BREAKING COVID-19 News! Turkish Study Finds SARS-CoV-2 Virus In Penile Tissues Of Men Who Recovered From COVID-19! Implications For Erectile Dysfunction!
COVID-19 News - SARS-CoV-2 Found In Penis Tissues  Dec 10, 2022  9 months, 3 weeks, 2 days, 6 hours, 8 minutes ago
COVID-19 News: A study by researchers from Istanbul University, Turkey has found evidence of SARS-CoV-2 virus in penile tissues of men who recovered from COVID-19 up to one month!

The SARS-Cov-2 virus was found in the corpus cavernosum region of the penis which is the  "cave-like body" of the penis and is one of a pair of sponge-like regions of erectile tissue, which contain most of the blood in the penis during an erection.
The study findings have implications for erectile dysfunction issues in Post-COVID men!
Many past studies covered in various COVID-19 News coverages have already showed that COVID-19 is causing erectile dysfunction issues in many men.
In fact, Thailand Medical News was the first to warn that SARS-CoV-2 could c ause infertility in men as early as February 2020! Our coverage was met then by criticisms and also labelled as fake news by bastard journalists from Italy and garbage fact checkers from the United States employed by Facebook, who hopefully have perished in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic along with their families!!-latest-research-published-by-chinese-scientists-say-coronavirus-might-render-certain-male-patients-infertile
A previous study by researchers from the University of Miami Miller Scholl of Medicine, Florida-USA had found evidence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus remaining within the endothelial cells of penile tissue as much as seven months after infection, which suggests that direct damage to cavernosal endothelium may affect erectile function.
According to the Turkish study team, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic caused urological procedures to be postponed when patient is infected with SARS-CoV-2. However, the reliability of 1 month postpone period and long-term complications of the virus, such as a possible erectile dysfunction (ED) is not clarified.
The study team aimed to compare the corpus cavernosum of patients 1 and 7 months after COVID-19 infection with control patients who had not COVID-19 and search for SARS-CoV-2 in tissues using immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy.
For the study, three groups of subjects underwent penile prosthesis implantation and Nesbit procedure for Peyronie's disease 1 and 7 months after COVID-19 infection and control group without previous COVID-19 infection.
The study team searched for SARS-CoV-2 in penile tissue using RT-PCR, electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry.
Shockingly, electron microscopy and immunohistochemical staining showed SARS CoV-2 virus in the penile corpus cavernosum of patients 1 month after COVID-19 recovery.
While immunohistochemical staining intensity correlated with the severity of previous infection, transmission electron microscopy revealed intracellular virtual particles of about 80 nm with a typical morphology of prominent spikes and electron-dense dots of nucleocapsid in addition to vesicles filled with virus-like particles. Cells showed increased membrane trafficking.
Interestingly, the 1 month after COVID-19 group showed an increased number of fibroblasts. The 7 months after COVID-19 group had similar morphology and immunoreactivity as control group.
To date, this is the first study of late post-COVID examination of penis and the second study of early post-COVID examination of corpus cavernosum.
For 1-month post-COVID patients, the aetiology of Erectile Dysfunction or ED could be the viral infection that is also affecting corpora cavernosa.
The study team hypothesizes that viral infection affects the endocytic and exocytic pathways, hence the metabolic activity of cells that can be the reason of altered functions in some post-COVID patients.
The study findings were published in the peer reviewed journal: Andrology
A past study involving more than 230,000 males had showed that up to 20 percent of men exhibit erectile dysfunction issues after contracting the SARS-CoV-2 virus!
Another study involving the meta-analysis of more than 60 published peer reviewed studies concluded that Erectile Dysfunction affects a large proportion of male population who have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
SARS-CoV-2 viral persistence is also another major issue that has not yet been addressed by the medical and research community yet.
Studies have showed that male testis and sex organs could be viral reservoirs for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Studies have also showed that presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the semen of men!
Females and gay men planning to have unprotected sex with Post COVID males or worse unprotected oral sex should think twice as not only are they at a risk of getting infected but they might also end up with throat cancers, cervix cancers and anal cancers, similarly to what HPV virus does.
