Revance Provides Regulatory Update on DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection for the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Glabellar (Frown) Lines
Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: RVNC), a biotechnology company focused on innovative aesthetic and therapeutic offerings, today announced that the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a Complete Response Letter, or CRL, regarding the Biologics License Application (BLA) for DaxibotulinumtoxinA for Injection, for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar (frown) lines.
In a communication received on October 15, the FDA has determined it is unable to approve the BLA in its present form, and indicated that there are deficiencies related to the FDA’s onsite inspection at Revance’s manufacturing facility. Revance plans to request a Type A meeting with the FDA as soon as possible to address the deficiencies raised. No other deficiencies were identified in the CRL.
“We are very disappointed by this unanticipated response from the FDA and are seeking further clarity from the agency. We remain committed to bringing our next-generation neuromodulator product to market in both aesthetic and therapeutic indications,” said Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer.
