IAMRARE® Program Powered by NORD

Rare diseases present unique challenges for researchers and companies working towards treatments and cures:

  • Small patient populations;
  • Hard to diagnose or delayed diagnosis due to lack of education and understanding among medical professionals;
  • Poor understanding of the natural history of the disease and its progression without intervention;
  • No prior pathways to follow; clinical endpoints that are often unclear; and
  • Enrollment and retention challenges.

To address the special needs of those developing treatments for rare diseases, NORD has created a natural histories patient registry platform as part of the IAMRARE Program with extensive input from FDA, NIH, patients, organizations and experts in the field.

NORD’s IAMRARE Program is an easy to use system that allows patients and organizations to inform and shape medical research and translational science for rare diseases by launching high-quality, customized registries to collect the data needed to define the natural progression of their disease – ultimately advancing product development.
