The definition of what is considered a rare disease differs all over the world. However, a common estimate is that the number of rare diseases currently amount to 6 to 8 thousand, with these disorders affecting almost 30 million people in Europe alone. Recent initiatives foster cross-border collaboration to bring new treatments faster to the patients, while recognizing the special demands of research on rare diseases. While clinical trials are a key component in drug development, research in rare diseases presents additional challenges compared with more common diseases.
