Cialis shown to help with muscle dystrophy

Experts in the US have been looking into whether Cialis, a popular impotence treatment and rival to Viagra, could work effectively to improve blood circulation in those suffering with muscular dystrophy.

Leading the study was Professor Ronald G. Victor who expressed his opinion that his research backed previous studies and found that Cialis contained properties, proven to treat muscular dystrophy in mice.

Wishing to prove that it could prove to be successful for humans, he wanted to determine whether dystrophic sufferers were able to take regular exercise without damaging their muscles.

Trials

During initial tests, men are set to be given equal doses before exercising. A team of doctors will also be at hand to monitor the rate of blood flow in each subject throughout their routines. Male subjects between the ages of 18-55 were selected on the basis of them suffering with Becker muscular dystrophy. An equal amount of non sufferers were also selected for the trials.

The men will undergo stringent testing, based on their ability to grip and their oxygen levels. They were also subjected to magnetic resonance imaging of their muscles.

Professor Victor claims that one of the greatest aspects of the research is the fact the drug is subject to extensive testing and experts were therefore well aware of the side effects if any.

Past findings

This leading impotence treatment and rival to Cialis, Viagra, has had a multitude of uses in the past, including athletic performance at high altitude. AS always, there was no shortage of applicants for the test involving a leading impotence drug like Cialis.
