Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) - What is the clinical issue? Frequently recurring infection that can be difficult to treat • The most common vaginal infection in women ages 15-441 • Estimated to affect ~21 million women in the U.S.1 • Current prescription drugs are less than optimal with clinical cure rates ranging from 37-68%2 BV increases clinical risks3 • Preterm birth – BV is linked to premature deliveries and low birth weight babies • Sexually transmitted infections – BV makes women more susceptible to sexually transmitted infections, such as HIV, herpes simplex virus, chlamydia or gonorrhea • BV may increase the risk of developing a post-surgical infection after gynecologic procedures • BV can sometimes cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), an infection of the uterus and the fallopian tubes that can increase the risk of infertility 1. https://www.cdc.gov/std/bv/stats.htm 7 2.

Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD) The global female sexual dysfunction treatment market is expected to grow at ~37% CAGR from 2019 - 2023 1 1. https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190628005277/en/Global-Female-Sexual-Dysfunction-Treatment-Market-2019-2023
Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% FSAD - what is the clinical issue? • Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD) is characterized primarily by an inability to attain or maintain sufficient genital arousal during sexual activity and, of the female sexual function disorders, is most analogous to erectile dysfunction (ED) in men.* • The condition should be distinguished from a general loss of interest in sexual activity and from other sexual dysfunctions, such as the orgasmic disorder (anorgasmia) and hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), which is characterized as a lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity for some period of time.1,2 *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. 19 1. https://drgeo.com/womens-sexual-health-overview/; 2. https://health.usnews.com/conditions/sexual-disorder-dysfunction
Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% FSAD - what is the incidence? 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 Market research estimates: • 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 1. McCool et al. Sex Med Rev 2016;4:197-212. 20 2. Ad Hoc Market Research: FSAD Prevalence Report (Oct 2015) conducted for SST LLC. 3. Based on US Census projections for 2016.
Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% 1 Topically administered Sildenafil Cream is… • A PDE5 inhibitor utilized in ED medications for men (Viagra®) • Designed to increase local blood flow to provide an improvement in genital arousal response • Applied topically, avoiding hepatic first-pass metabolism response resulting in lower systemic exposure resulting in reduced side effects compared to oral sildenafil, including Viagra® • Given the similarities between ED and FSAD, the active ingredient in Viagra® - sildenafil - may improve genital arousal response and overall sexual experience for women as it does in men There are no FDA-approved treatments for FSAD 21 1.
