RRD Selected as Development Partner for NIH Therapeutics for Rare and Neglected Diseases Program
Date:1/24/2011

ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RRD International, a strategy-driven biotech and pharmaceutical product development company, announced today that it has entered into a partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Therapeutics for Rare and Neglected Diseases (TRND) program as a regulatory support and development partner.

The RRD and TRND partnership will focus on two rare disease drug development projects: Hereditary Inclusion Body Myopathy (HIBM), a rare adult-onset neuromuscular disorder and Niemann Pick type C1 Disease (NPC1), a rare neurodegenerative genetic disease.  

"We look forward to combining the product development strengths of RRD with the resources of the NIH TRND program to develop important new treatments for these rare diseases," said Charles (Chuck) Finn, Ph.D., President, CEO, and Co-Founder of RRD International.

As a new congressionally mandated program, TRND is designed to advance preclinical and early clinical development of new drugs for rare and neglected diseases. The program also drives forward adoption of new technologies and treatment paradigms which improve product development efficiency for these diseases.  TRND has formed numerous collaborations with researchers from academia and industry to work on specific rare or neglected diseases.  

"TRND has established partnerships with companies and researchers to identify the most promising molecules that may result in new treatments for rare and neglected diseases," said Christopher P. Austin, M.D., director of the NIH TRND effort. "It is important to note that drug development is not a trivial process and the failure rate for any molecule or compound is high."

The program aims to speed development of new drugs that might otherwise be ignored by industry because they are too early in the development process where the failure rates are high or would not be sufficiently profitable. To make a potential compound attrac
