Executive Summary

There are no outstanding statistical issues for this NDA.

Background

The statistical review of the original NDA was completed by Paul Hshieh (March 20, 2009). Subsequently, the sponsor responded to (i) the FDA’s CR (complete response) letter dated April 6, 2009 and (ii) IR (information request) that were faxed on July 28, 2009 and September 18, 2009 in the submissions dated May 13, 2009, August 7, 2009 and September 22, 2009 2009, respectively. The reviews of these responses were also done by Paul Hshieh. However, only two written review memos were done (July 27, 2009 and August 24, 2009) for the reviews of the first two submissions. Nevertheless, Paul Hshieh has indicated in his email dated October 1, 2009 that the sponsor’s responses on September 22, 2009 are acceptable. As Paul Hshieh is on leave, I completed this final review memo.

Statistical Evaluation

To my knowledge, there are no outstanding statistical issues for this NDA.
