  • Sexual satisfaction [ Time Frame: 20 Weeks ]
    Sexual satisfaction will be evaluated based on a global satisfaction assessment comparing the 4-week establishment period with the 8 week DB treatment period. In addition there is a 8 week run in period between the establishment period and the double blind treatment period for a total treatment period of 20 weeks.
  • Sexual desire and arousal [ Time Frame: 20 Weeks ]
    Sexual desire and arousal will be evaluated based on the 'desire' and 'arousal' domains of the Sexual Anamnesis Questionnaire, the Sexual Function questionnaire and weekly diaries throughout the course of the study.
  • Sexual motivation and inhibition [ Time Frame: 20 weeks ]
    Sexual motivation and inhibition will be assessed using the Sexual Motivation Questionnaire and comparing sexual motivation and inhibition between the 4-week establishment period and the 8-week DB treatment period. In addition there is a 8 week run in period between the establishment period and the double blind treatment period for a total treatment period of 20 weeks.
  • Safety and toleration [ Time Frame: 20 weeks ]
    Safety will be evaluated by: 1) AEs [Number of patients reporting AEs, number of patients reporting drug related AEs] 2)SAE [Number of patients reporting SAEs, number of patients reporting drug related SAEs]and 3) Changes in laboratory safety data [Number of patients reporting abnormal lab safety data, number of patients reporting drug related abnormal lab safety data]. These will be evaluated throughout the course of the study.

Lybridos in Pre- and Postmenopausal Women With Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder Due to Maladaptive Activation of Sexual Inhibitory Systems
A Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Dose-finding Study to Investigate the Safety and Efficacy of Lybridos in the Domestic Setting in Healthy Female Subjects With Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder and Maladaptive Activity of Sexual Inhibitory Mechanisms

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, dose-finding study to investigate the safety and efficacy of Lybridos in the domestic setting in healthy female subjects with hypoactive sexual desire disorder and maladaptive activity of sexual inhibitory mechanisms.

In the present study, the efficacy of Lybridos will be evaluated in the domestic setting in healthy female subjects with HSDD and maladaptive activity of sexual inhibitory mechanism(s). Sexual satisfaction and other aspects of sexual functioning will be measured within 24 hours after each sexual activity. The following hypotheses will be tested:

Lybridos, as compared to placebo, will significantly increase the number of satisfying sexual events.

The number of satisfying sexual events will not differ significantly between subjects treated with placebo and subjects treated with 0.5 mg testosterone alone and/or 10 mg buspirone alone.

Lybridos, as compared to placebo, will significantly increase sexual desire/arousal.

Sexual desire/arousal will not differ significantly between subjects treated with placebo and subjects treated with 0.5 mg testosterone alone and/or 10 mg buspirone alone.

Lybridos, as compared to testosterone alone and buspirone alone, will significantly increase the number of satisfying sexual events and sexual desire/arousal.

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects must meet all of the following criteria:

  1. Provision of written informed consent
  2. Females between 21 and 70 years of age, inclusive, pre- or postmenopausal, with HSDD (comorbidity with female sexual arousal disorder [FSAD] and/or female orgasmic disorder [FOD; only as secondary diagnosis] is allowed). The diagnosis of HSDD will be established by a trained health care professional.
  3. Maladaptive activity of sexual inhibitory mechanism(s) (see appendix 5 for definition)
  4. Be involved in a stable relationship and have a partner who will be accessible for the majority of the study duration
  5. Healthy with normal medical history, physical examination, laboratory values, and vital signs; exceptions may be made if the investigator considers an abnormality to be clinically irrelevant
