AstraZeneca Submits sNDA for SEROQUEL XR(TM) for the Treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder - a First for the Atypical Antipsychotic Class of Medicines
Date:5/8/2008

WILMINGTON, Del., May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) today announced the submission of a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for SEROQUEL XR(TM) (quetiapine fumarate) Extended-Release Tablets to seek approval for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), including maintenance of antianxiety effect.

The GAD submission is based on four Phase III efficacy and safety studies. Three short-term, multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled studies (Studies 9, 10, and 11) compared the safety and efficacy of SEROQUEL XR at doses of 50 mg, 150 mg and 300 mg to placebo for eight weeks in outpatients with GAD. Active controls were also used in Study 10 (escitalopram 10 mg daily) and Study 11 (paroxetine 20 mg daily). These short-
