AIMS: The ultrasound assessment of bladder wall thickness (BWT) and intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) have emerged as a non-invasive, inexpensive, time-saving alternatives to pressure-flow studies to assess benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). Aim of our study was to evaluate the effect on detrusor mass of dutasteride add-on therapy in men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and benign prostatic enlargement (BPE). METHODS: A consecutive series of BPE patients with a prostate volume (PV) ≥30 mL and an international prostate symptoms score (IPSS) ≥8 not satisfied with Tamsulosin monotherapy were enrolled...

A dutasteride 0.5 mg and tamsulosin hydrochloride 0.4 mg combination (DTC) capsule (Duodart(®) ) was reformulated to reduce the capsule size and enhance product stability. Bioequivalence of the reformulated DTC capsule with the commercial formulation was evaluated in 2 single-dose, open-label, randomized, 2-way crossover studies in healthy adult male volunteers. Subjects in a fasted or fed state received a single oral dose of either the reformulated DTC or the commercial formulation followed by a 28-day washout period between treatments...

Combined therapy of benign prostatic syndrome (BPS) with α1-blockers and 5α-reductase (5AR)-inhibitors is recommended according to two leading studies on doxazosin/finasteride and tamsulosin/dutasteride for all 10 in Germany possible combinations (five α1-blockers and two 5AR inhibitors). Because tamsulosin and finasteride predominate in the treatment of BPS in Germany, the role of the combination tamsulosin/finasteride and its scientific basis from clinical studies has been investigated. A pharmacoepidemiological extrapolation from receipts of pharmacy data centres showed a strong increase of the combination tamsulosin/finasteride since 2003...

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common disease in elderly men. BPH symptoms include frequent urination, urgent tenesmus and urination at night, a weak and interrupted urine flow and a sense of incomplete emptying of the bladder. Alpha- 1 adrenergic receptor antagonists and 5 α-reductase inhibitors form the most important groups of medications employed in BPH. Appropriately managed BPH patients shall be subject to counselling on interactions between agents belonging to these groups, and on particular components of the food they have...

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a chronic condition common in older men that can result in bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms. The molecular mechanisms and networks underlying the development and the progression of the disease are still far from being fully understood. BPH results from smooth muscle cell and epithelial cell proliferation, primarily within the transition zone of the prostate. Apoptosis and inflammation play important roles in the control of cell growth and in the maintenance of tissue homeostasis...

Despite their multifactorial etiology, male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) have been traditionally associated with benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) because of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Several pharmaceutical therapies have been used to manage LUTS, with α1-adrenergic receptor antagonists (α1-blockers) and inhibitors of 5α-reductase (5α-RIs) representing the most commonly prescribed agents currently in use for LUTS treatment. Due to their different modes of action, combined use of α1-blockers and 5α-RIs has been proven to offer more optimal control of symptoms and better associated quality of life, even though higher rates of adverse events have been shown...

BACKGROUND: 5α-reductase inhibitors (5α-RIs) (finasteride and dutasteride) have been proven useful in treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) related to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, these inhibitors exert undesirable sexual side effects and, in some cases, these effects are persistent. There is considerable disagreement with regard to whether the adverse side effects resolve with continuous treatment. AIM: To investigate the long-term adverse effects of finasteride treatment in men with BPH on erectile function and to compare these adverse effects in men treated with the α1-adrenergic receptor blocker, tamsolusin...

CONTEXT: 5α-Reductase (5αR) types 1 and 2 catalyze the A-ring reduction of steroids, including androgens and glucocorticoids. 5α-R inhibitors lower dihydrotestosterone in benign prostatic hyperplasia; finasteride inhibits 5αR2, and dutasteride inhibits both 5αR2 and 5αR1. In rodents, loss of 5αR1 promotes fatty liver. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to test the hypothesis that inhibition of 5αR1 causes metabolic dysfunction in humans. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: This double-blind randomized controlled parallel group study at a clinical research facility included 46 men (20-85 years) studied before and after intervention...
