Orphan Disease Platform

A core aspect of our business is developing therapies for rare and orphan diseases that affect millions of people.

The FDA defines an orphan disease as a condition that affects less than 200,000 Americans. Currently there are approximately 7,000 rare and orphan diseases affecting 25-30 million Americans. Less than 5% of these conditions have an approved therapy.

Dr. Shackelford has experience in treating patients with 20+ conditions that would qualify as an orphan designation. Many of these orphan conditions have limited or no approved therapies at this moment. Shackelford Pharma has engaged a leading regulatory consultancy that specializes in FDA orphan and rare disease submissions. An evaluation of Shackelford’s orphan data is being analyzed in preparation for building a regulatory pathway that would lead to submissions to the FDA for Orphan designations as quickly as possible.

Shackelford’s near term orphan drug development will focus on childhood epileptic condition and a rare form of headaches.
