Sphingomyelin Lipidosis

The objective of this program is to provide access to enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) with olipudase alfa for certain patients with ASMD, a severe, life threatening disease, that could not participate in the olipudase clinical trials. The program will provide access to olipudase alfa prior to registration and the availability of commercial product (including reimbursement where applicable) in the country of the patient.

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.

Autologous Stem Cell Transplant

The purpose of this program is to provide access to AMD3100 for patients who would benefit from an autologous stem cell transplant but who have either previously failed to collect enough cells for transplant following standard therapy or are not considered by their physician to have a reasonable chance of collecting enough cells for transplant.

Glycogen Storage Disease Type II (GSD-II)
Pompe Disease (Late-Onset)
Acid Maltase Deficiency Disease
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 expanded access study is to provide patients with Pompe disease in the United States (US), access to alglucosidase alfa produced from a scaled up manufacturing process for a limited time until production at this scale is approved for commercial use by the Food and Drug Administration.

Pancreatic Cancer

Procedure for Submitting Requests to Savara:
Savara will consider expanded access requests from treating physicians subject to US laws and regulations. All requests should be submitted via e-mail to EAP.US@savarapharma.com

Process for Review of Requests:
Savara is committed to a fair and impartial evaluation of each request for access to its investigational products. Therefore, all decisions are based solely on clinical circumstances and are guided by the criteria outlined below. Patients will be referred to ongoing clinical trials as the primary way to access investigational products. 

When evaluating requests for expanded access, Savara considers all of the following criteria: 
1. The patient for whom expanded access is requested suffers from a disease or condition that is serious or life-threatening. 
2. There are no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapies or clinical trials available. 
3. Sufficient preliminary efficacy and safety data exist to support an assessment that the benefit for the patient outweighs the potential risks and that the potential risks are not unreasonable in the context of the disease or condition being treated. 
4. Sufficient clinical data are available to identify an appropriate dose (amount and frequency) of the investigational drug. 
5. There is adequate drug supply to support the ongoing and necessary clinical trials as well as to support approved expanded access in a sustainable and equitable manner, until and if product becomes commercially available.
6. The patient is not eligible to participate in any ongoing clinical trials of the investigational drug. 
7. Expanded access will not adversely affect the clinical development program, in particular, the initiation, conduct, or completion of the clinical trials that are required for regulatory approval. 
8. The unsolicited request is made by a U.S. qualified and licensed physician who will take primary responsibility for supervising use of the investigational product from Savara and will comply with all applicable FDA regulatory requirements associated with treatment and use of an investigational product. 
9. All required regulatory and institutional approvals have been obtained. The patient must provide written informed consent. 

Requests for expanded access will be individually reviewed in accordance with these criteria. Savara is committed to evaluating all requests for expanded access in a fair and equitable manner. All requests will be evaluated by medical professionals and decisions will be based on available scientific evidence at the time of the request. 

Questions regarding Savara's ongoing U.S. expanded access program(s) can be forwarded to: EAP.US@savarapharma.com 

This policy is not applicable to countries outside the U.S. If you have questions on expanded access in a non-US country, please submit your request to info@savarapharma.com

Scilex Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Scilex Holding Company (Scilex) is dedicated to the development and commercialization of non-opioid pain management products using innovative delivery technologies and is actively evaluating the safety and effectiveness of these therapies.

Expanded Access Policy
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established criteria for the provision of investigational medicines* to patients outside of clinical trials (compassionate use/expanded access). That guidance provides that expanded access is a potential pathway for a patient with a serious or immediately life-threatening disease or condition to gain access to an investigational medicine for treatment outside of clinical trials when no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy options are available(1).
Expanded access may be appropriate when the following factors have been considered(2):

  • Patient has a serious or life-threatening illness or condition and is not responsive to or 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
  • Patient enrollment in a clinical trial is not possible
  • Potential patient benefit justifies the potential risks of treatment
  • Providing the investigational medicine will not negatively impact or delay the conduct of clinical trials or regulatory review or approval of the investigational medicine for broader patient access
  • Adequate supply of the investigational medicine is available

Currently, Scilex is not accepting applications for expanded access of our investigational medicines. Our development resources are focused on conducting clinical trials that evaluate the safety and effectiveness of our investigational medicines for treating acute and chronic pain. Our clinical trial programs are the primary way to gain access to a Scilex investigational medicine and Scilex encourages patients to speak with their treating physicians about participating in a clinical trial whenever possible.
Scilex may reconsider making its investigational medicines available through an Expanded Access Program in the future as we continually evaluate each of our investigational medicines for appropriateness of expanded access based on FDA’s established criteria.
Healthcare providers, patients and caregivers interested in learning more about Scilex’s investigational therapies should contact Scilex at eap@scilexpharma.com.
Additional information regarding our clinical trials may be accessed on www.clinicaltrials.gov.

*This policy is subject to change. Scilex may revise this policy at any time and may establish different expanded access policies for each investigational medicine under development. The posting of this policy by Scilex shall not serve as a guarantee of access to any specific investigational medicine by any individual patient.

**Investigational medicines have not yet been approved or cleared by FDA and FDA has not found these products to be safe and effective for their specific use. Furthermore, the investigational medicine may, or may not, be effective in the treatment of the condition, and use of the product may cause unexpected serious side effects.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria
At SIMR we aspire to discover and develop differentiated therapeutics for the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain. SIMR’s lead product, SR419, is a candidate drug with novel mechanism of action for the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain, which is discovered and developed by SIMR. Peripheral neuropathic pain is the pain caused by damage or pathological changes of peripheral nerves, including post-herpetic neuralgia, diabetic peripheral neuropathy, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, and postoperative peripheral neuropathy. The results of preclinical studies show that SR419 has excellent safety and pharmacokinetic properties. In addition, SR419 demonstrates the potential of better analgesic efficacy and fewer side effects than pregabalin, a commonly used first-line treatment for neuropathic pain. SR419 has completed phase I clinical trials in the Australia and China with positive safety results, and is planning to carry out international multi-center phase II clinical trials. At SIMR, we are focused on enrolling and conducting clinical trials aimed at gaining regulatory approval, making SR419 available to patients as quickly as possible. As such, we believe participation in our clinical trials is the most appropriate way to access SR419 at this stage of development. Information about our clinical trials, including eligibility criteria and locations, is available at www.clinicaltrials.gov. SIMR understands the interest of patients in accessing SR419 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 SR419. SIMR 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.

Single-Patient EA Policies/Criteria

Expanded access is used to describe treatment with an investigational product for a patient with a serious or life-threatening illness or condition when there are no comparable or satisfactory alternative treatments available and the patient is not eligible for a clinical trial. These investigational products are not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The expanded access pathway is often used by commercial pharmaceutical companies to provide their products before they are approved.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (St. Jude) is dedicated to its mission of advancing cures for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. St. Jude provides the best possible care for our patients. We also make discoveries that will lead to better treatment for children and young adults around the world. We accomplish this by offering patients participation in clinical trials such as the LVXSCID-ND study (NCT01512888). 

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is not a commercial pharmaceutical company and does not have the capability to manufacture products at an industrial level. Supplies of the investigational product for the LVXSCID-ND study are limited and earmarked for the completion of a prospective research guided clinical trial. At this time, the safety and efficacy of the product is under investigation. St. Jude is not able to provide the investigational product in the LVXSCID-ND study for expanded access. If your child has been diagnosed with X-Linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID-X1), please contact the physician below to discuss possible treatment options.
