According to an article at Philly.com, “ Alan Schatzberg, a Stanford University psychiatrist and scientist, co-founded Corcept Therapeutics in 1998 to explore whether mifepristone could help treat major depression.” He left the company in 2007, when the company changed direction (but continued to explore uses for mifepristone).
Corcept Therapeutics has only one product: Korlym (mifepristone). The “abortion pill”, otherwise known as RU-486 or “Mifeprex” (brand name), is mifepristone.
Christine Blasey Ford participated in 8 published studies, which researched uses for the “abortion pill” or mifepristone. In five of these studies, Professor Ford is listed as affiliated with Corcept Therapeutics (as well as Stanford University). See study descriptions below. Several list her email address.
Korlym is approved by the FDA for individuals with Cushing’s syndrome who also have type 2 diabetes (not diabetes only). Cushing’s Syndrome is a rare disease. Based on 2002 prevalence data, it was extrapolated (estimated) that there were 587 individuals with Cushing’s Syndrome in the USA. The article mentioned above describes 5000 individuals might be eligible for Korlym.
Although Korlym is only approved for Cushing’s Syndrome and diabetes ONLY, it is widely available online as an “abortion pill” or “Emergency Contraceptive and Abortifacient”. See attached screenshots:
