Vanda Pharmaceuticals announced that the company held a pre-NDA meeting with the Division of Neurology Products of the FDA to discuss the regulatory path for filing a New Drug Application, or NDA, for tasimelteon, a circadian regulator, for the treatment of Non-24-Hour Disorder. Non-24 is a serious, rare circadian rhythm disorder that affects a majority of totally blind individuals. Currently there is no FDA approved treatment for Non-24. At the pre-NDA meeting, the FDA confirmed that the efficacy and safety data proposed by Vanda to be submitted in the tasimelteon NDA for Non-24 is adequate to support filing. The NDA supporting package that includes data from clinical pharmacology, pre-clinical pharmacology program, chemistry and manufacturing was also deemed adequate to support filing.
