An electronic copy of the full text of the consent agreement package can be obtained from the FTC Home Page (for October 5, 2007), on the World Wide Web, at http://www.ftc.gov/ os/2007/10/index.htm. A paper copy can be obtained from the FTC Public Reference Room, Room 130-H, 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20580, either in person or by calling (202) 326-2222. Public comments are invited, and may be filed with the Commission in either paper or electronic form. All comments should be filed as prescribed in the ADDRESSES section above, and must be received on or before the date specified in the DATES section. Analysis of Agreement Containing Consent Order to Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement containing a consent order from Merilou Barnekow, an individual trading and doing business as Women’s Menopause Health Center (‘‘respondent’’). The proposed consent order has been placed on the public record for thirty (30) days for reception of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the agreement and the comments received and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement or make final the agreement’s proposed order. This matter involves the advertising and promotion of Preserve Progesterone Cream and Return to Eden Progesterone Cream, transdermal creams that, according to their labels, contain, among other ingredients, natural progesterone. According to the FTC complaint, respondent represented that Preserve Progesterone Cream and Return to Eden Progesterone Cream: (1) are effective in preventing, treating, or curing osteoporosis; (2) are effective in preventing or reducing the risk of estrogen-inducted endometrial (uterine) cancer; and (3) do not increase the user’s risk of developing breast cancer and/or are effective in preventing or reducing the user’s risk of developing breast cancer. The complaint alleges that respondent failed to have substantiation for these claims. The proposed consent order contains provisions designed to prevent respondent from engaging in similar acts and practices in the future. Part I of the proposed order requires respondents to have competent and VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:55 Oct 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 reliable scientific evidence substantiating claims that any progesterone product or any other dietary supplement, food, drug, device or health-related service or program is effective in preventing, treating, or curing osteoporosis, in preventing or reducing the risk of estrogen-induced endometrial cancer or breast cancer, or in the mitigation, treatment, prevention, or cure of any disease, illness, or health condition; that it does not increase the user’s risk of developing breast cancer, is safe for human use, or has no side effects; or about its health benefits, performance, efficacy, safety, or side effects. Part II of the proposed order prevents respondent from misrepresenting the existence, contents, validity, results, conclusions, or interpretations of any test, study, or research. Part III of the proposed order provides that the order does not prohibit respondent from making representations for any drug that are permitted in labeling for the drug under any tentative final or final Food and Drug Administration (‘‘FDA’’) standard or under any new drug application approved by the FDA; representations for any medical device that are permitted in labeling under any new medical device application approved by the FDA; and representations for any product that are specifically permitted in labeling for that product by regulations issued by the FDA under the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990. Parts IV through VIII require respondent to keep copies of relevant advertisements and materials substantiating claims made in the advertisements; to provide copies of the order to certain of her personnel; to notify the Commission of changes in corporate structure and changes in employment that might affect compliance obligations under the order; and to file compliance reports with the Commission. Part IX provides that the order will terminate after twenty (20) years under certain circumstances. The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the agreement and proposed order or to modify in any way their terms. By direction of the Commission. Donald S. Clark, Secretary.
