TLANDO is a novel twice-a-day oral testosterone replacement therapy product candidate that is designed to help restore normal testosterone levels in hypogonadal men. The safety and efficacy of TLANDO is currently under FDA review. Lipocine expects TLANDO will help fulfill an unmet need in the treatment of hypogonadism. The current testosterone market primarily uses short-acting injectable products as well as topical products that carry an FDA "black box" warning related to inadvertent transfer of testosterone to others. According to the IMS Health database, an average of half a million prescriptions a month have been dispensed in 2016 for TRT.
Lipocine Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company developing innovative pharmaceutical products for use in men's and women's health using its proprietary drug delivery technologies. TLANDO, an oral testosterone replacement therapy product candidate, demonstrated positive efficacy and safety results in Phase 3 testing and has a New Drug Application under review with the FDA. LPCN 1111, a next-generation oral testosterone replacement therapy product with once-daily dosing, is currently in Phase 2 testing. LPCN 1107, which has the potential to become the first oral hydroxyprogesterone caproate product indicated for the prevention of recurrent preterm birth, is currently in Phase 1 testing and has been granted orphan drug designation by the FDA.
