(NYSE MKT: TXMD), an innovative women’s healthcare company, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office allowed patent application 14/136,048 related to TX-004HR, the company’s phase 3 drug candidate for the treatment of vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA), which utilizes the company’s SYMBODA™ technology.
