Want Viagra? Get A Note From Your Wife, Kentucky Lawmaker Says

A female Kentucky state legislator has introduced a bill that would require men who want to use erectile dysfunction drugs like Cialis, Viagra or Levitra to get a note from their wife first. Then they'd have to make two visits to a doctor and promise to only take the pills before sex with a spouse. Kentucky Rep. Mary Lou Marzian (D) introduced the bill on Thursday as a way to protect men's health and ensure they are informed about a drug with potentially dangerous side effects, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. "I want to protect these men from themselves," said Marzian, a retired nurse. Marzian told The Huffington Post that her proposed law is really a tongue-in-cheek way of pointing out how anti-abortion advocates want to involve the government in people's bedrooms. She said her legislation shows government needn't be involved in personal choices, "whether it be about abortion, erectile dysfunction or blood transfusions for Jehovah's Witnesses."  "Six anti-choice bills have been introduced since the beginning of the year," Marzian pointed out.  One of them, signed by new Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, is an informed consent bill that requires women to visit with a health care provider before getting an abortion, according to WDRB.com. Marzian told the station that the government should insert itself into the personal, private dec...

ConclusionSurvival in patients with ATTR-PN is highly variable and affected by non-cardiac baseline characteristics, such as autonomic dysfunction, large fiber involvement, late-onset disease, and non-Val30Met mutation. Careful interpretation of these findings is warranted given that this synthesis did not control for differences between studies. Survival in patients with ATTR-PN remains poor among those who are untreated or with delayed diagnosis.

Conclusions: PF has typical clinical presentation and no need for additional tests in most cases. Hematoma and immediate penile detumescence are the most common clinical findings. Sexual activity was the most common cause. The ‘ doggy style ’ and ‘ man-on-top ’ was the most common positions and generally associated with more severe lesions. Concomitant urethral injury should be considered in cases of highenergy trauma. Surgical reconstruction produces satisfactory results, however, it can lead to complications, such as erectile dysfunction and penile curvature.

Resistance toward current and new classes of anti-tuberculosis (anti-TB) antibiotics are rapidly emerging; thus, innovative therapies focused on host processes, termed host-directed therapies (HDTs), are promising novel approaches for shortening therapy regimens without inducing drug resistance. Development of new TB drugs is lengthy and expensive, and success is not guaranteed; thus, alternatives are needed. Repurposed drugs have already passed Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as well as European Medicines Agency (EMA) safety requirements and may only need to prove efficacy against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb). Pho...
