Repros Requests Meeting With FDA to Discuss Phase 3 Requirements for Proellex(R) in the Treatment of Endometriosis

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 19, 2016 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.® (RPRX) today announced it has requested a meeting to discuss Phase 3 requirements for the development of Proellex® (telapristone acetate) for the treatment of endometriosis. The Company anticipates a meeting will be scheduled during the first half of 2017.

In previous studies of women with severe endometriosis, Proellex® not only significantly reduced pelvic abdominal pain associated with menses, the primary pain associated with endometriosis, it also reduced the need for analgesics compared to placebo. In a recently completed Phase 2 study, final results showed a 55% reduction in total pill count of non-prescription and prescription analgesics in the Proellex®-treated arms, while placebo-treated subjects only experienced a reduction of 30% (p = 0.0619). This is encouraging given the small size of the study, 43 on either 6 or 12 mg Proellex® and 17 on placebo.

The Company has previously requested a meeting with the FDA to discuss Phase 3 requirements for the use of Proellex® in the treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids.
