Status Details:
  • A phase III trial was completed in China in 2008 by the National Research Institute for Family Planning.
  • In the Chinese study, TU was evaluated as a stand-alone contraceptive, but it is unlikely that further development will happen with it as as a single API product, but would rather be developed with a progestin added.
