Company Holds Meeting with FDA to Discuss Oral Proellex® in the Treatment of Uterine Fibroids
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.® (Nasdaq:RPRX) today announced that the Company held a meeting with the FDA to discuss the progress and next steps in the development of Proellex® (telapristone acetate) for the treatment of uterine fibroids. Shortly before the meeting, the Company was notified that the meeting would be a type C/Guidance meeting, rather than a type B/End of phase 2 meeting as previously anticipated. At the meeting, the FDA confirmed that Proellex® will continue on the current partial clinical hold while they consult with liver experts within the FDA regarding previously disclosed effects on the liver. Further, the FDA agreed to accept additional information from the Company and its panel of liver experts for consideration by the FDA’s internal advisory liver team. The Company expects to submit the additional information and a proposed clinical protocol within a month. The Company intends to announce further information following receipt of additional guidance from the FDA.
Larry Dillaha, M.D., the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The Company is pleased with the guidance received from the FDA, and while we remain on the current partial clinical hold as the FDA internally reviews our data related to the effect of Proellex® on the liver, we will proceed with our development plans by submitting additional phase 2 protocols to the FDA for their review. We are committed to working closely with the FDA as we further our development program for Proellex®.”
