BeyondSpring supports efforts to provide rapid access to investigational drugs for patients diagnosed with a serious or life-threatening disease or condition, with no current approved treatment options, or who have exhausted approved treatment options, or are underserved with currently available treatment or preventive options, and who are not eligible for clinical trials. Such individual use of an unlicensed investigational drug is often called "compassionate use" or "expanded access" but may go by other names. Unlike the use of an investigational new drug in a clinical trial setting, the primary purposes of expanded access is to use the investigational drug for patient treatment purposes, rather than to gather data on safety, tolerability and effectiveness.
It is important to remember that investigational medicinal products have not yet received regulatory approval; thus, their potential risks and benefits are not yet established. Physicians and patients should consider all possible benefits and risks when seeking access to an investigational medicinal product. Physicians who receive a BeyondSpring investigational drug for their patient(s) through expanded access must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, contractual conditions, safety reporting required by regulatory agencies, and protection of intellectual property.
Pursuant to the 21st Century Cures Act, the posting of this policy does not serve as a guarantee of access to any specific investigational drug for any individual patient. Any approval of expanded access to investigational drug(s) must always comply with applicable country-specific laws and regulations. This policy is subject to change. BeyondSpring may revise this policy at any time and may establish different expanded access policies for each investigational drug under development.
