It will be available in three sizes that deliver either 300 IU, 450 IU or 900 IU of liquid Gonal-f filled-by-mass, which can be administered in multiple doses. Developed to make infertility treatment easier, it provides patients with a new way to administer Gonal-f by simply dialing the correct dose without the need to mix medication or load cartridges. It was designed specifically for the treatment of infertility to allow patients to easily and accurately deliver a precise daily dose of medication.

Serono expects Gonal-f RFF Pen to be available in the US in Q3 of this year.

Gonal-f RFF Pen is indicated for induction of ovulation and pregnancy in anovuluatory infertile women in whom the cause of infertility is functional and not due to primary ovarian failure. It is also indicated for the development of multiple follicles in ovulatory women part
