Accelerating Drug Development for Rare Diseases through Data Sharing and Analysis
Despite increasing numbers of drug targets and technologies, rare disease drug development is frequently slowed by the low numbers of patients and the lack of comprehensive quantitative characterization of diseases. Tucson’s Critical Path Institute (C-Path), along with the National Organization of Rare Disorders and the FDA, have developed an integrated database and analytics hub called the Rare Disease Cures Accelerator-Data and Analytics Platform (RDCA-DAP) to help accelerate clinical development, make it less expensive, and encourage new companies to develop treatments for rare diseases.
