Veru Completes Enrollment for Second Part of Phase 1/2  VERU-111 Trial
Veru has completed enrollment for the second portion of a Phase 1/2 study of VERU-111, its investigational therapy for men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who failed to respond to treatment with a new androgen receptor inhibitor.

All study participants have mCRPC that has grown resistant to at least one form of hormone therapy, such as Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) or Xtandi (enzalutamide), but who have not yet begun intravenous (into-the-vein) chemotherapy.

Men enrolled in the trial will receive 63 mg of VERU-111 per day, which was
