Myovant Sciences’ lead product candidate is relugolix, an oral, once-a day small molecule that acts as a GnRH receptor antagonist. The company has three clinical programs for relugolix consisting of five international Phase 3 clinical trials, two in women with heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids (LIBERTY 1 & 2), two in women with endometriosis-associated pain (SPIRIT 1 & 2), and one in men with advanced prostate cancer (HERO). Positive results have been announced in all five trials. Two New Drug Applications have been submitted to the FDA, including one for relugolix for men with advanced prostate cancer in April 2020 and one for relugolix combination tablet for women with heavy menstrual bleeding and uterine fibroids in May 2020. In August, Myovant announced that its NDA for once-daily, oral relugolix combination tablet for the treatment of women with heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids had been accepted for review by the FDA. The FDA has set a target action date of June 1, 2021 under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA). A third NDA is expected to be filled for relugolix combination tablet for women with pain associated with endometriosis.
In anticipation of FDA approval, Myovant is preparing for inaugural commercial launches in the U.S. of two distinctly branded products, relugolix combination tablet for women with heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids and pain associated with endometriosis and relugolix monotherapy tablet for men with advanced prostate cancer.
