Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs

Orphan drugs are used to treat rare diseases. A rare disease is a disease that affects a small percentage of the population. Most rare diseases are genetic in origin and thus are present throughout the person's entire life, even if symptoms do not immediately appear. Many rare diseases appear early in life.
