One Year Follow Up of Cytori Cell Therapy™ in Investigator Erectile Dysfunction Trial

May 10, 2017

Data suggests safety and potential sustained efficacy in post prostatectomy patients  failing pharmacologic intervention

SAN DIEGO, May 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CYTX) announces one year follow up data of  ADRCs (Cytori Cell Therapy™) treatment in post prostatectomy erectile dysfunction. The related abstract and presentation will occur at the 2017 American Urological Association Annual Meeting, May 12-16 in Boston. The abstract is currently available in the Journal of Urology (online).

The investigator initiated, open label, Phase I, single arm pilot trial studied 21 men with post prostatectomy erectile dysfunction with insufficient clinical effect after maximal pharmacologic intervention. The abstract reports that following a single administration of Cytori Cell Therapy™, eight of 14  (57%) of subjects with urinary continence at baseline recovered their erectile function and could implement sexual intercourse after 6 months with the effect sustained to 12 months after treatment. This was associated with a modest but statistically significant sustained improvement in the patient’s IIEF-5 score, a widely used measure of male sexual function. Efficacy was solely demonstrated in patients that were continent at inclusion of the trial. No serious adverse events and 8 minor events related to the liposuction were reported.

This data follows previously published six month follow-up from the same trial on a smaller subset of 17 men with erectile dysfunction following radical prostatectomy (publication available here).

In addition to this study in erectile dysfunction, Cytori Cell TherapyTM is currently being studied in the ADRESU trial in Japan for male urinary incontinence following prostatic surgery.  This investigator initiated, phase III, multicenter, 45 patient trial of Cytori’s ECCI-50 cellular therapeutic is based on promising pilot trial data published in the International Journal of Urology in 2014. Details of the pilot trial can be found on and the Japanese Ministry of Health Labour and Welfare website
