SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Teikoku Pharma USA, Inc., an international specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for review the New Drug Application (NDA) for a new weekly transdermal patch of Aricept®, a leading medication for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

The company developed the weekly Aricept(r) patch based on a license agreement executed between Teikoku Pharma USA, Inc. and Eisai Co., Ltd. (Eisai) in February 2009.
