Europe’s Orphan Product Designations: 2015 3-Month Activity Rate

April 30, 2015

This Blog Post will compare the number of European Medicines Agency (EMA) COMP’s (Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products) positive opinions recommending Orphan Drug Designation (ODD), for the 1st Quarter 2014 versus the number of EMA COMP ODDs recommended for the 1st Quarter 2015.

Month # of   2014 EMA COMP ODDs ** # of   2015 EMA COMP ODDs *** %   Change   From 2014 To   2015
January 15 19 26.7 %
February 13 22 69.2 %
March 6 15  150 %
Grand   Totals 34 56 64.7 %

.

Thus, there is an approximate increase of 65 % in the EMA COMP’s number of positive opinions recommending ODDs between the 1st Q 2014 and the 1st Q 2015.
