New Data Reveal Topical Divigel(R) (estradiol gel) 0.1% Significantly Reduces Frequency and Severity of Hot Flashes
Date:10/3/2007

Lowest Dose of Estradiol Shown to Be Safe and Effective for Menopausal

Women

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A study presented today at the 2007 Annual Meeting of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) revealed that Divigel(R) (estradiol gel) 0.1% significantly reduced the frequency and severity of moderate to severe hot flashes associated with menopause. Additional data presented at the meeting found that Divigel(R) is a safe and well-tolerated therapy offering the lowest approved dose of estradiol available for the treatment of hot flashes, the most common symptom of menopause.

"These data demonstrate that Divigel(R) is a safe and highly effective low dose therapy that quickly manages the uncomfortable side effects of menopause," said Dr. Ronald Ackerman, FACOG, CEO and principal investigator, Comprehensive Clinical Trials. "Women that have been reluctant to take older hormone therapies with higher doses of estrogen now have the choice of taking Divigel(R), the lowest dose of estradiol available."

Guidelines from the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) indicate that estrogen hormone therapy should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest amount of time.

"Divigel(R) is applied to the skin where it absorbs directly into the bloodstream without having to pass through the liver. This provides treatment continuity allowing women to use less estrogen than is needed in a pill because of the way the therapy is delivered," said Dr. Ackerman. "Transdermal therapies have been used in Europe for years, and they are becoming increasingly common in the United States. The availability of this lowest dose estrogen gel combined with its convenience makes Divigel(R) a valuable option for physicians and patients."

This 12-week study evaluated 488 postmenopausal women presenting with moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms. The study compared placebo to Divigel(R) at doses of 1
