The FDA has accepted Harrow Health's new drug application (NDA) for AMP-100, the company's drug candidate for ocular surface anesthesia and intraoperative pain management during ocular surgery.

The FDA has assigned the application standard review and a target action date of October 16, 2022 under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA).

The non-opioid active pharmaceutical ingredient used in AMP100, if approved, would be the first approved use of this ingredient in the U.S. ophthalmic market.

“The FDA’s acceptance of the AMP-100 NDA is a major step forward for Harrow Health Inc. and our commitment to make this patented, innovative drug candidate available," Mark L. Baum, Chief Executive Officer of Harrow Health, said in a company news release.

"We look forward to working with the FDA during the review process, and we are excited about making AMP-100, if approved, commercially available to the thousands of ophthalmologists, optometrists, hospitals, and ambulatory surgery centers we serve throughout the United States.”
