Session Information

Navigating clinical trial design and regulations in rare diseases

Tackling the complexities and costs of clinical trial design in the rare disease space remains a chief goal for the industry. And while there are lingering hurdles around patient enrollment and the need to improve DEI, opportunities are also emerging through advanced technologies. 

Meanwhile, rare disease approvals have gained significant regulatory momentum, and in 2022, half of the new meds OK’d by the FDA were for orphan drugs. But significant work in the rare disease space still needs to be done to bring more medications to market.

In this session, our panel will discuss:

  • Patient recruitment challenges and opportunities
  • Incorporating DEI into trial design
  • The role of DCTs and other advanced clinical technologies
  • Designing clinical trials to meet regulatory goals
  • How recent FDA changes are impacting drug development efforts
  • Other emerging regulatory strategies
