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.

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).
Marketed products include the PREBOOST® medicated wipe for the prevention of premature ejaculation and the FC2 Female Condom®.
