Indevus Pharmaceuticals has received an approvable letter from the FDA for Valstar, a sterile solution of valrubicin for intravesical instillation. Valstar is the only product approved by the FDA for therapy of bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG)-refractory carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the urinary bladder.
