LONDON, December 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Prolong TM a revolutionary new treatment for premature ejaculation (PE), was peer reviewed and presented today at the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM) annual conference in Amsterdam where it was recommended as first line treatment for premature ejaculation.
During independent clinical trials in two London Teaching Hospitals the Prolong TM training programme was shown to be three times more effective and worked in 50% more men than psychosexual therapy, (the then current gold standard treatment), and is at least four to five times cheaper. The Prolong TM programme was not associated with any side effects during trials.
Men with premature or early ejaculation were found to be more sensitive to penile stimulation than those without. Dr Andy Zamar, the creator of Prolong TM explained to delegates how Prolong TM works by repeated subthreshold stimulation of the most sensitive parts of the penis producing a long term reduction of this sensitivity. This effect is called habituation and is thought to be permanent.
Men who used the Prolong TM prototype with the programme in the clinical trials improved by week one and reached maximal improvement by week six. The Prolong TM programme trained men to last on average 11 times longer during intercourse by learning to control their climax. The 11 fold improvement was maintained when they were reviewed three months after they completed the programme. The Prolong TM programme was associated with increased interest, initiative, frequency and satisfaction in intercourse.
Dr Zamar explains: "I wanted to design a programme to treat premature ejaculation which would see men train on their own, and then carry this into having intercourse without the need for or use of any other treatments such as anaesthetics or pills".
At the conference, Dr Zamar reviewed a large study conducted in three countries (USA, Italy and Germany) of 12,133 men aged 18-70 which found that premature ejaculation afflicts 22.7% of men across all ethnic and age groups. Alarmingly the study found that 42% of men afflicted use alcohol and 16% use drugs, such as amphetamines, cocaine and heroin or opiates to address the condition. Only 9% went to doctors to seek help and of those 91.5% reported little or no improvement after seeking treatment. This study has shown that effectively, less than 1% benefit from existing treatments and the great majority of afflicted men use drugs and alcohol to address the condition risking major health, social, professional and relationship damage.
Continuing, Dr Zamar said: "The fact that men can purchase Prolong TM discreetly and train on their own, and the very large effect size compared to any other clinically trialled treatment for premature ejaculation, as well as the long term sustained benefits, means that Prolong TM should be used by any man as a first line if they wish to gain better control over climax."
The relatively low cost of the programme compared to other available treatments (200 Euros for the six week training programme compared to 1000-3000 Euros for psychosexual therapy, 26.50 Euros per pill for Dapoxetine (Priligy) every time men have intercourse and local anaesthetics which have to be used for life), offers an additional advantage to Prolong TM being recommended as a first line treatment for premature or early ejaculation.
Prolong TM was made available for sale in Europe at http://www.aboutpe.com after the European regulatory authorities reviewed the clinical data as well as the safety profile and manufacturing standards and licensed Prolong TM for Climax control training in the 30 countries of the EEA as a non prescription item. Applications to the FDA and Canadian Medical Device Licence for approval in the USA and Canada are underway.
