New Venture Launch: Funding for trials for important new discovery


Published on

The company founder effectively life-hacked a $billion dollar OTC product and was awarded 6 patents for it. The funds raised were to prove efficacy and will probably be the only funding required before licensing.

We took a highly technical breifing and created a story that is both understandable and informative. We developed the brands, strategy, copy, graphics, and put together the deck and arranged key meetings with investors.

New Venture Launch: Funding for trials for important new discovery

  1. 1. 100M people in the US suffer from a problem for which we have a strong solution. The patents are issued, we are raising funds for FDA trial... PAXEROL™ for NOCTURIA 07.21.2014
  2. 2. Misery associated with nocturia Insomnia, fatigue, depression, lower quality of life US lost work time $60B/year Incontinence care currently 25% of the costs of nursing home care Heart disease, stroke, brain damage, hip fractures NOCTURIA is the #1 urology complaint of men and women 55-84 65%of people ages 55-84 100Msufferers in US (2.2B worldwide) THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT UNMET MEDICAL NEED AS NO CURRENT DRUG TREATS LOW NOCTURNAL BLADDER CAPACITY 2
  3. 3. Paxerol is a unique 8 hour extended release formulation that provides increased nocturnal bladder capacity (NBC) through the night. (+50-100%) HOW IT WORKS: For 76% of people suffering from nocturia, low NBC is a key issue. The cause is excess Prostaglandins (PGE2) that irritate the bladder. For sufferers of Nocturia and Over Active Bladder, a combination of APAP & ibuprofen will inhibit PGE2 production to increase comfortable bladder capacity. People are informally using the combination of already approved drugs. It is proving effective for 80%. Our next step is to prove efficacy in trials. Our use of these drugs for this purpose and the addition of the timed release aspect are protected by numerous broad patents. 3 INTRODUCING APAP ibuprofen + time release Paxerol has three synergistic mechanisms of action.

  6. 6. 6 Vesicare, Enablex, Myrbetriq • Effects often take months • Large % do not respond • Severe side effects • 43–83% stop in < 30 days • 10-15% fewer bathroom trips • Treats annoying problem • Significant competition OVERACTIVE BLADDER DRUGS 2M patients (0.1%) $2B SALES • Effects in as little as 30 mins. • 80% positive (anecdotal) • No side effects • 20% drop out (anecdotal) • 33-100% fewer nightly trips • Treats dangerous problem • No current competition $2-8B SALES ? Proving effective for OAB, but focused on treatment of bladder problems related to sleep
  7. 7. 7 Actionable Market $2-8B SALES 2018 Paxerol is a new product that is effective in ways that current OAB (over active bladder) products are not. *source 2013 Report by Debra E. Irwin et al / Company estimates NOT A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM 1 x per night 1.2 Billion 423 Million Unaffordable 600 Million 130 Million No efficacy 50 Million Medical Issues $0.30 / dose/daily = $39B annual sales potential (retail) NOTE: Forecasting a new market is highly speculative. 2.4 Billion sufferers  es'mated  by  2018    
  8. 8. Almost all regulatory bodies outside US permit use of unlicensed drugs (“Specials”). We have an agreement for such distribution of Paxerol. Contract signed April 2014 (Q1 2015 launch) with Ethicor Pharma, Ltd. (UK). Plan to launch Paxerol with support of key opinion leaders, education sessions, and published articles. Partnered with UDG, UK’s largest prescription drug distributor. Ethicor exits when big pharma enters markets. Top end price target – $5/dose controlled by Ethicor Gross profit estimate – 98% Only ages 60+, EU, MENA, and SA, with no advertising 8 Ethicor Short-term Revenues 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 TOTAL $832 $6,611 $26,949 $50,538 $73,161 $151,091 $k Ethicor Projected Income
  9. 9. We have protocol feedback and indications of interest from key global pharmaceutical leaders. Licensee to complete trials, patents, and launch Paxerol. We are expecting an upfront payment after Phase 2 trial (mid-2015), milestone payments, 15% royalty. 9 Big Pharma License
  10. 10. Safe Drug, low risk Huge unmet need. Tight patent barrier through 2030 10 Strengths of This Investment This is not a new chemical entity. Approval can be attained with a simpler, relatively inexpensive trial: Avoids Phase 1 Trial safety tests, and years of risk from unexpected side effects. Strong Ethicor validation. International sales begin before trial completion, mitigates risk. Mid-2015 worldwide big pharma license. Strong ROI @ up to 94% net profit. $3M to positive Cash flow 12-15 months 1 2 3 4 5 $787K raised so far primarily through pooled due diligence of Keiretsu Forum.

  14. 14. • 22 patients informally tested Paxerol for a Johns Hopkins physician. 17 reported good results (fewer nightly bathroom trips). (77%) • 18 patients have since tested Paxerol, with 15 reporting good results (1-4 fewer nightly bathroom trips). • Placebo effects are always possible, but much less likely when sleeping. • 32 of 40 patients (80%) self-report success – without placebo controls. • 3 articles report OAB suffers’urine averages 700% higher PGE2 levels - Paxerol addresses PGE2 levels. 14 Anecdotal Evidence
  15. 15. Independent clinical studies consistently report that ~70% of nocturia patients experience improvement when taking appropriate doses of certain NSAIDs 80% of patients with neurogenic bladder and 74% of patients with BPH experience improvement in nocturia when taking appropriate doses of NSAIDs (consistent with animal studies) Johns Hopkins proves NSAIDs reduce bladder spasms Ohio State preclinical model of bladder function showed acetaminophen equal to NSAIDs in reducing inflammation, achieved through independent mechanisms of action Together acetaminophen and NSAIDs impact multiple independent molecular pathways to relieve nocturia symptoms 15 Supporting Research
