Avodart Phase 3 trials end this month?


#1

Does anyone else remember reading a post on the old forum that the 6 month phase 3 trials of Avodart were ending this month ? I wonder what happened with the trial ?

I believe that the company decided to drop dutasteride as a hair loss drug, probably feeling that Propecia was not the blockbuster drug they thought it would be and not wanting to spend the money on marketing and trying to break in and grab market share from Merck (Propecia). Just not that much market share to grab, if you know what I mean.
