In the report, the analyst notes:

"VVUS last week said U.S. health regulators asked the Company to explore the feasibility of running an analysis of data from existing health-care databases to see if there is a link between women taking the drug topiramate and the incidence of cleft lip or palate in their children. VVUS shares dropped on the news, dropping 16.20%.

" VVUS has previously expressed confidence in its data analyses to address safety concerns. It said the timing of the planned resubmission of Qnexa will be determined after agreement with the FDA is reached on the feasibility assessment."
