16 XACIATO Important Safety Information* Indication Dosage & Administration Contraindications Warnings & Precautions Adverse Reactions XACIATO (clindamycin phosphate) vaginal gel is a lincosamide antibacterial indicated for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis in female patients 12 years of age and older. Administer one applicatorful (5 g of gel containing 100 mg of clindamycin) once intravaginally as a single dose at any time of the day. Not for ophthalmic, dermal, or oral use. XACIATO is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to clindamycin or lincomycin. • Clostridioides difficile-Associated Diarrhea (CDAD): Discontinue and evaluate if diarrhea occurs • Use with Polyurethane Condoms: Polyurethane condoms are not recommended during treatment with XACIATO or for 7 days following treatment. During this time period, polyurethane condoms may not be reliable for preventing pregnancy or for protecting against transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Latex or polyisoprene condoms should be used. The most common adverse reactions reported in >2% of patients in the Phase 3 placebo-controlled trial and at a higher rate in the XACIATO group than in the placebo group were vulvovaginal candidiasis and vulvovaginal discomfort. *See Full Prescribing Information at: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2021/215650s000lbl.pdf Drug Interactions Systemic clindamycin has neuromuscular blocking properties that may enhance the action of other neuromuscular blocking agents. It should be used with caution in patients receiving such agents.
17 XACIATO Use in Special Populations* Special Populations Special Populations Special Populations • Other clindamycin vaginal products have been used to treat pregnant women during the second and third trimester. XACIATO has not been studied in pregnant women. However, based on the low systemic absorption of XACIATO following the intravaginal route of administration in nonpregnant women, maternal use is not likely to result in significant fetal exposure to the drug. • Similarly, because systemic absorption following intravaginal administration of clindamycin is low, transfer of the drug into breastmilk is likely to be low and adverse effects on the breastfed infant are not expected. • The safety and effectiveness of XACIATO have not been established in pediatric patients younger than 12 years of age or in patients 65 years of age or older. *See Full Prescribing Information at: https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2021/215650s000lbl.pdf

26 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®
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 27 FSAD – The Clinical Issue FSAD HSDD *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 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.*
28 FSAD – What is the incidence? 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.

31 Oral Sildenafil provided a compelling proof of concept for FSAD † Question #2 – “After taking study medication, the sensation/feeling in my genital (vaginal, labia, clitoris) area during intercourse or stimulation (foreplay) seemed to be: (a) more than before, (b) less than before, or (c) unchanged”. Question #4 – “After taking the study medication, intercourse and/or foreplay was: (a) pleasant and satisfying; better than before taking the study medication, (b) unpleasant; worse than before taking study medication, (c) unchanged; no difference, or (d) pleasant; but still not like it used to be or I would like it to be.” 202 postmenopausal women with FSAD who had protocol specified estradiol and free testosterone concentrations, and/or were receiving estrogen and/or androgen replacement therapy were studied. † Twelve healthy premenopausal women were studied.

Following the completion of the treatment period, participants will attend a safety follow-up visit. The primary endpoints of the study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of DARE-VVA1 by vaginal administration and determine the plasma PK of DARE-VVA1 after intravaginal application. Secondary endpoints will evaluate preliminary efficacy and PD of DARE-VVA1 in terms of most bothersome symptom and changes in vaginal cytology and pH. 1. https://ir.darebioscience.com/news-releases/news-release-details/dare-bioscience-initiates-phase-12-clinical-study-dare-vva1
42 ADARE 204/214* Novel 6 & 12-month injectable formulations of etonogestrel being developed as a longer-acting, reversible method of contraception with a more predictable return to fertility. There are currently no FDA approved injectable contraceptives available indicated for 6-12 months protection. ~65M women in U.S. are in the reproductive health and contraception market segment1 The only approved injectable contraceptive product in the U.S. is DEPO-PROVERA CI (medroxyprogesterone acetate) injectable suspension, which is indicated as every 3 months (13 weeks) administered by deep, intramuscular injection in the gluteal or deltoid muscle.2 Some of the limitations with DEPO-PROVERA include the following:2, 3 1. Requires an injection 4 times per year. 2. Unpredictable return to fertility. After stopping Depo-Provera, the median time to conception for those who do conceive is 10 months following last injection (range is 4 to 31 months). 3. Research suggests that Depo-Provera and Depo-SubQ Provera 104 might cause a loss of bone mineral density. This loss might be especially concerning in teens who haven't reached their peak bone mass. And it's not clear whether this loss is reversible. Thus, Depo-Provera is not indicated for longer term use (i.e. more than 2 years). The target product profile potential for ADARE204/214 are 6- and 12- month formulations, minimizing the number of injections required per year, and with a predictable return to fertility relative to the 6- or 12- month contraceptive window. Active is etonogestrel which does not have same black box warning regarding bone loss as medoxyprogesterone acetate.4 *505(b)(2) candidate^ ^Anticipated regulatory pathway.

Unique microbicidal mechanism of action, targeting bacterial surface signal signaling by plasma membrane disruption, potentially preventing development of microbial resistance5 GML has been shown both in vitro and in women to reduce both bacterial and fungal colonization without affecting the healthy bacteria that maintain vaginal health4 and has also been shown in vivo to inhibit viral transmission.6 44 DARE-GML Glycerol monolaurate (GML) is a naturally occurring fatty acid monoester that has shown broad antimicrobial activity, killing bacteria, fungi and viruses, and represents a new class of antimicrobial agents. GML has the potential to be a first-in-category multi-target antimicrobial. Bacterial vaginosis and vulvovaginal candidiasis represent the two most common vaginal infections in the United States, leading to over 30 million treatment visits per year 1,2 1. https://www.cdc.gov/std/bv/stats.htm 2.
