Pet therapeutics company Aratana Therapeutics (NasdaqGM:PETX) reported on Thursday the submission of an administrative New Animal Drug Application (NADA) for NOCITA with the US Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), for cranial cruciate ligament surgery in dogs.
The Animal Drug User Fee Act (ADUFA) date for approval is 28 August 2016 and the company anticipates NOCITA will be commercially launched to veterinarians in the fall of 2016.
According to the company, NOCITA (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) is a local post-operative analgesia for cranial cruciate ligament surgery in dogs.
NOCITA is a long-acting, local anesthetic that lasts up to 72 hours post-surgery by releasing bupivacaine over time from multi-vesicular liposomes deposited in the tissue. The therapeutic is administered as a single dose by tissue infiltration during closure of cranial cruciate ligament surgery in dogs.
