WOMEN'S HEALTH: NEW APPROACHES TO A SEARLE TRADITION

In the past 40 years, women's health has progressed from being a subject rarely discussed in mixed company to one of the most exciting and visible healthcare issues of today. In fact, more and more companies worldwide are now creating units committed entirely to research and development in the women's health arena.

As a pioneer in the women's health movement, Searle looks on the current flurry of interest in this issue with satisfaction. To borrow a popular consumer product slogan, we've "been there and done that," and are renewing our leadership focus. Searle was a co-developer of the first oral contraceptive Enovid, which was introduced in 1960. "The Pill," as it came to be known, provided women around the world with reproductive freedom and helped launch the women's movement. It had a dramatic impact outside the sphere of medicine and irreversibly changed the world's social and economic landscape. Today, approximately 80 percent of American women born since 1945 have taken the Pill -- a trend made possible by Searle's innovative spirit and accomplishments in women's health.

Searle now offers one of the most comprehensive product lines of oral contraceptives and other women's healthcare products available worldwide, including treatment for common and potentially dangerous vaginal infections and therapy that manages the debilitating symptoms of endometriosis.
