About

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of 10 mg and 25 mg doses of asoprisnil, compared to placebo, taken daily for 12 weeks, on uterine blood flow and the morphology of the endometrium and uterine fibroids.

Full description

No medical therapy is currently available for the long-term treatment of uterine fibroids. The objective of this study is to determine the effects of asoprisnil in uterine fibroid growth suppression. Full thickness biopsies obtained from surgical procedures will allow the assessment of asoprisnil's effects on the basalis, the myometrium, and on endometrial angiogenesis. Various other exploratory immunohistological and biochemical specimens will be collected to evaluate the mechanisms of action of asoprisnil in the endometrium, the myometrium, and in uterine fibroids.
