About Curium's EAP
Expanded Access Program
Expanded access is a general term used to refer to a variety of regulatory mechanisms available to provide treatment access to patients with life threatening or severely debilitating disease for whom commercially available therapies or diagnostics have failed or are not available.
Curium’s decision to open an Expanded Access Program is based on regulatory guidance only when all the following criteria are met:
- 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 diagnosis, monitor, or treat the disease or condition
- Patient enrollment in a clinical trial is not possible
- The potential patient benefit justifies the potential risks of the treatment use and those potential risks are not unreasonable in the context of the disease or condition to be treated; and
- Providing the investigational drug for the requested use will not interfere with the initiation, conduct, or completion of clinical investigations that could support marketing approval of the expanded access use or otherwise compromise the potential development of the expanded access use.
NOTE: the term “treatment” is used interchangeably to refer to use of an investigational drug when the primary purpose is to diagnose, monitor, or treat a patient’s disease or condition.
The EAP will provide access in a manner that:
- Does not threaten enrollment in or conduct of controlled clinical trials for the product
- Meets all regulatory requirements
- Does not pose added risk to patient safety
- Can be financially sustained
EAPs are not set up to support commercial objectives nor are they meant to support analysis or test a hypothesis though the data may be used in a supplementary fashion.
