Ferring Pharmaceuticals to Share New Reproductive Medicine Data at ASRM 2020 Scientific Congress & Expo

  • Ferring will deliver 11 presentations at the virtual congress; including six oral presentations
  • The new data being presented further underscores Ferring's commitment to supporting personalized fertility options to help people build families worldwide

Ferring Pharmaceuticals (US) today announced that it will present eleven company-sponsored abstracts, including six oral presentations, at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2020 Virtual Scientific Congress & Expo taking place October 17-20, 2020.

"We look forward to presenting data at this year's ASRM congress, where leaders will gather virtually to share meaningful research that advances scientific knowledge in the field of reproductive medicine," said Gaurang Daftary, M.D., M.B.A, Vice President, Reproductive Medicine and Maternal Health at Ferring Pharmaceuticals. "At Ferring, we are committed to addressing the medical needs of patients through the advancement of science. Our presence at ASRM this year underscores that commitment."

Ferring's first oral presentation highlights data from a clinical trial involving infertile women with primary hypothalamic amenorrhea, a rare patient population that is unable to ovulate and achieve pregnancy due to deficiencies in their brain's production or secretion of a key peptide called Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH).

Additionally, the company will present three new sub analyses of data from the recently published MEGASET-HR trial. The first abstract characterizes differences in ovarian response dependent upon the type of gonadotropin used and baseline levels of anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH), a marker of ovarian reserve. The second presents a possible relationship between serum levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) at the end of stimulation and live birth. The third abstract from the MEGASET-HR trial describes outcomes from the transfer of fresh or frozen embryos designated as normal based on assessment of the number of chromosomes.

The details of all Ferring abstracts presented at the meeting are as follows:

Menopur® Indication

Menopur (menotropins for injection), administered subcutaneously, is indicated for the development of multiple follicles and pregnancy in ovulatory patients participating in an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) program.

Important Safety Information

Menopur is contraindicated in women who have: a high FSH level indicating primary ovarian failure, presence of uncontrolled non-gonadal endocrinopathies, tumors of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, sex hormone dependent tumors of the reproductive tract and accessory organs, abnormal uterine bleeding of undetermined origin, ovarian cysts or enlargement of undetermined origin, not due to polycystic ovary syndrome, or prior hypersensitivity to menotropins or MENOPUR. MENOPUR is not indicated in women who are pregnant and may cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman.

Menopur should only be used by physicians who are thoroughly familiar with infertility problems. Menopur is a potent gonadotropic substance capable of causing Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS), with or without pulmonary or vascular complications, in women undergoing therapy for infertility. Ovarian torsion has been reported after gonadotropin treatment. Serious pulmonary conditions and thromboembolic events have been reported with Menopur. There have been infrequent reports of ovarian neoplasms with Menopur. Multiple pregnancies, spontaneous abortion, congenital malformations and ectopic pregnancies have occurred following treatment with Menopur.

The most common adverse reactions (≥2%) in ART include: abdominal cramps; abdomen enlarged; abdominal pain; headache; injection site pain and reaction; injection site inflammation; OHSS.
