Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. Submits Application for Orphan Drug Designation to European Medicines Agency for Alferon N Injection®

Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. announced that they have submitted an application for orphan drug designation to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for Alferon N Injection®, an experimental therapeutic, to treat Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The EMA has determined the application to be valid, and the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products (COMP) has initiated the official review process. It is anticipated that the COMP will give an opinion on the application within the next 90 days.

Designated orphan medicines are assessed for marketing authorization centrally in the European Union with reductions/waivers in the fees and costs of the overall regulatory process. The designation allows companies to make a single application to the European Medicines Agency, resulting in a single opinion and a single decision from the European Commission, valid in all EU Member States. Authorized orphan medications, once commercially approved, receive benefits including ten years of complete protection from market competition with similar medicines.
