Event Oct 30 - Nov 01, 2017
Location: San Antonio, TX, USA
Welcome to San Antonio, TX for the "3rd Annual Congress on Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs". Rare disorders affect over 350 Million people globally – which means if all people affected by one of ~7000 rare disorders are put together in a country, that would be the third most populous country in the world.
In the United States, we have over 30 Million patients suffering from these debilitating rare diseases. About 80% of the rare diseases are estimated to be genetic in origin and a half of those are early onset before 5 years of age
