FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TherapeuticsMD Announces FDA Approval of TX-001HR: BIJUVA™ (Estradiol and Progesterone) Capsules for the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Vasomotor Symptoms Due to Menopause
- BIJUVA is the first and only FDA-approved hormone therapy of bio-identical estradiol in combination with bio-identical progesterone –
- BIJUVA is expected to be available in pharmacies in the second quarter of 2019 –
- TherapeuticsMD will host a conference call on Monday, October 29th at 8:30 A.M. ET-
BOCA RATON, Fla. — October 29, 2018 — TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (NASDAQ: TXMD), an innovative women’s healthcare company, today announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved BIJUVA™ (estradiol and progesterone) capsules, 1 mg/100 mg, the first and only FDA-approved bio-identical* hormone therapy combination of estradiol and progesterone in a single, oral capsule for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (commonly known as hot flashes or flushes) due to menopause in women with a uterus.
“The approval of BIJUVA represents an important and new opportunity for menopausal women suffering from moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms. Menopausal women and their healthcare providers have been seeking bio-identical combination therapies for many years without an FDA-approved option,” said Dr. Brian Bernick, Co-Founder and Director of TherapeuticsMD. “BIJUVA is the first and only FDA-approved combination of bio-identical hormones, offering a proven balance of bio-identical estradiol to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes combined with bio-identical progesterone to reduce the risks to the endometrium.”
“This is an important milestone for TherapeuticsMD as we continue to build towards offering a full portfolio of products to women at all stages of their lives,” said Robert Finizio, TherapeuticsMD CEO and Co-Founder. “BIJUVA addresses a significant demand for bio-identical hormone therapy and provides women, their healthcare providers and pharmacists with a proven bio-identical combination product that can be covered by their insurance.”
The approval is based on the BIJUVA clinical development program that included the pivotal Phase III Replenish Trial. This trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of BIJUVA in generally healthy, postmenopausal women with a uterus for the treatment of moderate to severe hot flashes. Consistent with FDA guidance, the co-primary efficacy endpoints in the Replenish Trial were the change from baseline in the number and severity of hot flashes at weeks 4 and 12 as compared to placebo. The primary safety endpoint was the incidence of endometrial hyperplasia with up to 12 months of treatment. BIJUVA demonstrated a statistically significant reduction from baseline in both the frequency and severity of hot flashes compared to placebo while reducing the risks to the endometrium. The most common adverse reactions (≥3 percent) were breast tenderness, headache, vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge and pelvic pain. Additionally, there were no clinically significant changes in lipid, coagulation or glucose parameters as compared to placebo. There were no unexpected safety signals. The results of the trial were published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.2 Important safety information, including the BOXED WARNING, for BIJUVA is provided below. The BIJUVA full prescribing information may be viewed by visiting www.BIJUVA.com.
“For the first time, we have a combination hormone therapy of bio-identical estradiol with bio-identical progesterone evaluated in a large, well-controlled, randomized clinical trial that has demonstrated both safety and efficacy for the treatment of moderate to severe hot flashes due to menopause,” said Dr. James Liu, M.D., President of the North American Menopause Society and Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UH Cleveland Medical Center. “The approval of BIJUVA represents an important, novel and effective treatment option for women and their healthcare providers to manage the vasomotor symptoms of menopause.”
“The approval of BIJUVA finally supports the science of combination bio-identical estradiol and progesterone,” said Kelly S. Selby, R.Ph., FIACP, pharmacist and compounding pharmacy owner. “Compounding pharmacists have been supporting women and their healthcare providers who request bio-identical hormone therapy for years and look forward to having BIJUVA as a commercially available option that is covered by insurance.”
TherapeuticsMD expects that BIJUVA will be available in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2019.

About Menopause and Vasomotor Symptoms (VMS)
Menopause is a natural life-stage transition for women that usually occurs at an average onset of 51 years of age.3 According to the United States Census Bureau, approximately 43 million women in the U.S. are of menopausal age (45-64 years) and women will spend greater than a third of their life in menopause with its associated morbidities.4
As the ovaries stop producing hormones, levels of circulating estrogen decrease, often causing vasomotor symptoms (VMS) (commonly known as hot flashes or flushes), as well as sleep and mood disturbances and genitourinary problems. Hot flashes (including night sweats) are the most common symptoms, occurring in up to 80 percent of women, and can be debilitating and last years after menopause.5 Despite living with these troublesome symptoms, many women do not seek treatment.
BIJUVA is a novel combination of bio-identical estradiol and bio-identical progesterone approved for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms associated with menopause in women with a uterus in a once daily softgel capsule taken orally. Bio-identical refers to estradiol and progesterone that are molecularly identical to the hormones circulating naturally in the woman’s body. There is no evidence that bio-identical hormones are safer or more effective than synthetic hormones. BIJUVA is the first and only bio-identical estradiol and bio-identical progesterone product offering women an alternative to the available FDA-approved synthetic (non-bio-identical) hormones, the separate FDA-approved bio-identical estrogen and progesterone products that are used together but are not approved for combination use, and the unapproved compounded bio-identical hormone products. An estimated total of 15 to 20 million annual prescriptions of both the separate FDA-approved and compounded bio-identical estrogen and progesterone products are filled annually in the US.6 The full prescribing information for BIJUVA may be viewed by visiting www.BIJUVA.com.
* “Bio-identical” refers to estradiol and progesterone that are molecularly identical to the hormones produced naturally in the woman’s body. There is no evidence that bio-identical hormones are safer or more effective than synthetic hormones.
BIJUVA is a combination of an estrogen and progesterone indicated in a woman with a uterus for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms due to menopause.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING: CARDIOVASCULAR DISORDERS, BREAST CANCER, ENDOMETRIAL CANCER, AND PROBABLE DEMENTIA
See full prescribing information for complete boxed warning.
Estrogen Plus Progestin Therapy
· Estrogen plus progestin therapy should not be used for the prevention of cardiovascular disease or dementia
· The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) estrogen plus progestin substudy reported increased risks of stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and myocardial infarction (MI)
· The WHI estrogen plus progestin substudy reported increased risks of invasive breast cancer
· The WHI Memory Study (WHIMS) estrogen plus progestin ancillary study of WHI reported an increased risk of probable dementia in postmenopausal women 65 years of age of older
· There is an increased risk of endometrial cancer in a woman with a uterus who uses unopposed estrogens
· Estrogen-alone therapy should not be used for the prevention of cardiovascular disease or dementia
· The WHI estrogen-alone substudy reported increased risks of stroke and DVT
· The WHIMS estrogen-alone ancillary study of WHI reported an increased risk of probable dementia in postmenopausal women 65 years of age or older
|·||BIJUVA is contraindicated in women with any of the following conditions: Undiagnosed abnormal genital bleeding; Known, suspected, or history of cancer of the breast; Known or suspected estrogen-dependent neoplasia; Active DVT, PE, or history of these conditions; Active arterial thromboembolic disease (for example, stroke, MI), or a history of these conditions; Known anaphylactic reaction, angioedema, or hypersensitivity to BIJUVA or any of its ingredients; Known liver impairment or disease; Known protein C, protein S, or antithrombin deficiency, or other known thrombophilic disorders.|
WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
|·||An increased risk of PE, DVT, stroke, and MI has been reported with estrogen plus progestin therapy. Should these occur or be suspected, therapy should be discontinued immediately. Risk factors for arterial vascular disease and/or venous thromboembolism (VTE) should be managed appropriately.|
|·||The WHI substudy of daily estrogen plus progestin after a mean follow-up of 5.6 years reported an increased risk of invasive breast cancer. Observational studies have also reported an increased risk of breast cancer for estrogen plus progestin therapy after several years of use. The risk increased with duration of use an appeared to return to baseline over about 5 years after stopping treatment (only the observational studies have substantial data on risk after stopping). The use of estrogen plus progestin therapy has been reported to result in an increase in abnormal mammograms requiring further evaluation.|
|·||Endometrial hyperplasia (a possible precursor to endometrial cancer) has been reported to occur at a rate of approximately less than one percent with BIJUVA. Clinical surveillance of all women using estrogen plus progestin therapy is important. Adequate diagnostic measures should be undertaken to rule out malignancy in postmenopausal women with undiagnosed persistent or recurring abnormal genital bleeding.|
|·||The WHI estrogen plus progestin substudy reported a statistically non-significant increased risk of ovarian cancer. A meta-analysis of 17 prospective and 35 retrospective epidemiology studies found that women who used hormonal therapy for menopausal symptoms had an increased risk for ovarian cancer. The exact duration of hormone therapy use associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer, however, is unknown.|
|·||In the WHIMS ancillary studies of postmenopausal women 65 to 79 years of age, there was an increased risk of developing probable dementia in women receiving estrogen plus progestin when compared to placebo. It is unknown whether these findings apply to younger postmenopausal women.|
|·||Estrogens increase the risk of gallbladder disease.|
|·||Discontinue estrogen if severe hypercalcemia, loss of vision, severe hypertriglyceridemia, or cholestatic jaundice occurs.|
|·||Monitor thyroid function in women on thyroid replacement hormone therapy.|
The most common adverse reactions (≥3%) for BIJUVA are breast tenderness (10.4%), headache (3.4%), vaginal bleeding (3.4%), vaginal discharge (3.4%), and pelvic pain (3.1%).

5 BIJUVA Product Development Rationale ▪ 2002 Post Women’s Health Initiative, women and healthcare providers shifted to compounded b io - identical hormone therapy containing estradiol and progesterone as an alternative despite being unapproved drugs that are not covered by insurance ― Over 90M+ scripts of synthetic hormone therapy prescribed annually before 2002, declining to ~ 26 M in 2015 1 » Until BIJUVA, patients had a choice between three therapies: • FDA - approved, synthetic combination hormones • FDA - approved, separate bio - identical hormone products not approved to be used together • Unapproved, compounded bio - identical hormones that have not been proven safe and effective and are not covered by insurance ▪ Compounding filled the need for bio - identical hormone replacement therapy ― 30M scripts (3M women) of compounded bio - identical hormone therapy prescribed annually in the U.S. currently 2,3 1) Symphony Health Solutions PHAST Data powered by IDV; Annual 2015 2) The reported number of annual custom compounded hormone therapy prescription of oral and transdermal estradiol and progesterones taken combined and in combination (26MM to 33MM) 3) Pinkerton, J.V. 2015.
