MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — The Food and Drug Administration has accepted a regulatory approval application for a drug made by Vivus for treating erectile dysfunction.
Vivus said it expected the Food and Drug Administration to complete its review of the application for avanafil by April 29, 2012.
"We are pleased with FDA's acceptance of our NDA," Vivus president Peter Tam said. "If approved, avanafil could be a valuable treatment alternative for the 18 million men in the United States that suffer from ED."
