Senetek PLC Receives Approval to Market INVICORP(TM), Its Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Therapy, in Denmark

NAPA, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Senetek PLC (Nasdaq: SNTKY) announced today that it has received approval from the Danish Medicines Agency (DMA) to market INVICORP(TM) in Denmark. INVICORP(TM) is Senetek's combination therapy, administered via the Company's proprietary state-of-the- art autoinjector, for treating moderate to severe erectile dysfunction.

"This is the first of many regulatory approvals we are anticipating this year," said Anthony J. Cataldo, chairman and chief executive officer of Senetek. "Because of the continuous clinical data being reported about INVICORP, which show significant efficacy and minimal side effects, coupled with extremely low placebo results, we believe that INVICORP's market segment will represent a substantial percentage of the potential total worldwide market for ED therapies."

INVICORP(TM), an autoinjectable formulation ofvasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), in combination with the adrenergic drug phentolamine mesylate (PMS) and sexual stimulation, provides an effective therapy for ED patients that is essentially free of troublesome side effects and cumbersome delivery methods.

Senetek PLC is a science-driven biotechnology company providing solutions to aging-related healthcare problems.
