Chief Medical Officer of Sciele Pharma, said, "We are pleased with the progress Plethora has made with the development of PSD502, which addresses an unmet medical need that affects a significant number of adult males in all age groups.
If patient recruitment proceeds as planned, we would expect to see headline data towards the end of 2008 which will be a major milestone in the life of both this product and Plethora.
