About Evofem Biosciences
Evofem Biosciences, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing innovative products to address unmet needs in women's sexual and reproductive health. Evofem Biosciences aims to advance the lives of women by developing novel solutions, such as woman-controlled contraception and potential protection from certain sexually transmitted infections. The Company is leveraging its proprietary Multipurpose Vaginal pH Regulator (MVP-R™) platform to develop Amphora® (L-lactic acid, citric acid and potassium bitartrate) for hormone-free birth control and prevention of chlamydia. For more information, please visit www.evofem.com.
Amphora is an investigational MVP-R™ designed to regulate vaginal pH within the normal range of 3.5 to 4.5. This maintains an acidic environment which is inhospitable to sperm as well as certain viral and bacterial pathogens associated with sexually transmitted infections but is integral to the survival of healthy bacteria in the vagina. Amphora met the pre-specified primary endpoint of the Phase 3 AMPOWER trial, demonstrated a favorable safety profile and was well tolerated. The Company plans to resubmit the Amphora New Drug Application (NDA) in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The Company expects to report top-line data in November 2019 from AMPREVENCE, the double-blinded placebo-controlled Phase 2b clinical trial of Amphora to prevent urogenital acquisition of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea (primary and secondary endpoints, respectively) in women. There are currently no therapeutics approved for the prevention of either STI.
Amphora® is a registered trademark and MVP-R™ is a trademark of Evofem Biosciences, Inc.
