SAN DIEGO, Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Daré Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ:DARE), a clinical-stage, women’s biopharmaceutical company, today announced it has entered into an agreement to license SST-6007 (5% Topical Sildenafil Citrate Cream), a potential treatment for Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (“FSAD”), from Strategic Science & Technologies, LLC (“SST”). FSAD is characterized primarily by an inability to attain or maintain sufficient physical sexual arousal that causes distress or interpersonal difficulty. SST-6007 incorporates sildenafil, the same active ingredient in Viagra®, in a proprietary cream formulation that is specifically designed to locally increase blood flow to the vulvar-vaginal tissue in women, leading to a potential improvement in genital arousal response and overall sexual experience. If approved, Daré believes SST-6007 would be the first FDA approved treatment for FSAD.

SST-6007 is the second product in Daré’s growing portfolio of novel therapeutic candidates that address unmet needs in women’s reproductive and sexual health. Daré’s first product candidate undergoing clinical development in the United States is Ovaprene™, a non-hormonal contraceptive ring with the potential to be the first non-hormonal product to provide monthly contraceptive protection.

“We look forward to working closely with SST to bring SST-6007 to the market for women, leveraging SST’s deep knowledge of FSAD and our experience developing innovative women’s health products and readying them for U.S. commercialization. Driven by a mission to identify unmet needs in women’s health and mining the globe for unique assets that would serve these needs, we are confident that SST-6007 has the potential to significantly impact women with Female Sexual Arousal Disorder, an area that has long been studied but for which there are currently no FDA approved treatments,” said Sabrina Martucci Johnson, President and CEO, Daré Bioscience.

“While increased attention has been focused on female sexual dysfunctions over the past several years, no pharmacologic options have yet been FDA approved for Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD), a condition which significantly compromises a woman’s ability to have a pleasurable sexual experience,” commented Dr. Sheryl Kingsberg, Division Chief, OB/GYN Behavioral Medicine, UH Cleveland Medical Center. “I am very excited about the potential for Topical Sildenafil to address this critical unmet need in women’s sexual health. Leveraging the known therapeutic benefit of Viagra® to stimulate increased blood flow to the genital tissue, Topical Sildenafil may offer these women a safe, effective and ‘on demand’ solution to difficulties with sexual arousal allowing for a more intense and enjoyable sexual experience.”

In a Phase 2 study, SST-6007 demonstrated an increase in blood flow to the vaginal tissue in both pre- and postmenopausal women with FSAD. Daré plans to pursue the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway for SST-6007 in the U.S. and leverage the existing data and established safety profile of the Viagra® brand. Daré anticipates commencing a Phase 2b clinical trial in the second half of 2018.

With the potential introduction of SST-6007 as the first FDA approved product for FSAD, Daré is poised to create a new market category within the female sexual dysfunction space. A report by Visiongain forecasts that the world market for both male and female sexual dysfunction drugs will reach $7.7 billion in 2019.
