Utilising the wisdom of a plant to treat sexual dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction has a serious negative effect on quality of life as well as socioeconomic impacts. The current treatments fail to offer a more natural sex life that does not involve prior planning as a prerequisite for sexual intercourse. A novel drug candidate for the treatment of the common types of sexual dysfunction is DIC2024. DIC2024 utilises a principle from Libiguin, a substance derived from a native plant in Madagascar, to induce long-term effects. The EU-funded LIBSED project is developing a business plan to guide clinical development and commercialisation strategies for DIC2024.
