About LPCN 1021
LPCN 1021 is a twice-a-day, oral testosterone replacement therapy product candidate with three simple oral dosing options that Lipocine expects will overcome the major shortcomings of existing products. The current testosterone market is dominated by topical products that carry FDA "black box" warnings related to inadvertent transfer of testosterone and by injectable products. The IMS Health database shows that an average of half a million prescriptions a month have been dispensed so far in 2015 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. A New Drug Application was filed with the FDA for Lipocine's lead product candidate, LPCN 1021. LPCN 1021 demonstrated positive efficacy and safety results in Phase 3 testing and is targeted for testosterone replacement therapy. Additional pipeline candidates include LPCN 1111, a next generation oral testosterone replacement therapy product with once daily dosing, that is currently in Phase 2 testing, and LPCN 1107, which has the potential to become the first oral hydroxyprogesterone caproate product indicated for the prevention of recurrent preterm birth with orphan drug designation, is currently in Phase 1 testing.
