Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test
Procter & Gamble has launched the Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test, the only ovulation test that can identify a woman’s four best days to get pregnant (two more days than other ovulation tests). Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test identifies the fertile window of the menstrual cycle by monitoring two key urinary fertility hormones: estrone-3-glucuronide (E3G; one of the urinary metabolites of estradiol) and luteinizing hormone (LH).

Karbinal ER Extended-Release Oral Suspension
The FDA has approved a New Drug Application for Karbinal ER (carbinoxamine maleate) extended-release oral suspension 4 mg/5 mL, the first sustained-release histamine-receptor blocking agent indicated for the treatment of seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis in children 2 years of age and older. Tris Pharma is in the process of finalizing a marketing partner and plans to launch the prescription-only product later this year in anticipation of the fall allergy season.
