R&D and Clinical Trial Capabilities

Our Research and Development capabilities are laser-focused on women’s health, and our most recent product, Slynd (drospirenone), is the result of more than a decade of hard work, dedication, and commitment. Exeltis is proud to have brought this much-needed new birth control brand, to market for women worldwide.


The Slynd project started 10 years ago, with the goal of delivering on an unmet need recognized by various health authorities and by the scientific community: creating an estrogen-free contraceptive with the proven efficacy of combined oral contraceptives.

Over the past decade, our Clinical Trial department recruited approximately 3,000 women into 20 of our global clinical studies including phases I, II and III, totaling about 20,000 female cycles of drug exposure.


Approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2019, Slynd is an innovative, estrogen-free, progestin-only pill (POP) offering a unique 24 active + 4 placebo dosing regimen and 24 hour missed pill window. Now millions of women can have an excellent choice for effective oral contraception without the risks of estrogen.

What is Slynd? SLYND is a birth control pill (oral contraceptive) that is used by females who can become pregnant to prevent pregnancy.
