AcuCort confirms good progress in ISICORT® national application process

AcuCort AB (Spotlight Stock Market: ACUC) received the Second Round Assessment Report from the Swedish MPA as planned in July. Thanks to the ambitious work answering the authority’s questions in the previous round, the Second Round Assessment Report is less extensive and no major issues can be foreseen

AcuCort received the Second Round Assessment Report from the Swedish Medical Products Agency (MPA), for the ISICORT® national approval process, as per the application timeline. Now having made an assessment of the remaining questions, with regulatory support and further evaluation by the AcuCort Board of Directors, the company can conclude that a large proportion of topics have been nicely completed and the outstanding topics should be manageable. The Second Round Reply will be submitted by AcuCort on August 11th, 2020.

“As previously communicated, we worked together with our manufacturing and regulatory partners to give good and complete answers to the First Round Assessment. Now we see that a lot of the topics are nicely completed. A smaller proportion of topics needs some further clarification, and we have some updates to the phrasing of product information to complete now in the second round. Altogether, his makes us confident about the planning ahead,” says Ann Gidner, CEO of AcuCort AB.
