TRADITIONAL SMALL MOLECULES AND BIOLOGICS

Dramatically improving quality of life and survival

 

More than 200 traditional small molecules and biologics have been approved for rare disorders and orphan indications. As such, we believe they still provide great opportunities for those rare disorders that cannot be treated with advanced therapies, such as rare infections or acquired orphan disorders.

INVESTMENT THESIS

www.chiesiventures.com

There are 6,000 - 7,000 known rare diseases but new ones are being diagnoses every day.

 

More than 90% of known rare diseases do not have any approved treatment.

 

For the few diseases for which an approved therapy exists, it is hardly defined as a definitive cure.
