VagiVital® is a hormone free self-care product for the treatment of vaginal atrophy and vaginal dryness. The product has been tested in randomised clinical studies (vaginal atrophy) with very positive results both for objective (vaginal pH and proportion of superficial cells in the vaginal mucosa) and subjective (most bothersome symptoms, such as vaginal dryness, vaginal irritation/itching, dyspareunia and dysuria) parameters. The magnitude of symptom relief is on par with that demonstrated with e.g. estrogen based products on the market today. It was very well tolerated and caused no serious adverse effects.
PEPTONIC Medical plans to launch VagiVital® as a non-prescription self-care product in 2018.
Peptonic Medical AB (publ) is an innovative Swedish biopharma company developing medicinal products within the field of Women’s Health. Our vision is to offer safe and effective treatments to women suffering from women specific diseases and conditions. The Company’s first product - VagiVital® - has been developed for the treatment of Vaginal Atrophy (VA), a disease affecting approximately fifty per cent of women in menopause and after. VagiVital® is a trademark of Peptonic Medical.
The pipeline of Peptonic Medical also includes Vagitocin®, which is an oxytocin-based vaginal gel for the treatment of VA. This product candidate is in clinical development phase 2. The development of Vagitocin® is on hold pending additional data on i.a. the mechanism of action.
In July 2014, Peptonic Medical was listed on the AktieTorget stock exchange (www.aktietorget.se, ticker: PMED) in Stockholm.
