Oh boy, another day, another snag. There goes our Christmas bonus, dang.


It’s been a gut wrenching couple years for shareholders. Is it big payoff time or another beatdown, in the next of couple weeks. Time will tell.

Ardelyx Provides Update on FDA.

(Dec 16th) FDA says it needs a “few more” weeks, you know the holidays, New Years and all that..

Earlier today, Peter Stein , M.D., Director of the Office of New Drugs, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), requested a meeting with Ardelyx to discuss the status of his review of the appeal. After a productive conversation, Dr. Stein communicated that the FDA is finalizing the response and may require up to a few more weeks to do so. Ardelyx will communicate the response to the appeal once it has been received from the FDA.

As a reminder they failed in July of 2021, appeal was denied the following February and then low-and-behold, the FDA advisory committee say “we like it.”
