Utah Patent of the Month – February 2021

Most testosterone based pharmaceuticals use dose titration schemes to space out the medicine and ensure patients are treated safely. These help as patients absorb and metabolize testosterone at different rates so administering uniform doses are not possible. Lipocine INC. has been designing a new oral testosterone therapy (TT) regimen which does not require dose titrations.

The oral TT is a fixed dose which can be taken once or twice a day as prescribed. The addition of biomarkers are used to track testosterone levels so that, should an unacceptably high level be reached, dosage can be discontinued quickly.They found that a fixed dose within the range of 750-1150 mg per day of a specific testosterone ester allowed for safe and effective TT. With a single or dual oral dose, patients will have easier medication regimens and better treatment strategies in place.
