Item 8.01    Other Events.
On October 13, 2022, Travere Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that following late-cycle review interactions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Company expects the previously assigned Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date of November 17, 2022 for its New Drug Application (NDA) under Subpart H for accelerated approval of sparsentan for the treatment of IgA nephropathy to be extended by three months.

As part of its late-cycle review, the FDA has requested that the Company update its proposed Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategy (REMS) to include liver monitoring for sparsentan consistent with certain other approved products in the endothelin receptor antagonist class. The Company anticipates submitting an updated REMS plan in the coming days. Based upon feedback from the FDA, the updated submission is likely to be considered a major amendment to the NDA which is expected to result in a three-month extension of the PDUFA target action date to allow sufficient time to review the information. No additional clinical data or studies have been requested as part of the application review process.

Forward-Looking Statements

This report contains "forward-looking statements" as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Without limiting the foregoing, these statements are often identified by the words “likely to be, "anticipates", "expects" or similar expressions. In addition, expressions of our strategies, intentions or plans are also forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, references to: the Company’s expectation that the updated submission will be considered a major amendment to the NDA and that the PDUFA target action date will be extended by three months and the Company’s anticipated timing for submitting an updated REMS plan. Such forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and involve inherent risks and uncertainties, including factors that could delay, divert or change any of them, and could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from current expectations. No forward-looking statement can be guaranteed. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements are risks and uncertainties associated with the regulatory review and approval process. Specifically, the Company faces the risk that the Phase 3 PROTECT Study of sparsentan in IgAN will not demonstrate that sparsentan is safe or effective or serve as the basis for accelerated approval of sparsentan as planned; and the risk that sparsentan will not be approved for efficacy, safety, regulatory or other reasons. There is no guarantee that the updated PDUFA target date, once assigned by the FDA, will be three months from the original PDUFA target action date or that the review process for the sparsentan IgAN NDA will remain on track for the FDA’s updated target action date, once assigned, or that the FDA will grant accelerated approval of sparsentan for IgAN within the assigned target action date, or at all. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements as there are important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements, many of which are beyond our control. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Investors are referred to the full discussion of risks and uncertainties as included under the “Risk Factors” heading of the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 4, 2022, and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
