Rare disease is defined as a condition that affects fewer than 200,000 people nationwide. This includes diseases as familiar as cystic fibrosis, Lou Gehrig's disease, and Fragile X syndrome.
The Global Genes Project estimates some 300 million people worldwide are affected by a rare disease. The European Organization for Rare Diseases (EURORDIS) estimates that as many as 5,000 to 7,000 distinct rare diseases exist, and only about 400 rare diseases have therapies and about 80% have a genetic component according to Rare Genomics Institute.
