About

This clinical trial is performed as proof of pharmacological action investigation by demonstration of ovulation inhibition (dose-response study) under treatment with three Test vaginal rings releasing varying doses of estriol (E3) and trimegestone (TMG). Blood samples for determination of estradiol (E2) and progesterone (PG) levels will serve as pharmacodynamic surrogate parameters for characterization of the treatment effect on the endogenous hormones. Blood samples for determination of E3 and TMG in plasma will be collected in order to characterize pharmacokinetic parameters. Additionally, local tolerability characterized by gynecological inspection of the vaginal mucosa prior to and after insertion of the Investigational Medicinal Product (IMPs) is planned to be assessed

Full description

The IMPs, releasing either 0.400 mg E3 and 0.06 mg TMG, or 0.300 mg E3 and 0.12 mg TMG, or 0.200 mg E3 and 0.18 mg TMG per 24 h, will be applied intravaginally and remain in the vagina for the subsequent 21 days (single dose, 1 treatment cycle). A total of 36 female subjects, 12 per treatment group, are intended to be randomized. Blood samples for determination of E2 and PG levels will be collected during treatment and until 20 days after removal of the ring. Blood samples for determination of E3 and TMG in plasma will be collected over the treatment period and until 48 h after removal of the ring. Bleeding intensity will also be documented during treatment and until 20 days after removal of the vaginal ring in a diary to characterize the effects of the different treatments.
