Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to determine the long-term safety of asoprisnil 5 mg for 12 months in women with endometriosis from study M01-398.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Endometriosis Drug: Asoprisnil Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Endometriosis, the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, is a progressive, estrogen-dependent disease that occurs in menstruating women of reproductive age. Although all major endometriosis therapies are effective for the treatment of pain, no single treatment is superior to others in terms of efficacy. The major drawbacks of the current medical therapies are severe side effects such as hot flushes and osteoporosis. The objective of this study is to determine the long-term safety of asoprisnil 5 mg daily for 12 months in women with endometriosis, after an initial 12 weeks in study M01-398. The safety will be based on assessments of the endometrium, lipid profiles, adverse events, and changes from baseline laboratory values and vital signs.
