VIVUS is a biopharmaceutical company developing therapies to address obesity, sleep apnea, diabetes and male sexual health. The company's lead investigational product in clinical development, Qnexa, has completed phase 3 clinical trials for the treatment of obesity and is currently being considered for approval by US and EU regulators. VIVUS received a Complete Response Letter, or CRL, to the initial Qnexa NDA on October 28, 2010. VIVUS resubmitted the Qnexa NDA in October 2011, which has a FDA action date of July 17, 2012. On February 22, 2012, in a 20-to-2 vote, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee recommended that Qnexa be granted marketing approval by the FDA for the treatment of obesity in adults. In January 2012, we received the 180-day LOI from the CHMP. Qnexa is also in phase 2 clinical development for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea.
