Press release: Uppsala, May 2, 2023. Dicot's development of its potency drug candidate LIB-01 is proceeding according to plan and the company has now scheduled the start of its phase 1 trial for August 2023 at CTC AB who will conduct the study.

Dicot is developing a new potency drug that aims to become the first choice of treatment for erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. The company has previously announced that it intends to start clinical phase 1 trial on the drug candidate LIB-01 in mid-2023. To ensure a start according to plan, the company has now reserved capacity at the contracted research clinic and the start date is set for August 2023. The reputable CTC AB in Uppsala will conduct the study. The start in August must be preceded by Dicot submitting the necessary documents to the Swedish Medical Products Agency and receiving permission to start the study.
