Wellesley Pharmaceuticals, LLC was founded to ensure that the ability of Nocturol™ to reduce and sometimes eliminate nocturia symptoms can be disseminated to help the hundreds of millions of people who can benefit from it. Nocturol is a drug to treat nocturia, the frequent need to urinate at night. This sometimes-deadly condition afflicts 2.4 billion people and causes insomnia, fatigue, depression, lower quality of life, higher rates of heart disease, stroke, long term brain damage, and deadly falls.
Huge unmet medical need – 2.4 billion people suffer from nocturia, which causes insomnia, fatigue, depression, lower quality of life, higher rates of heart disease, stroke, long term brain damage and deadly falls.
No viable competition – There is one FDA approved drug to treat nocturia and it demonstrated a 0.2 void/night benefit compared to the placebo. Our result was 4.5 times better than that. Their drug has a black box warning about the dangers of hyponatremia. We had zero side effects reported even among patients using 2 or 3 times the recommended dose.
Strong patent portfolio – Our patent lawyer had been named one of the top 1000 patent lawyers in the world six years in a row. Dr. Ping Wang has never had a patent even challenged, much less overturned. Our patents include doses ranging from 5mg (which is useless) to 2000mg (which could be deadly). We believe we have a huge wall of IP around our invention.
Instant efficacy – Our drug is to be taken 30 minutes before bedtime since it is effective in 30 minutes.
Lack of side effects – We are using about 20% of the recommended daily dose of the two component drugs for a 10-year-old child. If it is safe for a 10-year-old to take 5 times per day, we think it should be very safe for most adults to take once per night.
Superior efficacy – Compared to placebo, our clinical trial demonstrated 4.5 times higher efficacy than the only FDA approved drug for nocturia.
High profit margins – As an LLC, we pay no corporate income tax. As a virtual corporation, we have almost no overhead expenses. We have only one full time employee. We expect net income margins to approach 95% of revenue.
