BERKELEY, Calif., June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ResVita Bio, a cellular therapies startup, announces that the FDA has granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation to RVB-001 to treat Netherton Syndrome, a chronic and life-threatening genetic skin disease.
“The physical and emotional challenges of chronic skin diseases are devastating to patients, particularly children” said Amin Zargar, Chief Executive Officer of ResVita Bio. “Newborns with Netherton Syndrome face a severe lifelong disease with few treatment options that offer limited efficacy. We are motivated by the prospect to deliver meaningful improvement in the lives of these patients, and this is a significant step towards the development RVB-001 as a treatment for Netherton Syndrome.”
With the Rare Pediatric Disease Designation, if a new drug application for RVB-001 is approved, ResVita Bio may be eligible to receive a priority review voucher, which can be redeemed for priority review of any subsequent drug marketing application. The voucher can also be sold or transferred.
