EASTBOURNE, England, February 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Daval International, the emerging life sciences company focused on the development of novel treatments for serious unmet medical needs, today announced receipt of Orphan Drug Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Office of Orphan Products Development, for AIMSPRO® for the treatment of systemic sclerosis (scleroderma).
"The granting of Daval's request for Orphan Drug Designation represents a significant milestone in the development of AIMSPRO," said James Shotton, Daval's Chief Executive Officer "and should prove helpful in our dialogue with the FDA as the compound's development progresses. It is Daval's intention to find ways to continue the development of AIMSPRO using the benefits conferred by gaining Orphan Drug designation. Further, this designation alerts the FDA that we are dedicated to bringing a better therapy to patients suffering with scleroderma."
The Orphan Drug Act (ODA) provides for granting special status to a product to treat a rare disease or condition upon request of a sponsor and if the disease or condition for which the drug is intended affects fewer than 200,000 people in the United States. In addition, the combination of the product to treat the rare disease or condition must meet strict certain criteria. The granting of Orphan designation qualifies the sponsor of the product for a tax credit during the course of the development of the product, waiver of the prescription drug user fee and seven years of marketing exclusivity in the US for the drug or biologic upon FDA approval.
AIMSPRO recently completed a Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Phase II Clinical Study evaluating its safety and tolerability given as a monotherapy to patients with Late Stage Established Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis (diffuse scleroderma) and which was published in the globally renowned Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases journal, the EULAR journal.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
