Title:Nonclinical data supporting orphan medicinal product designations: lessons from rare neurological conditions
Creators Name:Sheean, M.E. and Stoyanova-Beninska, V. and Capovilla, G. and Duarte, D. and Hofer, M.P. and Hoffmann, M. and Magrelli, A. and Mariz, S. and Tsigkos, S. and Shaili, E. and Polsinelli, B. and Ricciardi, M. and Bonelli, M. and Balabanov, P. and Larsson, K. and Sepodes, B.
Abstract:Here, we provide an in-depth literature and experience-based review of nonclinical models and data used to support orphan medicinal product designations (OMPDs) in rare neurodegenerative conditions. The Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) of the European Medicines Agency updates its assessment processes based on scientific progress and aims to provide transparent criteria required in support of OMPDs. Thus, we also provide an updated analysis of existing nonclinical models in selected conditions and identify key features of nonclinical studies that are crucial for the support of OMPDs. This could not only inform future drug development in rare neurological conditions, but also indicate areas where the use of nonclinical models can be made more efficient.
