Single-Dose Relative Bioavailability Study of SST-6006, a Topical Sildenafil Cream Versus Oral Sildenafil in Healthy Male Adults
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how a single dose of sildenafil cream (SST-6006) is absorbed and eliminated by the body, with and without the use of a condom, compared to a single oral sildenafil dose and to evaluate the safety of sildenafil cream.
