Throughout the clinical development and commercialization lifecycle of products to treat rare diseases, there are a variety of clinical studies that can be conducted. Studies may be conducted for various reasons including product regulatory approval, patient access to a product for an unmet need, patient registries, or as a post-marketing requirement following product approval. The regulatory strategy employed often dictates the type of study that needs to be conducted to address an associated regulatory requirement.


This webinar will address the various clinical, regulatory (US & EU) and commercialization strategies that may be implemented in the development of products to treat rare diseases and orphan indications.

Key Learning Objectives:


  • US Regulatory requirements and associated study design – Registries, pre-, post-, and peri-approval designs
  • EU regulatory environment and Compassionate Use/Expanded Access Programs (EAP)
  • Real World case examples and lessons learned
