Uterine fibroids Understanding
Uterine fibroids: Overview
Uterine fibroids are benign (not cancer) growths that develop from the muscle tissue of the uterus. They also are called leiomyomas or myomas. The size, shape, and location of fibroids can vary greatly. They may be inside the uterus, on its outer surface or within its wall, or attached to it by a stem-like structure. A woman may have only one fibroid or many of varying sizes. A fibroid may remain very small for a long time and suddenly grow rapidly, or grow slowly over a number of years. Fibroids are most common in women aged 3040 years, but they can occur at any age. Fibroids occur more often in African American women than in white women. They also seem to occur at a younger age and grow more quickly in African American women
Fibroids may have the following symptoms:
Changes in menstruation
Longer, more frequent, or heavy menstrual periods
Menstrual pain (cramps)
Vaginal bleeding at times other than menstruation
Anemia (from blood loss)
In the abdomen or lower back (often dull, heavy and aching, but may be sharp)
Difficulty urinating or frequent urination
Constipation, rectal pain, or difficult bowel movements
Enlarged uterus and abdomen
Fibroids also may cause no symptoms at all. Fibroids may be found during a routine pelvic exam or during tests for other problems
The first signs of fibroids may be detected during a routine pelvic exam. A number of tests may show more information about fibroids:
Ultrasonography uses sound waves to create a picture of the uterus and other pelvic organs.
Hysteroscopy uses a slender device (the hysteroscope) to see the inside of the uterus. It is inserted through the vagina and cervix (opening of the uterus). This lets your health care professional see fibroids inside the uterine cavity.
Hysterosalpingography is a special X-ray test. It may detect abnormal changes in the size and shape of the uterus and fallopian tubes.
Sonohysterography is a test in which fluid is put into the uterus through the cervix. Ultrasonography is then used to show the inside of the uterus. The fluid provides a clear picture of the uterine lining.
Laparoscopy uses a slender device (the laparoscope) to help your health care professional see the inside of the abdomen. It is inserted through a small cut just below or through the navel. Fibroids on the outside of the uterus can be seen with the laparoscope.
Drug therapy is an option for some women with fibroids. Medications may reduce the heavy bleeding and painful periods that fibroids sometimes cause. They may not prevent the growth of fibroids. Surgery often is needed later. Drug treatment for fibroids includes the following options:
Birth control pills and other types of hormonal birth control methodsThese drugs often are used to control heavy bleeding and painful periods.
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonistsThese drugs stop the menstrual cycle and can shrink fibroids. They sometimes are used before surgery to reduce the risk of bleeding. Because GnRH agonists have many side effects, they are used only for short periods (less than 6 months). After a woman stops taking a GnRH agonist, her fibroids usually return to their previous size.
Progestinreleasing intrauterine device (IUD)This option is for women with fibroids that do not distort the inside of the uterus. It reduces heavy and painful bleeding but does not treat the fibroids themselves.
Uterine fibroids Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Uterine fibroids report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Uterine fibroids Emerging Drugs
Linzagolix: Kissei Pharmaceutical
Linzagolix is a novel, orally administered GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) receptor antagonist. Linzagolix acts by binding to and blocking the GnRH receptor in the pituitary gland, ultimately reducing estrogen production by the ovaries. It is currently in phase III stage of development.
Relugolix: Myovant Sciences
Relugolix is a small molecule, gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist, and an oral investigational drug candidate for the treatment of uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and advanced prostate cancer. As a GnRH receptor antagonist, relugolix binds to and blocks the GnRH receptor (GnRHR) in the anterior pituitary gland.Blocking GnRH receptors decreases the release of gonadotropins luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) thereby decreasing the downstream production of estrogen and progesterone by the ovaries in women and testosterone by the testes in men.
Fezolinetant is being investigated as a superior option to gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) products as fezolinetant reduces levels of the ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone, but in a non-castrating manner, as would be required for the safe, effective, chronic treatment of uterine fibroids and endometriosis. It is in phase II stage of development.

The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Uterine fibroids R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Uterine fibroids.
In December 2019, Kissei Pharmaceutical announced that ObsEva SA reported positive 24-week results from the PRIMROSE 2 phase-III clinical trial of linzagolix for the treatment of uterine fibroids.
Vilaprisan (BAY1002670) is an investigational therapy by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals that may no longer be in development to treat endometriosis and uterine fibroids. The company announced in December 2018 that it was halting trials of vilaprisan after long-term toxicology studies in rodents indicated a potential problem.
In June 2020, Myovant Sciences announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its once-daily relugolix combination tablet (relugolix 40 mg, estradiol 1.0 mg, and norethindrone acetate 0.5 mg) for the treatment of women with heavy menstrual bleeding associated with uterine fibroids.
