Availability: Immediately available upon ordering.
Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment.
Medicines for the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of rare diseases have become known as ‘orphan drugs’ because they are commercially unattractive. Development of such products is successfully encouraged through incentives offered by regulatory authorities. To qualify for important incentives, the sponsor of a drug must gain ‘orphan designation’ for its use in an indication. This course describes the requirements for orphan designation and how to apply for it in the USA and the European Economic Area.
The procedures for making an application are detailed, that includes the acquisition of protocol assistance and collection of supporting data. In Europe, the Centralized Procedure is now the mandatory method to gain authorization for marketing of orphan products. This class serves as a fully utilitarian reference tool to help stay informed as to the impact of the new regulatory requirements.
A passing grade of 75% or more is required. Once all course requirements have been satisfied, a certificate of completion is immediately available. Course takers can attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed, in order to achieve a passing grade.

In this session we describe the US legal framework for orphan drug designation and specify the incentives offered. We set out the criteria for orphan designation and how they should be satisfied. We list the contents of an application for designation and outline how to apply. Finally we identify the sponsor’s obligations and options after designation.

We set out the criteria for orphan designation and how they should be satisfied.
