A widely recognized leader in the rare disease field, Jim Geraghty, has published his new book “Inside the Orphan Drug Revolution”, an epic reading on his personal recount how the orphan drug industry developed over the past forty years as an entrepreneur, a leader, an insider and important contributor.
Forty years ago, a revolution started that transformed the prospects of patients with rare diseases. This book is in part a history, with eyewitness accounts of advances as they occurred and portraits of the pioneering scientists and physicians, tireless activists, and visionary business leaders who made the revolution happen, and it tells deeply personal stories of patients and parents willing to risk new, untried therapies. CANbridge is honored to be part of this revolution and has been mentioned as the “Genzyme of China” in this book.
In this book, Jim once again highlighted CANbridge’s vision to bring proven orphan drugs to China and to develop new ones there to bring to the U.S. and other markets. He also laid out how CANbridge develop in the past years to address the growing, yet unaddressed orphan drugs market in China.
