Healthcare investor and TheStreet contributor Aafia Chaudhry will be your guide through today's panel, where a select group of experts will deliberate the pros and cons of Northera, an experimental treatment for neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (NOH), a chronic disease characterized by dangerously low blood pressure.
At the end of today's panel, the experts will vote on whether or not to recommend Northera's approval. Obviously, this is a very important event for Chelsea Therapeutics.
The FDA posted a review of Northera on Friday, recommending the drug not be approved at this time.
