Hormone Mediated CNS Mediated PDE5 Inhibitor Vulvar-Vaginal Hypoactive Sexual Female Sexual Dyspareunia Desire Disorder Atrophy (HSDD) Arousal Disorder (FSAD) No Approved Products Of the various types of female sexual dysfunction disorders, FSAD is most analogous to erectile dysfunction (ED) in men and is characterized primarily by an inability to attain or maintain sufficient genital arousal during sexual activity that causes distress or interpersonal difficulty. Despite several approved prescription products for ED, no pharmacologic options have yet been approved by the FDA for FSAD. Sildenafil, the active ingredient in Sildenafil Cream, is marketed in an oral dosage form under the brand name Viagra® for the treatment of ED in men. With its approval of Addyi®, FDA acknowledged and formally classified the distinct and separate disorders that comprise Female Sexual Dysfunction. Where HSDD is characterized primarily by a lack of sexual desire, FSAD is characterized primarily by an inability to attain or maintain sufficient physical sexual arousal.

FSAD is characterized primarily by an inability to attain or maintain sufficient physical sexual arousal; it is also characterized by distress or interpersonal difficulty.* • Estimated 23-33% of women suffer from arousal disorder: • Meta-analysis of 95 studies from 2000-2014 indicated the prevalence of Female Sexual Dysfunction in premenopausal women worldwide is 40.9%, and difficulty with arousal alone is 23%.1 • 33% of women in the U.S. age 21 to 60 (approximately 20 million women), experience symptoms of low or no sexual arousal.2,3 • 10 million women are considered distressed and actively seeking treatment.2 *Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 4th Edition Text Revision (DSM IV TR), defines female sexual arousal disorder as a persistent or recurrent inability to attain or to maintain until completion of the sexual activity, an adequate lubrication-swelling response of sexual excitement. The diagnostic criteria also state that the inability causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty, is not better accounted for by another Axis I disorder (except another sexual dysfunction) and is not due exclusively to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition. 1.

Positive Data - Thermography Study “The results from the first six subjects to complete all assessments indicate the utility of thermography technology to detect statistically meaningful differences in genital temperature changes, a surrogate for genital blood flow, and support the ongoing evaluation of Sildenafil Cream as a treatment for FSAD.” Dr. Tuuli Kukkonen, C.Psych., an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada • Thermography utilizes sensitive cameras capable of detecting and recording temperature variations over time. • Genital temperature changes are a surrogate for genital blood flow.
