FDA Holds Workshop on Orphan Drugs

FDA will hold its fourth orphan-drug designation workshop for academics, biotechnology companies, and those unfamiliar with the orhan-drug designation process Feb. 28–Mar. 1, 2011, in Claremont, California, in collaboration with Keck Graduate Institute, according to an agency announcement. The workshop will focus on the process used by FDA to grant orphan-drug designation to drug products intended to treat rare diseases. Three similar workshops were held in 2010.
