Revance Therapeutics announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Orphan Drug Designation to RT002 (daxibotulinumtoxinA for injection) to treat adults with cervical dystonia.

Phase 2 clinical data showed RT002 was safe and well-tolerated while providing a long-lasting improvement of patients’ symptoms. Botulinum toxins work by blocking communication between the nerve and muscle, which may alleviate abnormal movements and postures.
