Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Men genitourinary tract is stricken by a heterogeneous group of diseases, including prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, urogenital cancers, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunctions, with distinct pathophysiology, molecular biology, prognosis, and treatment.


Prostatitis is the third most frequent disorder found in the male urinary tract and may be categorized as acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and asymptomatic prostatitis. Benign prostatic hyperplasia is a common condition in aging men, being present in 50% of men at 60 years of age and in 90% of men by 85 years of age. Urogenital cancers include prostate, kidney, urinary bladder, and testicular cancers. Prostate cancer is the second most frequent cancer in men, while kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers comprise approximately 6% of cancers diagnosed in men. Premature ejaculation is a highly prevalent male sexual dysfunction, characterized by ejaculation which always or almost always occurs before or within about one minute of vaginal penetration, with negative personal consequences, like distress and frustration. Despite often neglected it affects 20-30% of men regardless of age and ethnicity. Erectile dysfunction is defined as the failure to achieve or maintain a rigid penile erection suitable for satisfactory sexual intercourse. It is a common condition in men aged over 40 years, with the prevalence increasing steeply with age and other co-morbidities.


Although a lot is already known concerning the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, more should be done to provide more effective therapeutic strategies and increase the quality of life of men stricken by them. Models have greatly contributed to the study of several conditions, and animal models, particularly mice and rats have been critical to elucidate the mechanisms underlying several conditions and test new therapies.


This special issue intends to publish both review and original works concerning the use of models to better understand and treat the male genitourinary tract disorders, looking for renewed biomedical progress in this field.
