Global Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Market is Expected to Reach USD 3.4 Billion in 2019: Transparency Market Research


Albany, NY (PRWEB) March 03, 2014

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Market (Viagra, Cialis, Levitra/Staxyn, Stendra/Spedra, Zydena, MUSE, Mvix and Helleva) -Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019,” the global erectile dysfunction drugs market was valued at USD 4.3 billion in 2012 and is expected to decline at a CAGR of (4.5%) from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 3.4 billion in 2019.

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to attain or maintain penile erection in men, sufficient for successful sexual intercourse. Erectile dysfunction is a common medical disorder primarily affecting men older than 40 years of age. In addition, other than the typical causes of erectile dysfunction, such as diabetes and hypertension, a number of common lifestyle related factors are also associated with development of the condition. These include obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, use of recreational drugs, and poor physical and psychological health. Commonly, oral drugs belonging to the PDE 5 inhibitors class form the mainstay of erectile dysfunction treatment. Other treatment options include lifestyle modification, testosterone therapy, penile devices, injection therapies and psychotherapy.

The global market for erectile dysfunction drugs has been studied from the perspective of currently marketed branded drugs and pipeline drugs. Branded drugs include Viagra (sildenafil citrate), Cialis (tadalafil), Levitra/Staxyn (vardenafil), Stendra/Spedra (avanafil), Zydena (udenafil), MUSE (medicated urethral systems for erection), Mvix (mirodenafil) and Helleva (lodenafil). The drugs in the pipeline for erectile dysfunction treatment primarily consist of two major drugs, namely Vitaros (alprostadil) and Uprima (apomorphine) currently in later phases of clinical trials.

In 2012, Viagra (sildenafil citrate) accounted for the largest share (45%) by revenue of the total erectile dysfunction drugs market. However, due to the loss of the drug’s patent exclusivity in Europe and other countries in 2013, the overall market revenue is expected to decline during the forecast period as international markets contribute considerably to the overall market revenue of the drug. In the U.S. market, Viagra will continue to maintain a major revenue share due to its extended patent exclusivity till 2020. The market for Cialis (tadalafil) accounted for the second largest share at USD 1,926.8 million, in 2012. However, it is expected to witness a decline in market revenue at a CAGR of (12.6%) from 2013 to 2019, owing to loss of patent exclusivity in 2017. In addition, the patent for Bayer’s Levitra/Staxyn (vardenafil) is scheduled to expire in 2018 and is thus expected to contribute to the declining market revenue.

A few novel compounds are currently under investigation in both preclinical and clinical settings, for the treatment of impotency. These studies are majorly focused on medications with improved efficacy, shorter onset of action and fewer side effects as compared to the currently available treatments. Such pipeline drugs include Vitaros (alprostadil), Uprima (apomorphine) and Topiglan (alprostadil), amongst others.

Geographically, North America dominated the global market for erectile dysfunction drugs in terms of revenue generation and is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period. The extended patent exclusivity for Pfizer’s Viagra (sildenafil citrate) in the U.S., till 2020, will be responsible for the leadership of the North American market. Europe was the second largest regional market for erectile dysfunction drugs in 2012, owing to the increased demand for ED drugs. Market growth will also be facilitated by the expected marketing approvals for a few promising drug candidates such as Stendra/Spedra (avanafil) and Zydena (udenafil) by mid 2014.

Most Dietary Supplements Don’t Help Your Heart and Some May Be Harmful, From the August 2014 Harvard Heart Letter


Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 05, 2014

Every day, about half of American adults take a vitamin, mineral, herb, amino acid, or other dietary supplement. Most do this because they seek to improve or maintain their health. Others do it in hopes of staving off heart disease. Yet only a handful of supplements offer possiblethough limitedhelp against heart disease. Some popular ones have no benefit, and others contain dangerous contaminants, reports the August 2014 Harvard Heart Letter.

“A lot of people want to add something natural and alternative to the conventional medications they’re taking, and they assume that dietary supplements might help and can’t hurt,” says Dr. Pieter Cohen, a dietary supplement safety researcher and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. But that’s not the case.

Unlike pharmaceuticals, which undergo extensive testing to prove they’re effective and safe before they can be sold, dietary supplements can be sold without proof of effectiveness or safety. Moreover, supplement makers can claim their products improve health, even when there’s little or no evidence to support such claims.

Multivitamins are one of the most popular supplements taken by people trying to prevent heart disease. But large, “gold standard” trials have shown that taking a daily multivitamin does not ward off heart disease. Small studies suggest that some dietary supplements, such as red yeast rice, lowers cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease. Yet the amount of the active ingredient in red yeast rice products varies widely, from very low to very high. And up to one-third of red rice yeasts products may be contaminated with a kidney toxin called citrinin.

Such contamination isn’t rare. As Dr. Cohen noted in a perspective in The New England Journal of Medicine, the FDA has found more than 500 supplements adulterated with pharmaceuticals or closely related compounds. The offenders include stimulants, body-building steroids, antidepressants, weight-loss medications, and supplements aimed at treating erectile dysfunction. All can cause unwanted side effects and may be especially risky when taken with heart drugs or other prescription medications.

Because of the potential risks and unclear benefits of dietary supplements, most doctors advise their patients to avoid them, though they may recommend specific supplements such as calcium and vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis.

For most people, “a well-balanced diet rich in whole foods including fruits, vegetables, fish, olive oil, and nuts negates the need for any supplements,” says Dr. Cohen.

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP Notes Concern over Growing Number of Low T Diagnoses

Rockville Centre, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

Low testosterone, or Low T, is poised to surpass erectile dysfunction as the most popular mens health issue. The number of prescriptions written by doctors for testosterone therapy drugs like AndroGel , has become a multi-billion dollar business for pharmaceutical companies, raising concerns among some in the medical community. The Rottenstein Law Group, LLP notes this growing concern, as well as the potential for injuries to occur in men who might not be ideal candidates for this increasingly popular form of treatment.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the number of prescriptions written for testosterone has more than tripled in the past decade,* and Low T clinics promising renewed virility to men have leading urologists concerned. In most doctors offices, you dont see a big shingle over their door saying, Get your testosterone here! Dr. Edward Karpman, a board-certified urologist told Kaiser Health News. Any man who presents, especially in his 40s and 50s, with new onset erectile dysfunction is at an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and even heart attack or myocardial infarction, he added.** A recent study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, PLOS One, supports Dr. Karpmans opinion, showing that the risk of heart attacks and strokes among men over the age of 55 who use testosterone has doubled.***

The latest figures about the increased risk for heart attacks in men who undergo testosterone therapy are quite concerning, said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. Patients and doctors might not be fully aware of the adverse side effects, but we are beginning to understand that the risks might outweigh the benefits.

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages anyone who believes they or a loved one have been injured during testosterone therapy to speak to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit to obtain compensation from the manufacturer of the prescription drug.

Up and Coming Nitric Oxide Supplements Company Nitrosolution.com Celebrates its One Year Anniversary


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

Nitrosolution.com, a website that features safe and all-natural nitric oxide supplements, will celebrate its first anniversary in August. The online retailer specializes in an all-natural supplement that is designed to enhance the bodys ability to produce nitric oxide. Called Nitroxyl, it is an original formula that is made up of a variety of phytonutrients and other natural ingredients that a company spokesperson said have been found to increase nitric oxide production in the arteries and brain.

As the spokesperson for http://www.nitrosolution.com noted, almost four decades ago researchers discovered that nitric oxide is involved in helping the smooth muscles of the artery walls to relax, which in turn leads to lower blood pressure. Ten years later, nitric oxide was identified as the molecule that helped to regulate blood pressure, as well as preventing the build-up of plaque on the artery walls.

Because cardiovascular disease was then, and is now, the leading cause of death in the industrialized world, this discovery is considered today to be the most important discovery in history pertaining to the cause and prevention of heart attack and stroke, the company spokesperson noted, adding that some studies have indicated that low nitric oxide levels are a key factor in developing cardiovascular diseaseespecially in people over the age of 40.

Nitroxyl is the only nitric oxide supplement at the moment that combines nutrients with the greatest amount of validation in the medical literature and has added ingredients to maximize the benet of increased nitric oxide production to the heart, arteries, brain, intestinal tract, and other tissues.

Anybody who would like to learn more about Nitrosolution.com is welcome to visit the companys user-friendly website; there, they can read a wide variety of in-depth and educational articles about the benefits of increased nitric oxide production, as well as information about the high quality Nitroxyl supplement.

About Nitrosolution.com:

Nitrosolution.com is a website that offers an effective and all-natural nitric oxide boosting supplement called Nitroxyl. Nitroxyl is an original formulation comprised of nutrients and phytonutrients that have been proven to enhance the body’s ability to produce nitric oxide. According to the website, the comprehensive formula is the most powerful nitric oxide enhancer that is currently available. Nitroxyl may prevent or treat all diseases associated with aging; these include heart attacks, diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, erectile dysfunction, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and many others.

Maggie's - Avalon, NJ














Maggie's - Avalon, NJ

As summer comes to an end, Juan hits us with a benny review from the shore...

That's right folks. Juan took a trip "down the shore" just to review a benny for you! That's not true, but I do know a lot of you Philly cats spend your weekends down there so I figured I'd check out a place where you can find a benny. Maggie's has a real nice deck, perfect for the outdoor brunch experience. This benny looks pretty good and perfectly lit by some quality beach side sunshine, right? Don't be deceived. This one ranks among the lowest for me. Completely standard, nothing special. Totally drowning in hollandaise! The potatoes were probably the saving grace of this entire dish. I'm going to leave the garbage and Jersey like I should have in the first place and only eat bennys from the 215 from here on out. - Juan

Continental - Olde City














Continental - Olde City - 2nd & Market

Our first brunch experience from one of Mr. Starr's establishments... I was not blown away. As visually appealing as this benny is, it was just about standard. The ham was cut really thin, couldn't taste it as much as I would have liked to. Potatoes were above average, cleverly cut like ruffles potato chips. I will say this benny was reasonably priced at $8.50, however the bloody mary was certainly not at $10. You heard right, my drink was more expensive than my meal. Service was sub-par but there was no shortage of hot lil chickens working at that place, I guess that's the sacrifice. Really not much to say about this benny, it was average. - Juan

Caribou Cafe














Caribou Cafe - 11th and Walnut

Oeufs benedicte w/ merguez lamb sausage

This benny right here was an absolute hit. Garlic muffins, spinach, tomato hollandaise and merguez lamb sausage. The lamb sausage was out of this world, spiced to perfection. Potatoes were also fantastic, tasted like they came off a grille. The Caribou is a nice place, a little swank for your typical hungover weekend brunch, and the price reflects. If I had to say something negative about this benny (which I do) it would be about the meat/egg distribution. As you'll notice in the photo, one muffin was topped with the sausage, the other with an egg. First time I've seen this approach. I'd prefer sausage and egg on BOTH of my muffins please. This benny was too good to be shorted an egg! - Juan

4 out of 5
















Oeufs benedicte w/ hangar steak

Not much of a difference here, other than the meat. I do recall my eggs being slightly overdone, which can make or break a benny. I had a taste of Juan's lamb sausage benny and I must say that if I ever returned to the Caribou Cafe, I'd go with that instead of the hangar steak. Presented in the same fashion, the hangar steak benny was pretty decent. The steak itself came out medium-medium well, which is usually how I order my steak. Caribou also offers a salmon benny which unfortunately wasn't reviewed. C. Hunte could have completed the trifecta, but his weak stomach isn't cut out for the world of benny reviewing. Poor guy.

St. Stephen's Green - 1701 Green St.

There was a time where I would go to St. Stephens Green just about every week for drinks. I didn't know they served brunch until a week ago, and apparently I've been missing out because its hittin. They offer two bennys, a standard benny, and the Florentine Crab benny, which consists of spinach, crab, two poached eggs, and tarragon sauce choron on english muffins. Great benny, great presentation. Somebody suggest a less than stellar benny so I can stop with these gracious ratings.

Silk City














Silk City - 5th and Spring Garden

El Ciudad. Most people who aren't in the know front on Silk City when they see it, and write it off as another grimey diner based on its outer shell. Little do they know that inside lies some of the best food No. Libs has to offer. Their benedict is pretty much your standard benny, with the exception of the meat. Canadian bacon, yes, but 3 pieces of Canadian bacon. Two placed in the classic fashion we all know and love, BUT a third creating a bridge from one benny to the next, as if to help you segue seamlessly into the other benny. Genius.

A Full Plate














A Full Plate - 1009 N. Bodine St

'Go and eat brunch at A Full Plate' should be #1 on your list of plans this weekend. What you see pictured is their Crabcake benny. Two crabcakes topped with mozzarella cheese and poached eggs. One of the best bennys I've had in quite some time. After much discussion with my fellow benny connesieurs, I've determined that A Full Plate is cheating. The crabcakes alone are a meal in and of themselves. They just decided to slap some poached eggs on top to contend with the Abbaye for the number one position on my super important blog. I'm on to you Full Plate...

New Wave Cafe













New Wave Cafe - 784 S. 3rd St.

This picture of the New Wave benny looks about as traditional as an eggs benedict can get. English muffin, ham, poached eggs and bearnaise sauce (gotcha). Very decent benny. Nothing to get too excited about, but I would definitely have another if I found myself looking for a brunch spot in Queen Village. 3/7th's of the Christian St. ladies dug it. I think you will too.

Cafe Estelle














Cafe Estelle - 444 N. 4th Street

Eggs Benny

This benny here reminds me a joke someone once told me, it went something like this. "Apparently smaller cars, cell phones, and laptop computers are really in style right now. Maybe someday smaller penises will be in style...and YOU my friend, will be a legend". Well apparently smaller bennys are in style now too, and I couldn't be more disappointed. I grasp (but do not enjoy) that whole smaller portions trend but c'mon! This is not T.G.I. Fridays people, this is BRUNCH we're talking about. All things aside, this was an outstanding benny. Thinly sliced ham, perfects eggs and hollandaise sauce on a toasty little biscuit. Home fries were also excellent. You should also be aware that Cafe Estelle is a pour-your-own coffee place with 4 different blends to chose from. You also receive a cup to-go after paying. We dig this about you Estelle. Awesome benny, but I left hungry.

This was a solid 4-egg benny but Im knocking it down to 3.5 due to size.

3.5 out of 5














Eggs Francis

Similar story with the Eggs Francis. Great benny, but a bit on the small side. Shrimp, artichokes, bernaise sauce, all on top of an English Muffin fit for a baby. The benny kids meal, the White Castle equivalent of the benny, etc. Don't get it twisted, just because I could have easily eaten 2 more of these doesn't mean that the taste was lacking. A good amount of shrimp/artichokes despite the surface area of the English Muffin!

I highly recommend Cafe Estelle.

The Belgian Cafe


















The Belgian Cafe - 21st and Green

I admire any benny that deviates from the norm. In the case of The Belgian Cafe, substituting a Liege waffle for an english muffin seemed ballsy when I first read about it. The waffle, combined with Lancaster ham, poached eggs, and some asparagus made for a surprisingly average benny. Did I expect more out of it? Probably. Was it bad? No. Would I order it again? Probably not.

While I realize that the focus of this blog is on the benny itself, I'd like to stress the importance of potatoes during brunch. Hash browns, home fries, frites, latke... these things matter!

The Sidecar Bar














The Sidecar Bar - 22nd and Christian

Eggs Hussarde

Cajun Tasso ham, broiled tomato, Marchand de Vin sauce, and hollandaise on an english muffin served with potatoes and a salad. A full plate indeed. I wasn't sure what to expect out of the Eggs Hussarde as I've never had this variation of the benny, but it really didn't taste that much different from a regular benny to me. However, the Cajun Tasso ham was noticably different. Great benny, great service.

4 out of 5


















Re-New Orleans

You know Juan had to provide hope to the people after Hurricane Katrina... so what did he do? Order the Re-New Orleans eggs benedict! Definitely a change of pace here. No, your eyes are not deceiving you. There is no english muffin OR biscuit under that benny. That my friends, is Crawfish-potato hash. It was incredible, tons of crawfish. Add a couple of poached eggs topped with smoke tomato Choron sauce and you've got the Re-New Orleans. This dish definitely had some of that "Nawlans" creole soul-food spice to it. Off the hook, would also be great to eat for lunch or dinner. Served with a side salad, this may be the first benny that didn't make me want to kill myself after consuming it - Quite refreshing. There's a reason why the lights from the heavens are shining down on the picture of the Re-New Orleans and not the Hussarde. Go find out for yourself

Zot














Zot - 122 Lombard Street

This was the weekend I did the impossible. Two bennys in two days. The surgeon general disapproves of even consuming one benny per month, let alone two in two days.

Sunday morning record store trek to west philly with Eli turns into a visit to ZOT, a hidden belgian beer spot that could most definitely hang with Monks... PLUS they serve brunch on Sunday! Frites, homemade biscuits, poached eggs, bernaise sauce (!), and fried prosciutto instead of bacon.

4 out of 5


Where's the bacon you might ask?....




















Bacon's in the vodka!!!
$3 Bloody Mary's on Sundays.

*** Zot has recently altered their benny... another review coming soon!

Sabrina's Cafe (Fairmount)














Sabrina's Cafe - 1804 Callowhill Street

One of two Sabrina's reviews as their Eggs Benedict Florentine DOES taste different at each location. Sabrina's is usually packed, but the homie Raws and I were lucky enough to find some seats at the bar. After Luke explained to the waitress that I was an "Eggs Benedict Connoisseur" and my blood is actually 43% hollandaise sauce... it was time to get down on the Eggs Benedict Florentine. This is their bare bones benny, and I couldn't be more satisfied with it.... just wish it wasn't so damn crowded at this spot!

Side: minutes later, I finally scored a copy of the crazy rare Eugene Mcdaniels LP, Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse

A sip of the juice:



Royal Tavern














Royal Tavern - 937 E Passyunk Ave.

Juan and I ventured to south phil for the Royal Tavern's Eggs Blackstone. Poached eggs, biscuits, fried tomatoes, crumbled bacon, hollandaise sauce, and hash browns. I'm not really quite sure how to explain this, but this benny got better over time. I felt like something was off about the first biscuit, but the second one regained my faith in the Blackstone.

3.5 out of 5

Dos Segundos














Dos Segundos - 931 N. 2nd Street

Not your classic eggs benedict. Listed as "Huevos Dos Segundos", this is more of a mexican take on the eggs benedict. Sopes are substituted for english muffins, and I believe there were some refried beans in there as well. An interesting dish, but not something I would order regularly.

3.5 out of 5

N. 3rd














N. 3rd - 3rd and Brown


Your classic eggs benedict. Nothing spectacular upon first glance, but this turned out to be a decent benny. Hollandaise sauce was a little sweet for my taste (very similar to Sabrinas). They also have a salmon & tomato benny which I'll be getting into sometime in the near future.

3.5 out of 5

Abbaye














The Abbaye - 3rd and Fairmount

Regular Eggs Benedict... perfection in a benny. Homemade biscuits & the perfect amount of hollandaise sauce.

5 out of 5.

Juan's dish is pictured, so here's his review:

Always a great selection here. Biscuits, eggs and hollandaise are all superb. And look at those potatoes?! Crispy and delicious, best of the city thus far. My only side-note is that I prefer the classic canadian bacon as opposed to the regular bacon pictured here. Otherwise, no complaints. The Abbaye is our home-field of breakfast spots, if you will. You'll never once wait for a table (all of you suckers waiting out front of Honeys need to get a clue) and the home of Jorge, only the best server in the 215.

Im giving a 4.5 out of 5.
















The Texas Benedict

"It takes a particular hunger to order the Texas benny..." - Jorge

Don't ever order this. Unless you enjoy feeling like complete crap. The infamous Texas Benedict. This is the second (and last) Texas Benny I've ever ordered from the Abbaye.

Homemade biscuits, gravy, bacon, poached eggs, and... fried chicken. Tastes GREAT, but not intended to be eaten by humans.

3 out of 5.
















The Vegetable Benedict...

.. for those of you who think adding spinach and tomatoes somehow transforms the eggs bendict into a healthy meal.

In all seriousness, I dig this benny as much as the regular benny at the Abbaye. Nothing complicated about this one... ditch the bacon, add some veggies.

Not in Philly so technically it's out of the running for the best eggs benny in the city. BUT, it is pretty damn good. Spinach Eggs Benny is pictured. Too much hollandaise sauce!

Eggs benny served on toast!?
That's like serving PB&J on rye...

GTFOOHWTBS!!!!
(get the f out of here with that bullshit)

Regardless of this mortal sin, I am giving the eggs benny at Honey's a 3.5 out of 5, mainly due to the perfect amount of hollandaise sauce, potato latke and friendly service.

The Eggs Benny Files....

...the truth is out there

A young man's quest to find the best eggs benedict in the city of Philadelphia. Some may say it's impossible, some may question my motives, some are just flat out haters and want all the bennys for themselves.
