We are currently investigating a treatment for symptoms related to endometriosis and uterine fibroids—diseases that affect millions of women throughout the world. Both conditions are highly prevalent and are associated with a number of chronic complications.
Endometriosis is a painful disorder of the uterus that affects an estimated 176 million premenopausal women worldwide. We are working to help patients medically manage endometriosis and its often debilitating pain. As of February 2016, we have conducted the largest clinical trials in endometriosis to date, and continue to pursue a new treatment for the disease’s most common symptoms.
Uterine fibroids (also called leiomyomas or myomas) are noncancerous muscle tissue tumors of the uterus. Fibroids are most common in women aged 30-40 years and are associated with a number of painful symptoms. For women suffering from heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids, there are limited non-surgical treatments. We have several ongoing clinical studies evaluating the efficacy of a new treatment that helps manage the symptoms of uterine fibroids.
