New ADHD drug edges closer to launch

US company Cephalon says it has received an approvable letter from the US Food and Drug Administration for a new drug to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents. The drug, which would be sold in the US under the brand name Sparlon, would be co-marketed with a unit of Johnson & Johnson. Dr Chris Kratochvil, an associate psychiatry professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Centre said that although other ADHD drugs such as Novartis' Ritalin and Shire's Adderall were effective overall, doctors needed additional options because not all drugs were effective in individual patients.
