OBJECTIVE To describe the relationship between the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of dapoxetine, a drug specifically developed for treating premature ejaculation (PE). METHODS Data from various stages of the clinical development programme were analysed using validated methods for assessing ejaculatory latency. The clinical characteristics(More)
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is becoming an increasingly common problem and although oral therapies offer first-line treatment for many men, they are contraindicated or ineffective in substantial groups of patients.

Of particular interest is the correlation between ejaculatory latency and penile sensory thresholds. Men with PE appear to have a heightened sensory response to(More)
At low concentrations, 3H-naloxone apparently bound to two sites, of high (KD 0.50 nM) and low (KD 2.0 nM) affinity. Binding to the high affinity site was preferentially blocked by naloxonazine. This is consistent with the high and low affinity sites representing the mu 1 and mu 2 sites respectively. Binding of 3H-naloxone to the mu 1 and mu 2 sites was(More)
Recommendations regarding the use of plant-derived medications for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) state that every brand should be fully evaluated and considered separately.

1. In normal rats and rats with bladder hypertrophy secondary to outflow obstruction, undergoing continuous cytometry, we examined the responses to the selective alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonist doxazosin given intrathecally (i.t.) and intra-arterially (i.a.). In addition, we investigated the effects of the drug on L-dopa-induced bladder hyperactivity in(More)
