LPCN 1144


Changing the Treatment of NASH

Finding A Solution to Fatty Liver Diseases

Targeted For Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

LPCN 1144, an oral prodrug of bioidentical testosterone, is being developed as a treatment for pre-cirrhotic non-alcoholic steatohepatitis ("NASH") and is currently being studied in a Phase 2 paired biopsy NASH confirmed clinical study. Liver imaging results from the Phase 2 clinical study are expected by the end of 2020 with biopsy results expected by the end of the second quarter of 2021.







TLANDO is an oral testosterone replacement therapy product candidate containing Testosterone Undecanoate (TU) that is designed to help restore normal testosterone levels in males for conditions associated with a deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone.

TLANDO is designed to overcome many of the issues related to TRT products on the U.S. market. TLANDO is being studied for both Primary and Secondary hypogonadism and is targeting the established chronic US TRT market.




A Candidate For Oral TRT For Once Daily Dosing


Pioneering For Next Generation Oral TRT

TLANDO XR  is a next-generation, novel ester prodrug of testosterone which uses the patent protected Lip'ral technology to enhance solubility and improve systemic absorption. Lipocine completed a Phase 2b dose finding study in hypogonadal men in 2016. The primary objectives of the Phase 2b clinical study were to determine the starting Phase 3 dose of TLANDO XR along with the safety and tolerability of TLANDO XR and its metabolites following oral administration of single and multiple doses in hypogonadal men. The Phase 2b clinical trial was a randomized, open label, two-period, multi-dose PK study. Results suggested that the primary objectives were met, including identifying the dose expected to be tested in the planned Phase 3 study. Good dose-response relationship was observed over the tested dose range. Additionally, the target Phase 3 dose met primary and secondary end points. TLANDO XR was well tolerated with no drug-related severe or serious adverse events reported in the Phase 2b study.


LPCN 1148

An Oral Prodrug of a Bioidentical Testosterone Being Developed for the Treatment of Cirrhosis


A Therapeutic Treatment For Cirrhosis Patients

Cirrhosis is an end-stage non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) for which there is no FDA approved drug treatment. During 2015, approximately 1.3M NASH patients had cirrhosis (fibrosis grade 4). NASH cirrhosis patients typically experience increased morbidity and symptoms of hypogonadism such as alteration of hair distribution, anemia, sexual dysfunction, testicular atrophy, muscle wasting, fatigue, osteoporosis, and gynecomastia.

Testosterone levels fall progressively with increased chronic liver disease severity. Low testosterone levels, reported in up to 90% of male cirrhotic patients, is known to increase adverse outcomes and is a predictor of mortality in these patients with increased risk of major infections, transplantation rates, increased risk of for hepatic decompensation, worsening of sarcopenia, and higher Child-Pugh score grade and MELD score. This could also include the severity of portal hypertension and ascites grade.

Our team is currently formulating plans to conduct a proof-of-concept study in male subjects with cirrhosis through consultations with the FDA and key opinion leaders to evaluate the therapeutic potential of LPCN 1148 for the treatment of cirrhosis.

LPCN 1107

Oral Product Candidate being Developed For The Prevention Of Recurrent Pre-Term Birth


Pre-Term Births

LPCN 1107 is an oral product candidate of 17-alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (HPC) under development for the indication of prevention of recurrent preterm birth. LPCN 1107 has the potential to become the first oral HPC product for the prevention of preterm birth in women with a prior history of at least one preterm birth. Potential benefits of our oral product candidate relative to current injectable products include the elimination of pain and site reactions associated with weekly injections, elimination of weekly doctor visits or visits from the nurse, and elimination of interference/disruption of personal, family or professional activities associated with weekly visits.

LIP’RAL Technology



Lip'ral is a patented technology based on lipidic compositions which form an optimal dispersed phase in the gastrointestinal environment for improved absorption of the insoluble drug. Lip'ral presents insoluble drugs efficiently to the intestinal absorption site, thus bringing the absorption process under formulation control and making the product robust to physiological variables such as dilution, pH and food effects.


Utilizes Bioacceptable Excipients


Conventional Manufacturing Processes - Easy To Scale-Up


Compositions Are Stable & Compatable for Encapsulation


Lip'ral enables development of superior oral products with:


Improved Solubilization & High Drug Loading Capacity


Improved Bioavailability


Faster & More Consistant Absorption


Reduced Sensitivity & Improved Patient Compliance

Treated Issues


Best-In-Class Health Solutions

Our revolutionary drug product candidates help combat the following conditions:


Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease ("NAFLD") is a reversible condition wherein large vacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells via the process of steatosis.

NASH is a more advanced state of NAFLD and can progress to a cirrhotic liver and eventually hepatocellular carcinoma or liver cancer. Twenty to thirty percent of the U.S. population is estimated to suffer from NAFLD and fifteen to twenty percent of this group progress to NASH, which is a substantially large population that lacks effective therapy. NAFLD/NASH is becoming more common due to its strong correlation with obesity and metabolic syndrome, including components of metabolic syndrome such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. In men, especially with comorbidities associated with NAFLD/NASH, testosterone deficiency has been associated with an increased accumulation of visceral adipose tissue and insulin resistance, which factors contributing to NAFLD/NASH.

Preclinical and clinical studies in the literature have shown the prevalence of testosterone deficiency across the NAFLD/NASH histological spectrum wherein low testosterone was independently associated with NAFLD/NASH with an inverse relationship between testosterone and NAFLD/NASH.

Post hoc analyses of existing clinical trial in subjects with comorbidities typically associated with NASH indicate that oral testosterone therapy significantly and consistently reduces elevated levels of key serum biomarkers (liver function enzymes and serum triglyceride) generally associated with NAFLD/NASH.

NAFLD prevalence in general population is estimated to be 20-30% in the Western world (Masarone et al, Rev Recent Clin Trials, 2014)
By 2020, prevalence of NAFLD cirrhosis is set to overtake hepatitis B and hepatitis C related cirrhosis (Starley et al, Hepatol, 2010)
The NASH market could peak at $30-40 billion by 2025 (Deutsche Bank industry report, “NASH – the next big global epidemic in 10 years?”, 2014)
