The FDA has indicated that it intends to advise Nuvo of its decision regarding Pennsaid approvability by August 5, 2009 (the "PDUFA Date") under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act.

"We are extremely optimistic about Pennsaid's potential for approval and are continuing discussions with potential U.S. licensing partners."

About Pennsaid

Pennsaid is a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used for the treatment of osteoarthritis. Pennsaid allows the active ingredient, diclofenac, to be delivered to a specific site via the surface of the skin and thus limits complications associated with systemic delivery. According to published clinical trials, Pennsaid is as effective as the maximum daily dose of comparable oral medication at relieving pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis of the knee, as well as improving overall well-being. There are more than 27 million Americans suffering from osteoarthritis, a very painful and debilitating condition, and the United States market for this condition is estimated at US$4 billion annually.
