I wouldn't agree with this. Its not so easy to just think something and it turn into reality. If such a thing was possible then why is it that the people who still suffer with sexual sides can't just think about having no sexual sides and they get healed? Doesn't work that way.

I know most people who started on anti-androgens were positive minded and ended up with being completely caught blindsided with sexual sides.
Some people do get physiological side effects from AAs. Actually pretty much everyone does at very high doses used for cancer treatment. Most people do not get it from Propecia. Of those that do, many are because they are simply getting older and just begin to notice it or they are under a lot of stress due to their hair loss, or they are so anxious about getting side effects, because of the fear-mongering, that they think themselves into being unable to perform. Sexual function is largely psychological. Then of course there are those rare individuals who are more sensitive to the hormonal changes and have real physiological ED. If you don't believe ED can be psycholigical, just look at the growing number of teenagers suffering from ED due to p**rn. There's nothing physically wrong with them, they have just trained their minds to only respond to hardcore pornography.

There is a reason that every finasteride trial has almost identical (but slightly lower) numbers of placebo instances of ED as the actual trial arm does. It has nothing to do with "positive mindsets" or magically thinking away side effects, that's not what placebo is. It's the human brain thinking something is happening on such a deep level that it's beyond the power of manual thought.

People would just rather blame the evil pharma companies for lying to them rather then admit that it's a more complicated issue then most people can understand. Doesn't change that some people get seriously fucked up from finasteride, it's just a smaller amount from the actual body chemistry.

I could genuinely go on about this with you guys for pages because I strongly disagree that the majority of those people who get sexual sides from AA's are from thoughts (even Pegasus said only up to a quarter of clinical ED is psychologically induced), but let's stop the discussion here on that before we turn this thread into another one of those derailed-topic threads.

You have no idea what you are talking about. The finasteride trials and not designed to actually find occurrence of sexual sides. If they were you'd see them measure how quickly it takes to achieve maximal erection with normal stimuli and how long the male is able to maintain erection without any stimulus. THAT would be scientific. Not asking the participants of the study if they experienced any sexual sides in a self report questionnaire.

The fact that most men don't notice they are losing hair until they've lost 40% density just shows that the majority of men are terrible at spotting subtle changes in their body.

If they actually measured sexual performance in a scientific manner then the occurrence of sexual side effects would be almost 100%

Right, I have no idea what I'm talking about because you personally think the merck researchers should have been in there measuring dicks. The definition of erectile disfunction is the inability to get or maintain an erection, so why would the researchers be doing some dick measuring and watching hard-ons with a stop watch instead of just asking for the most obvious markers which would be self reported instances of sexual dysfunction.

"Scientific manner" :p you're a joke bud. Find me a general study (ie not viagara or an erection drug) on the planet that is measuring dicks to determine sexual impairment. Better yet, find me a "side" outside of blood pressure or a blood metric that is determined without self reporting in a clinical trial.

you obviouwly know not much about sexual health to underatand this. they use a founded solid questionary to diagnose ED, the side is ED not "takes 2 seconds longer to get erect", it is all about how the patient perceives it and i think patients often actually overestimate any change if at all.

this is the same questionairy that is used to measure the effectiveness of pde5 inhibitors or to measure the effect of certain surgeries like prostate resection or impact and treatment of peyronies disease. this questionary called the IIEF is used in those studies, the questions are so precise that if there is no change in IIEF scores i would say if there is any chance like you suggest it just does not matter. because this is validated for many other diseases and first of all to actually capture what it wants to capture(think about penile surgery its very important to understand erectiob capabilities after various invasive penis surgeries)


if someone can not stay erect anymore without stimukation it WILL be captured in those tests. what are you on about? of course this will be noticeable to koat men, you think people are living under rocks? tgats exactly why you have a placebo group. do you think only in the finasteride group people just do not noticr certwin differences?

you have probavly never designed a study yoursekf as talking on the internet is always easier

How do you come to this conclusion?
he made it up. sure there is issues with the IIEF vut it is not used jist in those trials, it is used everywhere when you want to getbinfo about sexual function be it penile surgery or how well cialis works its akways the same test

you are correct and he is a pseduo researcher on a trip, all studies btw even those on cialie, v****, penile surgery(peyronies surgery etc) use the IIEF scale. sure that coukd be better but it is scientific enoigh for the most erection based resewech out there, this hws nothinf to do with finasteride trials. if over a large sample group you have no change in the IIEF you can assume it causes no ED thats how statistics works. the stop watch comment is comical, for me my ED on finasteride if it was just a stop watch thing itd be fine, if i do the IIEF there is a clead drop in pointw, very obvious if you actually look at the test which he has never done probabbly

Do you think this will be enough to halt the loss or we will still need finasteride?

Kintor is really comitted to KX-826
Lets hope they start phase 2 in USA ASAP

Also it would be awesome if they disclose GT20029 phase 1 results this quarter. We really need a drug like that.

Source? It can only induce things that can be psychological. If stress is a factor then placebo can help. Stress does not cause Androgenetic Alopecia. No placebo can reverse a genetic disease.
I did some quick googling and it seems you may be right.

Google says placebo can alter heart rate and blood pressure, but those can be controlled by changes in psychological state.

There is this article which has things like this:

McKenzie (1896) reported an interesting ob-
servation relevant to the understanding of the
placebo effect in the immune system. In this
study, it was shown that some people who are
allergic to flowers show an allergic reaction
when presented with something that super-
ficially looks like a flower, but contains no
pollen (i.e., an artificial flower).


But the presumed mechanism there is classic Pavlovian conditioning, not placebo.

I did a bit of reading on placebo some years ago and I could have sworn I'd read about actual physical effects, but perhaps I misremembered, my bad.
