Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Tom F. Lue, MD, ScD (Hon), FACS
Dr. Lue's current basic science research projects involve the development of animal models for research in erectile dysfunction due to hormone deficiency, cavernous nerve injury, diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia. Regarding Peyronie’s disease, he is currently testing the hypothesis that prolonged inflammation/autoimmune reaction is involved in the pathogenesis of Peyronie’s disease. His lab also has 10 years of experience in basic cell biology research of mesenchymal stem cells [MSC]. His lab is one of the first to show evidence that MSCs are vascular stem cells existing in various tissues and paracrine effect may be involved in the action of implanted MSC in addition to cellular differentiation. Using animal models, Dr. Lue also is exploring the feasibility of using adipose tissue derived adult stem cells as a source of stem cells for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence, neurogenic impotence and functional recovery after spinal cord injury. The application of MSC in erectile dysfunction is scheduled for clinical trial soon.
Besides being listed in The Best Doctors in America and America’s Top Doctors for many years, he was named one of the 8 top doctors for men by Men’s Health Magazine in 2003. He has published more than 360 peer reviewed articles and more than 100 book chapters.
