7th Annual CBI Rare Disease and Orphan Drug Leadership Congress
Date: 18–19 July, 2012
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Ensure Access to Orphan Drug Therapies through Collaborative Efforts with Government, Researchers and Patient Groups
In 2012, CBI is proud to present its 7th Annual Rare Disease and Orphan Drug Leadership Congress at a critical time for this community. Advocates of the 5,800 rare diseases that have no commercialized treatments are petitioning Congress to update the Orphan Drug Act of 1983. There is needed flexibility within clinical trial design to support smaller populations. Plus, there is continued pressure on payers to reimburse these treatments.
- Important Topics in 2012 Include:
- Proposed ULTRA Bill
- FDA/EMA Initiatives
- Pricing / Reimbursement Issues
- Partnerships with Patient Advocacy Groups
- Social Media
