3 Orphan drug regulation United States: Orphan Drug Act (1983)Europe (2000)ODA : tgv thalidomide schandaal (eind jaren 50). Nood om meer efficacy aan te tonen => cost van development stijgt meer focus op grote populations ODA ontstaan om die trend tegen te gaanin de tien jaar voor de regulation: US: slechts 10 en EU: slechts 8 GMen voor zeldzame ziekten
4 Incentives Market exclusivity for a period of 10 years protects against a ‘similar’ drug being authorized in the EU for the same therapeutic indicationProtocol and scientific assistancewrt clinical and non-clinical aspects of drug developmentAccess to the centralized registration procedureAccess to EU-funded researchIncentives undertaken on a national level+ Fee reductionssuch as full or partial EMA fee waivers3 uitzonderingen op market exclusivity: first, the sponsor’s consent; second, a lack of supply; third, if a new product, although similar, could be demonstrated to be ‘clinically superior’ — that is, “safer, more effective or otherwise clinically superior” to the product already on the market.Protocol assistance : wrt clinical and non-clinical aspects of drug developmentfee waivers (depending on the size of the sponsor)
5 Criteria for orphan designation (Art. 3) A medicinal product intended for the diagnosis, prevention or treatment of a life-threatening or chronically debilitating condition1° that affects not more that 5 in people in the Community(prevalence criterion)OR2° that without incentives it would be unlikely to generate sufficient return the justify the investment(return on investment criterion)There is no satisfactory method of diagnosis, prevention or treatment of the condition.ORIf such a method does exist, that the medicinal product will be of significant benefit to those affected.AND
6 Current status Orphan designations (Westermark, 2011) Note : As there is a time lag between the applications being submitted and the Committee of Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) opinion being issued, and between the COMP opinion being issued and the decision being made by the European Commission (EC), the number of submissions and the number of decisions in a given year may not completely correspond. It should also be noted that 74 products in total have been removed from the register at the request of sponsors — either for administrative reasons or when development was discontinued.
7 Current status Market authorizations 60 authorized orphan drugs (October 2011)OPM: diegene die eerste OD status kregen ( ): 10jaar is verlopen!(KCE, 2010)
