MonoSol Rx Receives FDA Acceptance of New Drug Application for Tadalafil PharmFilm®
PDUFA Action Date Set for September 18, 2017
NJ, February 7, 2017 – MonoSol Rx, a specialty pharmaceutical company
leveraging its PharmFilm® drug delivery technology to improve patient
outcomes and to address unmet needs, today announced that the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for review the Company’s New
Drug Application (NDA) for Tadalafil Oral Soluble Film (Tadalafil OSF)
for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The Tadalafil OSF NDA has
been assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action
date of September 18, 2017.
“The acceptance of the NDA and assignment of a PDUFA target action date is an important milestone that puts Tadalafil OSF one step closer to potential approval,” said Dan Barber, Vice President of MonoSol Rx. “Based on the success of our pivotal pharmacokinetic study in 2016 and our status as the first film alternative to tadalafil tablets to file for FDA approval, we believe that our product has significant potential and is well-positioned to compete in the multi-billion dollar erectile dysfunction market. Through our engagement with ESC Advisors, we are continuing to explore partnership opportunities for Tadalafil OSF and look forward to advancing this process as we move closer to our PDUFA date.”
Tadalafil is a PDE5 inhibitor currently marketed in tablet form for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) under the brand name Cialis®, and for treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension under the brand name Adcirca®. Tadalafil OSF will be offered in single pack doses and is expected to have several Orange Book listed patents upon approval.
