TesoRx and CoreRx Announce Joint Venture to Manufacture First-in-Class Oral Testosterone Drug

Menlo Park, CA and Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) September 03, 2013

TesoRx Pharma, LLC and CoreRx, Inc. today announced a manufacturing joint venture to produce TSX-002, a first-in-class oral testosterone drug targeting the $2.5Billion low testosterone market. TesoRx’s novel, proprietary formulation orally delivers therapeutic levels of unmodified testosterone in a safe and convenient manner. The company will be commencing its final Phase 3 Clinical Study in Q1 of 2014.

“This joint venture solidifies our ability to manufacture TSX-002 to the highest standards in an environment that can easily scale from our current level through Phase 3 and, ultimately, commercial release,” said Ramachandran “TR” Thirucote, Ph.D., CEO of TesoRx. “The CoreRx team has set itself apart with its service commitment and innovation, making them an obvious choice as TesoRx moves to the next phase of development.”

“This project represents a significant expansion in both the size and mission of CoreRx,” said Todd R. Daviau, President and CEO. “An oral therapy is long overdue in the treatment of male hormone deficiency and is the cornerstone of TesoRx’s current portfolio. We are happy to have been chosen as TesoRx’s development partner and are looking forward to this long-term manufacturing project with TesoRx.”

The acquisition of the Myerlake II site will add approximately 47,000 sq.ft. of additional manufacturing and office space. TesoRx plans to begin construction in the buildings across from CoreRx’s current 35,000 sq.ft. facility in the ICOT Center campus. It will house several additional suites dedicated to process development, clinical trial manufacturing and commercial manufacturing of hormone products.

Work on the expansion has already begun and should be completed by the middle of Q2 2014.
