François Fornieri, CEO Mithra : “2017 has been a crucial year of progress for Mithra during which we advanced our key clinical programs. These include the pivotal Phase III trials of our innovative 5th generation oral contraceptive, Estelle®, and the Phase II study of Donesta®, our novel candidate for menopausal symptoms. Also, business development activity accelerated significantly, marked by important commercialization contracts, including Libbs for Estelle® in Brazil, Fuji Pharma for Donesta® in Japan and Mayne Pharma for Myring™ in the US.

We look forward to building on the progress made to date, with important read-outs for both the Donesta® and Estelle® clinical trials during 2018, and the addition of commercial partners for our portfolio in new territories. We are confident that with Donesta® and Estelle®, we have two potential blockbusters in our pipeline that position Mithra for long-term international growth as a transformational leader in Women’s Health.”
