NORD and C-Path Release Video on Rare Disease Challenges in Each Step of the Drug Development Process

Posted by Laura Mullen

There are over 7,000 rare diseases, approximately 90% do not have FDA-approved treatments, and the process of developing therapies for rare diseases involves special challenges and considerations. NORD and the Critical Path Institute (C-Path) are working together on a new initiative, the Rare Disease Cures Accelerator-Data and Analytics Platform (RDCA-DAP), bringing together data from different sources and providing tools for streamlining the steps of research and development to help researchers and drug developers overcome these difficulties. Watch video #2 in NORD and C-Path’s three-part video series, “Accelerating Rare Disease Drug Development,” which examines the challenges of developing therapies for rare diseases in each step of the drug development process.
