  7. RFA-TR-20-031: Basket Clinical Trials of Drugs Targeting Shared Molecular Etiologies in Multiple Rare Diseases (U44 Clinical Trial Required)

    Release Date: 09-15-2020Open Date: 10-12-2020Due Date: 11-12-2020Close Date: 11-13-2020

    A. Overview While there are thousands of rare diseases, the number of underlying etiologies is much smaller. Moreover, many disease etiologies underly multiple traditional diseases. This is most readily seen for rare monogenic diseases, where the most common etiologies include premature termination codons, protein misfolding, and abnormal RNA splicing. Other examples of rare disease shared molecu ...
