FDA's Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD) and Orphan Products Clinical Trials Grants Program (formerly known as Orphan Products Grants) supports the clinical development of products to be used for treating rare diseases or conditions where no current therapy exists or where the proposed product will be superior to the existing therapy. FDA provides grants for clinical studies on safety and/or effectiveness that will either result in or substantially contribute to, market approval of these products. In general, OOPD grant funding lasts for three-four years. The demand for orphan drugs is inelastic, meaning that it is relatively insensitive to any change in prices. Orphan drugs are developed for conditions where there are only a few effective treatment options. Relatively small number of affected population means that the cost of the drug may not severely strain health system. Orphan diseases are supported by well-organized patient-advocacy organizations, including the National Organization for Rare Disorders in the U.S. and EURORDIS in the EU. It may be politically untenable for a payer to refuse coverage for a promising new therapy on cost grounds.

Awareness and understanding of rare diseases are often low and many patients struggle to find adequate information about their condition.
