Acerus Announces Support of New Men’s Health Guidelines


TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Acerus Pharmaceuticals Corporation (TSX:ASP) is proud to announce its support of the distribution of the new Men’s Health Guidelines for Family Medicine. These Guidelines, developed by an independent body of family physicians, specialists, pharmacists and other health professionals, along with the Canadian Society for the Study of the Aging Male (CSSAM), are designed to meet the needs of family physicians managing common health issues confronting men over the age of 40.

The Guidelines, for a limited time, will be distributed free-of-charge to licensed family physicians across Canada. This unique Canadian guideline model is globally recognized, and will also be launched in the UK, with further editions being planned for Asia and the Caribbean. For more information, visit

“The impetus behind the development of the Men’s Health Guidelines for Family Medicine was an identified need for Canadian healthcare providers to learn more and provide them with the necessary tools to better treat their patients, including the 8 million Canadian men over 40 who are under their care,” said Dr. David Greenberg, MD and President, CSSAM. “These Guidelines address some conditions specific to men that other currently available resources do not.”

“June 12, 2017 is Men’s Health Week in Canada, an opportunity for healthcare providers to raise awareness of preventable health problems, and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men,” said Tom Rossi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Acerus Pharma. “We are thrilled to provide these evidence-based Guidelines to Canadian family physicians, in partnership with the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation, as this is an important part of our commitment to advancing men’s health.”
