ORPHINIC is an orphan drug development specialist.
We search for the best in class projects worldwide that potentially deliver life changing treatments. We work together with the scientists and lead the clinical research, regulatory and transactional matters.
We select the projects that have high market potential and relatively low risk of failure. We want to make sure that, if successful, the solution will significantly improve patient’s life.
The strategy of Orphinic is to acquire post-preclinical phase molecules ready to enter phase 1 or phase 2. (has to be ready within max. 12 months).
The current portfolio includes Scleroderma treatment in pre-Phase 2.
Several other molecules are currently being verified and negotiated.
The portfolio will consist of more than 10 different projects.
It represents a unique company in the European Economic Community and one among the few similar existing in the world;
The team has an in-house know how of best in class clinical research done in cost effective and time efficient manner;
The pharmaceutical industry suffers from a strong disagreement between the development of scientific innovation and the limited availability of resources.
There are over 7,000 rare diseases affecting 7% of the population and only 340 of these disorders currently have treatment.
The Orphinic’s strategic advantage is to perform clinical tests mainly in Eastern Europe. This guarantees a much faster process, with good quality and at a lower cost, thus creating the best value for our investors. The company guarantees costs reduction by 20% and timeline reduction by 30% compared to the rest of Europe or the USA also thanks to a proprietary software solution. After the Phase 1, performed internally, follows a Phase 2 outsourced to local or regional CRO taking advantage of an international medical experience. Regulation takes place internally too.
Finally, Orphinic collaborates with the major pharmaceutical industries to enter the market.
