SymBio's Expanded Access Policy

What is expanded access use?
Expanded access (also known as "compassionate use") is a potential pathway for a patient with an immediately life-threatening condition or serious disease or condition to gain access to an investigational medical product for treatment outside of clinical trials when no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy options are available.

Expanded access may be appropriate when all the following apply.

  • The patient has a serious disease or condition, or whose life is immediately threatened by his or her disease or condition.
  • There is no comparable or satisfactory alternative therapy to diagnose, monitor, or treat the disease or condition.
  • The enrollment of the patient in a clinical trial is not possible.
  • The potential patient benefit justifies the potential risks of treatment.
  • Providing the investigational medical product will not interfere with investigational trials that could support a medical product's development or marketing approval for the treatment indication.

What is SymBio's expanded access policy?
SymBio Pharmaceuticals is not making its investigational drug, brincidofovir, available on an expanded access basis at this time.

Brincidofovir is not currently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor any other regulator for any indication, except for the approval granted by the FDA for the treatment of smallpox. SymBio is committed to making brincidofovir available to patients in need as soon as possible through expedited clinical development. An Investigational New Drug (IND) application has been submitted for a Phase 2 dose-confirmation clinical trial of the brincidofovir intravenous formulation (BCV IV) for pediatric patients with serious adenoviral diseases. The efficacy and safety profile of BCV IV will be evaluated in a subsequent Phase 3 clinical trial. BCV IV may or may not be effective in the treatment of serious adenoviral diseases, and use of BCV IV may cause serious unexpected side effects. Therefore, BCV IV is currently only available through participation in the clinical trial and not available through an expanded access or compassionate use program at this time.
