Testopel® To Sponsor Professional Golfer Wrongly Accused of Doping
Date:3/1/2011

DURHAM, N.C., March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Slate Pharmaceuticals  --  Testopel®, an FDA-approved testosterone replacement therapy product marketed by Slate Pharmaceuticals, Inc. of Durham, North Carolina, announced today that it has entered into a sponsorship agreement with professional golfer Doug Barron.
