Personalized medicine 3 min read

Women’s health focuses on women’s unique health needs and concerns throughout their lifespan. It covers a broad range of medical, physical, mental, and social aspects unique to women. Key areas of focus include menstrual disorders, infections, infertility, and hormonal imbalances.

  • Menstrual Disorders: Irregular periods, heavy bleeding (menorrhagia), painful periods (dysmenorrhea), and absence of menstruation (amenorrhea) are common menstrual issues. Symptoms vary significantly among different individuals and can, in some cases, interfere directly with daily activities.
  • Infections: Bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis, and sexually transmitted infections are prevalent infections that affect the female reproductive system. Common symptoms include vaginal irritation, swelling, and unusual discharge and odor.
  • Infertility: Endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, pelvic inflammatory disease, or fibroids are different conditions that can lead to chronic pelvic pain and infertility.
  • Menopause: During the menopause transition, women experience substantial hormonal changes that can lead to symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and decreased libido.

Gynecological treatment options

Regular check-ups, screenings, and preventive care are crucial for maintaining women’s health.

Common gynecological conditions can be treated by different active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), including steroidal and non-steroidal substances, antifungals, and antibiotics.

The API’s selection and dosage are based on the severity of each case. Their adequate combination with a suitable cream base can help decrease possible side effects and increase patient adherence to treatment.  

Pentravan®: A Versatile Transdermal Delivery System for Women’s Health

Pentravan® stands out as a highly effective transdermal delivery system, uniquely tailored to meet the diverse therapeutic needs in women’s health. Its formulation as a permeation-enhancing vanishing cream makes it an ideal cream base for compounding a wide range of APIs, addressing conditions from menstrual disorders to menopause-related symptoms.

Key Advantages for Gynecological Treatments

Pentravan® is expertly designed for personalized gynecological treatments, ensuring compatibility with a broad spectrum of APIs. This facilitates the creation of customized medication regimens tailored to the specific health concerns and conditions of women, enhancing therapeutic outcomes. The cream’s non-greasy, quickly vanishing texture, combined with its fragrance-free composition, significantly improves patient compliance and satisfaction, making it a preferred choice for ongoing treatments.

Innovative Solution for Menstrual and Menopausal Concerns

Pentravan® has been shown to be particularly effective in the management of menstrual disorders and menopausal symptoms. Its ability to deliver hormones and other medications directly through the skin provides a more steady and controlled release of the drugs, mitigating the fluctuations in hormone levels that can exacerbate these conditions. Furthermore, the ease of application and the elegance of the cream base contribute to a more pleasant and acceptable treatment experience for patients.

Safety and Efficacy Proven by Clinical Studies

Clinical studies underscore the safety and efficacy of Pentravan® in delivering therapeutic agents for various gynecological conditions. The cream base has been extensively tested and validated for intravaginal use, offering a reassuring profile for both patients and healthcare providers. Its proven effectiveness in enhancing the permeation of APIs across the skin barrier demonstrates Pentravan®’s vital role in advancing personalized medicine in women’s health.
