OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTSOn July 29, 2013, Vanda announced that the FDA accepted the filing of and granted a priority review classification to Vanda's NDA for tasimelteon, a circadian regulator for the treatment of Non-24 in the totally blind. Currently, there is no approved treatment for Non-24 and tasimelteon has the potential to address this unmet medical need. The FDA has scheduled a Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee Meeting on November 14, 2013, for the review of Vanda's NDA for tasimelteon, proposed trade name HETLIOZ™, for the treatment of Non-24. The FDA determined the action target date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA-V) for tasimelteon to be January 31, 2014.
Vanda recorded third quarter 2013 revenue of $8.7 million including $6.7 million in licensing revenue related to the amortization of the upfront payment received from Novartis for U.S. and Canadian commercial rights to Fanapt® and Fanapt® royalties of $2.0 million. Fanapt® prescriptions, as reported by IMS, were approximately 43,600 for the third quarter of 2013. This represents a 13% increase over third quarter 2012 prescriptions and a 5% increase versus second quarter 2013 prescriptions.2013 FINANCIAL GUIDANCE2013 expenses are expected to reflect lower research and development spending as compared to 2012 and an increase in commercial spending.
