Learn About Expanded Access and Other Treatment Options
When a patient does not respond to current approved treatments for a variety of reasons, other options still may be available. For serious and life-threatening illnesses, some patients may want to talk to their Healthcare Provider about trying an investigational drug either through a clinical trial or expanded access, or trying an approved drug that is used for a different purpose than what is listed on the FDA-approved drug label (this use is called off-label).
It is helpful to really understand what an investigational drug is before deciding that one might be right for you. Learn the basics of what they are and how you can get access.
