Lilly and Amylin Confirm FDA Extension of Exenatide Once Weekly New Drug Application Review


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that following the closure of FDA building due to extreme weather it was granting a five day extension for the review of Amylin Pharmaceuticals Inc and Eli Lilly and Co’s Exenatide Once Weekly New Drug Application. The new drug is part of a collaboration between the companies started in 2002, which includes the currently available twice daily type 2 diabetes drug Byetta.

Exenatide once weekly is an investigational, extended-release medication for type 2 diabetes designed to deliver continuous therapeutic levels of exenatide in a single weekly dose. The NDA for exenatide once weekly was submitted in May 2009 and accepted by the FDA in July 2009.

Both companies released confirmations of this extension.
