TGA Approval Granted For ZolpiMist™
PERTH, AUSTRALIA – 29 July 2020: SUDA Pharmaceuticals Ltd (ASX: SUD), a leader in oromucosal drug delivery, is pleased to announce that the Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA) has approved the registration of the Company’s lead product ZolpiMist (zolpidem tartrate) for the treatment of short-term insomnia in adults.
As outlined on 12 May 2020, SUDA had submitted a Marketing Authorisation Application (MAA) to the TGA for ZolpiMist in April 2019. SUDA, subsequent to the submission, made a strategic decision to register a supplemental active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) supplier and final product manufacturer which required an amendment to the TGA submission. Completion of the TGA review was expected Q4 2020.
The TGA approval includes the supplemental API supplier and final product manufacturer which allows SUDA to supply the product at a more competitive supply price and potentially allows the Company to target additional territories.
The benefits of TGA approval are:
Dr Michael Baker commented: “The TGA submission was a combined effort by SUDA’s technical team as well as our regulatory consultant, Pharma To Market. Obtaining the approval indicates the calibre of our staff and is also a key benefit to our partners for ZolpiMist™. We are delighted by the outcome and look forward to seeing the commencement of commercial sales in the foreseeable future.”
