SAN DIEGO, Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daré Bioscience, Inc. (NASDAQ: DARE), a leader in women's health innovation, today announced that Sabrina Martucci Johnson, its President and Chief Executive Officer, will participate in a live panel discussion titled, The Evolution of Birth Control: Considerations from Product Development to End-User Adoption from Leading Innovators, at 12:30 p.m. EST / 9:30 a.m. PST on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, at the Women's Health Innovation Series: Contraception Innovation Summit, which will be held virtually.
The panel will discuss the opportunities and challenges faced by innovators when advancing new methods of birth control. As a featured speaker, Ms. Johnson will share Daré's commitment to addressing unmet needs in contraception and the Company's own journey with three innovative product candidates under development: Ovaprene®, an investigational hormone-free, monthly contraceptive that the Company is advancing towards a pivotal contraceptive study and whose U.S. commercial rights are under a license agreement with Bayer; DARE-LARC1, an investigational user-controlled long acting reversible levonorgestrel drug delivery system designed to store in a single implant and precisely deliver hundreds of therapeutic doses over months or years, whose development has been supported by $20.5 million in grant funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; and ORB-204 and ORB-214, investigational injectable formulations of etonogestrel being developed as longer-acting (6- and 12-months) methods of contraception with a more predictable return to fertility compared to currently marketed injectable contraceptive products.
The Contraception Innovation Summit is part of the 2021 Women's Health Innovation Series. The Summit is about putting women at the center of contraceptive research, innovations, and education to improve women's contraceptive journeys throughout their lives. Participants will include a leading network of pharma, biotech, medical device companies, start-ups, investors, researchers, and health care providers driving innovation at the convergence of healthcare and technology.
