INJECTION THERAPY FOR PEYRONIE’S DISEASE
Collagenase clostridium histolyticum is a medication which is used to treat certain conditions that are caused by a certain protein (collagen) in your body.
It treats a condition called Peyronie’s disease in adult men. This condition causes scar tissue or “plaque” to develop under the skin of the penis, resulting in an abnormal curving of the penis during erection.
Collagen is a tough and strong substance and is found in the plaques in the penis in Peyronie’s disease. Collagenase is a substance (enzyme) that breaks down the collagen in these plaques.
