Commenting on the meeting, Dr. Richard Sachse, the Company’s Chief Scientific Officer, stated, “During our meeting with the FDA, the Agency stated that the clinical studies we performed with respect to Macrilen™ address the prior deficiencies mentioned in the November 2014 complete response letter. This conclusion paves the way for our re-submission of an NDA for Macrilen™, which we expect to file in the third quarter of this year. While indicating that our conclusions regarding the performance of Macrilen™ are review issues subject to an examination of the complete data set, the Agency indicated that the summary data we submitted prior to the meeting appear to support the propositions we advanced. Most importantly, the FDA specified the additional statistical analysis of existing data that would be required to further support our conclusions. We expect that we can provide those data in a compelling fashion and demonstrate that Macrilen™ is a robust, repeatable test, demonstrating adequate sensitivity and specificity and that the performance of the product would be improved by utilizing a more appropriate cut-off point.”
