Adenomyosis and Ulipristal Acetate

Official Title

Pilot Phase II, Randomized , and Control in Double Blind Placebo Effectiveness a 3 Months on Bleeding Fibroids Treatment With ULIPRISTAL ACETATE 10 mg/Day in Patients Suffering From Symptomatic Endometriosis

Brief Summary

      Evaluation of efficiency of selective progesterone receptor modulators (SPRM) (Ulipristal
      acetate) on bleeding control and pain for patients with adenomyosis and wish to keep

Detailed Description

      After inclusion according to criteria, 2 arms : placebo and Ulipristal acetate (UA) 10mg with
      randomisation, 1 patient with placebo for 3 patients with UA.

      48 patients will be included in this trial. The end point will be the bleeding evaluated by
      Pictorial Blood-loss Assessment Chart (PBAC) score, the amenorrhea rate and the pain
      evaluated with visual analogic scale.

Primary Outcome

Percentage of patients with a control uterine bleeding estimated by a score of Pictorial Blood-loss Assessment Chart (PABC) < 75 of 28 days to the discontinuation of the study (S13)

Secondary Outcome

 Evolution of the PBAC score over 28 days compared to pre-treatment score (J1)
