Executive Summary

P&U PURSUING SEPARATE APPROVAL OF ROGAINE EXTRA STRENGTH FOR WOMEN with data from additional clinical trials that are slated to begin shortly, the company said at a July 16 joint meeting of FDA's Nonprescription Drugs and Dermatologic & Ophthalmic Drugs Advisory Committees in Bethesda, Md. Pharmacia & Upjohn first attempted to gain approval for use of 5% minoxidil solution in both men and women but results from the initial round of clinical trials did not show statistically significant efficacy in women.
