Henderson, Nevada – April 27, 2022 – United Health Products, Inc. (OTCPK: UEEC), (UHP) today provided an update on its FDA regulatory process and other matters.
As previously disclosed in the company’s Form 10-K, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) requested in late January 2022 that i) the responses submitted by UHP to previous FDA questions be incorporated into its full Premarket Approval (PMA) application and ii) that the application be reformatted to conform to the FDA’s “eSubmitter” online format. On April 20, 2022, UHP completed these tasks and there are currently no requests outstanding from the FDA. As is customary, the company and its regulatory consultant have requested a meeting within the next 30 days with the committee responsible for reviewing its PMA application. There can be no assurance that the PMA application will be approved.
