BioSante Pharmaceuticals, (NASDAQ: BPAX) announced today that the independent Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) has completed the ninth unblinded review of the LibiGel Phase III cardiovascular events and breast cancer safety study. The independent DMC has recommended that the LibiGel safety study should continue as per the FDA-agreed protocol, without modifications. LibiGel (testosterone gel) is in development for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction (FSD), specifically, hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in menopausal women.

The objective of the safety study is to show the relative safety of testosterone compared to placebo in the number of cardiovascular (CV) events, as well as the incidence of breast cancer. At the time of this DMC review, there have been 53 adjudicated CV events, with a lower than anticipated event rate of approximately 0.72 percent. In the same population of subjects, there have been 27 breast cancers reported, a rate of approximately 0.37 percent, which is in line with the expected rate based on the ages of the subjects enrolled in the study. At this time, BioSante remains blinded to all data.
