United States Food and Drug Administration Accepts Trimel's NDA for CompleoTRT(TM)

08:00 EDT Tuesday, July 09, 2013

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 9, 2013) - Trimel Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX:TRL) today announced that the New Drug Application ("NDA") for its bioadhesive intranasal gel testosterone product ("CompleoTRT™") has been formally accepted for review by the United States Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA"). The NDA is supported by efficacy and safety results from 306 patients who participated in the pivotal Phase III study.

Additionally, the FDA has confirmed that under the United States Prescription Drug User Fee Act, the NDA will be subject to a standard review and the target action date for the NDA is February 28, 2014.

About CompleoTRT™

Trimel's most advanced product candidate, CompleoTRT™, is a bioadhesive intranasal gel formulation of testosterone. CompleoTRT™ is designed with a view to providing hypogonadal patients with superior safety and enhanced convenience over currently available treatment options.

Subject to FDA approval, CompleoTRT™ is designed to be applied to the interior lateral wall of the nasal cavity, where internal studies have demonstrated that the gel is fully absorbed into the nasal mucosa within 15-30 minutes. There is virtually no smell or taste associated with the gel. It is expected that, as a result of the "no touch" targeted delivery to the nasal mucosa, CompleoTRT™ should avoid skin-to-skin transference to spouses or other family members, a health risk that led the FDA to issue a "black-box" warning in May 2009 for secondary transference for all topical testosterone gel preparations.

An NDA for CompleoTRT™, a product utilizing Trimel's licensed bioadhesive intranasal gel technology, has been accepted for review by the FDA for regulatory approval in the United States.
