    Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders in children. Dravet syndrome, also known as Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy, is a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy and for which there is currently no cure.

    Initial seizures are most often prolonged events and in the second year of life other seizure types begin to emerge. All seizure types are remarkably resistant to medical therapy and the prognosis for Dravet syndrome is poor.

    Individuals with Dravet syndrome face a higher incidence of SUDEP (sudden unexplained death in epilepsy) and have associated co-morbid conditions, which also need to be properly managed. Children with Dravet syndrome do not outgrow this condition and it affects every aspect of their daily lives.

    GWPH reported that the FDA has granted Fast Track designation to the company's investigational cannabidiol (NYSE:CBD) product, Epidiolex(NYSE:R), in the treatment of Dravet syndrome.

    FDA's Fast Track program facilitates the development and review of drugs intended to treat serious conditions and fill an unmet medical need. A drug development program with Fast Track designation is afforded greater access to the FDA for the purpose of expediting the drug's development, review and potential approval to get important new drugs to the patient earlier.

    GWPH is a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing novel therapeutics from its proprietary cannabinoid product platform in a broad range of disease areas.
