Loramyc NDA Not Accepted by FDA

Bioalliance Pharma To Complete NDA For Loramyc With Data on Debossed Mucoadhesive Tablet

PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 9, 2009 - Regulatory News:

BioAlliance Pharma SA (Paris: BIO), the specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the treatment of opportunistic infections in cancer and AIDS, today announced that the FDA did not accept the NDA for Loramyc (miconazole) mucoadhesive buccal tablet (MBT) to be filed based on the lack of a tablet imprint code. Loramyc was approved in Europe in 2007 and is currently marketed in several EU territories including France, Germany, the UK, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. While the EU does not require a unique tablet identifier, the U.S. FDA does require a tablet imprint code for drug identification purposes. Prior to the initial filing, BioAlliance initiated the development of a debossed tablet to fulfill this requirement. BioAlliance will work closely with the FDA on the introduction of the debossed tablet and will soon after resubmit the Loramyc application.
