NEXMED LICENSES FEMPROX TO CJ CORP. FOR SOUTH KOREA.
Hong-Chang Kim, president of CJ Pharmaceuticals headquartered in Seoul, said, "We're delighted to collaborate with NexMed, whom we consider to be a pioneer in the development of effective transdermal treatments for sexual dysfunction. Femprox(r) has tremendous potential and we look forward to developing this innovative product in our country."
Dr. Joseph Mo, NexMed's CEO said, "We're pleased that CJ Corporation has committed to undertaking the development and commercialization of Femprox in South Korea. We look forward to working with CJ in Korea and we are continuing to consider potential licensing partners for Femprox in other parts of the world."
Femprox(r) incorporates NexMed's NexACT transdermal penetration enhancing technology with the vasodilator, alprostadil. Results from NexMed's first Phase 2 study of Femprox(r) were published in the October-December 2003 issue of Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy (Volume 29, Number 5), one of the leading peer- reviewed specialty medical journals. The "at-home" study was conducted at multiple research sites in the U.S to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Femprox(r) cream in 94 pre-menopausal women diagnosed with FSAD. The trial results demonstrated positive dose-related trends, and the side effects noted were mostly mild in nature and short in duration. A copy of the article can be obtained from NexMed.
