Compassionate Use And Expanded Access Programs
If you have exhausted standard treatments and want to turn to experimental therapies, consider the following guidelines:
Step 1: Look at all the available Clinical Trials to see if there is one that fits your need and for which you can qualify.
Step 2: If you don't qualify for a particular study, there are two other options for obtaining the drugs:
- Expanded access programs
- So-called individual "compassionate use" or Individual Special Exemptions
Each of these alternatives are discussed in other sections of this article.
