#Específica de ER# Convocatoria de proyectos de reposicionamiento de fármacos FINDCURE 2017

Grant: The rare repurposing open call is a collaborative project between Findacure, Cures Within Reach, and Healx. We are searching for existing drug repurposing ideas for rare diseases that have yet to receive a full clinical trial. Our primary aim is to demonstrate the huge potential of clinic-led, patient group-led, and researcher-driven innovation in drug repurposing for rare diseases, and the need for new funding streams to help these ideas bridge the translational gap, including Findacure’s Rare Disease Drug Repurposing Social impact Bond (RDDR SIB).

We are looking for people around the world to share their repurposing ideas for rare diseases, with the aim of advancing the best of these projects, either through support, or the identification of funding opportunities.

Ideal projects will fit into the RDDR SIB and:

  • Target a rare disease with no effective existing treatment.
  • Have a candidate generic drug, device or nutraceutical for repurposing supported by multiple pre-clinical studies.
  • Have some in-human case studies.
  • Have a potentially disease-modifying effect, which has significant patient benefit.
  • Have the potential to dramatically reduce healthcare spend on treated patients, and able to show evidence of the current high healthcare cost for this patient cohort.
  • Have connections with a rare disease patient group (an organisation or charity representing the opinions, rights, and treatment needs of a rare disease patient population).
  • Have some form of collaborator in the UK.
  • Be able to launch a clinical trial in early 2018.
  • Have ready access to a patient population.

Budget: N/A

Submission: To submit your repurposing projects, sign up for CureAcceleratorTM and search for the Rare Repurposing Open Call. Submissions are due by the 31st May.
