Abstract: The pricing mechanism of orphan drugs appears arbitrary and has been referred to as a "black box". Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate how drug- and disease-specific variables relate to orphan drug prices. Additionally, we aim to explore if certain country-specific pricing and reimbursement policies affect the price level of orphan drugs.
