Roche Holding subsidiary Hoffmann-La Roche and Trimeris said they are withdrawing their FDA application to market the Biojector 2000 needle-free injection device in combination with HIV drug Fuzeon, following a comprehensive evaluation of a clinical trial and a delay in getting regulatory approval. The companies believe the device isn't an ideal substitute for the delivery of the drug among "all treatment-experienced patients" despite its potential benefits, a Roche official said.
