About LP-10

LP-10 is a liposomal tacrolimus formulation for intravesical administration to treat hemorrhagic cystitis (HC). LP-10 has been evaluated in a multi-center Phase 2a dose escalation trial of 13 subjects with moderate to severe refractory HC. Positive top line results demonstrated safety and efficacy, short duration of systemic uptake of LP-10, and a dose response including decreased hematuria, decreased cystoscopic bleeding and ulceration sites, and improved urinary symptoms in patients. Lipella has been granted Orphan Disease Designation by the FDA for LP-10 in the treatment of moderate to severe hemorrhagic cystitis.

About Hemorrhagic Cystitis

Hemorrhagic cystitis (HC), a severe yet rare condition often triggered by pelvic radiation therapy and specific chemotherapies, is characterized by gross hematuria and currently lacks approved drug treatment. Lipella's LP-10 stands at the forefront of addressing this unmet medical need.
