Innovative Med Concepts Announces Receipt of FDA Fast Track Designation for IMC-1, a Novel Treatment for Fibromyalgia
Date:1/28/2016

TUSCALOOSA, Ala., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Med Concepts, LLC, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Fast Track Designation to the development of IMC-1 for the treatment of fibromyalgia.  IMC-1 previously completed a randomized, double-blinded, placebo controlled Phase II study (PRID-201), showing that IMC-1 appears to have promise treating the pain and other symptoms of fibromyalgia.

William Pridgen, M.D., Founder and CEO of Innovative Med Concepts, stated,  "We are pleased that the FDA has granted Fast Track status to IMC-1, as it demonstrates their recognition of this condition as a significant unmet medical need.  IMC-1 has a novel mechanism of action designed to suppress chronic tissue-resident herpes virus, which may have a role in triggering or maintaining symptoms of fibromyalgia.  IMC-1 is a fixed-dose combination using proprietary doses of famciclovir, an anti-viral nucleoside analog, and celecoxib, a COX-2 inhibitor that also possesses unique anti-viral activity.  Suppressing latent herpes viruses may significantly improve fibromyalgia related symptoms.  We are currently meeting the development requirements to begin Phase III trials with IMC-1 in 2017."

Fast Track designation is a process designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of drugs to treat serious diseases.  In order to receive Fast Track designation, a product must demonstrate the potential to address an unmet medical need in a serious condition.  Companies granted Fast Track designation benefit from greater access to, and more frequent communications with, the FDA throughout the drug development or review process and are allowed to submit New Drug Applications (NDA) on a rolling basis.  In addition, Fast Track designation products are eligible for potential accelerated approval and priority review.
