About the Lawsuit

On February 23, 2016, PTC disclosed that it has received a Refuse to File letter from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding PTC's New Drug Application (NDA) for Translarna for the treatment of muscular dystrophy. PTC further disclosed that the FDA's Refuse to File letter stated "that the application was not sufficiently complete to permit a substantive review."
