New endometriosis drug finally coming here.

Visanne, a drug developed by Bayer, has been available to endometriosis patients overseas for quite a while now. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, including commercial ones, Bayer decided not to bring the drug to Australia despite having had the drug successfully registered with the Australian Therapeutics Goods Administration.
Now a public awareness campaign by Syl Freedman, a long-suffering endometriosis patient, has been successful in persuading Bayer to reverse their decision. The drug is expected to be available early 2015.
