VIVUS, Inc. Weight-Loss Drug Qnexa Gets Three-Month Delay for FDA Review
Published: Apr 11, 2012
Drug developer Vivus Inc. says that regulators will take another three months to review the safety strategy on its proposed obesity drug Qnexa. The company says the Food and Drug Administration is now expected to make a decision on Qnexa by July 17. Previously the agency was scheduled to return a decision by April 17. Vivus says the FDA extended its review because it needed more time to evaluate the risk evaluation and reduction strategy Vivus has proposed.
