The Dallas Based, Direct-to-Consumer Telemedicine Company Secures Marketing Agreement with Marius Pharmaceuticals Bringing KYZATREX to the Telehealth Market as ‘Prime’ by MangoRx

Dallas, Texas & Raleigh, NC, Dec. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mangoceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGRX) (“MangoRx” or the “Company”), a company focused on developing, marketing, and selling a variety of men’s health and wellness products via a secure telemedicine platform, including its uniquely formulated hair growth product (‘GROW’) and erectile dysfunction (ED) drug (‘Mango’), is excited to announce that it has entered into a Marketing Agreement with Marius Pharmaceuticals ("Marius") to market and sell KYZATREX®️, an innovative FDA-approved oral Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) product, under the program, 'PRIME' by MangoRx.

PRIME will be available on MangoRx’s telemedicine platform with an anticipated launch date of January 31, 2024.

KYZATREX, a prescription drug that is used to treat adult men who have low or no testosterone levels due to certain medical conditions, is one of only three FDA approved TRT treatments that is delivered orally--as opposed to the traditional, invasive, and inconvenient injection-based drug delivery protocol. KYZATREX delivers testosterone in a softgel capsule that is absorbed primarily via the lymphatic system, avoiding liver toxicity.

Testosterone deficiency is often first recognized through symptoms of fatigue or low energy, decreased sex drive, lower muscle mass and many other negative downstream impacts. PRIME, powered by KYZATREX, can help men restore Testosterone to normal levels and improve how they feel. In a 6-month open-label clinical study of 139 hypogonadal patients, 88% of patients taking KYZATREX had normal testosterone levels at Day 90 (worst case scenario (WCS) efficacy calculation, excluding Site 104).1 Among study completers (n=127), 96% of KYZATREX patients achieved normal testosterone levels at Day 90.2 With PRIME, MangoRx will expand broad-based consumer access to this innovative therapy.

TRT treatments have traditionally been delivered through intramuscular needle injection, a subcutaneous implant, or a topical gel. These applications have suffered from different drawbacks depending on the delivery method, such as painful administration, uneven absorption, risk of transfer to others, and disruptions to the body's natural diurnal rhythm allowing for peak performance early in the day.

Twice daily oral TRTs offer painless administration, promote steady absorption, lower SHGB levels, increase free T levels to give the body more usable testosterone, and work with the body's natural diurnal rhythm. Oral softgels are also convenient, mess-free, and discreet.

Shalin Shah, CEO of Marius, shared, “This expansion into telehealth marks an important step in the care of Testosterone Deficient patients. Testosterone Deficiency is a serious chronic disease and has been inadequately addressed by previous generations of products. KYZATREX marks a shift in the treatment paradigm and a meaningful opportunity for patients seeking to restore optimal testosterone levels. Marius is excited to partner with MangoRx as an innovative partner in the DTC marketplace. We look forward to the Mango team bringing more awareness around the significance of Testosterone as a metabolic hormone and its role in optimal health for men with Low T.”

PRIME by MangoRx will bring KYZATREX to patients spanning 48 states through the Company’s telemedicine platform, which is optimized to deliver a smooth medical prescription process, including blood work and synchronous telehealth visits with a fully licensed prescribing physician. Orders will be reviewed and, pending approval, fulfilled, then discreetly shipped via MangoRx’s URAC accredited mail order partner pharmacy directly to the patient’s doorstep.

Jacob Cohen, MangoRx’s Co-Founder and CEO, noted, “PRIME represents a critical expansion into a new vertical with massive market potential and very little competition on the consumer side, while remaining completely consistent with our established identity as a company committed to providing new and innovative pharmaceutical based solutions helping men achieve optimal performance in all areas of life. We are extremely fortunate to be working with Marius and to be one of only a few companies with access to this innovative product. With our established marketing and telemedicine infrastructure in place, we are ready to hit the ground running and take PRIME to patients in need across the country next month."

Testosterone deficiency affects approximately four in ten men older than 45 years and 30-50% of men with obesity or type 2 diabetes, according to the Endocrine Society.3,4 Between 10% and 40% of men worldwide suffer from low testosterone levels.5

About KYZATREX® (testosterone undecanoate)

KYZATREX is a proprietary softgel oral formulation absorbed primarily via the lymphatic system (meaning it is not toxic to the liver) and indicated in adult males for conditions associated with a deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone. The safety and efficacy of KYZATREX was demonstrated in a phase 3, multi-center, open-label, six-month study in 155 hypogonadal males between 18 and 65 years of age with documented hypogonadism, as defined by a below normal serum testosterone level (≤281 ng/dL) and at least one sign or symptom of testosterone deficiency. In the efficacy population (n=139), 88 percent of hypogonadal men treated with KYZATREX achieved a mean plasma total testosterone concentration (Cavg) over 24 hours within the normal range (222-800 ng/dL) on the final pharmacokinetic (PK) visit of the study at Day 90 (primary endpoint). Based on exploratory endpoints, patients who received KYZATREX reported improvements in symptoms of low testosterone, including quality of life, energy/fatigue, erectile function, sexual intercourse, and mood. The most common side effect reported in ≥2 percent of KYZATREX patients was increased blood pressure (2.6%). The safety and efficacy of KYZATREX in males less than 18 years old have not been established.

Important Safety Information for KYZATREX® (testosterone undecanoate capsules)

KYZATREX® (testosterone undecanoate) is a prescription drug that is used to treat adult men who have low or no testosterone levels due to certain medical conditions.

KYZATREX is a controlled substance (CIII) because it contains testosterone. It is not known if KYZATREX is safe or effective in males younger than 18 years old. Improper use may affect bone growth in children. KYZATREX is not meant for use by women.

Important Safety Information for KYZATREX®

KYZATREX can increase blood pressure, which can increase the risk of having a heart attack or stroke and can increase risk of death due to a heart attack or stroke. Your risk may be greater if you have already had a heart attack or stroke or if you have other risk factors for heart attack or stroke.

  • If your blood pressure increases while on KYZATREX, blood pressure medicines may need to be started. If you are currently taking blood pressure medicines, they may need to be changed or new blood pressure medicines may need to be added to control your blood pressure.
  • If your blood pressure cannot be controlled, KYZATREX may need to be stopped.
  • Your healthcare provider will monitor your blood pressure while you are being treated with KYZATREX.

Do not take KYZATREX if you: have breast cancer; have or might have prostate cancer; are a woman who is pregnant (KYZATREX may harm your unborn baby); are allergic to KYZATREX or any of its ingredients; or have low testosterone without certain medical conditions (e.g., do not take KYZATREX if you have low testosterone due to age).

Before you take KYZATREX, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: have high blood pressure or are treated for high blood pressure; have a history of diabetes; have heart problems; have high red blood cell count (hematocrit) or high hemoglobin laboratory value; have urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate; have liver or kidney problems; or have problems breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea).

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Taking KYZATREX with certain other medicines can affect each other. Especially, tell your healthcare provider if you take: insulin; medicines that decrease blood clotting (blood thinners); corticosteroids; or medicines that increase blood pressure, such as some cold medicine and pain medicines.

KYZATREX may cause other serious side effects including:

  • Increase in red blood cell count (hematocrit) or hemoglobin, which can increase the risk of blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks. You may need to stop KYZATREX if your red blood cell count increases.
  • If you already have an enlarged prostate, your signs and symptoms may worsen while taking KYZATREX. These may include: increased urination at night; trouble starting your urine stream; urinating many times during the day; urge to go to the bathroom right away; a urine accident; inability to pass urine or weak urine flow.
  • Increased risk of prostate cancer.
  • Blood clots in the legs or lungs. Signs and symptoms of a blood clot in your leg can include pain, swelling or redness. Signs and symptoms of a blood clot in your lungs can include difficulty breathing or chest pain.
  • Abuse. Testosterone can be abused when taken at higher than prescribed doses and when used with other anabolic androgenic steroids. Abuse can cause serious heart and psychological side effects.
  • In large doses, KYZATREX may lower your sperm count.
  • Liver problems. Symptoms of liver problems may include: nausea or vomiting; yellowing of your skin or whites of your eyes; dark urine; pain on the right side of your stomach area (abdominal pain).
  • Swelling of your ankles, feet, or body (edema), with or without heart failure.
  • Enlarged or painful breasts.
  • Breathing problems while you sleep (sleep apnea).

Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any of the serious side effects listed above.

The most common side effect of KYZATREX is high blood pressure. Other side effects may include: headache, joint or back pain, diarrhea, increased red blood cell count, anxiety, constipation, swelling of the legs, and increased prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels.

These are not all the possible side effects of KYZATREX. For more information, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
