Nationally Recognized Glenveigh Medical Announces Orphan Drug Designation for Treatment for Severe Preeclampsia and Eclampsia
Date:2/14/2012

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Glenveigh Medical  announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted its request for orphan drug designation for a potential new therapy to treat severe preeclampsia and eclampsia. The compound, digoxin immune fab (ovine), is an existing biologic approved for use in cases of digoxin toxicity.

Preeclampsia is a condition in pregnant women that is characterized by high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.
