35% of the Work We Do Supports Rare and Ultra-Rare Diseases 

Veristat is the Science-First full service CRO and consultancy that can help you bring your drug or biologic to market quickly. 

We understand that nothing is standard when developing a therapy for a rare or ultra-rare disease. From regulatory pathway selection to patient recruitment challenges to navigating the volume of data to collect and clean, a rare disease trial requires extraordinary coordination.

Veristat’s scientific-minded experts excel at supporting the development of therapies to treat rare and ultra-rare diseases, accounting for 35% of the work we do. In the past five years, our team members have supported more than 350 clinical trials and consulting projects for rare diseases and have worked on more than 40+ US and European regulatory marketing applications – 30 of which have been approved so far.

Clinical Trial and Regulatory Consulting Expertise for Complex and Rare Diseases

Rare disease trials come with unique challenges and opportunities. We help determine if your study qualifies for an accelerated regulatory approval pathway – such as Orphan Drug Designation, Fast Track designation, or Priority Review – and we will represent you at meetings with FDA and EMA.
Veristat ensures that your clinical trial or program design supports your regulatory strategy, disease progression analytical models, or previous adult trials. Our experienced teams are poised to swiftly plan and execute these efforts.

Strategies for Success in Rare Disease Clinical Trials

Given the challenges of finding, recruiting, and retaining patients for rare disease trials, there are countless considerations to improve clinical program success: 
Fortunately, patients with rare diseases and their families are among the most involved and proactive patient populations in the world. They actively participate in trial design, help recruit other patients, and contribute to building registries. Above all, patients’ primary goal is to advocate for effective therapies for rare diseases, urging sponsors to expand their research on an international scale. Veristat sees great promise in this collaborative and encouraging approach.
