Research questions.

I hadn't noticed this forum, being a reader of the PD forum.

What is the NA treatment that many talk about here?

How many people in here who have DC also have PD?

Have you noticed any family history of DC/PD? Has anyone experienced DC and had it be uniquie (only case) within the family?

Does any one know of any good research sites concerning DC and its relatedness to PD?

Genetic Conditions

The PD condition is unique, although, perhaps, genetically
similar to DD and Lederhose (IMHO.) In all three a connective tissue disorder exists. Epidemiologists can
provide connections between the disorders. For the purpose
of this forum (primarily Dupuytrens, and secondarily
Ledderhose) the collagenase project of Biospecifics sounds
promising in a way that Needle Aponevrotomy does not.
I am not expert in this matter; I am saying that as a
reasonably well-informed Dupuytrens sufferer, the temporary
improvement afforded by NA is not applicable to Peyronnie's
patients. Better information, if any, might exist on the
Biospecifics Peyronnie's website. The French Rheumatologists
at the Lariboisiere site might have significant, if only
speculative, insight into the condition and possible treatment options. Dr. Lermusiaux would be the number one
choice for an inquiry about plausible modalities. That
link is referred to as the "Dr. Badois site" on this forum.
Wish I could offer more. Watch out for charletons offerring
cremes, pumps, herbals, etc. PD is a genetic connective
tissue disorder. Rheumatologists specialize in connective
tissue /immune response disorders. Urologists can diagnose the condition; my limited understanding is that Urologists
have few treatment modalities to offer. Consider going
to a major university Med. Center for a diagnosis and
treatment options. No one has a "magic" cure at present
to the best of my knowledge. Keep searching; the collagenase
trials are "encouraging." That might be a place to focus
attention. Good luck!
