Durect announced that the FDA has issued a Complete Response Letter (CRL) for Posidur (Saber-Bupivacaine), an investigational drug for administration into the surgical site to produce post-surgical analgesia.

Based on the FDA’s review, it has been determined that they cannot approve the NDA in its present form. The NDA does not contain sufficient information to demonstrate that Posidur is safe when used in the manner described in the proposed label. The FDA has indicated that additional clinical safety studies need to be conducted.
