Amarin (AMRN) says the FDA's Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products has delayed a decision on the reinstatement of the ANCHOR SPA.

Although the company says that "based on dialogue with DMEP, [it] does not expect the delay to be for a significant period of time ... there can be no assurance that AMRN will be successful." (PR)
