This is a multicentre, Phase III, efficacy and safety open-label study with PGL4001 10mg once daily for 3 months, blinded towards the administration of progestin or placebo after end of PGL4001 treatment.

Condition Intervention Phase
Uterine Fibroids Drug: PGL4001, placebo Drug: PGL4001, progestin Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III, Multicentre, Clinical Study Investigating the Efficacy and Safety of 3-months Open-label Treatment With PGL4001, Followed by a Randomised, Double-blind Placebo Controlled Period of 10 Days Treatment With Progestin, in Subjects With Myomas and Heavy Uterine Bleeding.

Further study details as provided by PregLem SA:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy endpoints [ Time Frame: From baseline to end of PGL4001 treatment (3months treatment) and to approximately 2 weeks after double blind treatment with progestin/placebo. ]
    Investigate efficacy of PGL4001 on uterine bleeding (% of subjects in amenorrhea at end of PGL4001 treatment), myoma size (transvaginal ultrasound), pain (short Mc Gill questionnaire) and quality of life (specific UFS-QoL questionnaire and general EQ-5D questionnaire).

  • Number and proportion of subjects experiencing open label treatment-emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: From baseline to end of PGL4001 treatment (3months treatment) ]
