After menopause, your body’s center for temperature control in your brain (your “body's thermostat”), becomes more sensitive to slight changes in body temperature. When your “thermostat” thinks your body is too warm, it starts a chain of events, a hot flash — to cool you down. Elinzanetant is a non-hormonal drug that acts on one part of your brain to control such kind of temperature changes and then reduce the hot flashes.
Hot Flashes or "vasomotor symptoms" are the most commonly reported menopausal symptoms. These symptoms are characterized by a sudden increase of blood flow, often to the face, neck, and chest, that causes the sensation of extreme heat and profuse sweating. When symptoms occur at night they are called “night sweats” and can cause significant sleep disturbances. Episodes of vasomotor symptoms can last 1 to 5 minutes and can be associated with perspiration, flushing, chills, anxiety, and even heart palpitations.

There is a NEW NON-Hormonal treatment option under study:
We are recruiting women for our NON-Hormonal investigational medication study who meet the following criteria:
- Are postmenopausal (with or without uterus) & (with or without ovaries)
- Are between 40 and 65 years old
- Are experiencing at least 50 moderate to severe Hot Flashes a week. (If a hot flash interrupts your activity-even to fan yourself or wipe you brow, it's at least "moderate")
- Are in good general health
Please complete the information below. Ask a question or just ask someone to contact ou about the study. There is no obligation to join the study,
