Cincinnati, Ohio (June 6, 2017)
M Pharmaceutical Inc. (CSE:MQ, OTCQB: MPHMF, FWB:T3F2 ), (the “Company” or “M Pharma”), is pleased to announce that it has recently received official USPTO “Notice Of Allowance” for the US Trademark of EXTRINSA the Company’s solutionfor Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD).
“We are excited to receive this additional USPTO trademark protection for our FSD product. At this critical stage in the development of Extrinsa, it is prudent and necessary to protect not only our technology, but our shareholder’s investment dollars as well,” said Gary Thompson, President & CEO of M Pharmaceutical Inc.
“Our staff at M Pharma is working closely with Camargo Pharmaceutical Services based in Cincinnati, Ohio to strengthen and expedite the process to bring Extrinsa to market, benefitting millions of women suffering from Female Sexual Dysfunction,” added Mr. Thompson.
Unlike the other two drugs approved by the US FDA to treat FSD, the company’s topical drug product, Extrinsa, would focus on women with orgasm and arousal difficulties. Valeant’s Addyi, recently acquired from Sprout Pharmaceuticals, is indicated only for HSDD (desire disorder) with a number of FDA imposed prescription and marketing restrictions. Intrarosa, by Endoceutics, is indicated for dyspareunia (pain with intercourse) with certain prescribing restrictions. M Pharma’s Extrinsa treatment is topical, local and non-systemic, with daily and on demand use, while being non-hormonal and not a central nervous system drug. Based on these core attributes, the safety profiles of the API and excipients in the drug product, and the dosage and delivery form, the company anticipates Extrinsa to be extremely well-tolerated and highly effective for many women suffering from FSD and has a great likelihood of ultimate approval by the FDA.
