Boston (DbTechNo) - The FDA (Food and Drug Administration ) have just approved a drug to treat infantile spasms in children.

The drug, Sabril is made by H Lundbeck A/S and is approved for children as young as 2 and is also approved for use by adults.

Sabril is the first drug to be approved in the US for treating infantile spasms.

Infantile spasms generally present during the first 8 months of life and can be very hard to handle due to their frequency.

The drug is already approved in other countries to treat the condition.

It will however come with a blackbox warning because of vision problems that have been documented in clinical studies of it.
