Leslie Isenegger, Principal Strategist for Reputation & Risk Management Practice at inVentiv Health Communications, addresses the topic of orphan drug pricing in this article published in Pharmaceutical Executive.

Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) recently "released a whitepaper acknowledging that value assessments of orphan and ultra-orphan medicines are more challenging than for other types of treatments.

Leslie talks about how manufacturers should respond to the framework revisions that ICER has proposed.
