The FDA’s review of AMX0035 for the March 2022 AdComm meeting and a new review for the September 2022 AdComm meeting both found the NDA did not provide enough evidence to support approval.

The review suggested that the 48-week, 600 patient, Phase III, PHOENIX trial should have data by late 2023 or early 2024 would give a better indication of the affect of AMX0035 on ALS.
