Rare disease has long been an important field for biotech and pharmaceutical involvement. With few competitors in the space for specific molecules and indications, brands have previously maintained significant influence on the market and pricing indications. Momentum from regulatory approval, reduced timelines, and commercial incentives enhance the value of orphan drugs. As increased orphan drugs are being added and removed from formulary, market access indications are shifting into a greater unknown.
An enhanced understanding of the commercial economics of this space is necessary for greater forecasting and success in rare disease commercialization. This Summit evaluates the economic prowess and indications for orphan drug development, patient access, market access, pricing, and reimbursement.
