Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases

19th October to 20th October 2015, London, United Kingdom



Several thousand different types of rare diseases and disorders exist, with more being discovered each day. As a result, in recent years, the interest for rare diseases has grown throughout the entire medical community. However, the road to an approved orphan drug is a long, challenging and costly one with many challenges on the way including regulatory, financial, sustainability and pricing and reimbursement issues. 



Returning for its fourth year and following on from the major success of previous events, SMi are proud to present the 4th annual Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases Conference, 19th – 20th October 2015, London, UK. Through a series of interactive presentations and panel discussions, join us and learn how payers, pharmaceutical, biotech, patient organisations and academia are structuring to participate in and leverage the growing orphan market.

Key topics include:

• Development of ultra-orphan drugs to prevent, diagnose and treat rare diseases
• Creating strategies for overcoming the challenges for reimbursement of orphan and ultra orphan drugs
• Discover how gene therapy is a very real factor in clinical trials
• Creating workable partnerships for future development of drugs

And much more!
