In order to support the development programme and to prepare its product candidate for a future introduction on the market, Mithra has set up a North American advisory committee. Composed of 7 acknowledged menopause experts from the USA and Canada, this committee will especially advise Mithra on the clinical relevance and the potential added value of E4 based product candidate for the treatment of vasomotor symptoms. The committee will work with Mithra to challenge the current and future development plan with the needs of the community at large.

This meeting will be chaired by Prof. Jean-Michel Foidart, member of Mithra’s scientific committee. François Fornieri, CEO of Mithra Pharmaceuticals: “We are extremely proud that we’ve been able to bring top tier opinion leaders together to help us with our development plan which is a key objective for Mithra. The interest these international experts show in taking part in this meeting reflects the continuous and growing need for safe and effective solutions in the menopause field. We expect our product candidate will bring more choices to women and hope it will allow to address the unmet medical needs they are confronted with”. A second Pan-European advisory board meeting will be organized in Lisboa, Portugal in February 2017 to pursue this world market analysis and support the development plans in the EU.
