Treatment for Painful Curved Penis Shows Promise
Date:5/8/2013

ecent data on the treatment appeared online in February and will be published in the July print issue of the Journal of Urology.

Lipshultz, who was involved in the clinical trials and is paid by Auxilium to speak to physicians about the treatment, said the company thinks Xiaflex will be approved by the FDA by mid-September.

Yet, Kavaler expressed concerns about whether Xiaflex will be helpful.

"The data show it looks like the drug made people feel better about their condition, maybe because they were getting treatment in the clinical trial, but I'm not sure if functionally it made a big difference," she said. "I don't think I could convince somebody to let me inject their penis four to six times with the hope of getting some small improvement."

Side effects from the injection of the drug included: bruising, swelling and pain. There were also three serious adverse events involving penile fracture and three hematomas, according to Auxilium Pharmaceuticals.

But Lee is hopeful.

"I was so far gone with this, the curvature was so bad, and so I feel a whole lot better about myself now," he said. "It's kind of like if a person was paralyzed, and then all of a sudden you can walk, even though you might need assistance, it's a wonderful thing. That's how I'm looking at it."

Lee encouraged people to involve their partners to help them deal with the disease. "If there is a significant other in your life, you guys need to come together with this. For me, that made all the difference."
