ATHLONE, Ireland, Nov. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innocoll Holdings plc (Nasdaq:INNL), a global, specialty pharmaceutical company with late stage development programs targeting areas of significant unmet medical needs, today announced financial and operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2016. Using our proprietary collagen-based technology platform, we manufacture and supply a range of biodegradable and fully bioresorbable pharmaceutical products and medical devices that are precision-engineered for targeted use. "As we recently announced, Innocoll achieved an exciting, new milestone with the submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for XARACOLL for the treatment of post-surgical pain," said Tony Zook, Chief Executive Officer of Innocoll. "We anticipate an FDA acceptance of the NDA, for review, by the end of this year, and with a target Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date in late August 2017, this achievement will take us another step closer to the approval and launch of XARACOLL in potentially less than one year. In preparation, our Saal Germany based manufacturing facility has completed its construction phase, and we are on schedule to undergo pre-approval inspections soon. In addition to progressing XARACOLL, we were also pleased to announce the advancement of COLLAGUARD upon successful demonstration of medical safety in its pre-clinical studies, which cleared the way for our submission of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) this month for the prevention of post-surgical adhesions. The COLLAGUARD program is an ideal complement to XARACOLL, which we believe will position Innocoll competitively in the hospital segment. We reported earlier this month that while COGENZIA showed trends of clinical improvement as adjunct treatment of Diabetic Foot Infections (DFIs), the top-line results did not reach statistical significance for the primary endpoint. We will continue to assess all strategic options to bring these much needed new products to the market and the medical community. We plan to manage our cash runway until after the anticipated XARACOLL NDA approval, expected in the third quarter of 2017, and we feel confident about our ability to finance the commercialization of XARACOLL as well as our pipeline".
