Tyros Biopharma launches GYNALAC® in Canada - a Novel & Natural Solution for the Treatment and Prevention of Bacterial Vaginosis

GYNALAC®, a novel treatment to help women overcome their recurrent Bacterial Vaginosis, is now available in Canada.

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common lower genital tract disorder among women of reproductive age (pregnant and non-pregnant) and the most prevalent cause of vaginal discharge and malodour. It has been associated with a significant number of obstetric and gynaecologic complications, such as preterm labour and delivery, premature rupture of membranes, spontaneous abortion, chorioamnionitis, postpartum endometritis, post-Caesarean delivery wound infections, postsurgical infections, and subclinical pelvic inflammatory disease.

GYNALAC® is a double-acting vaginal gel, which contains a unique formulation of both lactic acid and sodium hyaluronate, and is clinically proven to treat acute episodes of Bacterial Vaginosis and prevent their recurrences. Lactic acid is naturally produced by friendly bacteria (Lactobacillus) in a woman’s vagina and is the cornerstone in the normal maintenance of the vaginal ecosystem by contributing to the reestablishment of the natural vaginal flora. Presence in adequate amounts ensures the maintenance of an acidic vaginal pH, where Lactobacilli (friendly bacteria) can adequately proliferate and correctly metabolize. Clinical evidence shows that a treatment course of lactic acid helps to relieve and prevent symptoms of BV, thereby bringing a natural protection against intimate irritation. Sodium hyaluronate is a compound that is also naturally produced by a woman’s body. Sodium hyaluronate has a long lasting moisturizing effect and promotes wound healing by enabling cells to retain moisture in the tissue. These two natural ingredients are delivered directly into the vagina where they can restore the natural flora and help protect against odor.

Anthony Gouvousis, president of Tyros Biopharma, explains that “Bacterial Vaginosis is the most common cause of vaginal infections and is about twice as common as Yeast infections. It is estimated that up to 29% of women in North America can be infected and can be found in up to 25% of pregnant women. This type of infection occurs when the healthy balance between the “good” and the “bad” bacteria in the vaginal ecosystem becomes disrupted due to various external or physiological risk factors. When the number of protective bacteria (Lactobacilli) decreases, “bad” bacteria (such as Gardnerella) overgrow and BV symptoms occur. Bacterial vaginosis is usually not dangerous, however if left untreated it can increase the risk for other medical problems, including post-operative infections and pregnancy related complications. ”

GYNALAC® is manufactured in Canada and will be available without a prescription across Canada in the feminine hygiene sections at participating pharmacies, within the next few weeks.

Health Canada Licenses a Novel Solution for the Treatment and Prevention of Bacterial Vaginosis.

Sodium hyaluronate has a long lasting moisturizing effect and promotes wound healing by enabling cells to retain moisture in the tissue. These two natural ingredients are delivered directly into the vagina where they can restore the natural flora and help protect against odor.

According to Lee Alexander Sciortino, Vice-President of Commercial Operations at Tyros Biopharma, “GYNALAC® not only provides a novel solution to treat acute episodes of Bacterial Vaginosis, but is also clinically proven, in prophylaxis, to prevent recurrences of Bacterial Vaginosis. Recurrence rates after antibiotic treatment in excess of 70% after 6 months have been described, even after successful antibiotic treatment. One possible explanation for the high rate of recurrence is that antibiotic treatment does not re-establish the protective lactobacilli following therapy. Developing a routine with GYNALAC® helps a woman maintain the natural vaginal pH balance and prevent these recurrences.”
