Clinical Trial Data and Regulatory Progress on Lead Programs Targeting IVF, Endometriosis, and Uterine Fibroids to Transform Company in 2019
GENEVA, Switzerland and BOSTON, Mass. (December 7, 2018) – ObsEva SA (NASDAQ:OBSV), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapeutics for serious conditions that compromise a woman's reproductive health and pregnancy, today held an R&D Day in New York City.
At the event, company executives and women's health Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) discussed recent clinical data, upcoming clinical milestones, and commercial potential of ObsEva R&D pipeline, including nolasiban, an oral oxytocin receptor antagonist for the improvement of IVF outcomes, and linzagolix, a novel, oral gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist for the treatment of uterine fibroids and endometriosis. The company also outlined its recently initiated approach to commercial operations in preparation for potential European and U.S. regulatory approvals in 2021 and beyond.
"Today's meeting presents a major opportunity to underscore the tremendous unmet needs in our disease areas of focus in Women's Health and Fertility, and also demonstrate how ObsEva's compounds can provide significant value by helping physicians and patients address the current therapeutic shortcomings," said Ernest Loumaye, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of ObsEva.
ObsEva's Chief Commercial Officer Wim Souverijns further commented, "I recently joined ObsEva because I was attracted by its impressive late-stage R&D pipeline. Today, I am able to share some initial perspectives on how our most advanced compound, nolasiban, can potentially transform the lives of couples experiencing infertility, starting in Europe."
Senior Executives from ObsEva's management team were joined by KOLs Hugh Taylor, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Obstetrics Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Conn.; Annette Lee, MD, Medical Director of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at Abington Reproductive Medicine in Abington, Penn.; and Christophe Blockeel, MD, PhD, Medical Director of the Centre for Reproductive Medicine, University Hospitals Brussels in Belgium.
