Further study details as provided by Agile Therapeutics:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparative evaluation of EE pharmacokinetics between AG200-15 and Ortho-Cyclen® [ Time Frame: 0,6,12,24,48,72,120,144,168 hours post patch; 0.5, 1,1.5,3,6,9,12,16&24 hours post Ortho-Cyclen dosing ]
    Log-transformed PK parameters (AUCs, Cmax and Css) will be analyzed with an analysis of variance (ANOVA) model.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of AG200-15 including study discontinuation information, changes in physical and GYN exam findings, changes in vital signs, body weight & lab results & all Adverse Events will be summarized [ Time Frame: Adverse Events will be collected from first dose through 30 days post-dosing ]
    Safety of AG200-15 over two consecutive cycles of therapy will be evaluated.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Ortho-Cyclen®
Drug: Ortho-Cyclen (r)
an oral contraceptive containing 35 µg of EE and 250 µg of norgestimate (NGM) in a 21 - 7 day regimen.
Other Name: oral contraceptive
Experimental: AG200-15
investigational transdermal contraceptive delivery system
Drug: AG200-15 containing LNG and EE
transdermal contraceptive delivery system delivering 100 - 120 mcg of LNG and 25 - 30 mcg EE
Other Name: transdermal contraception

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label study comprised of two parts. Part I is a single-arm, run-in cycle with AG200-15 administered to all subjects as a 21-7 day regimen (three consecutive weeks of patch wear followed by a patch-free week).

Part II employs crossover design with subjects randomly assigned to one of the two treatment sequences. Each sequence will include AG200-15 and oral contraceptive (Ortho-Cyclen®) as described below: Sequence 1: AG200-15 (Period 1) followed by oral contraceptive, Ortho-Cyclen® (Period 2); Sequence 2: Oral contraceptive, Ortho-Cyclen® (Period 1) followed by AG200-15 (Period 2) Both AG200-15 and Ortho-Cyclen® will be administered as 21-7 day regimen (three consecutive weeks of drug-taking followed by a drug-free week). Duration of each treatment Period is 28 days (one cycle of therapy).
