Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Market to Sink to USD 3.4 Billion by 2019: Transparency Market Research


Albany, New York (PRWEB) September 24, 2014

The global erectile dysfunction drugs market was worth $ 4.3 billion in 2012. It is expected to decline at an aggregate rate of 4.5% between 2013 and 2019, which means the market will be valued at $ 3.4 billion in 2019.

All facts and figures have be provided through a research report titled 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, published by Transparency Market Research.

To browse through the research report, or to view the ToC, please visit: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/erectile-dysfunction-drugs.html

The report showed that Viagra (sildenafil citrate) by Pfizer held 45% of the global erectile dysfunction drugs market in 2012. Its majority hold over the market is predicted to decline after patent exclusivity rights expire in 2013 in Europe and other countries. Cialis (tadalafil) held the second-largest market share with $ 1.9 billion in 2012. Its patent exclusivity will reportedly expire in 2017, supplementing the decline of the erectile dysfunction drugs market by 2019. The same is to be expected from Levitra/Staxyn (Vardenafil) by Bayer, whose patent exclusivity is set to expire in 2018. The report explains that once the patents expire, the market will be flooded with competitive generic drugs with similar chemical compositions, reducing the revenue generated by the major players in the market.

Factors that might improve the growth of the erectile dysfunction drugs market are the approval of the new promising drugs Zydena (udenafil) and Stendra/Spedra (avanafil) in mid 2014.

The report categorized the global erectile dysfunction market according to the product brands or pipeline analysis. By products, the report investigates Viagra, Cialis, Levitra/Staxyn, MUSE, Zydena, Mvix, and Helleva. By pipeline analysis, the report identifies Vitaros, Uprima, Gene therapy, Melanocortin Activators, and Topiglan.

For further inquiries, ask here: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/sample/sample.php?flag=S&rep_id=1550

By geography, the research report identifies the regions of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. The North American region dominated the global erectile dysfunction drug market in revenue created. It is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period.

The key players explained in the report are Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Bayer, Dong-A Pharmaceutical Corporation Limited, Eli Lilly And Company, Cristalia Produtos Quimicos Farmaceuticos Ltda., Vivus Incorporated, S.K. Chemicals Corporation Limited, Meda Pharmaceuticals, and Apricus Biosciences, Incorporated.

Erectile dysfunction is a male inability to generate and/or maintain penile erection, for the sake of a fully successful sexual intercourse. It primarily affects men above the age of 40. Typical causes of erectile dysfunction are diabetes and hypertension, along with a host of common habits attributed to a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, excessive consumption of alcohol, smoking, use of recreational drugs, and use of anti-depressants.

A Recently Published Study in JAMA Reveals that Use of Sildenafil (Viagra) may be Tied to Increased Risks of Melanoma, Parker Waichman LLP Comments


Port Washington, New York (PRWEB) September 15, 2014

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm that has long been dedicated to protecting the rights of victims who have been injured by medications reports that a recent study found that use of Viagra (sildenafil citrate), which is also sold under the brand Revatio, is tied to increased risks for melanoma. The study appears in the April 7, 2014 issue of JAMA International Medicine.

The research, a prospective cohort study, was conducted by Wen-Qing Li, PhD, from the Department of Dermatology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, and colleagues. Study participants from the Health Professionals’ Follow-up Study (HPFS) from 2000 and 2010 were involved; 25,848 men were participants, according to JAMA International Medicine. The study followed prior research that revealed that phosphodiesterase (PDE) 5A (PDE5A) inhibitors, which include sildenafil (Viagra), may increase the synthesis of melanin, which may, in turn, increase the development of melanoma. In fact, according to the study, prior published research revealed an association with sildenafil (Viagra) use and other PDE5A inhibitors to increased melanoma cell invasion, especially in people who carry a mutation in the BRAF gene. The current review did not include a review of other PDE5A inhibitors, such as Eli Lillys Cialis (tadalafil) and GlaxoSmithKlines Levitra (vardenafil) because these drugs were not approved when the cohort research was initiated.

HPFS study participants were questioned in a 2000 survey if they had been, or were ever, treated for erectile dysfunction (ED). Of the participants, 13785.3 percentindicated that they had taken sildenafil (Viagra) in the prior three months; 1618or 6.3 percentof the participants reported ever having taken the ED drug. The participants reported diagnoses of melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and basal cell carcinoma (BCC) in the surveys since 1986. In follow-up from 2000 through 2010, researchers discovered 142 cases of melanoma, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer, JAMA indicated. Men who had recently used sildenafil (Viagra) experienced a significantly increased likelihood of being diagnosed with invasive melanoma when compared to non-users and men who had ever used the ED drug experienced an increased risk for melanoma, as well.

Although other PDE5A inhibitors were not studied, the researchers noted in JAMA that, “The observed association between sildenafil use and melanoma might be partly attributed to the later use of vardenafil and tadalafil among recent sildenafil users. A longer clearance time of other PDE5A inhibitors could have augmented the observed HR for sildenafil.” The researchers added that, while the results are not sufficient to change current use recommendations, the data provide epidemiological evidence on possible skin adverse effects of PDE5A inhibitors and support continued investigation of this relationship.”

Ryan Sullivan, M.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston told MedPage Today that, Sildenafil may promote tumor growth, at least in tumor cells and noted that, should a Viagra melanoma cause and effect be confirmed in future research, the effect on melanoma risk will likely apply to all drugs in the PDE5A-inhibitor class, including Cialis and Levitra.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Viagra in 1988 for the treatment of ED in men. Other known Viagra side effects include, heartburn, nausea, and headaches. Men who suffer from angina or very high blood pressure are advised against taking the drug. Since approval, the FDA has issued Press Announcements regarding Viagra and the drugs ties to reports of sudden hearing loss, as well as of non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a type of eye disorder that may lead to permanent vision loss when blood flow is blocked to the optic nerve. Viagra has also long been associated with short-term color changes in vision that cause objects to appear green or blue. The FDA announced labeling changes in 2007 for PDE5A medications to ensure the hearing problem risk was placed more prominently on the labeling following research linking these drugs to sudden hearing loss. In 2005, warnings about vision loss were added to the labels.

Viagra has already been tied to a number of serious adverse health effects, said Gary Falkowitz, Managing Attorney at Parker Waichman LLP. We hope that additional research will lead to more stringent labeling on this class of drugs and that, awareness of these potential reactions will lead to stronger screening and follow-up on patients taking these drugs, Falkowitz added.

[Parker Waichman LLP continues to offer free legal consultations to victims who have suffered adverse health effects after using medications, such as Viagra. If you or a loved one experienced an adverse reaction after taking Viagra or other PDEA5 inhibitors, please contact the firm by visiting yourlawyer.com and the Viagra Melanoma page.

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














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.

4 out of 5



JORGE!...

Classic Diner














Classic Diner - Frazer, PA

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!

Honey's Sit N' Eat














Honeys Sit N' Eat- 4th and Brown

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.
