1) has given birth to biopharmaceuticals that are now on the market to improve human health. In more recent years, these technologies have been gradually adopted and integrated into the research and development processes of most of the major pharmaceutical companies. Today, major established pharmaceutical companies and dedicated biotechnology companies alike are using these advanced tools and resources to stay competitive in accelerating the discovery and development of pharmaceuticals. for manipulating DNA could be translated into products at a private company yet to be established.

At the same time some of these drugs, particularly those used in cancerrelated areas, are prescribed off-label for nonapproved indications. According to a General Accounting Office report, oncologists prescribed drugs to 44% of patients according to the FDA approved indication (on-label). 8% of these prescriptions were evidencebased, relying on clinical data. While the strategy to seek additional indications for an approved drug is not new, the deliberate planning to develop new and more lucrative indications outside the orphan designation after marketing of the product for an orphan indication and the promotion to prescribers of potential new indications, even before FDA approval, breaks new ground in exploiting health care needs.
