"We had expected an NDA submission around mid-2015 and launch mid-2016, but believe these events may be moved up by ~9 months to late 2014 and late 2015, respectively," the analyst said. "We view this development as another indicator of increasing flexibility at the FDA as well as recognition of the strength of the Study 020 data in PDP."
