Key conclusions from the presentations:
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc. ® (Nasdaq:RPRX) today announced that the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) has accepted key data on Androxal® for presentation at the annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, November 21 – 24, 2013. The data presented are from subset analyses of the double-blind, placebo and active control Phase 2 and 3 studies.
One presentation describes the basic clinical profile of Androxal. Androxal acts at the level of the pituitary as a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) to block the negative feedback of estrogen on the pituitary hormones, LH and FSH. Restoration of LH (secondary hypogonadal males have low levels) is shown to provide rapid and effective normalization of T levels without excursion outside the normal range. This profile is in contrast to the topical agents used in the protocol.
In addition, the second presentation demonstrates that preservation of FSH levels in Androxal treated patients ensures that there is no negative impact on sperm function. Once again, this is in contrast to the topical gels which have deleterious effects on spermatogenesis. Overall, this study shows that Androxal may provide effective therapy in men with secondary hypogonadism, particularly in those wishing to preserve fertility.
The final presentation examines the impact of Androxal on bone mineral deposition. Although it could be predicted due to its action as a SERM that Androxal would have an adverse effect on bone mineral deposition, this study shows that Androxal may actually have a beneficial effect.
Dr. Wayne Hellstrom, Professor of Urology and Chief of Andrology, Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, stated, "Selection of all three analyses for presentation at the premier sexual health meeting in the US, shows the increasing interest that the urological community has in the management of hypogonadism. The data presented not only highlight the potential utility of Androxal but also the limitations of existing therapy."
