Importance & Scope

There are more than 6000 Rare Diseases. Many rare diseases are diagnosed at the age of childhood, making diagnostic awareness and knowledge on treatment and care particularly important for pediatricians.

The Rare Diseases are so rare that rarity can lead to several problems including: difficulties in obtaining timely, accurate diagnoses; lack of experienced healthcare supervisors; useful, reliable and timely information may be difficult to retrieve; research activities are very less; developing new pharmaceuticals may not be economically feasible; treatments are sometimes very expensive; and in developing countries, the problems are compounded by other resource limitations.

Rare Diseases 2020 is emerging up with an exciting and high knowledge gaining conference program this year also which includes plenary lectures, symposia, workshops on a variety of topics, poster presentations and various programs for participants from throughout the world. We invite you to join us at the Rare Diseases and Orphan Drug Congress 2019 in Berlin where you will be sure to have a meaningful experience with scholars from around the world. The Rare Diseases Conference aims to extend the reach, impact and exchange of scholarly ideas through innovative technology, determined commitment and exceptional service. It aims to provide international collaboration and exchange of comprehensive and cuttingedge information on basic, translational, and applied clinical research on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs.

Market Research Growth on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs

Nearly there are 7,000 different types of Rare Diseases and disorders it has estimated that 30 million people in the United States, 30 million in Europe and 350 million people over the globe suffer from Rare Diseases. Four by fifth of Rare Diseases are genetic in origin, among them affected individuals 50% of them will be children. The Rare Diseases are distributed in such a way that four fifth of the cases accounted by some 350 Rare Diseases. About only 5% of rare diseases are having approved drug treatment with only 326 new drugs being approved from the FDA and brought in to the market.



In 2018, Orphan Drug sales were of the order of 93 billion. Orphan Drugs represented 35% of the industry’s new drug approvals. The genetic diseases are subdivided by therapeutic area, which was leading the global market in the past will show similar traction in the coming next eight years. This segment is anticipated to be valued at US$ 56,241 by the end of 2025. According to Statistics of MRC, the Global Orphan Drug market is estimated at $145.89 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $265.63 million by 2022 growing at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2018 to 2022.

Rare Diseases are that affects a small percentage of the population all over the world. An Orphan Disease is Rare Diseases with a lack of a market large enough to gain support and sources for discovering treatments for it, with advances to research in orphan diseases advantageous conditions to creating and selling such treatments. Rare diseases are genetic and are present throughout the entire life of individual suffering, even if symptoms do not immediately appear. Many Rare Diseases seems to appear early in life, and about 30% of children affecting with rare pediatric diseases will die before getting 5 year old. Rare Diseases are generally genetic and so they chronic. It is estimates that at least 80% of them have identified genetic origins. Other Rare Diseases are the result of infections and allergies or it may be due to degenerative and proliferative causes and discovering the well-advanced treatments in Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs.
