'Obtaining Fast Track designation highlights the critical need for non-invasive, safe and effective treatment options for women at risk of HDFN. In addition, there is a broad range of rare and severe allo and autoantibody disorders in maternal fetal medicine that could benefit from the activity of nipocalimab,' said Craig Wheeler, President and Chief Executive Officer of Momenta Pharmaceuticals.
A review was conducted of the medical history, obstetric history (Including any still births, abortions, medical terminations of pregnancy and cases of HDFN among siblings) and any past blood transfusions of the alloimmunised patients.
However, antibodies to LW are not considered clinically significant and have not been implicated in HTR or HDFN. Antibodies to Scianna (anti-Scl and anti-Sc2) are not thought to be implicated in HTR or HDFN, but mild cases of HDFN have been reported.
The RHD zygosity assignment has been proved to be a useful diagnostic tool in the clinical management of HDFN. Here, determination of homozygous (RHD/ RHD) fathers would give confidence (assuming paternity) of prenatal prediction of D-positive fetuses and signal where further monitoring or administration of prophylactic anti-D maybe required.
