Prometheus Announces Co-Pay Assistance Savings Program for LOTRONEX(R) (alosteron HCl) Tablets
Date:9/9/2009

Clinical studies have not been performed to adequately confirm the benefits of LOTRONEX in men. Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established. Use of LOTRONEX is not recommended in the pediatric population, based upon the risk of serious complications of constipation and ischemic colitis in adults.

LOTRONEX has a boxed warning regarding serious gastrointestinal adverse events that have been reported with the use of LOTRONEX. These events, including ischemic colitis and serious complications of constipation, have resulted in hospitalizations, blood transfusions, surgery and fatalities.

Contraindications to LOTRONEX include constipation, history of severe bowel or hepatic disorders, lack of understanding of Patient-Physician Agreement and concomitant use of fluvoxamine.
