Studies Find Erectile Dysfunction Commercial Bias Is More Prevalent On TikTok Than YouTube


SAN ANTONIO, May 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Abstracts being presented at the American Urological Association’s Annual Meeting discuss how urologists need to continue to remain relevant on social media to counteract misinformation and commercial bias on erectile dysfunction.

Researchers will present their study findings covering important updates on sexual function in San Antonio, TX, from May 3 to 6. Petar Bajic, MD, urologist and director of men’s health at the Cleveland Clinic, moderated a virtual press session with the abstract authors, providing key insights into their research.

“In this panel, we talk about a new treatment option for erectile dysfunction that’s different than anything we have seen before and how educational content related to sexual function is being distributed through social media and how commercial bias may be influencing the public,” said Dr. Bajic. “We also are going to see how bariatric surgery for obese patients may have an impact on their sex lives.”


The following abstracts are covered in the moderated panel:
