Mini Review: Pathophysiology of Erectile Dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a major health problem as the population ages. Basic science research for the last two decades has expanded the knowledge on ED and identified several key molecularExpand

Preclinical Evaluation of Intravesical Cisplatin Nanoparticles for Non–Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer
Purpose: Prior clinical trials evaluating cisplatin for non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) were stopped due to local and systemic toxicity. Currently, there is still a need for improvedExpand

Surgical Factors Associated With Male and Female Sexual Dysfunction After Radical Cystectomy: What Do We Know and How Can We Improve Outcomes?
BACKGROUND Sexual dysfunction after radical cystectomy (RC) is a frequent, though commonly overlooked symptom for both men and women. Improved oncological outcomes and the rising number of bladderExpand

Subacute Hemolysis in Sickle Cell Mice Causes Priapism Secondary to NO Imbalance and PDE5 Dysregulation.
INTRODUCTION Recent research suggests that priapism in sickle cell disease (SCD) is due to dysregulation of penile erection homeostasis including alteration of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) andExpand

Radiation-induced erectile dysfunction: Recent advances and future directions
Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men in the United States. A large number of patients undergo radiation therapy (RT) as aExpand

Ex Vivo Model of Human Penile Transplantation and Rejection: Implications for Erectile Tissue Physiology.
BACKGROUND Penile transplantation is a potential treatment option for severe penile tissue loss. Models of human penile rejection are lacking. OBJECTIVE Evaluate effects of rejection andExpand

Tissue-Engineered Urinary Conduits
The role of tissue engineering in the cystectomy population rests on the principle of sparing healthy intestinal tissue while replacing diseased bladder. Over the last 25 years advances in cellExpand

Caspase-3 dependent nitrergic neuronal apoptosis following cavernous nerve injury is mediated via RhoA and ROCK activation in major pelvic ganglion
Axonal injury due to prostatectomy leads to Wallerian degeneration of the cavernous nerve (CN) and erectile dysfunction (ED). Return of potency is dependent on axonal regeneration and reinnervationExpand

Beneficial Effect of the Nitric Oxide Donor Compound 3-(1,3-Dioxoisoindolin-2-yl)Benzyl Nitrate on Dysregulated Phosphodiesterase 5, NADPH Oxidase, and Nitrosative Stress in the Sickle Cell Mouse
Patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) display priapism, and dysregulated nitric oxide (NO) pathway may contribute to this condition. However, current therapies offered for the prevention ofExpand

Intravesical BCG Induces CD4+ T-Cell Expansion in an Immune Competent Model of Bladder Cancer
Intravesical bacillus Calmette–Guéerin (BCG) instillations are standard of care for early stage bladder cancer. BCG was found to recruit T cells to the bladder, but their phenotype was unchanged,Expand
