Antioxidant Mechanism of Xiaojin Pill () for Treatment of Peyronie's Disease in Rats Based on Matrix Metalloproteinases.

To evaluate the effects of Xiaojin Pill () in the treatment of Peyronie's disease (PD) in a rat model.

Twenty-four male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups with 6 in each: sham operation, PD model, vehicle control and Xiaojin Pill groups.

Impact of Single Dose Photons and Carbon Ions on Perfusion and Vascular Permeability: A Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI Pilot Study in the Anaplastic Rat Prostate Tumor R3327-AT1.

We collected initial quantitative information on the effects of high-dose carbon (12C) ions compared to photons on vascular damage in anaplastic rat prostate tumors, with the goal of elucidating differences in response to high-LET radiation, using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI).

Effect of ostarine (enobosarm/GTX024), a selective androgen receptor modulator, on adipocyte metabolism in Wistar rats.

Synthetic ligands of androgen receptor (AR) are a standard in the treatment of androgen deficiency. One of the effects of androgen deficiency is the disturbance in the homeostasis of lipid metabolism.

Vactosertib, a Novel, Orally Bioavailable Activin Receptor-Like Kinase 5 Inhibitor, Promotes Regression of Fibrotic Plaques in a Rat Model of Peyronie's Disease.

To examine the therapeutic effect of Vactosertib, a small molecule inhibitor of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) type I receptor (activin receptor-like kinase-5, ALK5), in an experimental model of Peyronie's disease (PD) and determining anti-fibrotic mechanisms of Vactosertib in primary fibroblasts derived from human PD plaques.

Sperm recovery and ICSI outcomes in men with non-obstructive azoospermia: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Factor affecting sperm retrieval rate (SRR) or pregnancy rates (PR) after testicular sperm extraction (TESE) in patients with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) have not been systematically evaluated.

Effect of HongJing I in Treating Erectile Function and Regulating RhoA Pathway in a Rat Model of Bilateral Cavernous Nerve Injury.

HongJing I (HJI), a traditional Chinese herbal formula, has been confirmed to be effective for the clinical treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). However, the mechanism of action of HJI remains unclear.

The efficacy and molecular mechanism of the effect of schisandrin b on the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and molecular mechanism of the effect of schisandrin b (SCHB) on treating erectile dysfunction (ED) in a rat model with bilateral cavernous crushing nerve injury.

Extracorporeal Shock Waves Therapy Delivered by Aries Improves Erectile Dysfunction in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats Through Penile Tissue Remodeling and Neovascularization.

Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (Li-ESWT) has been reported to improve erectile function in patients with moderate-to-severe erectile dysfunction (ED) or even convert phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors nonresponders to responders.

Differences between young and aged rats in voiding frequency and detrusor muscle serotonergic contraction.

The involvement of serotonin (5-HT) in increased lower urinary tract symptoms in aging is unclear. We sought to compare voiding function and 5-HT induced detrusor contraction between young and aged rats.

Activities of Calcium-Related Ion Channels during the Formation of Kidney Stones in an Infection-Induced Urolithiasis Rat Model.

Bacterial infection has long been recognized to contribute to struvite urinary stone deposition; however, its contribution to the development of chronic kidney stones has not been extensively investigated.
