  • The European Commission has granted orphan medicinal product designation to the drug based on that recommendation.
  • There are approximately 165,000 patients with RP in Europe and 40,000 patients with LCA in the region.
  • According to estimates, approximately 2.0 million people reside in the world with RP, and 0.2 million suffer from LCA.
  • An orphan medicinal drug designation in Europe offers certain benefits to a company while it develops drugs for treating, diagnosing, or preventing diseases and conditions that affect fewer than 5 out of 10,000 patients in the region.
  • The government will assist companies in obtaining protocol assistance, reduced regulatory charges, research grants, and ten years of market exclusivity following regulatory approval of such designated products.

Conclusion:

The Ocugen stock could continue the rally today that it has started in last trading, or can at least raise the investor’s sentiment for a while in pre-market as well as regular session today. However, its potential could be counted higher as its co-developed vaccine for vast market of India could bring in strong revenues at an accelerated pace.
