A Recently Published Study in JAMA Reveals that Use of Sildenafil (Viagra) may be Tied to Increased Risks of Melanoma, Parker Waichman LLP Comments

Port Washington, New York (PRWEB) September 15, 2014

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm that has long been dedicated to protecting the rights of victims who have been injured by medications reports that a recent study found that use of Viagra (sildenafil citrate), which is also sold under the brand Revatio, is tied to increased risks for melanoma. The study appears in the April 7, 2014 issue of JAMA International Medicine.

The research, a prospective cohort study, was conducted by Wen-Qing Li, PhD, from the Department of Dermatology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, and colleagues. Study participants from the Health Professionals’ Follow-up Study (HPFS) from 2000 and 2010 were involved; 25,848 men were participants, according to JAMA International Medicine. The study followed prior research that revealed that phosphodiesterase (PDE) 5A (PDE5A) inhibitors, which include sildenafil (Viagra), may increase the synthesis of melanin, which may, in turn, increase the development of melanoma. In fact, according to the study, prior published research revealed an association with sildenafil (Viagra) use and other PDE5A inhibitors to increased melanoma cell invasion, especially in people who carry a mutation in the BRAF gene. The current review did not include a review of other PDE5A inhibitors, such as Eli Lillys Cialis (tadalafil) and GlaxoSmithKlines Levitra (vardenafil) because these drugs were not approved when the cohort research was initiated.

HPFS study participants were questioned in a 2000 survey if they had been, or were ever, treated for erectile dysfunction (ED). Of the participants, 13785.3 percentindicated that they had taken sildenafil (Viagra) in the prior three months; 1618or 6.3 percentof the participants reported ever having taken the ED drug. The participants reported diagnoses of melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and basal cell carcinoma (BCC) in the surveys since 1986. In follow-up from 2000 through 2010, researchers discovered 142 cases of melanoma, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer, JAMA indicated. Men who had recently used sildenafil (Viagra) experienced a significantly increased likelihood of being diagnosed with invasive melanoma when compared to non-users and men who had ever used the ED drug experienced an increased risk for melanoma, as well.

Although other PDE5A inhibitors were not studied, the researchers noted in JAMA that, “The observed association between sildenafil use and melanoma might be partly attributed to the later use of vardenafil and tadalafil among recent sildenafil users. A longer clearance time of other PDE5A inhibitors could have augmented the observed HR for sildenafil.” The researchers added that, while the results are not sufficient to change current use recommendations, the data provide epidemiological evidence on possible skin adverse effects of PDE5A inhibitors and support continued investigation of this relationship.”

Ryan Sullivan, M.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston told MedPage Today that, Sildenafil may promote tumor growth, at least in tumor cells and noted that, should a Viagra melanoma cause and effect be confirmed in future research, the effect on melanoma risk will likely apply to all drugs in the PDE5A-inhibitor class, including Cialis and Levitra.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Viagra in 1988 for the treatment of ED in men. Other known Viagra side effects include, heartburn, nausea, and headaches. Men who suffer from angina or very high blood pressure are advised against taking the drug. Since approval, the FDA has issued Press Announcements regarding Viagra and the drugs ties to reports of sudden hearing loss, as well as of non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), a type of eye disorder that may lead to permanent vision loss when blood flow is blocked to the optic nerve. Viagra has also long been associated with short-term color changes in vision that cause objects to appear green or blue. The FDA announced labeling changes in 2007 for PDE5A medications to ensure the hearing problem risk was placed more prominently on the labeling following research linking these drugs to sudden hearing loss. In 2005, warnings about vision loss were added to the labels.

Viagra has already been tied to a number of serious adverse health effects, said Gary Falkowitz, Managing Attorney at Parker Waichman LLP. We hope that additional research will lead to more stringent labeling on this class of drugs and that, awareness of these potential reactions will lead to stronger screening and follow-up on patients taking these drugs, Falkowitz added.

Want Glowing Summer Skin? Dermatology Specialist Dr. Joshua Fox with Advanced Dermatology PC Offers Tips on Eating the Best Foods for Healthy Skin

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2014

Summer wardrobes featuring bathing suits, tank tops and shorts also feature a lot of skin. But since we all know by now that a natural glow is far healthier than a suntan, how can we achieve vibrant, fabulous skin from the inside out? It all comes back to the foods we eat, says Joshua Fox, MD, medical director of Advanced Dermatology P.C.

A diet rich in healthy, nutrient-dense foods does more than nourish our insides it shows on the surface, making the difference between sallow, dry skin and an outer fabric thats soft and resilient, according to Dr. Fox, whos board-certified in dermatology.

The Hog Roast Provides The Ultimate Party Centerpiece

Essex, Hertfordshire, London (PRWEB UK) 13 August 2014

With a trend of people looking to dazzle their guests with more and more elaborate party themes and centerpieces The English Hog Roast Company are leading the way in providing party and wedding hog roasts which guests and clients will talk about for years to come.

With the summer wedding and party season now in full swing and with events such as the Commonwealth Games and the World Cup people are thinking of the various ways in which to cater their event. Mike Berry of The English Hog Roast Company says in our opinion there is no better way of providing fresh traceable food to all of your guests which also provides such a huge talking point and centerpiece for your party or wedding.

We provide catering for parties covering Essex, Hertfordshire and London for as small as 30 people and for as many as 500+ people.

The English Hog Roast Company sources all of its pork and lamb locally, which they say, is something really essential as ethically produced food is something that is of great importance to us. All of their pork and food is Farm Assured with schemes such as the red tractor and assured pork.

Mike goes on to say peoples standards are very high compared to say 10 years ago and the bar is always being raised, this something that we have used to drive us to be the best hog roast and catering company. We use only the freshest produce and ingredients available which we believe gives the food that little bit extra and all the guests that eat our food most certainly agree.

Our largest growth area of the business is our corporate catering area which is showing year on year growth. Recent clients have been Raddison Blu Hotels, Tesco, Barrat Homes, BP and many others. We are lucky being very close to London, and with so many big companies looking to amaze their guests with fresh top quality food they are turning to us to provide that for them.

Menus are always being changed and tailored to meet their clients needs. Just last week we were asked to provide a Mediterranean themed lamb roast so we used simple techniques and flavours of slow roasted garlic lamb served in pitta breads with tzatziki, all the guests loved the food and the extra mile we went to provide the best food possible.

If you would like to find out anymore information or if you have an upcoming event please contact Mike Berry on 01279 815660 or 07835 233031 or visit the website
