BHR Pharma Files Investigational New Drug Application, Receives Orphan Drug Designation, for Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment
Date:12/8/2009

r biologics that treat a rare disease or condition affecting less than 200,000 Americans. The designation offers a number of incentives to the treatment developer. This includes a seven-year period of U.S. marketing exclusivity if the drug receives marketing authorization by the agency. Funding for clinical studies, study design assistance, waiver of FDA user fees and tax credits are additional potential incentives.

The company plans to request that the treatment be fast tracked during the regulatory approval process.

"Traumatic brain injury is a terrible condition with high rates of mortality and disability, and currently there are no drugs approved for treating these patients," said Tom MacAllister, BHR president and CEO. "We're excited about achieving the IND milestone and believe that the orphan status will help facilitate a development program with the potential to give these patients and their families hope for better quality of life."
