    • What is the Advantage to Designation? • When a drug or biological product is designated an orphan, certain financial incentives can flow: – Tax Credits – 50% of clinical trials costs – Waiver of User Fees - $1.9 M – 7-year Marketing Exclusivity • When a device is designated as a HUD, device is eligible for an alternate pathway to market – Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) – Exempt from an effectiveness showing; in lieu need only show probable benefit Brought to you by

    • FDASIA and PDUFA Performance Goals: Provisions Related to Rare Diseases • Expedited Approval for Serious or Life- Threatening Diseases/ Conditions – Accelerated Approval – Breakthrough Therapies • External Experts • Patient-Focused Drug Development • Rare Pediatric Disease Voucher Program • Meetings and Guidance Development • Humanitarian Device Exemptions Reauthorization of Grants: 1. Orphan Products Grant Program - $30M/year 2. Pediatric Devices Consortia Grant Program - $5.25M/year Brought to you by
    • Expedited Approval for Serious or Life- Threatening Diseases/ Conditions: Accelerated Approval • Based on a determination that the product has an effect on a: – Surrogate endpoint that is reasonably likely to predict clinical benefit OR – Clinical endpoint that can be measured earlier than irreversible morbidity or mortality, that is reasonably likely to predict effect on irreversible morbidity or mortality or other clinical benefit • Takes into account severity, rarity, or prevalence, as well as lack of alternative treatments Brought to you by
    • 10 • Designate drug as a breakthrough therapy if: – Intended to treat a serious or life-threatening disease/condition AND – Preliminary clinical evidence indicates that drug may demonstrate substantial improvement over existing therapies on 1 or more clinically significant endpoints • Submit request for designation with original IND or later • If designated: – Eligible for everything Fast Track receives – Also get more interactive involvement with review division to help guide efficient yet scientifically appropriate trial design Expedited Approval for Serious or Life- Threatening Diseases/ Conditions: Breakthrough Therapy Brought to you by
    • 11 External Experts • Ensure that opportunities exist for consultations with stakeholders for topics, including for example: – Severity of rare diseases – Unmet medical need associated with rare diseases – Willingness and ability of individuals with a rare disease to participate in clinical trials – Assessment of benefits and risks of therapies to treat rare diseases • Develop and maintain a list of external experts for consultation Brought to you by
    • Patient-Focused Drug Development • FDA to conduct 20 meetings on different disease areas to obtain patient perspective on disease severity or unmet medical need – Sept. 24, 2012 – Published a preliminary list of nominated disease areas and the criteria used for nomination • Included rare diseases (e.g., sickle cell disease, amyloidosis, hereditary angioedema) – Oct. 10, 2012 - Kicked off bi-monthly process consultation meetings – Oct. 25, 2012 – Open public meeting to discuss the proposed set of disease areas Brought to you by

    • Meetings and Guidance • Public Meetings – Issues in clinical trials for drugs for rare diseases (e.g., endpoint selection, use of surrogate endpoints, patient reported outcomes) – Ways to encourage/accelerate development of new therapies for pediatric rare diseases • Guidance Development – PDUFA Performance Goal (IX.E.): FDA, on an ongoing basis, will develop guidance to address issues to facilitate development of drugs for rare diseases (e.g., study design, endpoints, statistical analysis, etc.) – FDASIA provisions related to accelerated approval, breakthrough therapies, etc. likewise call for guidance development Brought to you by
    • 15 Humanitarian Device Exemption • Expands profit-making to HDE devices that – Don’t occur in pediatrics OR – Occurs in pediatrics in such number that development of device is “impossible, highly impracticable, or unsafe“ • Changes the definition of annual distribution number (ADN) – Equals the # of devices needed to treat/diagnose/cure 4,000 individuals Brought to you by
