VIVUS, Inc. Announces Operational Update

VIVUS Inc. announced an operational update, including certain key corporate decisions and plans regarding Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate extended-release) capsules CIV. These plans include further investments in high-value, consumer-focused digital media projects in support of obesity education and Qsymia, and focusing the Qsymia field sales organization of approximately 100 territories on the most productive target areas. Management will continue discussions with US and EU regulatory authorities regarding Qsymia development and potential cost-saving measures related to the planned cardiovascular outcomes trial (CVOT), and will aim to further improve corporate efficiency and control costs while maintaining and extending the value of avanafil. The company plans to discuss with U.S. regulatory authorities and key consultants potential cost-saving alternatives with respect to the Qsymia CVOT, known as AQCLAIM. The company is also in the process of pursuing approval for Qsymia in the EU and other key countries, as well as new indications in other chronic diseases such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and type 2 diabetes.
