Alimera Sciences, Inc., (NASDAQ: ALIM) announced late Monday that the company's New Drug Application (NDA) for Iluvien(R) (fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal insert) has been accepted for filing and granted Priority Review status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Iluvien is Alimera's investigational, sustained drug delivery system that releases sub-microgram levels of fluocinolone acetonide for the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME). FDA Priority Review status is granted to therapies that offer major advances in treatment or provide a treatment where no adequate therapy exists. This status accelerates the standard review time from 10 months to six months. With priority review, Alimera could receive a response from the FDA in the fourth quarter regarding its NDA for Iluvien, which was submitted at the end of June 2010. Shares of the company rallied more than 4% in after-hours trading. 

Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) late Wednesday agreed to pay $55 million to the Department of Justice to settle claims it paid kickbacks to companies to win business from federal agencies.

        • Look, Democrats say, it's the Republicans who caused the financial meltdown and recession.
