Leading Urologist Doubles Down on CaverStem® Regenerative Stem Cell Procedure for Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction in Men
PHOENIX, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative Medical Technology Holdings, Inc. (OTC: CELZ), a leading commercial stage biotechnology company focused on a regenerative approach to Urology, Neurology and Orthopedics, today announced that it will be partnering with Dr. Naveen Kella (MD) exclusively in the Austin, TX region to provide CaverStem® to patients suffering from Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
This announcement comes on the heels of a successful launch in San Antonio where Dr. Naveen Kella negotiated his initial exclusive. "I was looking for an alternative for my patients suffering from ED that were not getting results from the traditional therapies, said Dr. Kella. "After I read the publication results of CaverStem® in Journal of Translational Medicine, I knew this would be a promising option for my patients. After having treated several dozen patients, I can now confidently say our expertise with Caverstem® is a great asset for my practice in San Antonio, TX and I am excited to offer it to patients in the Austin, TX region starting immediately."
The results seen in Dr. Kella's practice are consistent with those seen in the initial trial and post-market surveillance. Patients are seeing drastic improvement in their erections (both the ability to get erect and stay erect) with no adverse results reported.
"We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Dr. Kella into the Austin, TX region", said Timothy Warbington, President and CEO of Creative Medical Technology Holdings Inc. "It's always a nice validation to have one of our existing providers see such positive results that they want to increase their partnership. Despite the strong headwinds we faced due to COVID locking up the health system, we are encouraged by the success stories that continue to pour in from healthcare providers and patients from around the country. We expect to expand our footprint rapidly in 2021 with several doctors in holding pattern waiting for vaccine before expanding their practices."

About Erectile Dysfunction:
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is characterized by the lack of ability to achieve and maintain penile erection for intercourse. Methods used to quantify ED include the Erectile Function Visual Analog Scale (EF-VAS) and the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5), however clinically it is primarily diagnosed based on symptomology. In our aging society, ED is becoming an increasing problem. According to one study 39% of men at age 40 experience symptoms of ED, whereas by age 70 the incidence rises to 67%. In this latter age group, it is believed that 50-85% of ED cases are associated with hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and dyslipidemia. Overall, it is estimated that 10-30 million Americans suffer from this condition.
