Repros Holds Constructive Meeting With FDA Regarding Androxal(R) NDA Filing

  • No New Clinical Studies Requested
  • Environmental Impact Assessment Plan Will be Discussed With FDA Prior to NDA Submission
  • Company to Host Conference Call on Friday, November 7, 2014, at 9 AM Eastern

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Repros Therapeutics Inc.® (Nasdaq:RPRX) today reported the outcome from its meeting with the FDA to discuss the Company's expected NDA submission.

Based on the data compiled to date, the FDA did not identify any additional clinical studies that would be required for filing the NDA. Although no specific request was made, the FDA stated that as a result of the recent Advisory Committee Meeting, cardiovascular risk is of particular interest and that additional safety studies could be required in the future.

The FDA advised that the Company's environmental assessment of Androxal® planned for the NDA should be discussed with appropriate Agency personnel prior to NDA submission. The Agency stated that due to their evolving interest in this class of chemicals this would be important to avoid late cycle approval delays, and the Company plans to engage in those discussions promptly.

Repros does not anticipate that an additional meeting will be held before submission of its NDA given the detailed guidance received and the subsequent response the Company will provide the Agency. Repros is confident that it will be able to address all concerns noted in the meeting and believes the discussions provided constructive guidance for the NDA filing. The Company will reassess submission timelines once it has discussed the environmental assessment requirements with appropriate Agency personnel.
