Liposomal daunorubicin (Daunoxome) and polyethylated glycol conjugated asparaginase (PEG-ASPA) in children with relapsed and refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia treated on compassionate basis. (1/35)

BACKGROUND: Daunoxome (DNX) is an encapsulated form of daunorubicin in liposomal vesicles with suggested better pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and lesser cardio toxicity than the free form. Polyethyl glycol asparaginase (PEG-ASPA), a modified form of L-asparaginase, has better activity and lesser immunogenicity than its native molecule. AIM: To evaluate on a compassionate basis, the combination of Daunoxome and PEG-ASPA, as regard to efficacy and toxicity, as a salvage treatment in refractory/relapsed childhood ALL. METHODS: The combination of these 2 drugs were used in 9 multiple relapsed or refractory ALL children on the basis of: DNX weekly 100 mg/m2 D1, 8, 15. PEG-ASPA single, 2500IU/m2 dose D15. Vinca alkaloids and corticosteroids were associated. RESULTS: Median hospital stay was 4 days (0-55). COMPLICATIONS: Neutropenia grade IV n=4, grade III infection n=6, grade II cardiac toxicity n=1, grade III allergy, grade III hemostasis disorders, thrombosis, n=1 respectively. All patients achieved complete remission (CR) except one who died from disease progression. 8 patients were subjected to hematopoietic stem cell transplantatation (HSCT). Two patients of them are alive and well, 4 died from transplant related causes and 2 from disease progression. CONCLUSION: Salvage treatment containing DNX and PEG-ASPA, of small sample childhood ALL with very advanced disease, is feasible as regard toxicity and response rate allowing to HSCT and possible cure.  (+info)

Compassionate use is a treatment option that allows the use of an unauthorised medicine. Compassionate use programmes are for patients who have a disease with no satisfactory authorised therapies or cannot enter a clinical trial. They are intended to facilitate the availability to patients of new treatment options under development- EMA site. Global access programmes, known by various names including compassionate use, named patient, expanded access and early access, provide a mechanism by which patients with rare diseases are able to access medicines that would otherwise be unavailable.. For rare and orphan diseases, these programmes can facilitate access to:. -medicines that are in clinical development,. -drugs unlicensed in a specific market but licensed elsewhere,. -drugs under assessment in the marketing authorisation application (MAA) process.. Importantly, through a global access programme, patients can access an orphan drug that may never be commercially available in their home country ...

In this study, participants will receive mepolizumab in an open-labelled manner, and limited data will be collected to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of mepolizumab.. 201956: This is a Long-term Access Programme (LAP) which aims to support provision of mepolizumab, until it is commercially available, to eligible subjects with severe asthma who participated in a ...
Bexsero (Novartis, New York, New York), the only vaccine in production that protects against MenB, was approved for use in Europe and Australia in January 2013 (1). Its distribution in response to an outbreak marks the first time the compassionate use or expanded access mechanism for drug approval (2, 3) has been granted to distribute a nontherapeutic biological drug to a group of healthy persons. This unprecedented evolution of events at Princeton has resulted in a flurry of media coverage falling into 3 main categories: support for a cooperative response between public health institutions and the university, concern that students are being used as guinea pigs for an untested product, and questions of fairness when many other groups are at risk for disease from MenB ...

In addition to being an example of unsubstantiated hype about regenerative medicine, the controversy around the Italy‐based Stamina Foundations unproven stem cell therapy represents another chapter in a continuing debate about how to balance patients requests for early access to experimental medicines with requirements for demonstrating safety and effectiveness. Compassionate use of the Stamina therapy arguably should not have been permitted under Italys laws, but public pressure was intense and judges ultimately granted access. One lesson from these events is that expert regulatory agencies may be the institutions most competent to make compassionate use decisions and that policies should include more specific criteria for authorizing compassionate use. But even where regulatory agencies make decisions based on clear rules, difficult questions will arise. ...

Therapies that address the underlying cause of PAH are urgently needed. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved tacrolimus in 1994 for use in lowering the risk of organ rejection in patients undergoing kidney transplant, and it is currently indicated for use in additional organ transplant settings and to treat atopic dermatitis.. Researchers completed a randomized, double-blind Phase 2a clinical trial with 23 class 1 and 2 PAH patients titrated to target blood levels. All target blood levels were well tolerated with no drug related serious adverse events, nephrotoxicity or incident diabetes.. In addition, tacrolimus was provided for compassionate use in three class 3 or 4 PAH patients. The compassionate use demonstrated dramatically reduced rates of hospitalizations and functional class improvements were observed.. We are currently focused on a proprietary formulation of tacrolimus for clinical development program and for commercial use. We are on track to file an Investigational ...
March 13, 2014 - 3:16 pm , By Jennifer Boggs , No comments yet Before its unfortunate drop in quality in its last few seasons, the medical drama House was one of my favorite shows, with its title character, a cranky, possibly drug-addicted doctor solving diagnostic riddles and saving lives with Sherlockian brilliance, and quite often breaking every rule in the book to do it. One episode in particular had House facing off with billionaire investor Vogel, who had thwarted his attempt to enroll a very sick patient in a clinical trial without mentioning to the trial investigator that she wouldnt fit the criteria, namely having just undergone a C-section. They have an impassioned exchange: Dr.: House: Hey! Youre killing her! Vogler: Really? See, I thought you were the one trying to ram her into a drug trial five minutes after surgery. Dr. House: She knew the risks! She was fully informed! Vogler: Yeah, well the guy running the study sure wasnt. Dr. House: Not his life, not his call! Vogler: His ...

Want to attend the live webinar on Sept. 10, 2020? Click here to register. Expanded access - compassionate use of drugs prior to FDA approval - is getting another big push by the agency. This is a huge opportunity for the most seriously ill patients. The FDA has taken extraordinary measures over the past five years to increase use of expanded access but with little resulting change. Congress addressed the issue in 2018 by enacting Right to Try legislation but the new expanded access pathway has hardly been used. Last year the FDA announced Project Facilitate - a dedicated FDA . . .
Expanded access, sometimes called compassionate use, is the use of an investigational medical product outside of a clinical trial (i.e., one that has not yet been approved). At Novelion Therapeutics, and our subsidiary Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, we are committed to increasing awareness of and knowledge about our expanded access programs and the procedures for obtaining access to human investigational drugs.

Amifampridine (pyridine-3,4-diamine, 3,4-diaminopyridine, 3,4-DAP) is used as a drug, predominantly in the treatment of a number of rare muscle diseases. The free base form of the drug has been used to treat congenital myasthenic syndromes and Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) through compassionate use programs since the 1990s and was recommended as a first line treatment for LEMS in 2006, using ad hoc forms of the drug, since there was no marketed form. Around 2000 doctors at Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris created a phosphate salt form, which was developed through a series of companies ending with BioMarin Pharmaceutical which obtained European approval in 2009 under the trade name Firdapse, and which licensed the US rights to Catalyst Pharmaceuticals in 2012. As of January 2017, Catalyst and another US company, Jacobus Pharmaceuticals, which had been manufacturing the free base form and giving it away for free since the 1990s, were racing to obtain FDA approval for their ...

In previous blogs, we have discussed stem cell therapy for non-standard indications, or what we call compassionate use cases. These are cases where there is limited data to show that stem cell therapy is effective however what results we do have, may look promising. Examples include kidney disease, canine back pain, as well as several other diseases/conditions for which stem cells may be beneficial. One such indication is Immune Mediated Polyarthritis, or IMPA for short. While IMPA is a form of arthritis, it is not the typical osteoarthritis that stem cells are used for regularly. Rather than being caused by a malformed joint, wear and tear or trauma, IMPA is caused by the patients own immune system. It is important to note that polyarthritis can be caused by an infection in the patients body. Distinguishing between an infection and IMPA is imperative because treatment options are very different. In this blog, we will discuss stem cell therapy for the treatment of IMPA.. In patients with ...
The Ebola outbreak that has devastated parts of west Africa represents an unprecedented challenge for research and ethics. Estimates from the past three decades emphasise that the present effort to contain the epidemic in the three most affected countries (Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone) has been insufficient, with more than 24,900 cases and about 10,300 deaths, as of March 25, 2015. Faced with such an exceptional event and the urgent response it demands, the use of randomised controlled trials (RCT) for Ebola-related research might be both unethical and infeasible and that potential interventions should be assessed in non-randomised studies on the basis of compassionate use ...
According to Beyond Pesticides recent report on state pesticide use on cannabis, California was one of six states silent on pesticide use on marijuana. Until now, the only discussion of the issue came from a 2012 report from the California Research Bureau, commissioned by CA Assembly member Linda Halderman, M.D. The report indicated that because no pesticide products were registered for use on cannabis by EPA, and given that applying a pesticide for an unregistered use is illegal under federal pesticide law, the state could confiscate any medical marijuana crop treated with a pesticide. However, it was noted that this conflicts with the states Compassionate Use Act, which guarantees ill Californians access to medical marijuana. Thus it was determined that growers could simply not spray pesticides in order to avoid potential confiscation. But because the state had not formulated any laws or regulations governing pesticide use on cannabis, the issue remained in a grey area.. The State Water ...
A bill that would allow terminally ill people to obtain experimental drugs appears headed to Governor Browns desk for the second year in a row. Brown vetoed a similar measure last year, but supporters believe conditions are right for him to sign it this time around. Brown said he vetoed last years Right-to-Try measure because he wanted time to see how changes to the FDAs Compassionate Use program streamlined the process of getting experimental drugs to terminal patients.. Nearly a year later, the new bills supporters say its time for California to step in with its own solution, because the modified federal initiative has not reduced the minimum 30-day wait for drugs.. The process may have to start over if the FDA has even one question, said the bills author, Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon (D-Whittier). Terminally ill patients can still end up waiting weeks and months for an approval.. Calderons measure would allow drug manufacturers to give certain terminally ill people ...

Five states have enacted laws giving terminally ill patients access to experimental drugs, and 25 other states are considering similar legislation. But its unclear whether these so-called right-to-try laws will help anyone other than state legislators wishing to be seen embracing a politically popular cause.. Before it approves drugs or other treatments for human use, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires rigorous clinical trials to ensure the drugs are safe and effective. These clinical trials can take years to complete. People with life-threatening illnesses who might benefit from an experimental treatment that is still a long way from approval have had two options. The first is to enter one of the clinical trials, which are not available to many due to geographic location and stage of illness.. The second way to gain access to an experimental drug is to apply under the FDAs expanded access program. These requests are typically granted; between 2010 and 2014, only 33 of ...

June 12, 2008 - The FDA designated for priority review, the New Drug Application (NDA) for GEs AdreView, a molecular imaging agent for the detection of neuroendocrine tumors in pediatric and adult patients, also encouraging the company to establish an expanded access program that is designed to grant physicians limited access to a novel agent prior to FDA approval. AdreView was submitted March 20, and accepted by the FDA May 20. A priority designation is intended for products or indications that address unmet medical needs. Under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act, the FDAs goal is to review and act on 90 percent of NDAs designated as priority review within six months of receipt.. The company began development of AdreView in 2004, and the agent was granted orphan-drug designation by FDA in December of 2006.. For more information: www.gehealthcare.com. ...
BACKGROUND. Monogenic Interferon (IFN)-mediated autoinflammatory diseases present in infancy with systemic inflammation, an IFN-response-gene-signature (IRS), inflammatory organ damage and high mortality. We used the janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor baricitinib with IFN-blocking activity in vitro, to ameliorate disease. METHODS. Between October 2011 and February 2017, 10 patients with CANDLE (chronic atypical neutrophilic dermatosis with lipodystrophy and elevated temperatures), 4 with SAVI (Stimulator of IFN genes (STING)-associated vasculopathy with onset in infancy), and 4 patients with other interferonopathies were enrolled in an Expanded Access Program. Patients underwent dose-escalation, benefit was assessed by reductions in daily disease symptoms and corticosteroid requirement. Quality-of-life, organ inflammation, changes in IFN-induced biomarkers, and safety were longitudinally assessed. RESULTS. 18 patients were treated for a mean duration of 3.0 years (1.5-4.9 years). The median daily ...
In a related real-world study presented at the same session, Graham Foster from Queen Marys University of London and colleagues looked at 467 hepatitis C patients with decompensated cirrhosis treated through the English expanded access programme.. More than 70% were men, most were white, the mean age was 56 years and 6% were HIV-positive. About half had HCV genotype 1, 41% had genotype 3 and the rest had other genotypes; 47% were treatment-experienced and 10% had received liver transplants.. These patients had MELD scores ranging from 6 to 36 (mean of about 12). Child-Pugh scores - another measure of liver disease severity - were ,7, including 66% with CP class B and 10% with class C (the most severe). More than 90% had past or present liver decompensation and many had ascites, bleeding varicose veins or encephalopathy. Others had non-hepatic manifestations deemed likely to lead to irreversible damage within a year or were judged by a review panel to have other exceptional ...
Source: Myeloma Research News. People with advanced multiple myeloma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) will soon be able to access Xpovio (selinexor) outside the U.S. through a managed access program.. This program, also known as a named patient program, allows patients and doctors in countries where a medicine is not yet approved or available access to them, provided the medicine is approved in one other country.. Karyopharm Therapeutics, the developer of Xpovio, partnered with Clinigen to open such a program. Under the agreement, Clinigen will distribute and facilitate access to Xpovio in 49 countries across Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe, it announced in a press release.. The therapy will be exclusively available to patients with either multiple myeloma or DLBCL, for whom Xpovio has been approved in the U.S.. Physicians can obtain the details of Xpovios named patient program by contacting Clinigens customer service team by phone (+44-1932-824-123, or ...

Enterra® Therapy, also known as the gastric electrical stimulator (GES), is an implantable device used to help stimulate the smooth muscles of the stomach in patients with refractory gastroparesis who have failed all drug treatment options. It may be placed either laparoscopically or through a laparotomy depending on the need of the patient.. Enterra was approved by the FDA in 2000 for use as a humanitarian device in cases of idiopathic or diabetic Gastroparesis. This means it is only available in certain hospitals which have been reviewed and approved to perform the procedure. Because it is humanitarian in nature, it is often not approved by insurance companies or the approval process can be complicated. Medtronic reps are available to assist in getting patients approved for the procedure.. While the device is not a cure for GP, it does improve nausea and vomiting symptoms in many patients. It does NOT cause the stomach to contract and will not aid digestion. The settings on the device are ...

Findings from the monitoring and evaluation activities showed that access to malaria treatment improved following the interventions in health facilities and drugs shops. Drug shops became more available to the community (from 24 shops for every 100,000 people in 2004 to 39 in 2008) and more accessible (from 71% of households within 5km of a shop in 2004 to 87% in 2008) following the ADDO roll-out. In addition, the 2006 change of treatment policy from SP to ALu led to an increase in the availability of antimalarial drugs in health facilities (from 40% to 80% of months in stock of the drug). Treatment was generally more expensive in drug shops compared to health facilities and prices increased by 50-80% in shops between 2004 and 2008. Nevertheless, antimalarial sales in private retail grew (from 49% to 59% of market shares). This is likely to be a result of increased availability and accessibility of shops but better quality of care may also have played a role. Unfortunately the ADDO programme was ...
