Juxtapid, a drug that is used to treat high cholesterol has been approved by the FDA recently. This drug mainly helps to cure a rare genetic disease.

Katherine Wilemon who is the President at the FH Foundation says that the approval of Juxtapid by the FDA will be really good for HoFH patients and their families. She also said, "New treatments, combined with further understanding and awareness of this disease, can bring much needed hope to the HoFH community."

 Varizig, a drug that has now been approved by the FDA is used to reduce the symptoms of Chicken Pox. Although most people become immune to the virus that causes Chicken Pox after they are affected, this drug just helps to reduce the symptoms.

The FDA has also asked consumers to be cautious about the presence of counterfeit drugs in the market. It is important to evolve effective trademark systems to help drug purchasers to have an assurance that they are purchasing authentic drugs.
