Lupin Pharma Canada announces the availability of Intrarosa (prasterone vaginal ovules), a new treatment option in Canada for women with postmenopausal vulvovaginal atrophy
MONTREAL, Jan. 25, 2023 /CNW Telbec/ - Lupin Pharma Canada, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lupin Limited (Lupin), announced today the launch of Intrarosa® (prasterone vaginal ovules) for the treatment of postmenopausal vulvovaginal atrophy.
"The arrival of Intrarosa® is great news," said Dr. Céline Bouchard, gynecologist from Quebec. "It is a new option for women who suffer from the symptoms of menopause such as dyspareunia (painful intercourse), vaginal dryness, irritation, and itching. Most importantly, Intrarosa® is a unique therapy with its mode of action that acts on both estrogen and androgen deficiencies, responds quickly and has a safe profile." Dr. Bouchard added, "Many women have been waiting for Intrarosa®."
"Lupin is dedicated to serving both patients and healthcare providers with high quality medicines that address patient needs and deliver value. We are pleased that Intrarosa® is now available in the Canadian market. It offers a new treatment option to Canadian women with menopausal symptoms such as dyspareunia (painful intercourse), vaginal dryness, irritation, and itching," said Patrick Nadeau, General Manager of Lupin Pharma Canada.
"Launching Intrarosa® in Canada has a very special value to us. Dr. Fernand Labrie, the late founder of Endoceutics, had dedicated his career to developing safe treatment options for women, which is now achieved with the absence of serious warnings and precautions on the monograph of Intrarosa®. We are also very proud that the product is manufactured here in Quebec by our subsidiary MSH Pharma" commented Dennis Turpin, President and CEO of Endoceutics.
Intrarosa® is an ovule that is administered intravaginally once a day at bedtime with the use of the provided latex-free applicator or with fingers.
