Notes to the editors:
PregLem is a Swiss speciality biopharmaceutical company, dedicated to the development and commercialization of a new class of drugs for women’s reproductive health conditions. PregLem has an experienced senior management team, with a proven track record in developing, registering and commercializing reproductive health products. The company is backed by a blue chip investor base.
PregLem in-licensed ulipristal acetate from HRA Pharma to develop it for the treatment of uterine myoma (fibroids) in doses of 5 and 10 mg. HRA recently obtained a positive CHPM recommendation for approval of ulipristal acetate in emergency contraception, a significant step towards de-risking the registration of PregLem’s PGL4001 (see March 2009 press releases on www.hra.com and www.preglem.com).
