Rare diseases affect more than 350 million people worldwide, equating to 1/10 people in the United States. Approximately 50% of those suffering from a rare disease are children, 30% of whom will not live to see their fifth birthday. Of the more than 7,000 rare diseases identified, 95% lack an FDA-approved drug or therapeutic.

Orphan drug development represents a growing segment of the pharmaceutical industry’s drug development pipeline. It is estimated that worldwide prescription drug sales will grow 6.5% annually through the year 2022. Industry analysts project 32% of the increase in sales will be attributable to orphan drugs, equating to an estimated $95 billion market cap. (EvaluatePharma)

“The focus on rare disease innovation and investment continues to increase at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference and within the life sciences sector. This focus is creating increased opportunities for the development of rare disease therapies, bringing hope to millions of rare disease patients around the world,” comments Nicole Boice, Founder and CEO of Global Genes. “This is an important time for the rare community. Patient advocates are becoming active partners in progress, and helping to advance rare disease drug development like never before.”
