New Studies Show No Link Between Testosterone Therapy and Heart Problems

Apr 08, 2015

As this controversy continues, four studies have added to the body of research showing no association.

Two were presented at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society held in San Diego last month.

The first was conducted by researchers from Eli Lilly, a pharmaceutical company, who wanted to know whether there was a link between testosterone and blood clots. The team collected data from over 200,000 men. Roughly half were treated with testosterone. The other half had low testosterone, but did not undergo therapy. In their analysis, the researchers found no connection to blood clots.

In the second study, scientists from GlaxoSmithKline, also a pharmaceutical company, investigated their product, darapladib, and heart risks. They found no increase in risk for men with coronary heart disease.
