Hungarian pharmaceutical company Gedeon Richter said the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive opinion recommending approval of its drug RYEQO for treatment of uterine fibroid symptoms, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The European Commission will review the CHMP recommendation and a final decision on the marketing authorization application is expected in about two months, clearing the way for sales of RYEQO in all states of the European Economic Area.
RYEQO contains 40mg relugolix, which reduces the amount of estrogen and other hormones produced by the ovaries, 1 mg estradiol, which may reduce the risk of bone loss, and 0.5mg norethisterone acetate, a progestin that is necessary when women with a uterus take estrogen.
