Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases Conference


London, United Kingdom

The market for rare disease products  is continuously  growing, expecting to reach $176 billion by 2020, with a CGR of 10.5% just for orphan drugs - this is twice the growth rate of the overall prescription drug market (5.3% CGR from 2014-2020). Explanations for this include the arising interest for pharmaceutical companies, primarily  for  underlying benefits, including the potential discovery of mechanisms for more common diseases, and the involvement of many smaller biotechnology start up companies who are more focused on rare diseases.

Following this, we are proud to announce our 9th Annual Orphan Drugs and Rare Diseases conference, aiming  to bring together solution providers, biotechnology companies, clinical researchers, regulatory professionals and charity leaders together to discuss possible ways to accelerative orphan drug development and access to rare disease patients, including the introduction of recent technologies and products to help aid the access of  orphan drugs.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference this October.

Early registration is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.
