“We continue to execute on our plan to launch new OTC drugs to leverage our success with FlutiCare® and other drugs and devices we have in the United States. Regoxidine™ is just one of many new OTC drugs we are interested in commercializing in the U.S.,” said Dr. Bassam Damaj, Innovus Pharma’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to our FlutiCare® product, this Regoxidine™ product represents the second OTC ANDA product that we have launched or expect to launch in the United States. With the limited competition in this space, we believe that a great opportunity for a national brand to compete with Rogaine®* exists and we want to take advantage of it.”

“Our goal is to launch Regoxidine™ in the U.S. in the second half of this year,” added Dr. Damaj.
