Growth to Spur the Acceleration of New Technologies (BRDG-SPAN) Pilot Program (RC3), RFA-OD-008.

    Since you are looking for something in NY, you might want to contact Dr. Melman. http://www.drarnoldmelman.com/

    Dr. Melman presented at this meeting a few years ago. He has an active practice in NY.
    Dr. Arnold Melman is invited to present, "Gene Therapy for the therapy of Erectile Dysfunction," to the National Society Sex Therapy and Research (SSTAR) at their Fall clinical meeting on the 25th in New York City.
    First treatment in 2007. Pioneering ever since.

    i know.. i really do hate the FDA. only god knows how many excellent medicines it shot down through the excuse of "safety" being paid under the table by the pharmafia.

    Default Prostate Cancer IBS and Viagra..:( Please help?

    Hi-My name is Jose and I am 59 years young, and I have IBS and prostate cancer. I will be starting my prostate cancer treatments the last week of October and my doctor prescribed me Viagra that I am supposed to take beginning the week before my treatment begins. I don't have a lot of money (the treatment is taking every bit of my HSA) and he told me there were places online I could buy it and save some money, as Im going to be working a lot less during the treatments. Also, I am wondering if anyone has taken Viagra and if it affected your IBS at all?

    I found a place that sells it but I don't know how to order something like this. I'm also a bit embarrassed and I dont want to call their customer service line.

    You need a prescription. Get over your embarrassment and call the customer service line.
