Ferring Pharmaceuticals acquires global rights to MILPROSA (progesterone vaginal ring)

Saint-Prex, Switzerland – September 28, 2015 –

Ferring Pharmaceuticals announced today that it has acquired the global rights to MILPROSATM (progesterone vaginal ring) from Teva Women’s Health, Inc. MILPROSA has the potential to be the first once-weekly progesterone treatment for luteal phase support in women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatment if approved by regulatory authorities in the United States.

MILPROSA is a soft, flexible silicone-based vaginal ring designed to deliver a daily 11 mg dose of progesterone over the course of one week.1

“Ferring is a leader in infertility and MILPROSA, if approved, would enhance our broad treatment portfolio in this area. Equally important to Ferring is that MILPROSA would offer a weekly treatment regimen for patients and a new treatment option for doctors,” said Michel Pettigrew, President of the Ferring Executive Board and COO.
