“The anticipated total revenue of the
The Veru prostate cancer pipeline includes zuclomiphene citrate (aka VERU-944, cis-clomiphene) and VERU-111 (bisindole). Zuclomiphene citrate is an estrogen receptor agonist being evaluated in a Phase 2 trial to treat hot flashes, a common side effect caused by hormone treatment for men who have advanced prostate cancer. VERU-111 is an oral, next-generation, first-in-class, antitubulin agent targeting alpha and beta tubulin of microtubules to treat castration and novel androgen blocking agent (abiraterone or enzalutamide) resistant metastatic prostate cancer that Veru expects to enter Phase 1/2 development in late 2018.
Veru is advancing four new drug formulations in our specialty pharmaceutical pipeline addressing unmet medical needs in urology. Tamsulosin DRS granules and XR capsules are formulations of a super selective alpha-1 adrenergic receptor antagonist for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) without a food effect, allowing for potentially safer administration and improved drug compliance (NDA filing expected in 2018). Tadalafil/finasteride combination tablets are for inhibition of both phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) and 5-alpha-reductase to shrink an enlarged prostate, treat symptoms of BPH and treat erectile dysfunction (NDA filing expected in 2019). Solifenacin DRG slow release granules are a formulation of a selective M3 muscarinic receptor antagonist for the treatment of overactive bladder in patients who have difficulty with swallowing tablets (NDA filing expected in 2019).
