Acerus announced that its agreement with an affiliate of Endo International plc regarding the commercialization of Natesto (testosterone) nasal gel in the U.S. and Mexico will be terminated as of June 30, 2016. Endo will continue to sell and distribute Natesto in the U.S. until the date of termination.
Natesto nasal gel, a CIII controlled substance, was initially approved in May 2014 and launched in March 2015. Acerus stated its plans to find a new Natesto partner in the U.S. to continue the supply.
