N/A
Available Therapies via Single-Patient EA

The mission of Achillion is to provide better treatments for people with serious diseases. We are a science-driven company committed to putting patients first. In our endeavor to bring innovative medicines to patients as fast and safely as possible, we conduct clinical trials to establish the safety and efficacy of an ‘investigational drug’. An ‘investigational drug’ is a potential medicine that is in active clinical development, but has not yet received marketing approval by regulatory authorities. Clinical trials and the subsequent timely generation of safety and efficacy data are the most effective way of ensuring review and decision making by Regulatory Authorities. This ultimately has resulted in access to new, safe and effective approved medicines for patients.

Achillion supports the need for Early Access to investigational drugs for patients ineligible to enroll in clinical trials.

An Early Access program for a specific investigational drug may be opened if Achillion determines that all the following criteria are met:
1. The investigational drug is the subject of an active clinical development program and is not approved in any indication in the country concerned
2. An adequate supply of the investigational drug exists to perform necessary clinical studies as well as to provide Early Access to patients who do not have alternative treatment options
3. Early Access does not impede or compromise the clinical development or regulatory approval of the drug under investigation
4. There are sufficient clinical data available with respect to both the investigational drug and the disease condition for which the application is being sought, to anticipate that any potential benefits from treatment are likely to outweigh any potential risks to the patient

Achillion continues to assess the eligibility requirements and criteria for Early Access to the investigational drug danicopan (ACH-4471). At this time, an Early Access Program (EAP) is not available. We will re-evaluate this policy from time to time.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

AlloVir is committed to developing safe and effective therapies addressing severe and potentially life-threatening virus-associated diseases and their potential sequelae. Our goal is to provide access to our investigational therapies at the appropriate time and in the correct manner for patients.
Expanded access refers to the use of an investigational therapy outside a clinical trial when the primary purpose is to diagnose, prevent, or treat a serious condition in a patient. This is different from a clinical trial, where more comprehensive safety and efficacy data are collected. We understand the need for expanded access programs, and we recognize the importance of having an appropriate policy.
A number of factors consistent with the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) and other regulatory agencies’ guidelines should be taken into account when considering expanded access. They include:
•    The illness must be serious or immediately life-threatening with no other satisfactory treatment options (such as approved products or enrolling clinical trials).
•    The patient must have undergone appropriate standard treatments without success and no comparable or satisfactory alternative treatment is available or exists to treat the disease or condition.
•    The patient is ineligible for participation in any ongoing clinical study of the investigational product, which includes lack of access due to geographic limitations.
•    The patient has a disease for which there is sufficient evidence of a projected benefit from the use of the investigational product and the benefit outweighs the known or anticipated risks.
•    There is an ability to provide the product in a fair and equitable manner and there is adequate manufacturing capacity for ongoing programs.
•    Whether granting expanded access would potentially compromise the scientific validity of broader development programs or interfere with or delay current clinical trials or regulatory filings designed to make the therapy available to many more patients.

At this time, AlloVir believes that participation in one of our clinical trials is the most appropriate way to access our investigational therapies. If you have additional questions, please speak with your physician or contact expandedaccess@allovir.com. We anticipate acknowledging receipt of requests sent to this email within five business days.

Expected Application Timeframe
5-10 business days
Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Aravive, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing treatments designed to halt the progression of life-threatening diseases, including cancer. The following is Aravive’s policy for evaluating and responding to requests for individual patient access to its investigational drugs that are intended to treat serious diseases.

Aravive believes that investigational drugs should be studied in patients as part of clinical trials designed to obtain data on safety and efficacy that may be used to support approval of the product and subsequent wider accessibility to patients. We encourage patients to speak with their physicians and to participate in clinical trials. In rare cases when patients with serious diseases are unable to participate in clinical trials and have exhausted all available therapies, Aravive may consider providing an investigational drug outside of a clinical trial.

General Criteria

We consider a number of factors when determining whether or not to support expanded access for a given investigational drug:

Will the potential benefit potentially outweigh the collective potential risks to the patient?
Is there adequate drug supply for both the clinical development program (current and future trials) and broad expanded access?
Is there enough evidence to reasonably assess that the drug will be safe and effective so that it can be provided to patients under expanded access in an environment that is less controlled than a sponsored clinical trial?
To meet regulatory requirements, will the safety data be adequately provided to Aravive by a local physician outside of a sponsored clinical trial?
Is there a good understanding of the indication for which use is requested?
Will it jeopardize the ongoing development work that Aravive is conducting to bring a therapeutic to market as quickly as possible and to as many patients as possible?
In addition, the program must be compliant with local rules and laws and the treating physician has to be willing to open a single-patient (Investigator) IND with the FDA.

Contact Information

A treating physician may submit questions or requests regarding expanded access to the following: clinicaltrials@aravive.com

Additional information may be obtained from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at https://www.fda.gov/downloads/newsevents/publichealthfocus/expandedaccesscompassionateuse/ucm504494…

Request Procedures

Requests should be submitted to clinicaltrials@aravive.com by the treating licensed physician and should include sufficient supporting detail to enable Aravive to evaluate the expanded access request. Please include contact information so Aravive can follow-up with the physician directly (i.e., address, phone number, e-mail). The requesting physician would be expected to submit an Investigator IND, if appropriate, only after Aravive review of the provided information and approval of the request.

Aravive may revise this expanded access policy at any time. Additionally, the posting of the policy by Aravive shall not serve as a guarantee of access to any specific investigational drug for any patient.

Additional studies in patients with relapsed or refractory AML and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) are under preparation.
At Biosight, we are focused on enrolling and conducting clinical trials aimed at gaining regulatory approval, making BST-236 available to patients as quickly as possible. As such, we believe participation in our clinical trials is the most appropriate way to access BST-236 at this stage of development. Information about our clinical trials, including eligibility criteria and locations, is available at www.clinicaltrials.gov.

Biosight understands the interest of patients in accessing BST-236 outside of clinical trials and prior to regulatory approval for potentially life-threatening diseases, however we do not currently offer any Expanded Access programs for BST-236.
Biosight recognizes the need for Expanded Access programs and will re-evaluate the status of our policy based on data from ongoing and future clinical trials.

Biothera is evaluating the safety and efficacy of its proprietary innate immune modulator, Imprime PGG, in combination with various immune checkpoint inhibitors and monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of multiple cancers. At this time, Biothera does not have a compassionate use program; however, it will consider providing Imprime PGG for individual patients (Single Patient IND) on a case-by-case basis. This opportunity applies only to patients with serious or life-threatening conditions who are unable to participate in a clinical trial and for whom there are no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy options.

In determining whether single patient access is appropriate outside of a clinical trial, Biothera will consider many factors, including: the strength of available efficacy and safety data; the patient’s medical condition and history; the benefit-risk profile of our drug in relation to the patient’s case; the potential impact on the clinical development program; and the ability and willingness of the patient’s physician to sponsor the treatment application.

If you are a potential patient and your physician believes you may be a candidate for single patient access to Imprime PGG, please ask your physician to contact Biothera at earlyaccess@biothera.com.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Cellectar Biosciences is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of cancer. Our core objective is to leverage our proprietary phospholipid drug conjugates™ (PDCs™) delivery platform to develop PDCs that specifically target cancer cells to deliver improved efficacy and better safety as a result of fewer off-target effects. 

Consistent with Cellectar Biosciences’ mission to bring our PDCs™ to patients with cancer, we are focused on enrolling and conducting the clinical trials necessary to gain regulatory approvals to make our products available broadly to patients as quickly as possible. We are privileged to collaborate with clinical investigators and with patients who participate in our studies to develop new, safe and effective therapies. We believe this approach will serve patients who could be helped by the therapies we are developing. At the same time, we understand that there are seriously ill patients who will not be eligible for our clinical trials and may not have options for alternative therapies, including investigational therapies in trials being conducted by other sponsors. In these circumstances, Cellectar Biosciences will consider providing a requesting physician with pre-approval access to a specific Cellectar Biosciences investigational drug, for the treatment of an individual patient outside of a clinical trial, when certain conditions are met. These conditions include the following: 

•    The patient has a serious or life-threatening illness or condition and is either no longer responsive to or no longer able to tolerate any available treatment option; 
•    The investigational drug is in active clinical development with sufficient data available to determine an appropriate dose and schedule for the patient’s specific condition; 
•    A benefit-risk analysis, based on both the available clinical data as well as the requesting physician’s assessment of the individual patient’s condition and history, supports making the investigational drug available; 
•    Making the investigational drug available will not negatively impact or delay the conduct of clinical trials or regulatory review or approval of the investigational drug for broader patient access; and 
•    Adequate supply of the investigational drug is available. 

We continually evaluate the benefit-risk profile of each of our investigational drugs based on evolving clinical data. Each compound under development is different and the fact that one investigational drug is made available for the treatment of a particular patient does not mean it will be made available in response to other requests on behalf of other patients whose circumstances and medical histories may be different, or that a different investigational drug will be made available under our policy. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

Cellectar Biosciences is committed to evaluating all requests in a fair and equitable manner. All requests must be submitted by the patient’s treating physician; Cellectar Biosciences may require more detailed information in order to fully evaluate a request. The requesting physician must agree to obtain appropriate regulatory and ethics committee approvals and comply with regulatory obligations, including obtaining patient consent, patient monitoring and safety reporting. Each request will be given careful consideration by Cellectar Biosciences whose decisions are final. Currently available therapies include CLR 131 for 4th line or later relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma and patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL) who have received at least two prior treatment regimens; and patients with relapsed or refractory lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (LPL) or Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia (WM) who have received at least two prior treatment regimens.

Physicians seeking pre-approval access for patients with no alternative treatment options should submit their requests to clinical@cellectar.com. We regularly monitor this mailbox and will use our best efforts to acknowledge each submitted request within 5 business days after receipt.

Cellphire Policy: Expanded Access Use of Thrombosomes®

Overview

This Policy regarding Expanded Access to Cellphire’s Investigational New Drug Thrombosomes (TBX), an activated freeze-dried platelet, is aimed at addressing the limited availability of platelets that are the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Blood products are in critical need during this time frame and blood banks are faced with extremely limited supplies.

In the situation where a patient presents with WHO Grade 3 bleeding or higher and is in critical need of platelet/blood products, this Policy facilitates the use of TBX to treat the acute bleed and possibly mitigate the risk of additional critical bleeding. The benefit of the use of TBX in this critical set of circumstances is believed to outweigh the risks of the use of this investigational product.

Policy Statements

In cases where a clinical trial with Thrombosomes is not an option, Cellphire may elect to provide the Sponsor/Investigator expanded access to its investigational product, TBX. Treating Sponsor/Investigators and patients should note that clinical safety and efficacy of investigational products has not been fully established, so all potential risks and benefits should be carefully evaluated before seeking expanded access to this product. It is envisioned that requests could be made by Sponsor/Investigators as either an Individual Patient IND or Emergency Use Individual Patient IND. For more information on submitting requests to the FDA, click here.

This policy is aimed at addressing both types of requests. Cellphire will consider requests for access to TBX, according to internal Cellphire SOPs and as permitted by applicable law, in very specific circumstances, when certain criteria are met. For more detailed information, see Cellphire’s full policy here.

Requesting Access

Sponsor/Investigators seeking single patient expanded access (either emergency or non-emergency use) to TBX on behalf of their patient should call Cellphire at 301-545-2528 or submit an inquiry to expandedaccess@cellphire.com.

The request will promptly be addressed, generally within 24 hours of receipt by a member of either the Cellphire Clinical Affairs or Clinical Study Teams. Sponsor/Investigators should provide a written summary of the specific medical circumstances that require single patient expanded access and the need for treatment with TBX which briefly includes responses to each of the eligibility requirements listed above.

It should be noted that there is no guarantee that an expanded access request will be granted by FDA. Sponsor/Investigators who receive a TBX dose for their patients through the expanded access program must comply with all applicable FDA regulations, contractual conditions, safety reporting required by FDA, and protection of intellectual property.

This policy is subject to change. Cellphire will revisit the policy periodically and amend it as appropriate. This policy is not a guarantee of access to any of Cellphire’s investigational products.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia With Gene Mutations

Quizartinib is an experimental product being developed by Daiichi Sankyo that has not been approved yet by the FDA for relapsed or refractory FLT3-ITD mutated AML. The main objective of this program is to provide treatment with quizartinib as monotherapy to patients with relapsed or refractory FLT3-ITD mutated AML who are not eligible to participate in our current clinical trials. Expanded access treatment with quizartinib as monotherapy is currently available in the United States only, and will consist of 28-day continuous cycles. However, treatment may be placed on hold or permanently discontinued by the Sponsor at any point for reasons not limited to drug supply shortage, marketing authorization decline, or safety concerns.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

At Daiichi Sankyo, we recognize that there are instances when a patient has a serious or life-threatening disease or condition, for which all currently available treatment options have been exhausted and enrollment into a clinical trial is not possible. In these cases, in particular, a treating physician can request the use of an investigational Daiichi Sankyo product prior to regulatory approval for the particular condition or indication, provided it is allowed by the applicable local laws. 

Daiichi Sankyo strives for an equitable balance between the public interest in securing the approval of a new drug and allowing access to certain investigational medicinal products that may have the potential to treat seriously ill patients who cannot be satisfactorily treated with commercially available products.  The following criteria are typically required before Daiichi Sankyo would consider patients eligible for expanded access to a Daiichi Sankyo investigational product. All criteria are subject to local laws and regulations:
--The patient suffers from a life threatening or serious disease or condition, where there is an unmet medical need that cannot be met by existing products.
--The patient is ineligible or unable to participate in any ongoing clinical study of the investigational product.
--The investigational product is under active development (a dose and regimen has been defined and the product is typically in Phase 2 development or beyond) and has not been placed on regulatory or any other hold.
--The benefit-risk profile of the drug in the indication and the patient population is deemed, to date, to be positive.
--Daiichi Sankyo has decided to seek marketing approval in at least one major market globally.
--The expanded access use of the investigational product will not jeopardize the development of the drug (for instance, granting access to an investigational unapproved drug through expanded access should not delay, interfere with, or compromise the completion of clinical trials that are intended to support approval by regulatory authorities).
--The use of the investigational product in an expanded access protocol is compliant with local rules and regulations.

Daiichi Sankyo cannot approve expanded access use requests in cases where doing so would violate company policy, local laws or regulations, or if access would present an unacceptable benefit/risk profile, as deemed by medical personnel of the company.  We commit to a careful and fair evaluation of each request by the appropriate medical experts at Daiichi Sankyo within the boundaries of local laws and regulations.

Available Therapies via Single-Patient EA

We have a formal program for quizartinib (relapsed/refractory FLT3-ITD AML)

Daiichi Sankyo does not currently have formal expanded access programs for our other investigational products. We consider granting expanded access to products other than quizartinib on a case-by-case basis, as long as such provision will not delay, interfere with or compromise the completion of clinical trials that are intended to support approval by regulatory authorities, which, in turn, provides access to the medication for the greatest number of individuals.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Epirium Bio is committed to developing safe and effective therapies for intractable neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases associated with mitochondrial depletion, as well as primary mitochondrial disorders, and providing those therapies to the broadest group of patients as quickly as possible. We also recognize that there are many diverse conditions in which mitochondrial depletion or dysfunction are a key component of the disease process. As part of our commitment to the rare disease community, we will support compassionate use / expanded access programs* when we have substantial scientific evidence to support both the safety and the potential efficacy of an investigational medical product for a given indication, and when it is logistically practicable.

Epirium has a developed a process for determining whether the company will provide an experimental therapy under compassionate use.
In the first step, the company will evaluate whether:
• there is substantial scientific evidence to support both the safety and the efficacy of an investigational medical product for a particular indication;
• it has been established that access on a compassionate use basis will not compromise clinical trials or the regulatory pathway for an investigational medical product;
• there is adequate supply of the investigational medical product; and
• the investigational medical product can be administered – and it is logistically feasible to make it available – outside of the clinical trial setting.
If the company decides that, under the first step, availability of the investigational medical product on a compassionate use basis is possible, then the company will evaluate an individual’s request for access.
This second step uses the following criteria:
• the patient has a serious disease or condition, or whose life is immediately threatened by their disease or condition;
• there is no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy to diagnose, monitor, or treat the disease or condition;
• patient enrollment in a clinical trial is not possible;
• potential patient benefit justifies the potential risks of treatment;
• providing the investigational medical product will not interfere with investigational trials that could support a medical product’s development or marketing approval for the treatment indication, and;
• all necessary regulatory/institutional approvals have been obtained to allow the administration of the investigational medical product.
Requests for access to investigational medical products must be made by a qualified and licensed physician and will be evaluated by Epirium. Patients interested in seeking expanded access to an Epirium investigational medical product should talk to their physician. Qualified and licensed physicians may make compassionate use / expanded access requests by contacting Epirium by e-mail at info@epirium.com. Epirium anticipates it will acknowledge receipt of such requests within five business days of their receipt
* Compassionate use programs include requests for access under section 561(b) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as well as ‘Right to Try’ legislation.

Erytech’s Public Policy – Compassionate Use (Expanded Access)

Erytech has no marketing approvals for any of its products throughout the globe.

Erytech is a science-led organization researching and developing new medicines through its ERYCAPS® platform. We are currently operating in North America and Europe.

This policy sets out the general principles for Erytech providing compassionate use. It is intended as global guidance, although Erytech will act in strict accordance with all local country laws and regulations on providing compassionate use.

Erytech’s lead product, eryaspase, is supported by clinical evidence from late stage clinical development1.

Erytech is currently conducting late stage clinical trials in second-line pancreatic cancer (Trybeca-1) in Europe and the US, and in first-line Triple Negative Breast Cancer (Trybeca-2) in Europe. More details, including participating investigator centres, can be found on CT.gov or by sending an email to:

medaffairs@erytech.com

Erytech recognises that not all cancer patients will be suitable candidates for these studies. Where enrolment into a clinical trial is not an option for them, it may be in the interest of patients to have access to eryaspase. Under these circumstances, and where patients are in a life-threatening situation with no satisfactory alternative treatment options, Erytech may provide a treating healthcare professional (HCP) with an investigational medicine such as eryaspase.

As general guidance, Erytech will consider providing Compassionate Use according to the following:

• Erytech considers the appropriateness of compassionate use for all our investigational medicines early on in the planning of our research programmes. At an early stage in a medicine’s development there could be only limited understanding. For example:

  • Uncertainty on the best way to provide the medicine to patients, such as the exact dose to use and frequency.
  • Establishing the medicine’s efficacy and safety profile.

- Erytech provides compassionate use in two ways:

  • Formal programmes
    • Patient populations meeting specific criteria managed under a compassionate use protocol.
  • Named (or individual) patients where appropriate and subject to fulfillment of our criteria.

All requests for compassionate use, which must be made by an HCP, will be considered by Erytech and according to the following:
o Patients are in a life-threatening situation.
o There are no satisfactory alternative treatments (confirmed by the HCP).
o There is sufficient evidence to believe the potential benefit to the patient justifies the risk.
• Compassionate use decisions are made by Erytech’s Chief Medical Officer and are final.

Other key considerations include:

• Any concern that compassionate use of the investigational medicine might somehow compromise any related clinical trial or regulatory pathway.
• Restricted to countries where Erytech is able to provide its product. Currently, this is North America and Europe.
• That use in formal progammes will only take place in countries where Erytech intends to seek regulatory approval and to make the medicine available; the same limitation will not necessarily apply for named (or individual) patients.
• That the proposed compassionate use complies with local laws and regulations.

These criteria ensure Erytech has a consistent approach for our decisions on compassionate use.


To investigate further options for the appropriate access to Erytech’s medicines, any HCP can contact Erytech by sending an email to:

medaffairs@erytech.com

Erytech will acknowledge receipt of a compassionate use request submitted by an HCP within 48 hours.

Patients interested in accessing an Erytech medicine for compassionate use should talk to their doctors.

Erytech is committed to transparency in its interactions with HCPs and health care organizations/institutions consistent with applicable laws and/or codes of practice applicable to the pharmaceutical industry. Erytech will fulfil all regulatory requirements to make public information about our compassionate use activities.

ER-004 COMPASSIONATE USE/EXPANDED ACCESS POLICY in XLHED

Expanded access/Compassionate use refers to the use of an investigational therapy, that have not yet been approved by government regulatory agencies, outside a clinical trial, for patients with serious or life- threatening diseases or conditions who lack therapeutic alternatives.

Esperare’s mission is to advance treatments for rare diseases and to promote treatment accessibility through a patient-centered approach.
Accordingly, a Patient Advisory Council dedicated to the XLHED program has been established and provides the opportunity to Esperare and patient groups representatives to work in close collaboration. In particular, clinical development plans are discussed in order to refine development and generate robust and necessary data for an application and to contribute to the common goal of giving the greatest chance of success to this program, with the ultimate objective of maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks for XLHED patients and their families.

Requests for compassionate use/expanded access will be considered on a case by case basis , in accordance with applicable regulations and in alignment with our mission and values and with the safety of the patient and childbearing mother as a priority. Of note, ER-004 is delivered to the patient before birth by injection into the amniotic fluid, an untried route of administration that requires careful consideration in each individual case.

Inquiries regarding the expanded access may be sent to info.er004@esperare.org.
Esperare will endeavor to acknowledge receipt of any expanded access questions or requests within 5 business days.

HER2-positive Breast Cancer

This single arm, multicenter study provides the fixed-dose combination of pertuzumab and trastuzumab for subcutaneous injection (PH FDC SC) administered at home by a home health nursing provider for patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer who are currently receiving pertuzumab (Perjeta) and trastuzumab (Herceptin) by intravenous administration (P+H IV). The main objective is to enable continuity of care during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study will enroll approximately 400 participants with HER2+ breast cancer who have completed concurrent chemotherapy with P+H IV and are currently receiving or will be receiving maintenance therapy with pertuzumab and trastuzumab. Participants will receive treatment every 3 weeks and continue treatment unless early cessation is necessary due to disease recurrence, disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or participant withdrawal. Only participants with HER2+ early breast cancer will receive PH FDC SC to complete 18 cycles of dual blockade, including the P+H IV they received prior to enrolling in this study. The Sponsor may decide to terminate the study when the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer a risk for this patient population.

Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

104317: The market authorisation application for mepolizumab for the indication of hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) was filed in 2008, but later the file was withdrawn due to outstanding questions from regulator's raised from the application. On the basis of sponsor's evaluation, participants with life-threatening HES who have documented failure (lack of efficacy or a contra-indication) to at least 3 standard HES therapies (compassionate use) and participants who have participated in a previous GSK sponsored study in HES (long-term access) can be consider for mepolizumab treatment where the country regulation permits. In this study, participants will receive mepolizumab in an open-labelled manner, and limited data will be collected to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of mepolizumab. 201956: This is a Long-term Access Programme (LAP) which aims to support provision of mepolizumab, until it is commercially available, to eligible subjects with severe asthma who participated in a GSK-sponsored mepolizumab clinical study in severe asthma. Eligible subjects will initiate mepolizumab within a 6-month period following the individual subject's last scheduled visit in their preceding clinical study. For each subject benefit versus risk will be assessed throughout the study to support continued treatment with mepolizumab. 112562: To provide a mechanism for expanded access to mepolizumab therapy for eligible patients with HES. Whenever possible, use of an investigational medicinal product by a patient as part of a clinical trial is preferable. However, when patient enrollment in a clinical trial is not possible (such as when the patient is not eligible for ongoing clinical trials or the patient is not able to attend investigational sites), appropriate patients may receive mepolizumab through expanded access. This expanded access protocol was designed to allow access to mepolizumab for HES patients with seriously debilitating or life-threatening disease that are not able to enroll in clinical trials, including those patients that have already participated in a mepolizumab clinical trial.

Gyroscope Therapeutics’ mission is to preserve people’s sight and fight the devastating impact of blindness around the world. We embarked on this journey because each year millions of people lose their vision due to diseases that we believe may one day be treatable. Our current focus is to discover and develop pioneering gene therapies for one of the leading causes of vision loss – age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

To realise this mission, it is our duty to conduct the research and clinical trials necessary to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of our investigational medicines. We believe that rigorous clinical trials are the most appropriate way to do this. We are committed to working closely with researchers, doctors, clinical trial site teams, patients and families to enrol, conduct and analyse our studies. If successful, data from these studies may support submissions to regulatory authorities (such as the FDA and EMA) for potential approval – with the ultimate goal of making our medicines available to as many eligible patients in need as safely and quickly as possible.

At this time, we are not making our investigational gene therapy, GT005, available on an expanded access basis anywhere in the world (expanded access is sometimes also referred to as compassionate use or pre-approval access). For now, participation in one of our clinical trials is the only way to receive our investigational gene therapy. This decision was made after careful evaluation of many factors, including: the safety and effectiveness of GT005 is still being evaluated in early stage clinical trials; our manufacturing capacity for GT005; considerations related to one-time gene therapies; and, what we believe is in the best interest of patients.

We understand there are currently no approved treatments for dry AMD, which is why we are working hard to develop our gene therapies as quickly as we can. There are many clinical trials evaluating potential new therapies for this devastating condition. We recommend that you talk to your doctor about what is right for you.

If you are interested in participating in one of Gyroscope’s clinical trials and would like more information, or if you have any questions about this expanded access policy, please talk to your doctor or contact us. We anticipate acknowledging receipt of expanded access questions or requests sent to us within five (5) business days of receipt.

More information about Gyroscope’s ongoing clinical trials can be found by visiting the links below.

We will continue to evaluate the possibility of expanded access as we advance development of our investigational medicines. As authorised by the 21st Century Cures Act, Gyroscope may revise this posted expanded access policy at any time.

The availability of this policy or any revised version shall not serve as a guarantee of access to GT005 or any other investigational medicines by any individual patient.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Imara is dedicated to developing novel therapeutics for patients with sickle cell disease and other hemoglobinopathies. Sickle cell disease represents a critical unmet medical need globally in which it is considered as a rare disease in many parts of the world, including in the United States, and as an endemic condition in several African countries. Imara’s lead product candidate, IMR-687, is under development for the treatment of sickle cell disease.

Expanded access may provide an avenue to use an investigational product, such as IMR-687, outside a clinical trial to diagnose, monitor, or treat a serious condition or disease in a patient. Imara has used guidelines from the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) and other regulatory agencies to develop the following criteria for when expanded access may be made available on a case-by-case basis for individual patients: 

•    Ongoing or planned clinical studies are not available to the patient, including lack of access due to geographical location of potential clinical trial sites, 
•    Significant evidence exists that supports both the safety and the efficacy of the investigational drug for the indication, 
•    The potential benefits to the particular patient seeking access to the investigational drug outweigh the potential risks to the patient,
•    An adequate supply of the investigational drug exists,
•    All necessary regulatory/institutional approvals have been obtained to allow drug administration, and 
•    The request for expanded access has been made by a qualified health care provider with expertise appropriate for the administration of the drug and for monitoring and managing the patient.

Imara supports expanded access programs and the need for a suitable policy, and it intends to provide patients with sickle cell disease access to IMR-687 at a suitable time and in the correct method when used outside a clinical trial. At this time, Imara believes that the most appropriate way to use our investigational lead product candidate, IMR-687, is by participation in one of our clinical trials (https://clinicaltrials.gov/).

Outside of a clinical trial, access to KalVista’s investigational products would be considered only under limited circumstances, and as permitted by applicable law, in the following situations:
   - KalVista may provide continued access to its investigational products to participants in a clinical trial once the trial is complete.
   - KalVista may provide physician-requested expanded access (also known as compassionate use) to its investigational products to patients who cannot join an active clinical trial of the investigational product providing the criteria below are met.

KC Pharma DFMO EXPANDED ACCESS POLICY

KC Pharma (KCP) is committed to serving patients by providing safe, fair, and sustainable patient access to its medicines. KCP may be able to provide patients access to its investigational drug, DFMO (also called eflornithine or difluoromethylornithine), outside of a clinical trial if certain conditions are met and if permitted by local law and regulation. The use of an investigational medical product (i.e., one that has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA]) outside of a clinical trial is known as Expanded Access (sometimes referred to as “compassionate use”). Generally, there are two types of Expanded Access—Group Expanded Access and Individual Patient Expanded Access. For more information on the different types of Expanded Access, visit the following FDA website: https://www.fda.gov/news-events/public-health-focus/expanded-access.

KCP collaborates with Beat Childhood Cancer Research Consortium (BCC) and Sponsor-Investigator, Dr. Giselle Sholler and makes investigational product DFMO 192 mg tablets available for pediatric oncology indications through multiple clinical trials and a Group Expanded Access Program (also called Intermediate Population Expanded Access). KCP does not currently provide Individual Patient Expanded Access.

Expanded Access may not always be available. Information about the Group Expanded Access Program, including a full list of eligibility criteria and site contact information can be found here: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03581240. In addition to meeting the eligibility criteria outlined at the link above, the following criteria must be met for entry into the Group Expanded Access Program:

• KCP must have sufficient supply of DFMO to reasonably accommodate the anticipated duration of treatment.

• The patient’s licensed physician must be willing to collaborate with the enrolling center.

• The patient’s physician and enrolling physician determine there is no comparable or satisfactory therapy available to treat the patient’s disease or condition and they agree that the patient is clinically stable and able to receive this medication.

• The patient’s parent/guardian is willing to travel with the patient to BCC at study entry and every three months while on treatment.

Licensed physicians may contact KCP with general requests or questions regarding Expanded Access at DFMOExpandedAccess@usworldmeds.com. KCP will endeavor to acknowledge general requests and questions within 5 business days. In line with the 21st Century Cures Act, KCP cannot guarantee access to investigational product to all patients. KCP may revise this policy at any time; at such time, the revised policy will be made publicly available.

Krystal Biotech, Inc.

Expected Application Timeframe
5 business days
Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

We are privileged to collaborate with clinical investigators and patients who participate in our studies to develop new, safe and effective therapies. At the same time, we understand that there are patients who will not be eligible for our clinical trials and may not have options for effective alternative therapies. In these circumstances, Krystal will consider providing a requesting physician with pre-approval access to a specific Krystal investigational drug for the treatment of an individual patient outside of a clinical trial when certain conditions are met. These conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:
•    The patient’s serious or life-threatening condition limits their ability to comply with certain clinical trial requirements, such as travel;
•    The investigational drug is in active clinical development with sufficient data available to determine an appropriate dose and schedule for the patient’s specific condition;
•    A benefit-risk analysis, based on both the available clinical data as well as the requesting physician’s assessment of the individual patient’s condition and medical history, supports making the investigational drug available;
•    Making the investigational drug available will not negatively impact or delay the conduct of clinical trials, regulatory review, or approval of the investigational drug for broader patient access; and
•    Adequate supply of the investigational drug is available. 
We continually evaluate the safety and efficacy profile of each of our investigational drugs based on evolving clinical data. Each disease, patient, and investigation drug under development is unique, and as such, requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 
Krystal is committed to evaluating all requests in a fair and equitable manner. All requests must be submitted by the patient’s treating physician; Krystal may require more detailed information in order to fully evaluate a request. The requesting physician must agree to obtain appropriate regulatory and ethics committee approvals and comply with regulatory obligations, including obtaining patient consent, patient monitoring and safety reporting. Each request will be given careful consideration by Krystal, whose decisions are final.

Kymab Limited

Phone Number & Email
Expected Application Timeframe
5 business days
Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Kymab is dedicated to developing novel human antibody-based therapeutics across a broad range of indications including immune mediated diseases.

Expanded access permits the use of an investigational therapy in patients with a serious or life-threatening illness when no satisfactory preventive or treatment options are available, and the patient is ineligible to participate in a clinical trial. Kymab understands and respects the need for appropriately managed expanded access program(s), and accordingly, this policy has been generated.

The following criteria are informed by regulatory guidelines for when expanded access may be made available to an investigational product on a case-by-case basis for individual patients:
• Ongoing or planned clinical studies are not available to the patient, including lack of access due to geographical location of potential clinical trial sites;
• Significant evidence exists that supports both the safety and the efficacy of the investigational drug for the indication;
• The potential benefits to the particular patient seeking access to the investigational drug outweigh the potential risks to the patient;
• An adequate supply of the investigational drug exists;
• All necessary regulatory/institutional approvals have been obtained to allow drug administration, and
• The request for expanded access has been made by a qualified health care provider with expertise appropriate for the administration of the drug and for monitoring and managing the patient.

KY1005 is currently in early clinical development. Kymab believes that the most appropriate way to ensure appropriate use of KY1005 at this stage in development is via approved clinical trials. The initial clinical trial(s) will permit the effective generation of safety and efficacy data for KY1005 which, when shared with the Regulatory Authorities will further guide the decision making regarding its safe and effective use in an expanded access program.

At this time, therefore, Kymab will not offer expanded access and will not currently accept expanded access requests for KY1005. Information regarding KY1005’s clinical trials will be made available at https://clinicaltrials.gov/.

If you have additional questions, please speak with your health care provider or contact KY1005ExpandedAccess@Kymab.com.

In accordance with the US 21st Century Cures Act, Kymab may revise this policy at any time.

LNS8801 is currently being developed for the treatment of advanced cancer and has fast track designation for the treatment of patients with metastatic or unresectable melanoma who have progressed on or after anti–programmed cell death receptor or ligand (anti–PD-1/L1) therapy. Linnaeus Therapeutics (Linnaeus) understands that advanced cancer patients with limited therapeutic options may desire to try promising experimental therapies such as LNS8801. The best way for patients to get access to investigational medicines is by taking part in clinical trials. Please search ClinicalTrials.gov for publicly available information related to Linnaeus’s ongoing clinical trials.

It is recognized that not all patients are eligible to enroll in clinical trials. Linnaeus is unfortunately unable to consider requests for expanded access (sometimes called compassionate use) at this time due to limited drug supply.

Linnaeus hopes that in the near future it will be able to consider requests so that patients in the United States with an immediately life-threatening condition or serious disease or condition who have exhausted other appropriate treatment options may, under the conditions described below and in accordance with applicable local law, have appropriate access to its investigational medicines in development before they are commercially available.

Consistent with Melinta Therapeutics’s mission to discover, develop, and commercialize a continual stream of novel antibiotics, we are focused on enrolling and conducting the clinical trials necessary to gain regulatory approvals and promptly make our medicines available to patients.  At Melinta Therapeutics, we believe that wherever possible, the use of an investigational medicine for a patient as part of a clinical trial is preferable; however, when patients with an unmet medical need are unable to access our investigational products through a clinical trial and all other options have been exhausted, we may be able to provide access through our compassionate use or expanded access program.

The evaluation criteria to determine if Melinta Therapeutics can provide expanded access to a specific Melinta Therapeutics investigational agent outside of a clinical trial include all of the following:
•    The patient has a serious or life-threatening illness or condition and is either no longer responsive to or no longer able to tolerate any available treatment option;
•    The investigational drug is in active clinical development with sufficient data available to determine an appropriate dose and schedule for the patient’s specific condition;
•    A benefit-risk analysis, based on both the available clinical data as well as the requesting physician’s assessment of the individual patient’s condition and history, supports making the investigational drug available;
•    Access is compliant with local rules and laws;
•    Making the investigational drug available will not negatively impact or delay the conduct of clinical trials or regulatory review or approval of the investigational drug for broader patient access; and
•    Adequate supply of the investigational drug is available.

All requests must be submitted by the patient’s treating physician and Melinta Therapeutics may require more detailed information in order to fully evaluate a request. The treating physician must agree to obtain appropriate regulatory and ethics committee approvals and comply with regulatory obligations, including obtaining patient consent, patient monitoring and safety reporting.

5 business days
Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Criteria for Evaluation

Merus considers many factors when evaluating a request for early access of an investigational medicine, such as (but not limited to) the strength of the currently available data, including clinical data together with patient condition and the benefit-risk profile, the impact of providing access to an investigational medicine on its clinical development program, including the ability to complete patient enrollment and other necessary aspects of the clinical trials, the phase of development, and probability and timing of regulatory approval.

A patient may be considered for early access to an investigational medicine based upon evaluation of the following minimum requirements (and other requirements may apply based on the circumstances):

*There must be adequate data supporting use of the investigational medication in the treatment of the patient’s disease.
*There are no adequate standard or investigational therapies available.
*Sufficient safety and efficacy data must exist for use of the medicine at the time of request.
*Sufficient information must be made available to make a benefit-risk analysis consistent with the establishment of an early access program.
*Sufficient clinical data is available to identify an appropriate patient-specific dose.
*A patient’s treating physician and Merus’ clinical team both believe there is the potential for the specific patient under consideration to reasonably expect benefit from the treatment.
*Adequate supply exists to support both the ongoing clinical trials and approved early access, until and if a product becomes commercially available.
*The patient is not eligible for or cannot participate in a Merus-sponsored study for the therapy being requested.
*Early access will not adversely impact the clinical development program or the regulatory approval process.
*The request must be made, unsolicited, by the patient’s treating physician. The physician must be appropriately licensed.
*The treating physician must also agree to comply with the safety and monitoring requirements.
*Where appropriate, demonstration of efficacy and safety may be required for continued treatment.
*Early access is permitted or approved in the country, region, and/or state where the investigational medicine will be administered.
*Any condition, in addition to those listed above, that in the opinion of Merus may preclude appropriate use of the investigational medicine, will be considered.
Given the unique nature of individual requests for early access to investigational medications, there is no guarantee a request will be fulfilled.

Merus may revise, suspend or terminate the early access program at any time.

All early access requires approval by the Chief Medical Officer and Merus management and decisions will be made based on scientific and other evidence available to Merus at the time of the request.

Clinical trials and the subsequent timely generation of safety and efficacy data are the most effective way of ensuring review and decision making by Regulatory Authorities. This ultimately has resulted in access to new, safe and effective approved medicines for patients.
Expanded access refers to the use of an investigational therapy outside a clinical trial when the primary purpose is to diagnose, prevent, or treat a serious condition in a patient. We understand the need for expanded access programs, and we recognize the importance of having an appropriate policy.

Disease/Category-Specific EA Policies/Criteria

FDA Orphan indication was granted for the company’s lead program, leriglitazone (MIN-102), a novel, selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) agonist, for the treatment of X-ALD. On 4 April 2018, Minoryx opened the IND for leriglitazone (company code MIN-102) with a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to assess the effect of leriglitazone on the clinical progression in male patients with Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN). Recently, the FDA granted Fast Track Status to leriglitazone for development in patients with X-ALD.
An Early Access program for leriglitazone may be opened if Minoryx determines that all the following criteria are met:
• The investigational drug is the subject of an active clinical development program and is not approved in any indication in the country concerned
• An adequate supply of the investigational drug exists to perform necessary clinical studies as well as to provide Early Access to patients who do not have alternative treatment options
• Early Access does not impede or compromise the clinical development or regulatory approval of the drug under investigation
• There are sufficient clinical data available with respect to both the investigational drug and the disease condition for which the application is being sought, to anticipate that any potential benefits from treatment are likely to outweigh any potential risks to the patient
At this time, Minoryx believes that participation in one of our clinical trials is the most appropriate way to access our investigational therapies. Minoryx continues to assess the eligibility requirements and criteria for Early Access to the investigational drug leriglitazone and will re-evaluate this policy from time to time.

Momenta is committed to developing safe and effective medicines to treat rare immune-mediated diseases with high unmet medical needs. Our goal is to ensure access to our investigational drug, at the appropriate time and in a clinically appropriate manner for patients.

Momenta’s Early/Expanded Access Policy (EAP) refers to the use of an investigational drug outside of a clinical trial. This is initiated when the primary purpose is to diagnose, prevent, or treat a serious condition in a patient, which is different from a clinical trial where more comprehensive safety and efficacy data are collected. At Momenta, we recognize and understand the need for an early/expanded access policy.

A number of factors consistent with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory agencies' guidelines should be taken into account when considering this kind of access.

Momenta’s Key Eligibility Requirements
To be eligible to access Momenta's investigational drugs under the EAP, participants must meet certain requirements, including, but not limited to:
- The illness must be serious or life-threating, with no other satisfactory treatment options (such as approved products or enrolling clinical trials)
- There is sufficient evidence that the potential benefit to the patient would likely outweigh the potential risks, based on all available safety and efficacy information
- Providing the investigational drug will not interfere with clinical trials that could support the investigational drug's development or marketing approval for the treatment indication

At this time, Momenta believes that participation in one of our clinical trials is the most appropriate way to access our investigational drugs. We do not currently provide our investigational drugs for use through expanded access.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

NeoMatrix Therapeutics (the Company) is the developer of a novel investigational drug product, cP12. The investigational drug product is being evaluated for the treatment of serious burn injuries and is still in the early stages of clinical development.
At the current stage of clinical development, NeoMatrix Therapeutics has chosen not to offer Expanded Access (EA) and will not accept EA requests for the investigational drug product. The justification of the restriction on EA is as follows:
•    There is insufficient safety and efficacy data to determine the risk-benefit profile for the treatment of serious burn injuries.
•    The Company’s ability to conduct clinical trials is limited. Offering EA under any setting at this time will impact the Company’s ability to execute its trials.
•    The organization does not have the personnel and other resources to offer EA on a fair and equitable basis.
•    The Company’s investigational drug product cP12 requires special handling and shipping.
As the company is not currently accepting EA requests, the specified policy information is not provided at this time. The status of EA restriction will be re-evaluated if early data from future clinical trials suggest that cP12 investigational treatment can offer benefits for patients facing serious or life-threatening conditions.

At Neuraptive, we are committed to developing first-in-class treatments for patients with peripheral nerve injuries (PNI) and physicians who treat them.

NTX-001 has been designed and is being developed as an adjunctive treatment for patients with nerve injuries and may restore and improve the recovery of neurons following nerve repair surgery. We will be conducting clinical studies to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of NTX-001, and to obtain regulatory approval and ultimately make NTX-001 available.

Before regulatory approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and foreign regulatory authorities, patients gain access to investigational treatments, such as NTX-001, by participating in clinical trials and by ‘Expanded access,’ also referred to as compassionate use, ‘Early Access,’ and ‘Emergency Use’. Patients who seek access to investigational medicines outside of an established clinical study and before health authority marketing authorization may wish to do so because standard treatments have failed, because they cannot tolerate already approved medicines, because they are unable to participate in a clinical study or because there are no comparable or satisfactory therapy options available outside of clinical trials. The primary purpose of expanded access is to use the investigational drug for patient treatment purposes rather than to gather data on safety, tolerability, and effectiveness.

Currently, Neuraptive does not offer an expanded access program and does not accept expanded access requests outside of clinical trials. We believe that access to NTX-001 should be limited to clinical trials until its safety, tolerability, and effectiveness for a particular indication has been determined and confirmed by regulatory authorities. Patient access to NTX-001 outside of a clinical trial may interfere with the conduct of our ongoing and future clinical trials, and may also disrupt the progress of our development program, which would, in turn, delay access to many patients in need.

Accordingly, while clinical trials are ongoing, we believe participation in our clinical trials is the only safe and appropriate way to access NTX-001. 

If you have questions about Neuraptive’s expanded access policy, please contact Neuraptive at info@Neuraptive.com. Please expect a response within five business days.

In line with the 21ST Century Cures Act, Neuraptive may revise this policy at any time.

Non-Tuberculous Mycobacterial (NTM) Infections

Lamprene®/Clofazimine, is a product of the pharmaceutical company named Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. Lamprene®/Clofazimine is approved by FDA (the U.S Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of leprosy. It is no longer available through pharmacies in the US. It is being tested in non-Novartis clinical studies for drug resistant tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). To be eligible for participation in this expanded access program, patients must have an NTM diagnosis. The treating physician has decided that this infection can be treated with Lamprene®/Clofazimine. This medicine is provided to the physician in an expanded access program. This means that this medicine is not registered for the treatment of NTM, but it can be used in special situations where there are no other possible treatments. For example, this may be because the patient has a type of Mycobacterial infection that is resistant or failed to respond optimally to other drugs, or because the patient has had side effects that prevent the use of other drugs. The physician must submit a patient registration form to initiate the patient approval process.

ACCESS TO PHARNEXT INVESTIGATIONAL MEDICINES PRIOR TO REGULATORY APPROVAL
(FOR US PATIENTS ONLY)
Pharnext develops innovative new medicines designed to address unmet medical needs of patients in major therapeutic areas. We are focused on creating new medicines that address important, real world concerns of patients and their families. We currently have investigational treatments in clinical trials for a number of different diseases, as described in the PRODUCTS section of our website at https://www.pharnext.com/en/products/r-d-pipeline
Pharnext’s goal is to efficiently bring safe and effective medicines to all appropriate patients by conducting rigorous clinical trials and obtaining marketing approval by regulatory authorities, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Prior to such approval, participation in one of our clinical trials is the optimal way for patients to gain access to our investigational medicines. However, we understand that some patients may not be able to participate in a clinical trial and may seek access to investigational treatments before they are approved. These situations are often referred to in various ways, including expanded access, early access, pre-approval access, compassionate use and emergency use.
If early data from clinical trials suggest that an investigational treatment can offer benefits for patients facing serious or life-threatening conditions, Pharnext may consider requests to provide access outside of a clinical trial. Our top priority when evaluating requests for expanded access to investigational medicines is to ensure that we are not putting patients at risk of unnecessary harm.
Pharnext will consider an expanded access program, or a single request for expanded access of an investigational medicine, only if all of the following criteria are met:
• The patient’s licensed physician submits an unsolicited request for expanded access
• The patient to be treated has a serious or immediately life-threatening illness and there is no satisfactory alternative therapy
• There are no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapies approved and available to treat the disease or condition
• There is preliminary clinical evidence of effectiveness and acceptable safety of the investigational treatment for that patient’s condition
• The potential benefit of the investigational medicine to the patients is greater than the potential risk
• Staff and other required resources are available to provide the product and there is an adequate supply of the investigational medicine
• Providing the investigational medicine will not interfere with the timely completion of clinical trials that could lead to marketing approval and thereby could delay its availability to other patients
• Expanded access will only occur in a country where Pharnext expects to file for regulatory approval of the product
Patients interested in obtaining access to a Pharnext investigational therapy must do so via their physician. Physicians should contact Pharnext Medical Information Center at medical@pharnext.com. All requests will be carefully considered, and a written or oral response will be provided to the treating physician within two weeks of receiving a request. For further information on available expanded access programs, visit www.clinicaltrials.gov and search ‘expanded access programs’.

Glycogen Storage Disease Type II
Glycogenosis 2

Pompe disease (also known as glycogen storage disease Type II) is caused by a deficiency of a critical enzyme in the body called acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA). Normally, GAA is used by the body's cells to break down glycogen (a stored form of sugar) within specialized structures called lysosomes. In patients with Pompe disease, an excessive amount of glycogen accumulates and is stored in various tissues, especially heart and skeletal muscle, which prevents their normal function. The objective of this protocol is to provide enzyme replacement therapy with rhGAA on an expanded access basis, to severely affected patients with infantile-onset Pompe disease for whom there is no alternative treatment and who do not meet the clinical characteristics described in the inclusion criteria for participation in other Genzyme Corporation-sponsored study currently enrolling patients with infantile-onset Pompe disease.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Triumvira Immunologics, Inc. is dedicated to developing new therapies that have a positive impact on patient health, and to serving patients, patient families and patient communities through education, empathy, and awareness. Consistent with Triumvira, Inc.’s mission to bring innovative medicines to patients with serious or life-threatening illnesses or conditions, we are focused on enrolling and conducting the clinical trials necessary to gain regulatory approvals to make our medicines available broadly to patients as quickly as possible. We are privileged to collaborate with clinical investigators and with patients who participate in our studies to develop new, safe and effective therapies. We believe this approach will serve patients who could be helped by the therapies we are developing.

At the same time, we understand that there are seriously ill patients who will not be eligible for our clinical trials and may not have options for alternative therapies, including investigational therapies in trials being conducted by other sponsors. In these circumstances, Triumvira, Inc. will consider providing a requesting physician with pre-approval access to a specific investigational drug, for the treatment of an individual patient outside of a clinical trial, when certain conditions are met. These conditions include the following:

• The patient has a serious or life-threatening illness or condition and is either no longer responsive to or no longer able to tolerate any available treatment option;
• The investigational drug is in active clinical development with sufficient data available to determine an appropriate dose and schedule for the patient’s specific condition;
• A benefit-risk analysis, based on both the available clinical data as well as the requesting physician’s assessment of the individual patient’s condition and history, supports making the investigational drug available;
• Making the investigational drug available will not negatively impact or delay the conduct of clinical trials or regulatory review or approval of the investigational drug for broader patient access; and
• Adequate supply of the investigational drug is available.

We continually evaluate the benefit-risk profile of each of our investigational drugs based on evolving clinical data. Each compound under development is different and the fact that one investigational drug is made available for the treatment of a particular patient does not mean it will be made available in response to other requests on behalf of other patients whose circumstances and medical histories may be different, or that a different investigational drug will be made available under our policy. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Triumvira is committed to evaluating all requests in a fair and equitable manner. All requests must be submitted by the patient’s treating physician; Triumvira may require more detailed information in order to fully evaluate a request. The requesting physician must agree to obtain appropriate regulatory and ethics committee approvals and comply with regulatory obligations, including obtaining patient consent, patient monitoring and safety reporting. Each request will be given careful consideration by Triumvira whose decisions are final. Physicians seeking pre-approval access for patients with no alternative treatment options should submit their requests to Partners@Triumvira.com. We regularly monitor this mailbox and will use our best efforts to acknowledge each submitted request within 3 business days after receipt.

TVAX Biomedical

Expected Application Timeframe

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

TVAX Biomedical, Inc. (TVAX) is committed to developing immunotherapies for patients with serious cancers. Our goal is to provide access to our investigational therapies primarily through clinical trials. At this time, TVAX does not have any investigational immunotherapy product available for expanded access.

“Expanded Access” refers to the use of an investigational therapy outside of a clinical trial for potential treatment of a serious condition in a patient. The US Food and Drug Administration has set forth guidelines when considering expanded access.

TVAX is not currently making its investigational immunotherapy product candidates available on an expanded access basis anywhere in the world. Requests for expanded access to TVAX Biomedical’s investigational immunotherapy product candidates must come from the patient’s treating physician because only physicians can enroll patients in a clinical trial or the expanded access program.

Certain therapies, like TVAX Immunotherapy, are made through complex manufacturing processes. TVAX seeks to retain the ability to make and supply product in a fair and equitable manner and in a volume that assures adequate manufacturing capacity for clinical trials and development programs. TVAX believes that participation in one of its’ clinical trials is the most appropriate way to access these investigational therapies.

At this time, TVAX is not currently making its unapproved therapies available on an expanded access or right to try basis. In the event TVAX decides to consider expanded access or right to try use, TVAX will evaluate and respond to each request that it receives on a case-by-case basis.

If you have questions, please speak with your physician or contact TVAX at info@tvaxbiomedical.com.

Consistent with the 21st Century Cures Act, TVAX may revise this policy at any time.

At Viela Bio, we work every day to improve the lives of people impacted by serious, underserved, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. We share the urgency of patients seeking new treatments for potentially life-altering diseases, and understand the interest in accessing our therapies outside of clinical trials and prior to regulatory approval.

Expanded access, also referred to as compassionate use, is a channel through which the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows physicians to request investigational medicines for patients. We do not currently offer any expanded access programs, as we are focusing our resources – including supply of complex investigational medicines – on clinical trials and regulatory approval.

We encourage patients who are interested in accessing therapies in our pipeline to talk to their doctor about participating in a clinical trial. Information about all of our trials, including eligibility criteria and locations, is available at ClinicalTrials.gov.

If we are able to offer expanded access in the future, we will update this policy. If you have further questions, please email eap@vielabio.com.
