Congenital heart block (CHB), also known as atrioventricular block, is a rare heart block disorder in which maternal antibodies attack the impulse-generating heart muscles of fetuses and newborns. Minimizing the deterioration of heart muscles and preventing disease progression are the key treatment goals in CHB. No therapies are approved for CHB, and patients are managed with off-label drugs such as dexamethasone and IVIG, or through plasmapheresis and pacemaker implantation. In addition, no commercial pharmacotherapies are in the pipeline for CHB. A major unmet need is for effective therapies and represents a commercial opportunity for drug developers in this market.
