Study Summary:

This study is for women in menopause with hot flashes. Menopause, a normal part of aging, is the time of a woman's last period. Hot flashes can interrupt a woman's daily life.

The purpose of this study is to find out how safe it is for these women to take fezolinetant long term (up to 52 weeks). To do that, the study will look at the number and severity of the "adverse events." Those are the side effects that study participants have while they are in the study.

The study treatments are fezolinetant low dose (1 tablet of fezolinetant and 1 placebo tablet) once a day, fezolinetant high dose (2 tablets of fezolinetant) once a day or placebo (2 tablets) once a day. (Placebo is a dummy treatment that looks like medicine but does not have any medicine in it.) Women in this study will be picked for 1 of the 3 study treatments by chance alone. The study participants will take study treatment for 52 weeks.

This study is "double-blinded." That means that the study participants and the study doctors do not know who takes which of the study treatments (fezolinetant low dose, fezolinetant high dose or placebo).

At weeks 2 and 4 and then once a month, the study participants will go the hospital or clinic for a check-up. They will be asked about medications, side effects and how they feel. Other checks will include physical exam and vital signs (heart rate, temperature and blood pressure). Blood and urine will be collected for laboratory tests. At some study visits, study participants will complete questionnaires that are about their quality of life. 

 


Qualified Participants Must:

• 40 Years to 65 Years (Adult, Older Adult)
• Sexes Eligible for Study: Female
• Subject is seeking treatment for relief for VMS (Hot Flashes) associated with menopause


Qualified Participants May Receive:

Payment for time and travel.

At the first and last study visits, they will have a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA for short) test done. To measure bone loss in the hips and spine, DXA creates pictures of the inside of these areas with low-dose x-rays. (The dose is approximately one-tenth of the amount of a normal chest x-ray.) Study participants who still have their uterus will have 2 more tests done at the first and last study visits. The other test is transvaginal ultrasound. It uses sound waves to create pictures of the organs in the pelvis. The sound waves are transmitted by a probe (transducer), which is placed inside the vagina. Study participants may have a screening mammogram done at the first and/or last study visit. A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breasts used to screen for breast cancer. Study participants who did not have this test done in the last 12 months will have it done at the first study visit. They will have it done at the last study visit if they are due for their screening mammogram and their own doctor agrees.
