Viagra potentially keeps your brain functioning as well.😂

Could Viagra Help Prevent Alzheimer's?

researchers found that those taking Viagra were 69% less likely to develop Alzheimer's, when compared to non-users. And lab experiments showed that the medication seemed to target part of the underlying disease process in Alzheimer's.

Dec. 8, 2021 -- The erectile dysfunction medication Viagra could potentially be used as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Aging.

Patients who used the drug sildenafil, the generic name for Viagra, were 69% less likely to develop the disease than nonusers.

“Sildenafil, which has been shown to significantly improve cognition and memory in preclinical models, presented as the best drug candidate,” Feixiong Cheng, PhD, the lead study author in the Cleveland Clinic’s Genomic Medicine Institute, said in a statement.

“Notably, we found that sildenafil use reduced the likelihood of Alzheimer’s in individuals with coronary artery disease, hypertension and type 2 diabetes, all of which are comorbidities significantly associated with risk of the disease, as well as in those without,” he said.

Alzheimer’s, which is the most common form of age-related dementia, affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide. The disease is expected to affect nearly 14 million Americans by 2050. There is no approved treatment for it.

Cheng and colleagues at the Cleveland Clinic used a large gene-mapping network to analyze whether more than 1,600 FDA-approved drugs could work against Alzheimer’s. They gave higher scores to drugs that target both amyloid and tau proteins in the brain, which are two hallmarks of the disease. Sildenafil appeared at the top of the list.

Then the researchers used a database of health insurance claims for more than 7 million people in the U.S. to understand the relationship between sildenafil and Alzheimer’s disease outcomes. They compared sildenafil users to nonusers and found that those who used the drug were 69% less likely to have the neurodegenerative disease, even after 6 years of follow-up.

After that, the research team came up with a lab model that showed the sildenafil increased brain cell growth and targeted tau proteins. The lab model could indicate how the drug influences disease-related brain changes.

But Cheng cautioned against drawing strong conclusions. The study doesn’t demonstrate a causal relationship between sildenafil and Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers will need to conduct clinical trials with a placebo control to see how well the drug works.

from what i understand it happens more than you think . she did him favors the rest of his stay .

Lol - I've heard nurse stories for over thirty years. Lotsa nurses getting porked by docs, techs and nurses hooking up at work, folks stealing drugs and shooting it before shift, all kinds of crazy things. But never that. People are pretty stupid, so I imagine there's a desperate nurse somewhere that's willing to risk her career by climbing up on an unconscious patient and pleasing herself, knowing that an aide or tech could walk in at any time, but I'd be willing to bet it happens rarely. Good story though.

I've work enough medmal cases in the day to believe what you are saying. Though statistically speaking men are more likely to act out this way that women are.

It's like everything people are involved in -- a certain percentage are gonna act in ways the general population is gonna be mortified at. Bad cops?? Yep. Bad nurses?? Yep. Morticians doing the badonkadonk with stiffies (and not talking about little Willy there). They are out there no matter how much those close to them want you to think they are not.

Yep - much more likely a male tech would slip in in an unconscious woman than some female nurse rides the unconscious man. never said it couldn't happen, just that it'd be rare.

And I may be a fool to Bocephus, but that's irrelevant.
