Orphan Drug

Drugs that are not developed by the pharmaceutical industry for economic reasons but which respond to public health need. Orphan drugs' are intended to treat diseases so rare that sponsors are reluctant to develop them under regular marketing conditions. The process from the discovery of a new molecule to its marketing is long, expensive and very uncertain. Developing a drug expecting to treat a rare disease does not allow the recovery of the capital invested for its research.
