The PDUFA Date for GILENIA (fingolimod) is September 21, 2010.  This Novartis drug for the treatment of multiple sclerosis was reviewed by the FDA’s Advisory Committee in June of this year and received an overwhelmingly positive endorsement.  There is little reason to believe that the FDA won’t be concurring with the Committee’s recommendation and approving this drug.
