This article includes results from an additional annual(More)
Raloxifene effectively reduces the incidence of vertebral fractures in patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis. Recent data suggest that low-dose monofluorophosphate (MFP) plus calcium reduces the vertebral fracture rate in postmenopausal women with moderate osteoporosis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the combination of raloxifene and MFP in(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine, in a post-hoc, integrated analysis, the first-dose success, cumulative success by dose, and maintenance of success among men taking tadalafil. Early treatment success is important to men with erectile dysfunction. METHODS In five double-blind, placebo-controlled, 12-week studies, men were randomized to placebo (n = 308), tadalafil(More)
OBJECTIVE Several studies have suggested that use of the short-acting insulin analog, insulin lispro, in multiple injection therapy may reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in comparison with regular insulin. This effect might be more pronounced in well-controlled patients, since intensive treatment of IDDM increases the rate of severe hypoglycemic events. This(More)
Clonidine (300 µg orally) increased in man the total duration of sleep and strikingly reduced the duration of REM sleep. Yohimbine (10 mg per os) did not alter the sleep patterns in man but antagonized the effects of clonidine. These results provide evidence that an α sympathomimetic mechanism could suppress REM sleep and increased the total duration of(More)
INTRODUCTION The DETECT study is a prospective, 12-month, European, multicenter, observational study of patients with erectile dysfunction (ED) initiating or changing treatment to tadalafil in routine clinical practice. AIM To determine the effectiveness of tadalafil and the factors associated with the continuation of treatment for ED at 12 months. (More)
INTRODUCTION Although depression is often associated with poor glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), this observation has been inconsistent. This exploratory, post hoc analysis investigated associations between depression parameters and glycemic control using data from a 24-month, prospective, observational, non-interventional(More)
AIM The aim of this article is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 20-mg tadalafil taken on demand or three times per week and its effect on the sexual activity of patients with diabetes mellitus and erectile dysfunction (ED). METHODS The scheduled use vs. on-demand regimen evaluation (SURE) was a randomized, crossover, open-label study with 4,262(More)
AIM This study evaluated the proportions of prandial (PHG) vs fasting hyperglycaemia (FHG) over 24h in a group of patients with type 2 diabetes (overall and for Caucasian vs Asian patients), and tested the hypothesis that an insulin regimen with a prandial component allows a greater response than basal insulin at low glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) levels with(More)
INTRODUCTION The Erectile Dysfunction Observational Study (EDOS) is a 6-month, pan-European prospective, observational study of health outcomes designed to assess patients' profiles and characteristics and the effectiveness of erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment in routine clinical practice. AIM To present baseline characteristics and treatment-seeking(More)
