DARE-BV1 Clindamycin 2% gel for Bacterial Vaginosis Best-in-class curative potential for the most common1 vaginal infection in women of reproductive age, designed for convenient, one-time administration Expect pre-NDA meeting with FDA early 2021, planned NDA submission 1H 2021 91. https://www.cdc.gov/std/bv/stats.htm
Bacterial Vaginosis - What Is the clinical issue? Recurring infection, difficult to treat effectively • Most common vaginal infection in women ages 15-44, affecting ~21 million women in the US1 • Current Rx suboptimal: clinical cure rates of 37-68%2 Bacterial Vaginosis increases health risk3 • Preterm birth – bacterial vaginosis is linked to premature deliveries, low birth weight babies • Sexually transmitted infections – bacterial vaginosis increases susceptibility to HIV, herpes simplex virus, chlamydia, gonorrhea • Post-surgical infection – bacterial vaginosis may increase risk of infection after gynecologic procedures • Pelvic inflammatory disease – bacterial vaginosis may cause PID, an infection that affects women’s reproductive organs and can increase the risk of infertility 101. https://www.cdc.gov/std/bv/stats.htm 2.

Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% Potential First-In-Category treatment for Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD), which has no FDA-approved therapies Novel cream formulation of sildenafil to treat FSAD, utilizing active ingredient in Viagra® 13
FSAD – The Clinical Issue Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD) is characterized primarily by inability to attain or maintain sufficient genital arousal during sexual activity and, of 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 orgasmic disorder (anorgasmia) and hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), which is characterized as lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity for some period of time.1,2 14 *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. https://drgeo.com/womens-sexual-health-overview/; 2. https://health.usnews.com/conditions/sexual-disorder-dysfunction FSAD HSDD
FSAD – What Is the Incidence? 15 Meta-analysis of 95 studies from 2000-2014 indicated prevalence of Female Sexual Dysfunction in premenopausal women worldwide is 41%, and difficulty with arousal alone is 23%.1 Market research estimates: • 33% of US women aged 21 to 60 (~ 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. 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%, (formerly SST-6007) 2. https://qz.com/quartzy/1238783/its-the-20th-anniversary-of-viagra-heres-how-its-changed-the-world/#:~:text=Annual%20sales%20of%20Viagra%20peaked,Viagra%20is%20set%20to%20expire . Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% - Product Profile Topically administered investigational Sildenafil Cream1 is… • A PDE5 inhibitor utilized in ED medications for men – ED product Viagra® peaked at $2.05 billion in sales in 2012.2 • Designed to increase local blood flow to provide improvement in genital arousal response. • Applied topically, avoiding hepatic first-pass metabolism response, resulting in lower systemic exposure potentially resulting in reduced side effects vs. oral sildenafil, including Viagra® • Given similarities between ED and FSAD, sildenafil - the active ingredient in Viagra® - may improve genital arousal response and overall sexual experience for women as it does in men. There are no FDA-approved treatments for FSAD 16
17 Sildenafil Cream, 3.6% - Phase 2b The planned Phase 2b clinical study aims to evaluate Sildenafil Cream vs. placebo over 12 weeks of dosing following both a non-drug and placebo run-in period. • Compares Sildenafil Cream vs. placebo in patients’ home setting. • Primary endpoint: patient reported outcome (PRO) instruments to measure improvement in localized genital sensations of arousal and reduction in FSAD related distress. • Several exploratory efficacy endpoints will be measured and could become additional measurements of efficacy in a future Phase 3 program.

19 • Bayer received the right to obtain exclusive US rights to commercialize the product, following completion of the pivotal clinical trial if Bayer, in its sole discretion, pays Daré $20 million. • Daré may receive up to $310 million in commercial milestone payments, plus double- digit, tiered royalties on net sales. • Bayer supports the development and regulatory process by providing up to two full-time equivalents (internal experts) in an advisory capacity, which gives Daré access to their global manufacturing, regulatory, medical and commercial expertise. We believe the licensing agreement with Bayer is validation of our broader corporate strategy and confirmation of Ovaprene’s market potential, if approved, as the first monthly non-hormonal contraceptive product in the US market. * https://www.mirena-us.com/; supported by 2014-2016 SHS data. 1. https://ir.darebioscience.com/news-releases/news-release-details/bayer-and-dare-bioscience-announce-exclusive-licensing-agreement January 2020 - Bayer, which markets the $1 billion Mirena contraceptive franchise, and Daré announced the execution of a license agreement under which Bayer may commercialize Ovaprene investigational contraceptive in the US once approved by FDA.

DARE-BV1 Clindamycin 2% gel for Bacterial Vaginosis
N=307 subjects enrolled (age 15 and above) Duration ~30 days per subject Diagnosis - Bacterial vaginosis Definitions: Primary Endpoint: Clinical Cure (Day 21-30 visit): Resolution of the abnormal vaginal discharge associated with BV; Negative 10% KOH “whiff test”; Clue cells < 20% of the total epithelial cells in the saline wet mount. Secondary endpoints: Proportion of subjects with Clinical Cure, Bacteriological Cure and Therapeutic Cure at Day 7-14 Visit Bacteriological Cure: a Nugent score < 4. Therapeutic Cure: both a Clinical Cure and Bacteriological Cure. DARE-BV1- Phase 3 Study Design & Demographics1 29 • DARE-BVFREE randomized 307 women at 32 centers across the US in a 2:1 ratio to receive a single vaginal dose of DARE-BV1 (N=204) or a single vaginal dose of placebo gel (N=103). • The intent to treat (ITT)2 population comprised primarily patients aged 15 to 51 years, with a mean age of 34.8 (б=8.8) and median age of 35. Over 53% of the ITT population qualified as obese (BMI ≥30.0), with a mean BMI of 31.50 (б=8.5). • In the ITT population, 56.0% of women identified as Black or African American, 41% identified as white and 25.5% identified as of Hispanic or Latino origin (compared to 74.5% as not of Hispanic or Latino origin). • In addition, more than 75% of women in the ITT population reported one or more episodes of bacterial vaginosis diagnosed in the 12 months before they were randomized into the study (76.9% in the DARE-BV1 group and 73.8% in the placebo group). DARE-BV1 is a thermosetting vaginal gel formulated with clindamycin phosphate 2%, a well-known and well-characterized antibiotic designed for prolonged, localized release. 1. Data on file. 2. ITT population N=307 3. Visit occurred 7 to 14 days after study drug administration. 4. Visit occurred 21 to 30 days after study drug administration. The DARE-BVFREE study’s two treatment arms were well balanced in terms of age, race, ethnicity, bacterial vaginosis history, and body mass index (BMI). 3 4
• The study’s primary endpoint was clinical cure of bacterial vaginosis determined at Day 21- 30 visit in the modified intent-to-treat (mITT) study population (N=180). 1 • The study met its primary endpoint, demonstrating single administration of DARE-BV1 proved statistically superior to placebo (p-value < 0.001) at Day 21-30 visit. • DARE-BV1 also demonstrated statistically significant efficacy in all five pre-specified secondary efficacy assessments. • Summary of clinical cure results (mITT population), p-value < 0.001: • DARE-BV1 was well tolerated in the study. 30 DARE-BVFREE Phase 3 Study DARE-BV1 (N = 121) Placebo (N = 59) Clinical Cure at Day 7-14 visit 76.0% 23.7% Clinical Cure at Day 21-30 visit (primary endpoint) 70.2% 35.6% 1. In accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance, the mITT population (N=180) excludes subjects from the intent-to-treat (ITT) population (N=307) who subsequently demonstrated a positive test result for other concomitant vaginal or cervical infections at baseline.

This exploratory study1 in four postmenopausal women diagnosed with VVA demonstrated that a self- administered vaginal suppository containing tamoxifen (20mg) dosed daily for one week and twice weekly for three months was effective in reducing vaginal pH and vaginal dryness. In addition, systemic absorption of tamoxifen was not significant: • After 8 weeks of study treatment with vaginal tamoxifen, median plasma concentration of tamoxifen was 5.8 ng/ml, with a range of 1.0 to 10.0 ng/ml • In comparison, after 3 months of administration of 20mg, once-daily oral tamoxifen citrate (Nolvadex),3 the average steady state plasma concentration of tamoxifen is 122 ng/ml with a range of 71 to 183 ng/ml 421.
