The FDA has recently approved bremelanotide as an effective drug to treat sexual dysfunctions. It is both useful for men as well as women. Bremelanotide is also known as PT-141; it is a peptide hormone that activates melanocortin receptors. The receptors, also known as MC-4R, induce sexual arousal in the central nervous system. That’s why this peptide is effective in treating sexual dysfunctions.
The drug must be admitted 45 minutes before the sexual intercourse. However, the effects of the medicines last until three days, diminishing each day. Earlier, Melanotan II was used as the drug, but it had many side effects. But tanning Melanotan II produced this PT-141, which is effective.
It can treat impotence / erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation in men. And it can induce sexual desire in women. More than 40% of women do not enjoy sexual intercourse and don’t desire to have sex.
PT-141 is often known as the viagra for women as it increases the sexual desire in women and helps them enjoy sexual intercourse. The research done by the FDA and a drug manufacturer found that women found more sexual fulfillment after using PT-141 than after using a placebo. The pt 141 reviews all over the web are also hinting towards its success.
Other than being used as a drug for sexual dysfunctions, the drug is also used for brain hemorrhages, fungal infections, and cancer. The MC-1R and MC-4R are combined and form a modified version of PT 141. It reduces ischemia and protects tissues against inadequate blood supply in the setting of hypovolemia, and prevents hemorrhage.
PT-141 also has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it an effective treatment for fungal infections. The drug has DNA repair properties, which can make it a possible cancer drug in the future.
