The Expanded Access Summit®, our flagship event, is the world’s largest annual conference on pre-market access to medicines.  The Summit focused on feasibility for all stakeholders and the integration of well-designed access programs in the modern clinical development process.

Expanded Access Explained

Global and Large Scale

Most countries allow “treatment-use” of new pre-market medicines for serious unsolved health conditions. Since 1987, Expanded Access Programs in the U.S. have been used to treat more than 250,000 patients in a range of serious diseases.

In Harmony with Ongoing Research

EAPs have been used widely to enroll large numbers of on-label patients who are outside the inclusion/exclusion criteria of a product’s research trials.  Properly designed Expanded Access trials or “Expanded Access programs” (EAPs) have also helped to recruit and retain eligible patients in research trials, and in many cases generated structured data that sped the development and market approval of the particular product.  Despite widespread misconception, we have found no evidence of an authorized EAP impeding the enrollment of any research study or negatively impacting clinical development of the particular product.

Bringing Inclusivity to Clinical Development

Expanded Access regulations require that treatment is the primary objective in these programs and therefore grant EAP sponsors privileges that would not be appropriate for research trials. Compared to the cost of clinical research, the per-patient cost of Expanded Access can be very low.
