About MED2005: Eroxon® - Topical treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED)
MED2005, which uses Futura's DermaSys® drug delivery system, is the development name for its topical glyceryl trinitrate ("GTN") gel. It has the potential to be a highly differentiated therapy for the treatment of men with ED, especially mild to moderate ED. MED2005's rapid onset of action means that it has the potential to become the world's fastest-acting treatment for ED, with a speed of onset of around five minutes. Viagra® and Cialis® which dominate the existing on-market ED therapies are taken orally and do not take effect for at least 30 minutes and typically one hour or more2. Speed of onset and method of administration of MED2005 also help restore spontaneity and intimacy. Importantly, MED2005 may also be appropriate for ED sufferers on nitrates and other drugs that are contraindicated for use with phosphodiesterase-5-inhibitors ("PDE5Is") such as Viagra® and Cialis® and other existing oral ED treatments.
