Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the benefit of relugolix 40 milligrams (mg) once a day co-administered with estradiol (E2) 1 mg and norethindrone acetate (NETA) 0.5 mg compared with placebo for 24 weeks on heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Heavy Menstrual Bleeding Uterine Fibroid Drug: Relugolix Drug: Estradiol/norethindrone acetate Drug: Estradiol/norethindrone acetate placebo Drug: Relugolix placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This study is an international phase 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled efficacy and safety study to evaluate 24 weeks of oral daily relugolix 40 mg co-administered with low-dose E2 and NETA (Group A) and 12 weeks of daily oral relugolix 40 mg alone followed by 12 weeks of daily oral relugolix 40 mg co-administered with low-dose E2 and NETA (Group B) compared with 24 weeks of placebo (Group C).

All participants completing the Week 24 visit, including women randomized to placebo, were offered the opportunity to enroll in an open-label extension study in which all eligible participants will receive relugolix co-administered with low-dose E2 and NETA. Participants who did not enroll into the extension study had a follow-up visit approximately 30 days after the end of treatment (that is, after the participant's last dose of study medication).

Safety will be assessed throughout the study by monitoring adverse events, vital signs, physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests, 12-lead electrocardiograms, and assessments of bone mineral density.

    The Uterine Fibroid Symptom and Health-Related Quality of Life (UFS-QoL) Bleeding and Pelvic Discomfort (BPD) Scale has been derived from the UFS-QoL Symptoms Scale. The scale consists of the following 3 symptoms proximal to uterine fibroids: Heavy bleeding during your menstrual period (Question [Q] 1), passing blood clots during your menstrual period (Q2), and feeling tightness or pressure in your pelvic area (Q5). raw scores were transformed to a normalized score: Transformed Score = [(Actual raw score - lowest possible raw score)/(Possible raw score range)] * 100 Transformed score ranges from 0 to 100 based on Likert scale (None of time, a little of time, some of the time, most of the time and all of the time). Lower score indicates minimal symptom severity and higher score indicates maximum symptom severity.

  39. Number Of Participants With A ≥ 30% Reduction in NRS Score From Baseline to Last 35 Days of Treatment Who Had Maximum Pain Scores ≥ 4 At Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]

    Uterine fibroid-associated pain was assessed by a pain NRS. The pain NRS is a validated, single-item, self-reported measure, which asks respondents to rank their pain on an 11-point scale as follows: 0 (no pain), 1 to 3 (mild pain), 4 to 6 (moderate pain), and 7 to 10 (severe pain).

    As per the objective of the study, the pre-specified secondary efficacy analyses compared relugolix plus E2/NETA with placebo. Therefore, only relugolix plus E2/NETA and placebo arms are presented.


  40. Change From Baseline In Luteinizing Serum Concentration At Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    As per the objective of the study, the pre-specified secondary efficacy analyses compared relugolix plus E2/NETA with placebo. Therefore, only relugolix plus E2/NETA and placebo arms are presented.

  41. Change From Baseline In Follicle Stimulating Serum Concentration At Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    As per the objective of the study, the pre-specified secondary efficacy analyses compared relugolix plus E2/NETA with placebo. Therefore, only relugolix plus E2/NETA and placebo arms are presented.

  42. Change From Baseline In E2 Serum Concentration At Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    As per the objective of the study, the pre-specified secondary efficacy analyses compared relugolix plus E2/NETA with placebo. Therefore, only relugolix plus E2/NETA and placebo arms are presented.

  43. Change From Baseline In Progesterone Serum Concentration At Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    As per the objective of the study, the pre-specified secondary efficacy analyses compared relugolix plus E2/NETA with placebo. Therefore, only relugolix plus E2/NETA and placebo arms are presented.

Criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Premenopausal female aged 18 to 50 years old (inclusive) on the day of signing and dating the informed consent form.
  2. Has regularly occurring menstrual periods of ≤ 14 days duration with a cycle of 21 to 38 days from the start of 1 menstrual period until the start of the next, by participant history for at least 3 months prior to the first screening visit.
  3. Has a diagnosis of uterine fibroids that is confirmed by a transvaginal and/or transabdominal ultrasound performed during the screening period.
  4. Has heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids as evidenced by an MBL of ≥ 160 milliliter (mL) during 1 cycle or ≥ 80 mL per cycle for 2 menstrual cycles as measured by the alkaline hematin method during the screening period.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Has transvaginal and/or transabdominal ultrasound during the screening period demonstrating pathology other than uterine fibroids that could be responsible for or contributing to the patient's heavy menstrual bleeding.
  2. Has known rapidly enlarging uterine fibroids in the opinion of the investigator.
  3. Has a weight that exceeds the weight limit of the DXA scanner or has a condition that precludes an adequate DXA measurement at the lumbar spine and proximal femur.
  4. Has a history of or currently has osteoporosis, or other metabolic bone disease, hyperparathyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, hyperthyroidism, anorexia nervosa, or low traumatic (from the standing position) or atraumatic fracture (toe, finger, skull, face and ankle fractures are allowed). A history of successfully treated hyperparathyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, or hyperthyroidism is allowed if the participant's bone mineral density is within normal limits.
  5. Has a history of the use of bisphosphonates, calcitonin, calcitriol, ipriflavone, teriparatide, denosumab, or any medication other than calcium and vitamin D preparations to treat bone mineral density loss.
  6. Has been a participant in an investigational drug or device study within the 1 month prior to the first screening visit.
