U.S. Food & Drug Administration Approval of Prior Approval Supplement Enables Transfer of Adzenys Production to Contract Manufacturer in 2023
Upon Completion of Manufacturing Transfer of Adzenys XR-ODT and Cotempla XR-ODT, Company Expects to Improve ADHD Product Margins by an Estimated 15%
ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2023 / Aytu BioPharma, Inc. (the "Company" or "Aytu") (NASDAQ:AYTU), a commercial stage pharmaceutical and consumer health company providing pediatric-focused prescription drugs and cost-effective consumer health solutions, received U.S. Food & Drug Administration ("FDA") approval of the Adzenys XR-ODT® ("Adzenys") Prior Approval Supplement ("PAS"). This approval enables the transfer of manufacturing of Adzenys to the Company's third-party manufacturer.
Additionally, the Cotempla XR-ODT® ("Cotempla") bioequivalence study has been successfully completed. Accordingly, the Company expects to submit the Cotempla site transfer PAS to the FDA in the middle of calendar 2023, with approval expected thereafter. The Company expects a six-month review of the PAS, which would enable FDA approval by late calendar 2023 or early calendar 2024.
"I'm pleased to report these two important milestones as we work to improve the margins of our ADHD products by transferring the manufacturing of our ADHD brands to a contract manufacturer," commented Josh Disbrow, Aytu's Chief Executive Officer. "Our team has done a tremendous job in advancing the site transfer of these important ADHD brands, and I am grateful for the team's efforts throughout this extensive operational and regulatory process. With both milestones now achieved, we have greater visibility into the timing of the site transfer and expect to begin manufacturing Adzenys and Cotempla at the contract manufacturer's site in late 2023 and early 2024, respectively. Thus, we expect to begin realizing margin improvement for the ADHD brands starting in early calendar 2024. As we have communicated, upon the completion of the site transfers of both products and exiting the Grand Prairie, Texas facility, we expect to realize an estimated 15% margin improvement of the ADHD brands."
