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

tive to private partners in order to get a treatment to patients, TRND advances a potential compound through the drug development process to the point where it can be tested in people. TRND provides all aspects of preclinical development needed to turn promising compounds into potential medicines ready for clinical evaluation.

"This partnership is another validation of our development philosophy and the success we've achieved with other products," said Scott Tarrant, Chief Business Officer at RRD International. "Work on these rare diseases will demonstrate the flexibility of our asset-centric model and how RRD efficiently drives development while mitigating cost and risk factors which, historically, have served as barriers to new therapies for rare and neglected diseases."

The TRND program will collaborate with academic organizations, foundations, biotechs, and pharmaceutical companies to develop clinical candidate drugs that can be adopted by biopharma for completion of clinical development and FDA approval.  In addition to individual drug development projects, TRND is developing technologies and paradigms to reduce the very high risks and cost of drug development. The ultimate goal is to "de-risk" rare and neglected disease drug development by accomplishing lead optimization through an FDA Investigational New Drug (IND) application and, when needed, proof-of-concept in human studies.
