Chelsea Therapeutics said Monday its experimental drug Northera was "both safe and very well tolerated," according to preliminary analyses of phase III trial data.

Treatment with Northera provided "clinically meaningful and statistically significant improvement" patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, a disease characterized by a chronic drop in blood pressure upon standing, Chelsea said in a statement.
