    Has anyone heard any news concerning Vidaza being released in pill form?


    The FDA granted priority review to a new drug application for CC-486 for the maintenance treatment of adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
    The FDA has set a prescription drug user fee act (PDUFA) goal date of September 3, 2020.


    I listened I on a webinar sponsored by the mds foundation yesterday. I believe I heard that Vidazza in pill form was not approved as it was too toxic. However, dacogen in pill form was approved.

    I believe the webinar said that dacogen in pill form was approved to treat AML. But dacogen in pill form was NOT approved to treat low-risk MDS due to toxicity. I hope my understanding was correct and vidaza’s review is still in progress ?
