Futura Medical to Host R&D Day in February 2019

17 December 2018

Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM) (the "Company"), a pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of innovative products for sexual health and pain relief, today announces plans to host an R&D Day in London for analysts and institutional investors on Monday 11 February 2019.

The event will feature a presentation from a Key Opinion Leader in erectile dysfunction ("ED") and will provide an opportunity to hear about the Company, its R&D strategy with a focus on its DermaSys(R) drug delivery technology and lead product MED2005, a topical glyceryl trinitrate ("GTN") gel for the treatment of ED.

James Barder, Chief Executive Officer of Futura Medical, said: "We are looking forward to hosting the event which will build on our initial Advisory Panel meeting hosted by Futura at the 19th Annual Fall Scientific Meeting of Sexual Medicines Society of North America in November 2018, and was extremely well received and productive. The Advisory Panel were unanimous in their view that there has been little recent credible innovation in the treatment of ED. They were therefore excited by the meaningful PK and Phase 2 findings presented on our lead programme MED2005, demonstrating the potential of MED2005 as both a topical and fast-acting erectile dysfunction treatment, key differentiators to other ED products on the market. There was also a unanimous desire by the panel to remain involved with the development programme for MED2005 and the panel look forward to reviewing the results from our ongoing Phase 3 trial when published in Q4 2019."

Dr. Wayne J.G. Hellstrom is Professor of Urology and Chief of Andrology at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans and member of the Futura Medical Advisory Panel, said: "The treatment of ED has not seen any new clinical products for nearly two decades. MED2005 is a novel glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) topical gel with an enhanced absorption delivery system. After application to the glans penis, there is a rapid onset of action (5-10 mins in 70% of spontaneous attempts at intercourse) in contrast to current oral PDE5i's, which can take 30-90 mins to act. This novel topical therapy is easy to use, does not have any food or alcohol interactions, and has excellent tolerability for both patient and partner.

"I am excited to be part of an advisory panel helping to shape the future programme for MED2005 as it enters Phase 3 studies, and I look forward to ultimate approval by the FDA and regulators around the world. It offers new hope to patients who, for whatever reason, are dissatisfied with current therapies or are precluded from their use."

In October 2018, Futura announced that the first patient had been enrolled in the first Phase 3 study, ("FM57") of MED2005 that will recruit approximately 1,000 patients with mild, moderate or severe ED across nine countries in Central and Eastern Europe. The Phase 3 study remains on track, with headline data expected by the end of 2019.

The event will be webcast and will be made available on the investor section of website shortly after the event.
