About EG-1962
EG-1962 is a novel polymeric nimodipine microparticle suspended in a diluent of hyaluronic acid that utilizes Edge Therapeutics’ proprietary PrecisaTM development platform designed to improve patient outcomes following an aSAH. EG-1962 has been granted orphan drug designation and Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage, and orphan drug designation by the European Commission (EC) for the treatment of patients with aSAH. 

About aSAH                                               
An aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage is a brain hemorrhage after which blood from a ruptured aneurysm enters the subarachnoid space, the area between the middle and deepest protective layers of the brain. Approximately 600,000 individuals worldwide suffer an aSAH annually. In the U.S., approximately 35,000 aSAH patients, with an average age of 52, arrive alive at the hospital each year, and approximately 75 percent of these patients die or suffer permanent brain damage.
