It must be anticipated at being hot as GlaxoSmithKline and Merck are lining up to market and sell the drug. No water required, no word yet on what the price will be compared to the normal formulation but none of the ED drugs are cheap. BD
German pharmaceutical and chemicals company Bayer AG (BAYN.XE) said Monday that it has received U.S. approval for Staxyn, a new formulation of its erectile dysfunction treatment Levitra.
-Staxyn is a tablet that disintegrates on the tongue without liquid.
-GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Merck & Co. Inc. (MRK), Bayer's U.S. marketing partners, expect to make the medicine available by prescription later this year.
-Bayer has submitted the product for marketing authorization in Europe and expects to receive approval in 2010.
