Dova is a pharmaceutical company focused on acquiring, developing, and commercializing drug candidates for rare diseases where there is a high unmet need, with an initial focus on addressing thrombocytopenia. Dova's lead drug product, Avatrombopag, indicated for the treatment of thrombocytopenia in adult patients with chronic liver disease scheduled to undergo a procedure, was US FDA approved in May 2018 and subsequently launched in the US commercial market in June 2018.
Furthermore, in October 2018 the FDA accepted our sNDA for treatment of thrombocytopenia in adult patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) who have had an insufficient response to a previous treatment, with a PDUFA goal date of June 30, 2019. We are also conducting a Phase 3 trial in chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia (CIT). We expect to report results for the primary and select secondary endpoints from this trial in the first half of 2020.
