Low Testosterone in Men

enrollingNow

LOW TESTOSTERONE - Can leave you feeling out of tune. If you're struggling with low testosterone, learn more about the inTUne research study.

In this study, local doctors are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an oral investigational medication for the treatment of low testosterone. They want to compare the investigational medication to a topical medication called Axiron®, which has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of low testosterone.

The investigational medication is unique in that it is designed to be recognized by the body as a fat. Other oral medications for low testosterone are broken down by the liver and intestines before most of the testosterone is able to reach the bloodstream. By appearing to be a fat to the body, the investigational medication may be able to avoid being broken down before all of the testosterone reaches the bloodstream, which allows for more testosterone to circulate in the bloodstream.

The results of this study will provide more information about the investigational medication and its effect on low testosterone.
