Testosterone replacement not linked to blood clots

Testosterone replacement not linked to blood clotsJuly 27 2015. An article published on July 20, 2015 in Mayo Clinic Proceedings revealed the outcome of a study conducted by researchers at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston which failed to uncover an increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE, or blood clots in the veins) among men using testosterone replacement therapy. The finding counters the conclusions of other researchers of an association between testosterone and increased cardiovascular disease risk.

“In 2014, the Federal Drug Administration required manufacturers to add a warning about potential risks of VTE to the label of all approved testosterone products,” stated lead author Jacques Baillargeon, of the Mayo Clinic's department of preventive medicine and community health. “The warning, however, is based primarily on post-marketing drug surveillance and case reports. To date, there have been no published comparative, large-scale studies examining the association of testosterone therapy and the risk of VTE.”
