Our Products & Pipeline
Clinical trials are fundamental to the development of innovative medicines and devices that treat and prevent illness. The success of clinical trials depends on the participation of volunteers. Participants in clinical trials gain access to new research treatments not yet available to the public while helping others by contributing to medical research.
If you are a patient looking for information about clinical trials, VIVUS posts information about ongoing clinical trials on a government-mandated web page at www.clinicaltrials.gov,, which is a National Institutes of Health registry of ongoing trials that are open and intended for patients with serious or life-threatening diseases. Registration of these trials in this registry is required by law.
Please contact us to learn more about how we work with dedicated and compassionate healthcare providers to identify and advance treatment options that address serious unmet medical needs.

Our product development pipeline
With demonstrated clinical development and commercialization expertise, VIVUS is dedicated to addressing the therapeutic needs of patients with serious medical conditions and life-limiting diseases. Our development pipeline is evolving as we advance new compounds through the clinic and to the market.
VI-0106, our lead pipeline program, is being developed to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). We expect that VI-0106 will be the first in a series of exciting pipeline opportunities. We are identifying and pursuing additional molecules that have preliminary safety and efficacy data that may allow us to reduce our development risk and move more quickly toward the market.
We invite dedicated and compassionate healthcare providers to join our clinical community. Please contact us to learn more about how we work with healthcare providers to identify and advance treatment options that address serious unmet medical needs.
