Ligand  - In 1994, we entered into a research and development collaboration with Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories (now Wyeth) to discover and develop drugs that interact with estrogen and progesterone receptors for use in hormone therapy, anti-cancer therapy, gynecological diseases and central nervous system disorders associated with menopause and fertility control. Bazedoxifene, a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), is the product of this collaboration.

Bazedoxifene (Viviant) is a synthetic drug that was designed to increase bone density while protecting breast and uterine tissue. Wyeth is developing bazedoxifene (Viviant) for the treatment and prevention of post-menopausal osteoporosis. FDA action on the Viviant NDA for the prevention of osteoporosis is expected in late 2007. Wyeth plans to submitted a second NDA for Viviant for the treatment of osteoporosis in 3Q07.

Wyeth is developing bazedoxifene in combination with Premarin® (Aprela) as a progesterone-free treatment for menopausal symptoms including osteoporosis and hot flush. Wyeth plans to file an NDA for Aprela in late 2007.
