The FDA has rejected a submission from Phoenix Biotechnology to market oleandrin as a dietary supplement. 

Phoenix Biotechnology submitted oleandrin to the FDA to be approved as a supplement on 2 June. The FDA response letter was sent on 14 August and published last week, saying that as the company had already tested oleandrin as a potential prescription drug it could not seek permission to sell it as a supplement at the same time.
