Date:10/16/2009

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its annual assessment of companies making innovative contributions in healthcare, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Agile Therapeutics, Inc. (Agile) with the 2009 North American Pharmaceuticals & Biotechnology Healthcare Innovation of the Year Award for its outstanding achievements in drug development. Agile's lead product, AG200-15 with SKINFUSION(TM), offers great potential as a convenient contraceptive option. Not only does this once-per-week contraceptive patch offer maximized patient comfort, but it also provides a safe and effective method of birth control.

Of the estimated 62 million women of reproductive age in the United States, approximately 60 percent are currently using a contraceptive method to prevent pregnancy, according to the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). The Centers for Disease Control identifies oral contraceptives as the most popular form of birth control - used by an estimated 11.6 million American women. However, patient compliance is typically characterized as low for oral birth control pills with 19 to 47 percent of patients missing one or more pills per cycle.

"Missed doses result in decreased efficacy and may result in unwanted pregnancies," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Katheryn Symank. "One way to ensure proper patient use is through the use of contraceptives with less frequent or novel dosing, which highlights the strong market opportunity for contraceptives that increase patient convenience."

Agile's AG200-15 utilizes the company's proprietary transdermal drug delivery technology, SKINFUSION(TM), in an innovative low-dose contraceptive patch that administers the proven hormonal combination of levonorges
