FURTHER QUESTIONS RELATED TO FDA PERMIT APPLICATION
Icare Finland Oy, a subsidiary of Revenio Group, submitted in September a sales permit application - for its HOME tonometer for monitoring eye pressure at home - to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Dialogue between the parties is an essential part of the process and Icare has received a list of further questions from the FDA. According to the sales permit process, the company has 180 days to submit answers to the presented questions. The questions are routine questions related to clarifications and further analyses. The company targets to answer the questions as soon as possible, with precision.
Revenio cannot estimate accurately when the FDA decision will be obtained. The Corporation is still prepared that the permit would be granted during the year 2016.
The Icare HOME tonometer has been granted a sales permit in all European countries as well as Australia, Japan, Canada and China.
Further information about the FDA permit application process is available on its website.
