Labopharm appeals FDA's decision on once-daily tramadol
Date:10/15/2007

LAVAL, QC, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Labopharm Inc. (TSX: DDS; NASDAQ: DDSS) today announced that it has initiated the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s Formal Dispute Resolution process, appealing the Agency's decision regarding the Company's once-daily formulation of tramadol. Labopharm received a second Approvable Letter from the FDA for its once-daily formulation of tramadol in May of this year. The Company firmly believes it has met the statutory standards for approval of its once-daily tramadol formulation.

About the FDA's Formal Dispute Resolution Process

FDA regulations provide a mechanism for those seeking regulatory approval of a drug product through a New Drug Application (NDA) to obtain formal review of any Agency decision through a Formal Dispute Resolution process by raising the matter with the supervisor of the employee who made the decision. If the issue is not resolved at the primary supervisory level, the applicant may request that the matter be reviewed at the next higher supervisory level. This process may continue through the Agency's chain of command, through the Centers to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs. The Formal Dispute Resolution process exists to encourage open, prompt discussion of scientific (including medical) disputes and procedural (including administrative) disputes that arise during the drug development, new drug review, generic drug review, and post-marketing oversight processes.
