Innovus Pharma Announces the Availability of Androferti in the U.S.

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2016) - Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Innovus Pharma") (OTCQB: INNV), an emerging commercial stage pharmaceutical company that delivers safe, innovative and effective over-the-counter medicine and consumer care products to improve men and women's health and respiratory diseases, has announced today the availability of its male fertility supplement Androferti® in the U.S.

The launch was preceded by the formation of a top Clinical Advisory Board formed by the top in-vitro fertilization ("IVF") specialists in the U.S. The Clinical Advisory was led by Dr. Fady Sharara, one of the top infertility doctors in the U.S. who was voted one of the Top Doctors in Infertility by the Washington Post Magazine, Washingtonian Magazine, and Northern Virginia Magazine, among others. "Androferti® is step forward in the fight against male infertility and a great clinically proven supplement to help increase the success of conception of patients in the U.S.," said Dr. Sharara.

"We are very excited to launch such a strong and clinically proven product in the U.S. to help patients in their quest for a higher conception success," said Dr. Bassam Damaj, President and Chief Executive Officer of Innovus.

"According to reports by IBIS World in August 2014, the fertility market is estimated to be around $2 billion with a 2.5% yearly increase. With only 682 In-Vitro Fertility clinics in the U.S., we should be able to reach most of these clinics within a relatively short period of time. The Company anticipates millions of dollars in sales annually upon and if reaching full market penetration," continued Dr. Damaj.

Androferti® will be available directly to IVF clinics and online at www.myandroferti.com at a price of $85 per box, which is sufficient for a one month supply. For optimal results from the published clinical trials optimal results of Androferti® are observed with 3 months of continuous use.

Androferti®, has been shown in multiple published clinical trials to statistically increase seminal quality (concentration, motility, morphology and vitality) and enhance spermatozoa quality (decreases of vacuoles in the sperm nucleus, decreases DNA fragmentation, decreases the dynamics of sperm DNA fragmentation, and improvement on the inventory of mobile sperm ("REM")).

The Company believes that Androferti® is the only product clinically proven to increase the Sperm Quality and enhance Spermatozoa Quality as compared to other products where the claims are based primarily on an ingredient used in the products.
