    ODD a non event?

    ODD has been granted for treated of pain related to shingles. Last I heard shingles is extraordinarily painful. Management is showing confidence and flexing their muscle by even having made such a request months ago. How important the request being granted is up to each individual to interpret. I came here for p2 results, I believe ODD status for shingles related pain and the use of phn patients are very bullish confident signals.

    • An orphan drug is a pharmaceutical agent that has been developed specifically to treat a rare medical condition, the condition itself being referred to as an orphan disease. In the US and EU it is easier to gain marketing approval for an orphan drug, and there may be other financial incentives, such as extended exclusivity periods, all intended to encourage the development of drugs which might otherwise lack a sufficient profit motive. The assignment of orphan status to a disease and to any drugs developed to treat it is a matter of public policy in many countries, and has resulted in medical breakthroughs that may not have otherwise been achieved due to the economics of drug research and development.
