This is a Phase III, multicentre, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, long-term study investigating the efficacy and safety of the 5mg and 10mg doses of PGL4001 for the treatment of uterine myoma. The target population is composed of pre-menopausal women with symptomatic uterine myoma(s) characterised by heavy bleeding.The main objective of this study is to assess the sustained efficacy and safety of long term on-off treatment with PGL4001 5 or 10mg doses on uterine bleeding, myoma size, pain and quality of life.
