Bayer AG

Drug Names(s): drospirenone and estradiol

Description: Angeliq is a low-dose combination estradiol (estrogen) and drospirenone (progestogens). Unlike most synthetic progestogens, drospirenone mimics the hormone progesterone, which exerts anti-androgenic and anti-mineralocorticoid effects. Thus, drospirenonecounteracts the water retention, potential weight gain, and increase in blood pressure that estrogen and many synthetic progestins cancause.

Deal Structure: In 2006, Bayer acquired Schering AG.
