New Report Highlights Keys to European Market Access for Orphan Drugs

Orphan Drugs in Europe: Pricing, Reimbursement, Funding & Market Access, 2011 Edition is a fully revised and greatly enlarged version of the best-selling 2008 report, and Don Macarthur’s fifth major title on orphan drugs.

 
PRLog - Jul. 7, 2011 - Minneapolis -- The cost of treating rare disease in an age when austerity measures are hitting total healthcare funding across Europe is a highly controversial, even emotive subject. There is a clear and pressing clinical need, a strong patient voice and the treatments themselves sometimes offer the only hope. But is this enough to assure premium prices and special status in an era of budget limitations, and growing demands for evidence of clinical and cost effectiveness?

The orphan drug Regulation 141/2000, resulting in 724 designated products and 62 marketing approvals in the first 10 years, has certainly been one of the most successful legislative measures by the EU. Encouraging development and accelerating regulatory approval are very important, but alone do not ensure orphan drugs are actually available for use. Rare disease patients need timely access to therapies that are fully funded by social health insurance/national health services. Hurdles are found at national, regional and local level. Discover what these are and the strategies employed by successful orphan drug companies.

Orphan Drugs in Europe: Pricing, Reimbursement, Funding & Market Access, 2011 Edition is a fully revised and greatly enlarged version of the best-selling 2008 report, and Don Macarthur’s fifth major title on orphan drugs.
