  • Bioinformatics-Based Identification of Potential Hypoxia-Related Genes
           Associated With Peyronie’s Disease

    • Authors: Yuanshan Cui, Yajuan Wang, Changping Men, Jitao Wu, Lingling Liu
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      Hypoxia is one of the most important predisposing conditions for Peyronie’s disease (PD) and the pathogenetic mechanism is yet to be completely elucidated. This study applied bioinformatic approaches to select candidate hypoxia-related genes involved in the pathogenesis of PD. The Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) data set GSE146500 was introduced to compare the transcriptional profiling between normal and PD samples. The differential expression of hypoxia-related gene was determined with R software. On the selected candidate genes, further functional analyses were applied, including protein–protein interactions (PPIs), gene correlation, gene ontology (GO), and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway. A total of 66 candidate genes (24 candidates overexpressed in PD and 42 showing reduced expression in PD) were distinguished according to the differential expression between human fibroblast cells from normal and PD patients. The interactions among these candidate genes were recognized according to PPI analysis. The functional enrichment analyses revealed the potential modulatory functions of the candidate genes in some major biological processes, especially in glycolysis/gluconeogenesis and carbon metabolism. The findings would facilitate further study on the pathogenesis of PD, which might consequently promote the improvement of clinical strategies against PD.

  • The Efficacy and Safety of HoLEP for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia With
           Large Volume: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

    • Authors: Fengze Sun, Huibao Yao, Xingjun Bao, Xiaofeng Wang, Di Wang, Dongxu Zhang, Zhongbao Zhou, Jitao Wu
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      This meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of holmium laser enucleation of prostate (HoLEP) in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with large volume. PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases (until March 2022) were used to search related randomized controlled trials. A total of 11 studies including 1,258 patients were involved. HoLEP could significantly decrease the length of hospital stay and accelerate recovery. In subanalysis, HoLEP had better perioperative outcomes than bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate (B-TURP) and bipolar transurethral enucleation of the prostate (BPEP). The improvement in operative time and enucleation time was better in thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) than HoLEP. In the follow-up period, the HoLEP decreased post-void residual urine (PVR) in short-term intervals and improved patients’ maximum flow rate (Qmax) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in mid- and long-term intervals. In subanalysis, HoLEP presented significant improvements in Qmax, PSA, and quality of life (QoL) than B-TURP, and HoLEP could also improve Qmax than ThuLEP after 6 months of surgery. The HoLEP reduced the risk of postoperative bleeding compared with other surgeries in safety. In our study, we confirmed the advantages of HoLEP in treating BPH when the prostate size was larger than 80 mL, which indicated that HoLEP could be the best choice for treatment of large volume of prostate.

  • A Study on the Association Between Family Support and High-Risk Sexual
           Behavior of Elderly Men in Rural China

    • Authors: Yuan Li, Qinxi Liu, Yi Yang, Shuangfeng Fan, Yang Liu, Na Li
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      Our study aimed to understand the relationship between the status of high-risk sexual behaviors of male ≥50 years old (elderly men) and their family support in a rural county-level city in Chengdu. Multi-stage sampling was used to select rural elderly men from six towns to conduct an interview questionnaire survey. Ordinal logistic regression was used to analyze the relationship between high-risk sexual behavior and family factors. A total of 790 samples were included, and the prevalence of high-risk sexual behavior was 16.2%. Two-hundred thirty-nine men (30.3%) had three close family members. More than half of the men (n = 397) had never been provided financial support by family members (50.3%). More than half of men (n = 406) never communicate deeply with family members (51.4%). Logistic analysis reported that 50−59 years old (odds ratio [OR] = 1.928, 95% confidence interval [CI] = [1.070, 3.477]), unmarried, divorced/widowed, married and separated (OR = 8.232, 95% CI = [2.640, 25.673]; OR = 3.589, 95% CI = [1.713, 7.520]; OR = 3.003, 95% CI = [1.238, 7.280]) elderly men were more likely to be involved in commercial sex. Meanwhile, either never or often family financial support (OR = 0.435, 95% CI = [0.228, 0.830]; OR = 0.288, 95% CI = [0.095, 0.876]) helped elderly men to avoid commercial sex. This study predicts family factors may be affected by loneliness, life satisfaction, disposable economic condition, family responsibilities as the middle path, thus affect high-risk sexual behaviors in elderly men.

  • Various Types of Negative Life Events Among Youth Predict Suicidal
           Ideation: A Cross-Sectional Study Based on Gender Perspective

    • Authors: Moye Xin, Julia Petrovic, Lijin Zhang, Bilun Naz Böke, Xueyan Yang, Yuhang Xue
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      We sought to investigate potential gender differences in various types of negative life events and suicidal ideation among Chinese high school and university students, as well as to analyze the interrelations between different types of negative life events and suicidal ideation among these young students. Participants were 2,018 high school and university students from northwestern China, who completed a demographics questionnaire and self-report measures of negative life events and suicidal ideation. Significant gender differences emerged in the types of negative life events reported and in students’ degree of suicidal ideation. Within each gender group, different types of negative life events were predictive of the intensity of suicidal ideation. The present study provides evidence of the role of negative life events in predicting adolescents’ and young adults’ suicidal ideation regardless of their gender. However, gender differences did emerge in the specific type of negative life events that were predictive of suicidal ideation. For males, greater reports of punishment and adaptation had a significant positive impact on the intensity of their suicidal ideation. For females, greater reports of academic stress, personal loss, interpersonal relationships, and adaptation were all significantly and positively predictive of their suicidal ideation. Parents’ marital status emerged as a significant indicator of suicidal ideation across genders, while age was significant negative predictor of suicidal ideation among females only.

  • Patients With Fibromyalgia, Depression, and/or Anxiety and Sex Differences

    • Authors: Marcela Henao-Pérez, Diana Carolina López-Medina, Alejandra Arboleda, Sara Bedoya Monsalve, Julián Andrés Zea
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      Fibromyalgia is a syndrome characterized by chronic widespread pain, with a multifactorial etiopathogenesis and high incidence of neuropsychiatric comorbidity. It has been inaccurately considered a pathological condition affecting only middle-aged women. The study aimed to explore the association of sociodemographic and clinical factors in patients with fibromyalgia with depression and/or anxiety. The present study is an analysis of a cross-sectional study of a secondary source. The prevalence ratio (PR) between the demographic and clinical variables of patients with fibromyalgia and concomitant depression and/or anxiety was calculated. Overall, 1,106 medical records were obtained with a confirmed diagnosis of fibromyalgia between 2010 and 2016; of these, 318 (28.75%) patients had an associated diagnosis of depression and/or anxiety. Approximately 28% women (295 of 1,052) and 42.6% men (23 of 54) suffered from depression and/or anxiety. In the adjusted explanatory model of depression and/or anxiety in patients with fibromyalgia, the relationship between sex (female PR = 0.5 [0.28–0.86]) and low socioeconomic strata (PR = 0.53 [0.33–0.70]) remained constant. In the study population, patients with fibromyalgia belonging to lower social strata were less likely to present with depression and anxiety. The male sex may pose as a risk factor for depression and/or anxiety in patients with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia has a huge impact on men’s physical as well as mental health.

  • Men’s Involvement in Sexual and Reproductive Health Care and Decision
           Making in the Philippines: A Systematic Review of the Literature

    • Authors: Alexa E. Lantiere, Michelle A. Rojas, Cristina Bisson, Elizabeth Fitch, Amanda Woodward, Eleanor L. Stevenson
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      Sexual and reproductive health care (SRH) and family planning (FP) services have been primarily female centered. In recent decades, international groups have advocated for men’s involvement in SRH and FP, yet related research remains limited and implementation not fully realized in many countries. This systematic review of literature seeks to summarize the barriers and facilitators to men’s involvement in SRH/FP services in the Philippines. It is limited to publications in English from 1994 to 2021 regarding studies conducted in the Philippines whose research questions focused on men’s involvement in SRH/FP. Eligible studies were assessed for methodological quality using the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice (JHNEBP) Evidence Rating Scale. The Ecological Model for Health Promotion was used as the guiding theoretical framework for analysis and to report findings. Barriers and facilitators were identified at every ecological level except that of policy. The most common barrier identified was men’s deficit in knowledge about SRH/FP; the most common facilitator was the positive influence of their social network on men’s attitudes, beliefs, and practices pertaining to SRH/FP. A range of factors from the individual to the community level influenced men’s involvement, including religious beliefs, economic means, and cultural gender roles. More studies are needed to provide a fuller understanding of the multilevel ecological factors influencing men’s involvement in SRH/FP and inform interventions with men that can positively affect their behavior related to SRH/FP decision making.

  • Different Factors Are Associated With Sex Hormones and Leydig Cell
           Function in Israelis and Palestinians in Jerusalem

    • Authors: Guy Vishnevsky, Ronit Sinnreich, Hisham Nassar, Dafna Merom, Maya Ish-Shalom, Jeremy D. Kark, Hagai Levine
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      Total testosterone (TT) is known to influence health and virility in men. Among men from United States and Europe, numerous sociodemographic and lifestyle factors were reported to be associated with TT. However, associations with TT and Leydig cell function in the Middle East are poorly described. A cross-sectional, population-based sample had a structured interview, physical examinations, and blood tests in two hospitals in Jerusalem, Israel. A subsample (25- to 44-year-old men, n = 286: 124 Israelis, 162 Palestinians) had sex hormone measurements. The primary outcomes were TT and free testosterone/luteinizing hormone (FT/LH) ratio, representing Leydig cell function. Associations with sociodemographic and lifestyle factors, body mass index (BMI), and physical activity (PA) were evaluated using multivariable linear regression. Compared with Palestinians, Israelis had similar TT (4.81 vs. 5.09 ng/mL, p = .405) and higher FT/LH (31.2 vs. 25.8 ng/IU, p = .002). In ln-transformed values, marital status had a stronger association in Palestinians (P for interaction = 0.03). Age, BMI, and PA had a stronger association with TT in Israelis with significant interactions with ethnicity. BMI

  • Prostatic Abscess Combined With Spleen Abscess Due to Multi-Drug-Resistant
           Gram-Negative Bacilli: A Case Report and Literature Review

    • Authors: Shun Li, Zeqiang Sun, Ning Di, Qingyong Liu, Fei Wu
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      The prostatic abscess is a rare complication of a bacterial infection of the prostate. Since the early use of potent antibiotics to treat urinary tract infections, the incidence of the prostatic abscess has declined significantly. In keeping with that, prostatic abscess combined with abscesses in the spleen or other distant organs become an extremely rare but fatal clinical condition. Here, we present a case of prostate and spleen abscess due to multi-drug-resistant gram-negative bacilli without obvious risk factors. The patient initially complained of high-grade fever and dysuria. After screening the source of infection by computed tomography (CT) scans, prostate and spleen abscesses were diagnosed. In addition, extended-spectrum beta-lactamase positive Escherichia coli was detected both in urine and blood culture. The patient was successfully treated by a transurethral resection of the prostate followed by splenic puncture and drainage, as well as intravenous administration of meropenem. Although the prostate abscess combined with spleen abscess was rare, the possibility of dissemination in remote tissues should be taken into consideration before the surgical treatment of prostatic abscesses. The concurrent drainage of multiple abscesses followed by intensive and sensitive antibiotics was safe and effective for indicated patients.

  • Exploring Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis
           (PEP) Knowledge in Incarcerated Men

    • Authors: Pamela Valera, Zaire S. Ali, Diamond Cunningham, Christopher McLaughlin, Sebastian Acevedo
      Abstract: American Journal of Men's Health, Volume 16, Issue 4, July-August 2022.
      People who are incarcerated have a disproportionately high risk of contracting human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). While there is no known cure for HIV, there are biomedical approaches that can successfully manage the virus and prevent its transmission. A total of 267 men who are incarcerated completed a cross-sectional survey focused on cancer health, HIV prevention, and mental health in three state prisons. The mean age was 39 years. The majority had an annual income of US$10,000 or less, self-identified as heterosexual, not married, had children, did not have any military status, and identified as African American/Black. Less than 4% indicated that they had heard about Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), and only 3% had heard of Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP). PrEP and PEP effectively prevent HIV infection, but little attention has focused on increasing the knowledge and awareness of these HIV prevention interventions in the incarcerated population.
