--

FDA considers NDA resubmission a complete Class 2 response

 

Updated guidance on extended cash runway, funding operations into Q1 2021

--

CHESTERBROOK, Pa., March 5, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trevena, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRVN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel medicines for patients with central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has acknowledged receipt of the resubmitted New Drug Application (NDA) for IV oliceridine, the Company’s lead investigational asset for the management of moderate-to-severe acute pain.

 

“I am pleased that FDA considers our resubmission to be a complete response to the Agency’s 2018 letter. This represents the crucial next step to bringing oliceridine to patients,” said Carrie Bourdow, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trevena. “There remains a significant clinical need in the hospital setting for an effective and well-tolerated IV analgesic to help manage patients’ moderate-to-severe pain. We are committed to delivering oliceridine to these patients and their healthcare providers, and we look forward to supporting the agency’s review of our application.”

 

In their acknowledgement letter, FDA stated that the Company’s resubmission is a complete, Class 2 response to the Agency’s action letter dated November 2, 2018. A Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) goal date has been set for August 7, 2020.

 

In addition, the Company today announced that it is updating and extending its cash runway guidance. Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were approximately $35.8 million as of December 31, 2019, which the Company believes will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operating expenses, debt service, and capital expenditure requirements into the first quarter of 2021.

 

The information above related to the Company's expected operating results for the year ended and as of December 31, 2019, including revenue and cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, is preliminary, has not been audited and is subject to change upon completion of the audit of the Company's financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

 

 

 

About Oliceridine

Oliceridine is a G protein-selective mu-opioid receptor agonist in development for the management of moderate-to-severe acute pain in hospitals or other controlled clinical settings where intravenous therapy is warranted. It is a new chemical entity with a novel mechanism of action that enables more selective targeting of newly discovered pathways with the potential for fewer side effects. Oliceridine is an investigational product and has not been approved by FDA or any other regulatory agency. If approved, the Company expects that oliceridine will be classified as a Schedule II controlled substance.
