SAINT LAURENT, Canada I February 24, 2014 I IntelGenx Corp. (IGX.V) (IGXT) (“IntelGenx”), a Canadian drug delivery company focusing on oral drug delivery, today announced the completion of a pilot biostudy with its proprietary VersaFilm(TM) tadalafil product for erectile dysfunction that indicated bioequivalence with the leading brand reference listed drug (RLD) tadalafil product.

This was a randomized, two-period, two-way crossover study in healthy male subjects. The study was designed to determine whether VersaFilm(TM) tadalafil was bioequivalent as measured by industry standard pharmacokinetic measures of peak plasma concentration (Cmax) and area under the curve (AUC). The study results demonstrated that VersaFilm(TM) tadalafil was within an acceptable range of bioequivalency with the RLD on both of these measures.

“The completion of this pilot biostudy confirms that we can continue the development of our VersaFilm(TM) tadalafil product,” said Rajiv Khosla, IntelGenx’ President and CEO. “We now plan to progress this project, leading to a pivotal bioequivalence study, with the objective of filing a 505(b)(2) NDA with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.”
