Event to Highlight Progress in Research, Advocacy and New Treatments

WASHINGTON, May 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) will honor two trailblazing scientists, a pioneering patient organization, and five companies that have brought innovative new treatments to market for rare diseases at the 2010 NORD Partners in Progress Gala at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington DC on Tuesday, May 18.

The NORD Gala is an annual event at which researchers and others are honored for improving the lives of people with rare diseases.  NORD represents the nearly 30 million Americans who have rare diseases.

"We are honored to have this opportunity to pay tribute to pioneers in patient advocacy, research, and the development of critically needed therapies," said NORD President and CEO Peter L. Saltonstall.  "Our 2010 honorees have demonstrated compassion and concern for an underserved community -- the one in 10 Americans who have rare diseases.  We are proud to honor these dedicated individuals and organizations for their efforts toward saving lives and improving quality of life."

Actress Patricia Richardson, of TV's Home Improvement, Strong Medicine and The West Wing, will emcee the Gala.  More than 500 guests from patient organizations, academic research centers, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and biopharmaceutical companies will attend.

In the United States, a disease is considered rare if it affects fewer than 200,000 Americans.  According to
