Bayer Identifier:
First received: September 10, 2005
Last updated: July 14, 2011
Last verified: July 2011
The purpose of this study is to confirm the safety of SH T00658ID with regard to plasma lipids, hemostatic variables, and carbohydrate metabolism. In addition, the pharmacokinetic parameter following the long term administration of SH T00658ID will be assessed.

Condition Intervention Phase
Contraception Drug: EV/DNG (Qlaira, BAY86-5027, SH T00658K) Drug: SH D00264A (Triquilar) Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Single-center, Open-label, Controlled, Randomized Study to Investigate the Impact of a Sequential Oral Contraceptive (SH T00658ID) as Compared to a Sequential Oral Contraceptive Containing Ethinylestradiol and Levonorgestrel (SH D00264A) on Plasma Lipids, Hemostatic Variables, and Carbohydrate Metabolism in Healthy Female Volunteers Aged 18-50 Years Over 7 Treatment Cycles, Including the Pharmacokinetics

Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Impact on metabolic parameters (e.g. hemostatic parameters) after 6 month treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline, Cycle 7 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measurement of PK parameters [ Time Frame: Cycle 4, Cycle 7 ]

Enrollment: 58
