FDA Approves Orphalan's CUVRIOR™ (trientine tetrahydrochloride), the first treatment for Wilson's disease in over five decades


MIAMI, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Brand Institute is proud to announce working with rare disease specialist, Orphalan, in developing the brand name CUVRIOR™, approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration on April 28, 2022.

CUVRIOR™ is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with stable Wilson's disease who are de-coppered and tolerant to penicillamine.  Wilson's disease is a rare genetic disorder that prevents the body from removing extra copper, causing copper to build up in the liver, brain, eyes, and other organs. Without treatment, high copper levels can cause life-threatening organ damage.

"The entire Brand Institute and Drug Safety Institute Team congratulates Orphalan on the FDA approval of CUVRIOR," said Brand Institute's Chairman and C.E.O., James L. Dettore.
