Rare Diseases Congress Market Analysis and Reports | UK Conference Series

Market Analysis - Rare Diseases Congress 2017

Importance & scope:

Rare diseases are rare and often debilitating or even life-threatening diseases or conditions with a prevalence of 0.65%-1%, the cause of rare diseases is mostly genetic in nature and sometimes it may be as a result of infections or degenerative causes.

 80% of rare diseases have identified genetic origins, 50% of rare diseases affect children, and 30% of patients with rare diseases die before the age of 5. A rare disease is defined as one that affects less than 5 in 10,000 of the general population in European Union and fewer than 200,000 people in the United States. Worldwide it is estimated that 350 million people suffer from rare diseases. The above data urges a need for enhanced efforts in the fields of fundamental, translational, epidemiological, health services research and the current focus of Research studies is on Orphan drugs for safe and effective treatment. This 2nd World Congress Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs would help researchers, academicians and young research fellows from across the globe to address the problem and unlock the understanding on rare diseases and its emerging technologies.

Why London?

Rare diseases are a complex group of heterogeneous maladies and are known for their irregularity. Just around 25% of uncommon diseases identified have their molecular basis characterized. There a numerous difficulties extending from illness acknowledgment to conclusion and advancement of new medications .UK has one of the biggest bio groups which work in association in this area of research,. London, the capital city of England is situated on River Thames nearby the island of Great Britain and is a popular tourist destination. London is a leading global city in areas of arts, commerce, education, entertainment, finance, healthcare, research facilities, tourist destination, and best transportation. London denote a one of a kind spot in rare diseases scientific research which includes top universities, research centres etc., these centres will provide research specialists the support and facilities they need to produce results. It also includes infrastructure that supports the research, and aims to consolidate its role as one of the world's driving places for the treatment of children with rare diseases. London and the neighbouring states are continuously endeavouring to create awareness and improve the health of individuals suffering from rare diseases. The EU has started a consortium in 2011 named “The International Rare Diseases Research Consortium” with an objective to develop new therapies and find novel methods to diagnose the disease. The UK has one of the strongest and most productive life sciences sectors in the world and London is a location of choice for pioneering, collaborative research of this nature. 2nd World Congress on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs to be held at London would benefit participants from all around the globe and drive forward research in this area.

Market Research

There are more than 6,000 perceived uncommon diseases and it has been assessed that a further 5 are depicted every week.75% of rare diseases influence children.30% of rare disease patients die before 5 years old and,whilst each affects less than 0.1% of the population, the quantity of patients influenced by rare diseases is around 27-36 million in the EU, 25-30 million in the US, and 350 million people are affected around the world, but the true burden of rare diseases is difficult to estimate hard to evaluate subsequent to epidemiological information for most uncommon infections are not accessible. Among the rare diseases recognized and contemplated by EURORIDS it is found that 28.1% autosomal recessive inheritance,26.5% autosomal dominant inheritance, some are sporadic and few are with no etiology.There will be a steady increase in the cumulative number of diseases for which an orphan drug is approved, averaging just over 5 new diseases per year over the next 10 years. The annual per patient cost of global orphan drugs was varies between €1,251 and €407,631, with the median cost being €32,242 per year. The share of the total pharmaceutical market represented by orphan drugs is anticipated to increase from 3.3% in 2010 to a range of 4.6% in 2016 after which it is expected to level off through 2020. The global sales for orphan drugs are estimated at $178 billion, growing by11.7% per year, over the five year period between 2015 and 2020, nearly double the yearly growth of the overall prescription drug market, There are more than 6000 rare diseases are occurring. On the whole, rare diseases may affect 30 million European Union citizens, affects less than 1 in 2000.

Life expectancy 

Among the couple of rare diseases studied it is found that 37.5% had ordinary lifespan - 25.7% possibly deadly during childbirth or before 5 years old - 36.8% lessened lifespan, depending on the seriousness, penetrance or type (child, juvenile or adult types) of the disease.






Funds for research

EU has declared 38 million euro financing for exploration towards orphan medicines and for the improvement of a central worldwide rare disease hub involving 70 institutions. The EU subsidizing encouraged the arrangement of multidisciplinary groups from colleges, research associations, SMEs, industry and patient associations from crosswise over Europe and beyond. National Institute for Health Research had released funds of £5 million for each annum for the Rare Diseases Translational Research Collaboration furthermore NIH funded 19 proceeding and new clinical examination consortia to fortify the progressing clinical exploration in rare diseases.
