TherapeuticsMD Receives Notice Of Allowance For Patent Covering Platform Technology Of Oral Combination Bioidentical 17β-Estradiol And Progesterone

TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (NYSE MKT:TXMD), a women’s healthcare company ("TherapeuticsMD" or the "Company"), announced today that it received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office pertaining to its U.S. Patent Application 13/684,002 - "Natural Combination Hormone Replacement Formulations and Therapies." This Patent Application covers the Company’s platform technology TX 12-001-HR, its oral bioidentical 17β-estradiol and progesterone combination drug candidate.

"Receiving this patent allowance is a critical step towards solidifying our IP protection for this important technology, and specifically in relation to our lead product candidate, TX 12-001-HR," said Robert Finizio, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of TherapeuticsMD. "Until now, it has been exceptionally difficult to combine these two bioidentical hormones and achieve consistent bioavailability. Based on clinical data presented earlier this year, we believe TX 12-001-HR has overcome these hurdles and that this novel combination of 17ß- estradiol and progesterone may achieve equivalent efficacy with better bioavailability as compared to current hormone therapies. We eagerly await the outcomes of the ongoing REPLENISH Trial."
