Oct 22 (Reuters) - Theravance Inc (THRX.O) said U.S. health regulators asked for additional clinical information for the approval of telavancin for the treatment of skin diseases.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an approvable letter to the drug developer, a notice that specifies conditions to be fulfilled before a product is approved.

Theravance and its partner Astellas Pharma US Inc, affiliate of Astellas Pharma Inc (4503.T) said that no additional clinical studies will need to be initiated to respond to the approvable letter. (Reporting by Neha Pathania in Bangalore)
