Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is how pharmaceutical companies and the FDA determine if treatment for a rare disease is safe and effective. Because the number of patients with rare diseases are extremely small, it is difficult for the companies to enroll enough patients to statistically prove (that the improvement wasn't just by chance) that the treatment was effective. It may take many years to treat enough patients to determine if a treatment is effective. The FDA, patient communities, legislation, and the drug companies are working on ways to address this issue.
