Endo Announces Five Presentations at the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) Annual Meeting

DUBLIN, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Endo International plc (OTC: ENDPQ) announced today that five new presentations related to Peyronie's disease, or PD, and XIAFLEX® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum, or CCH, injection 0.9 mg) will be shared during the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) annual meeting, taking place November 16-19 in San Diego.

"The relatively common condition of Peyronie's disease?estimated to affect 1 in 10 men in the U.S.?remains under-studied and is often misunderstood," said Dr. Jesse Mills, urologist and presenter of the data analysis poster. "Efforts like the post hoc analysis of XIAFLEX® Phase 3 data and the new landmark registry aim to advance medical knowledge of PD and support patient outcomes."

The five new Endo-sponsored and Endo-supported presentations are below:

About the Post Hoc Phase 3 Data Analysis1
A post hoc analysis of pooled data from two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trials was conducted to evaluate CCH treatment and improvement in penile curvature in participants presenting with/without penile pain at baseline and disease duration of 12?18 months or >18 months.

CCH-treated participants were stratified by the reporting of moderate-severe pain or no pain at baseline. Additional subgroup analyses stratified participants by presence of pain and disease duration (12?18 or >18 months). The primary efficacy endpoint was the percentage change in penile curvature at week 52 from baseline.

Data support that there were no clear differences in CCH treatment outcomes between participants experiencing moderate-severe pain or no pain at baseline regardless of disease duration (12?18 versus >18 months). These analyses are consistent with other literature evaluating the efficacy of CCH in the acute phase of disease and suggest that ongoing pain is not a contraindication to CCH therapy.

About the CURVE-PD Registry
CURVE-PD (NCT05873595) is a non-interventional study of up to 1,000 PD patients from 15 sites who have initiated treatment within two weeks before, at or any time after the date of enrollment. Patients will be followed for up to one year, and data will be collected from the patients, their healthcare providers and their partners.

Patients will answer questions related to, but not limited to, reasons for treatment choice, self-measurement of curve before and after treatments; ability to participate in sexual activities before and after treatment; in-home stretching/modeling to complement in-office procedures; satisfaction, depression and anxiety scales, including the Peyronie's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ); and patient and partner satisfaction.

Healthcare providers will answer questions related to, but not limited to, reasons for treatment choice, details of treatment, length and curve of penis before and after treatment and location of plaque treated.

This registry will create the largest and most comprehensive collection of real-world PD data on treatment outcomes.

About Peyronie's Disease
Peyronie's disease (PD) is a condition in which a buildup of fibrous scar tissue causes a curvature deformity of the penis. This curvature can be painful during arousal and intimacy.3 It is estimated that PD can affect as many as 1 in 10 men in the U.S.,4 but diagnosis rates remain low because men with PD may be too uncomfortable to speak up and get help.5

XIAFLEX® is indicated for the treatment of adult men with Peyronie's disease with a palpable plaque and curvature deformity of at least 30 degrees at the start of therapy.




Corporal rupture (penile fracture) was reported as an adverse reaction in 5 of 1044 (0.5%) XIAFLEX-treated patients in clinical studies. In other XIAFLEX-treated patients (9 of 1044; 0.9%), a combination of penile ecchymoses or hematoma, sudden penile detumescence, and/or a penile "popping" sound or sensation was reported, and in these cases, a diagnosis of corporal rupture cannot be excluded. Severe penile hematoma was also reported as an adverse reaction in 39 of 1044 (3.7%) XIAFLEX-treated patients.


Signs or symptoms that may reflect serious penile injury should be promptly evaluated to assess for corporal rupture or severe penile hematoma which may require surgical intervention.


Because of the risks of corporal rupture or other serious penile injury, XIAFLEX is available for the treatment of Peyronie's disease only through a restricted program under a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) called the XIAFLEX REMS Program.
