Orphan Drugs

Orphan pharmaceuticals are prescription medications used to treat rare illnesses or disorders that are meant to be treated, prevented from occurring, or diagnosed. They are referred to as "orphan medications" due to the small size of their market. A illness is considered an orphan if it affects fewer than 200,000 persons nationally. The majority of orphan diseases have a genetic basis. Orphan diseases are rare and could impact one in every 15 people worldwide.
