  • What should be the key driving factors to consider for pricing decisions?
  • Can current HTA approaches work in the assessment of Orphan ATMPs?
  • What reimbursement and funding models should be adopted?

Expertise shared from MME:
  • In addition to work in oncology and orphan markets, we have helped developers and marketers of >40 ultra-orphan drugs and several ATMPs to identify, frame, communicate and capture the value of their therapies.
  • Unique combination of manufacturer and customer perspectives combined with solid academic theory
  • Strategy development and tactical execution to support informed decision making
  • Assessment and planning of opportunities and competitive situations at every stage of the product life cycle
  • Our methods are designed to develop an understanding of the value perceptions of all meaningful stakeholders
What are the benefits of attending this workshop?
  • The orphan markets have examples of products that have exceeded expectations as well as some that have yet to achieve initial forecasts: pricing and reimbursement is a factor that can work in either direction.
  • During this workshop we will look at the general issues and challenges for ODs and at the additional particular challenges for ODs that are also ATMPs.
  • In this particularly innovative field, understanding the current orphan drug environment and the potential changes in the near future include sustainability of orphan drug pricing plus the additional key issues related to pricing and reimbursement of cell and gene therapies.
