Richter Submits EMA Application for RYEQO
Hungarian pharmaceutical company Gedeon Richter yesterday said it submitted an application to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for its drug RYEQO for the treatment of endometriosis, according to an announcement on the website of the Budapest Stock Exchange.
The EMA cleared RYEQO in July 2021 for the treatment of uterine fibroids.
RYEQO contains 40 mg 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 0.5 mg norethisterone acetate, a progestin that is necessary when women with a uterus take estrogen.
Richter's RYEQO sales came to EUR 1.8 million in H1 2022, according to the company's latest earnings report.
