Soleno Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company researching innovative therapies for the treatment of uncommon disorders, announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Orphan Drug Designation to its investigational drug, DCCR (diazoxide choline) Extended-Release tablets, for the treatment of Glycogen Storage Disease 1a (GSD), also known as von Gierke disease.
Anish Bhatnagar, CEO of Soleno Therapeutics, believes that providing the orphan drug designation for the DCCR program in an additional indication, GSD 1a, represents an important milestone for the company. The mechanism of action of DCCR, which has the potential to regulate hypoglycemia, may provide a significant treatment option for GSD 1a.
