Indevus Pharmaceuticals is a specialty pharmaceutical company engaged in the acquisition, development and commercialization of products to treat conditions in urology and endocrinology. Our approved products include SANCTURA® and SANCTURA® XR for overactive bladder, which we co-promote with our partner Allergan, Inc., VANTAS® for advanced prostate cancer, SUPPRELIN® LA for central precocious puberty, and DELATESTRYL® for the treatment of hypogonadism. We market our products through an approximately 100-person specialty sales force.
Our core urology and endocrinology portfolio contains multiple compounds in development in addition to our approved products. Our most advanced compounds are NEBIDO® for male hypogonadism, VALSTAR™ for bladder cancer, PRO 2000 for the prevention of infection by HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases, the octreotide implant for acromegaly and a biodegradable ureteral stent used in association with the treatment of kidney stones.
In addition to our core urology and endocrinology portfolio, there are multiple compounds outside of our core focus area which we either currently outlicense for development and commercialization, or intend to outlicense in the future. These compounds include pagoclone for stuttering, ALKS 27 for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease which we have been jointly developing with Alkermes, Inc., aminocandin for systemic fungal infections for which we licensed the know-how to Novexel S.A. and IP 751 for pain and inflammation for which we recently licensed worldwide rights to Cervelo Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
