GLIOVAC/ERC1671 Right-to-Try Program
Patients facing serious illnesses and who have exhausted all available treatment options often want to know if and how they can receive early access to investigational products that haven’t yet been approved by government regulatory agencies. ERC is committed to making its products available to patients, when appropriate, throughout the development process.
ERC believes participating in clinical trials is the best way for patients to access medicines prior to approval. In pursuit of ERC’s objective to develop highly effective and safe therapeutic approaches, the successful completion of a clinical trial program of investigational products is the most effective way of ensuring timely review and decision-making by government regulatory agencies. This will ultimately result in access to new, safe and effective approved therapies for patients. For these reasons, ERC prioritizes access to its investigational products through active and accruing clinical trials and encourages interested patients to enroll.
Despite best efforts, it is not possible for all patients to participate in clinical trials. For that reason, ERC has established a Right-to-Try program to make promising products available to patients facing serious or life-threatening conditions. Patients interested in seeking Right-to-Try access to an ERC investigational product should talk to their physician. An eligible physician may request access to one of ERC’s investigational products by completing the ERC Right to Try Request Form. Requests for further information about how to apply for Right-to-Try or determine qualifications and capabilities required to administer ERC investigational product can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
ERC typically will acknowledge receipt of a request for Right-To-Try, with required medical documentation, within three business days. ERC professionals will carefully consider requests taking into account access to open and accruing clinical trials, the serious/life-threatening nature of the disease, biological rational or clinical data supporting potential benefit medical appropriateness, and applicable laws and regulatory requirements. All physicians who receive ERC investigational product through Right-To-Try are required to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and contractual conditions, including those related to safety reporting.
