Orphan drugs have paved theway for the treatment of the many unmet clinical and therapeuticneeds of patientswith orphan and rare diseases such as Gaucher’s disease, Pompe disease, cystic fibrosis, Hunter syndrome, tuberous sclerosis complex and chronic myelogenous leukemia. These diseases, which have different globaldefinitions depending on theirprevalence in the general population, have gained significant attention since the approval of the 1983 OrphanDrug Act (ODA) in the U.S. and the formation of organizations such as the National Organization forRare Diseases (NORD) in 1983 and the EuropeanOrganization forRare Diseases (EURORDIS) in 1997. These developments have spurred
pharmaceutical and biotech companies such as Roche,Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson&Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb,Merck& Co, Pfizer, Shire and others to invest in and develop orphan and rare disease therapies and drugs.
