Expanded access eRequest app allows physicians to submit EA requests online - The Cancer Letter
The Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA, with input from experts at FDA, has introduced an Expanded Access eRequest app to streamline expanded access for individual patients in non-emergency settings.
“Time is critical when patients have a serious or life-threatening disease or condition and do not have other therapeutic options,” FDA Principal Deputy Commissioner Amy Abernethy said in a statement. “We want to make it easier for physicians to apply for expanded access for their patients and allow these health care providers to focus on the clinical aspects of care.”
The eRequest online app walks physicians and other healthcare providers screen-by-screen through the expanded access process—from determining if expanded access is appropriate for their patient to submitting the request to FDA.
