PRINCETON, N.J., March 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Agile Therapeutics, Inc., (Nasdaq:AGRX), a women's healthcare company today announced that an abstract related to the Phase 3 SECURE study for AG200-15 (Twirla®), an investigational, once-weekly, low-dose hormonal contraceptive patch, has been accepted as a poster presentation at the upcoming APhA 2018 (American Pharmacists Association) Annual Meeting & Exposition, which will be held from March 16 – 19, 2018 in Nashville, TN.

The poster will include a summary of efficacy and safety along with the results of the bleeding and wearability/tolerability profile from the SECURE study as previously reported. 

The presentation details are as follows:

Poster Title:  Results from the SECURE trial, a Phase 3 Study of the AG200-15 Investigational Transdermal Contraceptive Patch

Poster ID: 231

Room:  Exhibit Hall C-D, Music City Center

Date and Time: Saturday, March 17, 9:00am-6:00pm and Sunday, March 18, 9:00am-3:00pm

The Phase 3 SECURE study was a multicenter, single-arm, open-label, 13 cycle trial designed to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of AG200-15, also known as Twirla, in 2032 healthy women, aged 18 years and over, at 102 investigational sites across the United States. The SECURE study design included a number of stringent elements, including exclusion of treatment cycles for use of back-up contraception and for lack of sexual activity. The study also had broad entry criteria, placed no limitations on BMI or other demographic factors during enrollment, and enrolled a large and diverse patient population in order to allow efficacy to be assessed across different, real-world groups, as requested by the FDA. These entry criteria resulted in the inclusion of a substantial number of women with a high BMI, who have frequently been underrepresented in past contraceptive studies.
