Global Blood Therapeutics (GBT) reported a case study in which a sickle cell disease (SCD) patient was granted compassionate access to the company’s ongoing Phase 3 HOPE study of voxelotor (NCT03036813). The patient had severe, transfusion-refractory anemia and experienced rapid improvements with the therapy.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) developed the option of compassionate access, also called “compassionate use,” to enable patient enrollment in an “impossible scenario,” i.e. when a patient is ineligible for ongoing trials or no ongoing trials exist. With this measure, patients may be able to receive the investigational therapy when appropriate.
