A decision was originally expected by February 25, 2009, for the Company's submission of its Ampligen(r) NDA, which is designated as an Orphan Drug for the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which has no FDA approved treatments on the market. Ampligen(r) is also authorized for Emergency (compassionate) Cost Recovery Sales Authorization by the FDA and has a "promising" designation by the Agency on Health Research Quality (AHRQ): "Ampligen(r), an investigational drug that is not approved by the FDA, given intravenously to severely debilitated patients, yielded the most promising results." The extended user fee goal date is now May 25th, 2009.
