Noven announced that Minivelle (estradiol transdermal system) is now available. Minivelle is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (eg, hot flashes, night sweats) due to menopause.

Minivelle is currently the smallest estrogen patch available at 2.48cm2 per patch (about 34% smaller than Vivelle-Dot).  Minivelle contains bioidentical estradiol, a plant-based estrogen that is chemically identical to the estrogen produced naturally by a woman’s body. Its DOTMatrix technology allows estradiol to continuously release upon application, increasing estradiol levels above baseline within four hours.

Minivelle is available in 0.0375mg, 0.05mg, 0.075mg and 0.1mg strengths in 8-system packs.
