Vaginal Ring Provides “Radically New” Drug Delivery Platform for Health Issues, Including Infertility
Date:6/25/2013

Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

Fertility medications help women produce and release eggs and fortify the uterus to sustain a pregnancy, but the delivery method can be painful. Some women endure as many as 90 shots in one cycle of fertility treatment, including intramuscular injections of a thick progesterone compound that continue throughout the first trimester of pregnancy. Texas Fertility Center and Dr. Kaylen Silverberg recently published a research study that may offer patients significant relief.

The study http://www.fertstert.org/current found that pregnancy rates using a vaginal ring (similar to one currently used as a form of birth control) were not significantly different than those achieved with either progesterone vaginal gel or intramuscular injections. Study participants were evaluated by both cause and duration of infertility, with the primary study goal being to compare the effectiveness of two different delivery methods--vaginal gel and the vaginal ring--for the fertility drug progesterone.

“We were not surprised that women preferred the vaginal ring to intramuscular injections,” Dr. Silverberg said. “In addition to the convenience of administering medication once weekly versus daily shots or daily vaginal gel, combined with the comfort factor, this radically new drug delivery method will increase the effectiveness of progesterone and decrease side effects because it bypasses the normal breakdown that occurs in the liver or in the intestine.”

Dr. Silverberg recently traveled to Jerusalem, Israel to participate in an international advisory board meeting with ObGyns and fertility specialists from around the world at Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.’s global headquarters. Teva is the manufacturer of the Milprosa™ (Prog
