Aratana Therapeutics Announces Positive Results for AT-003

Results from the study in client-owned cats undergoing an elective onychectomy showed bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension met protocol-defined efficacy success criteria, which were statistically significant (p < 0.05). Separately, in June, the Company submitted results from the pivotal safety study to FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) for AT-003 in cats. Data from both studies will be used to support an application for approval of the therapeutic in cats.

In August 2016, Aratana was granted approval from CVM for NOCITA® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) for local post-operative analgesia for cranial cruciate ligament surgery in dogs.
