Beyond Hormone Therapy: Signs Of Life In Pipeline For Menopausal Women

This article was originally published in Pharmaceutical Approvals Monthly

Executive Summary

Conditions associated with menopause represent a huge market, yet the R&D pipeline has long been slim, despite the well-known drawbacks of marketed hormone replacement therapies. But new approaches with a tissue-selective estrogenic effect are emerging: Shionogi’s Osphena for menopause-related sexual dysfunction broke the long drought in NME approvals, and Pfizer’s broad NDA for bazedoxifene/conjugated estrogens is under review. Emerging companies like EndoCeutics are exploring new hormonal approaches.
