Agile Therapeutics Achieves Phase 2 Study Endpoints in Key Clinical Trials with New, Innovative Low-Dose Contraceptive Patch
Date:9/3/2008

1,000 women of reproductive age highlight that more than 30 percent of women are not satisfied with their current contraceptive methods. In addition, the vast majority of these women found Agile's low-dose contraceptive patch appealing and over 50 percent would talk with their doctors about using it. Agile's low-dose contraceptive patch is expected to fill a sizeable need in the $6 billion global ($2.5 billion U.S.) hormonal contraceptive market.

About Estrogen

Estrogen is associated with certain common side effects, such as breast tenderness, bloating/weight gain and nausea. These side effects are believed to be related to the level of hormones delivered into the blood stream, particularly with higher levels of estrogen. In some rare cases, high estrogen levels are thought to be linked with serious, cardiovascular side effects in some women. Therefore, low doses of estrogen in hormonal contraception are desired.

According to FDA labeling, women using Ortho EVRA(R) are exposed to about 60 percent more estrogen than if they were using typical birth control pills. Increased levels of estrogen may increase the risk of blood clots, which lead the FDA to add precautions to Ortho EVRA's label.
