TesoRx adds a novel new bladder cancer therapy and a testosterone treatment for boys with Constitutional Delay in Growth in Puberty (CDGP) to its product pipeline

Both new therapies have the potential of being best-in-class treatments and were spawned from the same platform technology originally licensed from WUHS. The CDGP treatment utilizes TSX-002's formulation and is targeting an orphan indication approval. TesoRx is replacing the TSX-002 formulation targeting hypogonadism in men with a next generation modified Testosterone treatment leveraging its platform technology that will be known as THG-1001.

US FDA grants orphan designation for TesoRx’s Oral formulation of Unmodified Testosterone for the treatment of Constitutional Delay of Growth and Puberty
(CDGP) in Adolescent Boys

CDGP is diagnosed in approximately 100,000 adolescent boys in the USA each year exhibiting delayed growth and a transient state of hypogonadism. It is characterized by a significant fall in height and weight below the average of their peers and a lack of sexual maturation. TSX-002 represents an exciting potential treatment option for patients compared to the current standard of care. Depot injections are prone to poor patient acceptance and potentially harmful testosterone peaks that may lead to closing patients’ growth platelets prematurely. Orphan designation is advantageous affording the possibility for a more efficient approval pathway, premium pricing and the possibility of qualifying for an FDA Accelerated Review Voucher (ARV).
