FDA Grants Priority Review to Mallinckrodt's MNK-795



Depomed, Inc. announced that FDA has accepted for filing a new drug application (NDA) from Mallinckrodt for MNK-795. MNK-795 is a controlled-release oral formulation of oxycodone and acetaminophen that has been studied for the management of moderate to severe acute pain where the use of an opioid analgesic is appropriate. MNK-795 is formulated with Depomed's Acuform drug-delivery technology.

The NDA acceptance triggers a $5-million milestone payment to Depomed under a license agreement between Depomed and Mallinckrodt. Depomed is also entitled to an additional milestone payment upon approval of the NDA and high single digit royalties on net sales of MNK-795, if approved.

FDA granted the NDA a priority review, a designation given to drugs that, if approved, offer significant improvements in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment when compared to standard applications.
