Apricus Biosciences Announces Poster Presentation Of Vitaros(R) Data In Men Previously Unresponsive To PDE-5 Inhibitors At American Urological Association Annual Meeting

Stocks in this article: APRI

SAN DIEGO, May 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apricus Biosciences, Inc. ("Apricus Bio" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:APRI) ( www.apricusbio.com) announced today that John P. Mulhall, MD, Director of the Male Sexual and Reproductive Medicine Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, will present results from an analysis of existing Phase 3 data for Vitaros®, the Company's lead product candidate for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), at the American Urological Association Annual Meeting which is taking place May 4-8, 2013 in San Diego, CA.

The abstract titled, "Vitaros ® Efficacy and Safety in Viagra ® Non-Responders with Longer Term Use," will be presented as a moderated poster (#1519) during a session titled "Sexual Function/Dysfunction/Andrology: Medical and Non-Surgical Therapy," taking place Tuesday, May 7, 2013 from 8-10 a.m. local time. Dr. Mulhall will give a short oral presentation, which will then be followed by a question and answer period.

This analysis evaluated the safety and efficacy of Vitaros ® after 12 weeks, and longer term use, in men previously unresponsive to phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitors, such as Viagra ® (n=325). Results showed that 200mcg and 300mcg doses of Vitaros® improved erections in this population and adverse events (AE) were mild to moderate, similar to those seen in the control group, and decreased with repeated exposure.

"PDE-5 inhibitors, while effective, address only a portion of the ED patient population. In the current treatment landscape, this leaves a large population of unresponsive or contraindicated patients with few or no alternatives," said Dr. John Mulhall, lead author and Director of the Male Sexual and Reproductive Medicine Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. "Vitaros ® utilizes a novel mechanism of action that has demonstrated successful ED therapy without the side effects associated with current products, making it an effective and practical option for these patients."

Dr. Mulhall is also an Associate Editor for the Journal of Sexual Medicine and past President of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America.
