INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS SECTION.


17 PATIENT COUNSELING INFORMATION. See FDA-Approved Patient Labeling (17.4).. 17.1Vaginal Bleeding. Inform patients of the importance of reporting irregular vaginal bleeding to their doctor as soon as possible.. 17.2Common Adverse Reactions with Progesterone. Inform patients of the possible side effects of progesterone therapy such as headaches, breast tenderness, bloating, mood swings, irritability, and drowsiness.. 17.3Coadministration of Other Vaginal Products. Inform patients that ENDOMETRIN is not recommended for use with other vaginal products.. 17.4FDA-Approved Patient Labeling.

MECHANISM OF ACTION SECTION.


12.1 Mechanism of Action. Progesterone is naturally occurring steroid that is secreted by the ovary, placenta, and adrenal gland. In the presence of adequate estrogen, progesterone transforms proliferative endometrium into secretory endometrium. Progesterone is necessary to increase endometrial receptivity for implantation of an embryo. Once an embryo is implanted, progesterone acts to maintain pregnancy.

NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY SECTION.


13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY. 13.1Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility. Nonclinical toxicity studies to determine the potential of ENDOMETRIN to cause carcinogenicity or mutagenicity have not been performed. The effect of ENDOMETRIN on fertility has not been evaluated in animals.

NURSING MOTHERS SECTION.


8.3Nursing Mothers. Detectable amounts of progesterone have been identified in the milk of nursing mothers. The effect of this on the nursing infant has not been determined.

ADVERSE REACTIONS SECTION.


6 ADVERSE REACTIONS. The most common adverse reactions reported (greater than 2%) were post-oocyte retrieval pain, abdominal pain, nausea, and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.

13.1Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility. Nonclinical toxicity studies to determine the potential of ENDOMETRIN to cause carcinogenicity or mutagenicity have not been performed. The effect of ENDOMETRIN on fertility has not been evaluated in animals.

OVERDOSAGE SECTION.


10 OVERDOSAGE. Treatment of overdosage consists of discontinuation of ENDOMETRIN together with institution of appropriate symptomatic and supportive care.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY SECTION.


12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY. 12.1 Mechanism of Action. Progesterone is naturally occurring steroid that is secreted by the ovary, placenta, and adrenal gland. In the presence of adequate estrogen, progesterone transforms proliferative endometrium into secretory endometrium. Progesterone is necessary to increase endometrial receptivity for implantation of an embryo. Once an embryo is implanted, progesterone acts to maintain pregnancy.. 12.3 Pharmacokinetics. AbsorptionProgesterone serum concentrations increased following the administration of the ENDOMETRIN Vaginal Insert in 12 healthy pre-menopausal females. On single dosing, the mean Cmax was 17.0 ng/mL in the ENDOMETRIN twice daily group and 19.8 ng/mL in the ENDOMETRIN three times daily group. On multiple dosing, steady-state concentrations were attained within approximately day after initiation of treatment with ENDOMETRIN. Both ENDOMETRIN regimens provided average serum concentrations of progesterone exceeding 10 ng/mL on Day 5. The pharmacokinetic results are summarized in Table 2.Table 2: Mean (+-Standard Deviation) Serum Progesterone Pharmacokinetic ParametersPharmacokinetic Parameter (unit)ENDOMETRIN 100 mgtwice daily (N=6)ENDOMETRIN 100 mgthree times daily (N=6)Cmax Maximum progesterone serum concentration.Tmax Time to maximum progesterone serum concentration.Cavg Average progesterone serum concentration.AUC0-24 Area under the drug concentration versus time curve from 0-24 hours post dose.Cmin Minimum progesterone serum concentration.Single DosingCmax (ng/mL)17.0 +- 6.519.8 +- 7.2Tmax (hr)24.0 +- 0.017.3 +- 7.4AUC0-24 (nghr/mL)217 +- 113284 +- 143Day of Multiple DosingCmax (ng/mL)18.5 +- 5.524.1 +- 5.6Tmax (hr)18.0 +- 9.418.0 +- 9.4Cmin (ng/mL)8.9 +- 4.510.9 +- 6.7Cavg (ng/ml)14.0 +- 4.815.9 +- 4.3AUC0-24 (nghr/mL)327 +- 127436 +- 106. DistributionProgesterone is approximately 96% to 99% bound to serum proteins, primarily to serum albumin and corticosteroid binding globulin.. MetabolismProgesterone is metabolized primarily by the liver, largely to pregnanediols and pregnanolones. Pregnanediols and pregnanolones are conjugated in the liver to glucuronide and sulfate metabolites. Progesterone metabolites that are excreted in the bile may be deconjugated and may be further metabolized in the gut via reduction, dehydroxylation, and epimerization.. ExcretionProgesterone undergoes renal and biliary elimination. Following injection of labeled progesterone, 50-60% of the excretion of metabolites occurs via the kidney; approximately 10% occurs via the bile and feces. Overall recovery of the labeled material accounts for 70% of an administered dose. Only small portion of unchanged progesterone is excreted in the bile.

CLINICAL STUDIES SECTION.


14 CLINICAL STUDIES. 14.1Luteal Supplementation During Assisted Reproductive Treatment Study. randomized, open-label, active-controlled study evaluated the efficacy of 10 weeks of treatment with two different daily dosing regimens of ENDOMETRIN (100 mg twice daily and 100 mg three times daily) for support of implantation and early pregnancy in infertile women participating in an Assisted Reproductive Technology treatment program. Efficacy was assessed on the endpoint of ongoing pregnancies, defined as the presence of at least one fetal heartbeat seen on ultrasound at weeks post-embryo transfer. The study randomized to ENDOMETRIN 808 infertile women (74.9% White; 10.3% Hispanic, 5.4% Black, 5% Asian, and 4.6% Other) between 19 and 42 years of age (mean age 33) who had body mass index <34 kg/m2 at screening.The ongoing pregnancy rates for subjects treated with both dosing regimens of ENDOMETRIN were non-inferior (lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval of the difference between ENDOMETRIN and the active comparator excluded difference greater than 10%) to the ongoing pregnancy rate for subjects treated with the active comparator. The results of this study are shown in Table 3.Table 3: Ongoing Pregnancy RatesOngoing pregnancy defined as the presence of at least one fetal heartbeat seen on ultrasound at weeks post-embryo transfer. in Patients Receiving ENDOMETRIN for Luteal Supplementation and Early Pregnancy While in an Assisted Reproductive Technology Treatment ProgramENDOMETRIN100 mg twice dailyENDOMETRIN100 mg three times dailyNumber of subjects404404Ongoing pregnancy: (%)156 (39%)171 (42%)95% Confidence Interval of pregnancy rate[33.8, 43.6][37.5, 47.3]Pregnancy rate percentage difference between ENDOMETRIN and comparator-3.6%0.1%95% Confidence Interval for difference vs comparator[-10.3, 3.2][-6.7, 6.9]Subjects participating in the study were stratified at randomization by age and ovarian reserve (as measured by serum FSH levels).

In women age 35 and older and in women with serum FSH levels between 10 and 15 IU/L, the results with respect to ongoing pregnancy rates for both dosing regimens of ENDOMETRIN did not reach the criteria for non-inferiority.Subjects who became pregnant received study medication for total of 10 weeks. Patients over 34 kg/m2 were not studied. The efficacy of ENDOMETRIN in this patient group is unknown.

DRUG INTERACTIONS SECTION.


7 DRUG INTERACTIONS. No formal drug-drug interaction studies have been conducted for ENDOMETRIN. Drugs known to induce the hepatic cytochrome-P450-3A4 system (such as rifampin, carbamazepine) may increase the elimination of progesterone.The effect of concomitant vaginal products on the exposure of progesterone from ENDOMETRIN has not been assessed. ENDOMETRIN is not recommended for use with other vaginal products (such as antifungal products) as this may alter progesterone release and absorption from the vaginal insert [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3) ].
