Date:10/22/2007

n from the FDA user fee, and FDA assistance in clinical trial design. Importantly, the Orphan Drug Act facilitates a close working relationship between regulatory agencies and companies aimed at accelerating the drug development and approval processes for treatment of rare diseases.

The European Medicines Agency is the European Union body responsible for coordinating the existing scientific resources put at its disposal by Member States for the evaluation, supervision and pharmacovigilance of medicinal products. The Agency provides the Member States and the institutions of the EU the best-possible scientific advice on any question relating to the evaluation of the quality, safety and efficacy of medicinal products for human or veterinary use referred to it in accordance with the provisions of EU legislation relating to medicinal products.

In 2001, the EMEA established the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP), and charged it with reviewing designation applications from persons or companies who intend to develop medicines for rare diseases (so-called 'orphan drugs'). Orphan Medicinal drug products are intended for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of a life-threatening or chronically debilitating condition affecting no more than five in 10,000 persons in the European Union at the time of the submission of the designation application. Orphan Medical Product Designation of SQ109 for the treatment of tuberculosis entitles Sequella to incentives such as protocol assistance (scientific advice during the product-development phase), 10-year marketing exclusivity, certain fee reductions or exemptions, and national incentives detailed in an inventory made available by the European Union, including the ability to apply for EU grants.
