Conference: Your gateway to the Rare Disease market in Asia

The pharmaceutical industry’s interest for rare diseases has increased recently due to thinning pipelines, impending patent expirations and minimal market competition of developing orphan drugs.
Asia, being the most populous continent, offers the biggest patient pools to global Pharmas and Specialty Biotechs to develop and commercialise these ultra-niche yet high value therapeutics. However to successfully compete, companies need to have an in-depth knowledge of regulatory framework, pricing & reimbursement and distribution channels.
World Orphan Drug Congress Asia 2011 is where international and local pharmas, biotechs, regulators, MOH, investors and technology providers to address the challenges, discuss opportunities and strategise best business models and international collaboration in gaining a foothold in the Asian market.
