ViroPharma Launches Novel Campaign to Illustrate the Emotional Burden of Hereditary Angioedema
Date:12/12/2012

EXTON, Pa., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViroPharma Incorporated (NASDAQ: VPHM) today announced the launch of a new unbranded campaign focusing on moments lost to hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks to raise awareness among physicians of the emotional and psychological burden of HAE on patients' lives. HAE is a rare, severely debilitating, life-threatening genetic disorder caused by a deficiency of a human plasma protein called C1 inhibitor. People living with HAE experience physical manifestations of attacks including, swelling and pain, but much of the true burden lies in the emotional and psychological implications for patients that greatly impact the quality of their life. Visit http://www.momentsmissed.com to find out more about the emotional burden of HAE.

HAE can have a tremendous impact on a patients' mental health, daily life, and future plans. HAE attacks are highly variable and unpredictable, and many people living with HAE experience multiple attacks per month. Many patients struggle with fear of the next attack, causing a devastating psychological impact including anxiety, depression, and isolation. Approximately 50 percent of patients experience a laryngeal attack, and nearly all live in fear of having such an attack.

"Through this campaign we hope to illustrate that HAE is not just an acute clinical condition, but can also be an emotional and psychological burden to patients," said Frank Nazzario, ViroPharma's associate director, marketing. "HAE is a life altering disease that interferes with work, school, travel and social life. ViroPharma created this campaign to give a voice to patients who bear the emotional burden of HAE and to raise awareness of the moments that are missed as a result of this disease."
