The new European Clinical Trial Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 536/2014) will introduce an ‘ultra-rare’ condition and states that clinical trials for the development of orphan medicinal products and those of medicines affecting no more than one person in 50,000 in the EU (ultra-rare diseases) should be fostered, and in such areas, a rapid yet in-depth assessment is of particular importance. The new clinical trials regulation is expected to be implemented in the EU in late 2020.
