Advances for Rare Diseases and Orphan Products
In 2012, a third of the drugs approved by the FDA had orphan designation.
This session will examine the current research efforts and discuss the
role of the patient community, the FDA, the NIH and the drug industry in
research priorities and challenges.
for Rare Disease Treatments
This symposium will review various aspects of therapy development for rare
and orphan diseases. The difficulties and trade-offs in developing a
comprehensive patient registry to assess natural disease progression and
treatment effects will be highlighted using pemphigoid as a case example.
and Repurposing Drugs: Challenges and Opportunities
Drug rescue and repurposing presents an opportunity to spur the drug
development process by building upon previous research and development
efforts. However, this strategy also has challenges, particularly related
to treatments for rare and orphan diseases.
