TherapeuticsMD Initiates Phase I Study Of Estradiol VagiCap™ For VVA

TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (NYSE MKT: TXMD) announced today that it has initiated a Phase I study of its TX- 12-004-HR estradiol VagiCap™ for vulvar and vaginal atrophy (“VVA”). Already this study has enrolled 44% of the planned 50-patient cohort.

Robert G. Finizio, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We believe this is a promising drug candidate based on our unique VagiCap delivery technology. Last year, estrogen sales for VVA were over $800 million and the category is growing rapidly, making this a particularly attractive opportunity for TherapeuticsMD. We are pleased with the rapid rate of enrollment in this study and look forward to reporting results.”

The Phase I study is designed to show pharmacokinetics levels and measure the effect of TX- 12-004-HR on certain clinical endpoints, including pH levels, vaginal cytology, and vulvar and vaginal pain and itching, which is the most bothersome symptom of VVA.
