SAN DIEGO, September 5, 2006 -- Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. today reported the results of its end-of-review meeting with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) meeting for the indiplon capsules New Drug Application (NDA). The meeting with the FDA was specifically focused on determining the actions needed to bring indiplon immediate-release (IR) capsules from Approvable to Approval for the treatment of insomnia.

The Company summarized the results of the FDA meeting as follows:

  • The FDA requested that the Company supplement the pharmacokinetic/food effect profile of indiplon (IR) capsules to include several meal types.

"Subject to those further consultations with the FDA we are expecting to provide a complete re-submission sometime before the end of the 2nd Qtr 2007. We are encouraged about the prospects for indiplon capsules to compete effectively in the marketplace upon approval and continue to evaluate alternatives for bringing it to market in a timely manner."
