For example, using a dose of dienogest 2 mg daily, the reduction of endometriosis-related pain was significant; however, in 95% of cases spotting was reported. A mouse model of endometriosis shows that dienogest reduces lesion size better than duphaston and Esmya, although all three were effective.

The results of this long-term study performed in Europe are supported by a week, nonrandomized trial of dienogest 2 mg daily conducted in Japan on women with confirmed endometriosis.
Footnotes Disclosure The author declares that he has no conflict of interest in this work. To study these issues, scientists in Hong Kong compared the anti-endometriotic effects, adverse events on reproduction, therapeutic mechanism, and disease recurrence of Esmya, duphaston, and dienogest in a mouse model of endometriosis.
Dienogest Treatment Reduces Endometriosis Lesions Better than Duphaston or Esmya, Mouse Study Shows

Similarly dienogest was found to be as effective as buserelin given intranasallyanother gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist. Dienogest in endometriosis Dienogest is an oral progestin that has been investigated systematically for the treatment of endometriosis in dose-ranging, placebo-controlled, active comparator-controlled, and long-term trials performed in Europe and Japan Figure 1.
Scientists also monitored lesion growth before and after therapy to analyze disease recurrence. Short Form 36 Health Survey scores showed a trend to greater improvement in both physical and mental health in the dienogest than the leuprolide acetate group. Effective long-term management of endometriosis is a significant clinical objective in view of the debilitating nature of this often chronic condition.
More than just menstrual cramps: No further increase was observed in the patient group treated with dienogest 2 mg for longer than 24 weeks Figure 1.
Dieenogest 2 mg and 4 mg dienogest doses were generally well tolerated and rates of discontinuations due to adverse events were low. Unlike other agents in the norprogestin class, dienogest lacks androgenic effects; rather, dienogest has beneficial antiandrogenic properties typical of the progesterone derivatives, encometriosis are associated with minimal changes in lipid and carbohydrate levels.
Women treated with dienogest 2 mg showed similar mean estradiol levels at 12 weeks compared to women treated with placebo, whereas LA-treated women showed a marked decrease in mean estradiol concentrations from The pharmacological profile of dienogest.
In this pooled analysis of women with endometriosis who participated in four clinical trials of dienogest 2 mg in the European development program, dienogest was well tolerated with a favorable safety profile that extended over a period of up to 65 weeks. Current endometriosis treatments with surgery and hormonal medicines are problematic for women who want to preserve their fertility without experiencing side effects or disease recurrence.

Levels of proliferating endomstriosis nuclear antigens Pcnaa protein associated with cell proliferation, were lower with all three, but only duphaston decreased the number of proliferating cells.
Premature discontinuation rates endoetriosis to AEs were also included for analysis, as an index of overall tolerability. Dienogest is as effective as leuprolide acetate in treating the painful symptoms of endometriosis: Support Center Support Center.
