UroGen Pharma is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel therapies designed to change the standard of care for urological pathologies with a focus on uro-oncology. The Company has an innovative and broad pipeline of product candidates that it believes can overcome the deficiencies of current treatment options for a variety of urological conditions with a focus on uro-oncology. The lead product candidates, MitoGel and VesiGel, are proprietary formulations of the chemotherapy drug Mitomycin, a generic drug which is currently used off-label for urothelial cancer treatment in a water-based formulation as an adjuvant, post-surgery, therapy. The Company’s clinical stage pipeline includes Vesimune, its proprietary immunotherapy product candidate for the treatment of high-grade non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.
In addition, BotuGel is a proprietary novel RTGel-based formulation of BOTOX, a branded drug, that it believes can potentially serve as an effective treatment option for patients suffering from overactive bladder. UroGen has licensed the worldwide rights to BotuGel to Allergan Pharmaceuticals International Limited, or Allergan, a wholly owned subsidiary of Allergan plc, which plans to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial of BotuGel.
