Tue, 11/24/2009 - 3:33am
Transcept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is scheduled to meet with the FDA on January 20, 2010 to discuss the Complete Response Letter regarding the New Drug Application (NDA) for Intermezzo® (zolpidem tartrate sublingual tablet). As previously announced, the Complete Response Letter, received by Transcept on October 28, 2009, indicated that the FDA could not approve the NDA in its present form. The NDA seeks approval to market Intermezzo® for use as-needed for the treatment of insomnia when a middle of the night awakening is followed by difficulty returning to sleep. Following the receipt of official FDA minutes of the meeting, Transcept plans to provide an update on its discussions with the FDA and the status of the anticipated Intermezzo® NDA resubmission.
