Stem cell strategy for boosting testosterone levels tested in rodents
Male hypogonadism is a condition that diminishes testosterone levels in approximately 30% of older men, but currently available therapies can produce serious side effects. In a new study, researchers developed an alternative approach involving the direct conversion of adult skin cells into functional testosterone-producing cells. When transplanted into male rodents with hypogonadism, these so-called Leydig-like cells survived and restored normal testosterone levels. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

This study points out a couple of interesting findings that men and their doctors should take note of -- one is that a man with ED should be considered to be at a greater risk of osteoporosis and two, that men with ED should be examined for osteoporosis by having a bone mineral density test, a simple and noninvasive method to evaluate this. In addition, a man with osteoporosis should be evaluated for ED. Men can avoid osteoporosis by taking the following steps: • Avoid smoking, reduce alcohol intake and increase weight bearing physical activity • Consume at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium daily for men ages ...

In Klinefelter Syndrome Patients, What are the Common Behavioral Problems?
Discussion Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is a common genetic abnormaly with a prevalence of 1 in ~650 male births. It was first described in 1942 by Dr. Harry Klinefelter. It is associated with at least one extra X chromosome with the most common karyotype (~80% of patients) being 47 XXY. Other karyotypes are seen along with mosaicism. It is believed that although it is very prevalent, only about 25-33% of people with KS are identified. About 10% are identified before puberty with the rest usually identified because of hypogonadism and tall stature especially in teenage years or due to infertility in adulthood. KS is diagnosed...
