The advent of an effective oral drug, sildenafil, has brought about unprecedented open discussion on male erectile dysfunction, and gas accelerated the pace of development of new therapies for erectile dysfunction. New knowledge in the physiology of sexual function has enabled researchers to target drug treatment at the whole network of the central nervous system and the numerous cascadic enzymatic reactions leading to relaxation of the corporal smooth muscle. One of the brightest potential applications of future molecular technology in the study of erectile dysfuction is in the utilization of gene therapy.
