Initiating Rare Disease Drug Discovery Projects
Date:9/19/2012

e and in identifying potential patients for clinical studies.Many opportunities remain to develop treatments for untreated rare diseases. However, ultra rare diseases with high infant mortality present major challenges.Can more than one drug be a commercial success for treating rare indications?What are the best ways of identifying patients for recruitment into clinical trials?Why it is necessary to consider logistic issues in planning clinical studies?What are the requirements for a clinical candidate to treat a rare disease?What factors determine whether a small-molecule or biologic strategy is most suitable?
