Project Facilitate: FDA’s Plan to Ease Expanded Access to Novel Therapies - The ASCO Post
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plans to provide oncologists with greater help in acquiring expanded access to investigational therapies. Deemed Project Facilitate, the pilot program was announced at a press briefing during the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting.
Project Facilitate is essentially a call center that will be run by the FDA Oncology Center of Excellence. It’s a single point of contact where FDA oncology staff will help oncology providers submit an expanded access request for an individual patient.
