A way to provide an investigational therapy to a patient who is not eligible to receive that therapy in a clinical trial, but who has a serious or life-threatening illness for which other treatments are not available. Compassionate use allows patients to receive promising but not yet fully studied or approved cancer therapies when no other treatment option exists.

In what we doubt is a coincidence, the FDA released – this month – two new guidance documents that bear on the general issue of compassionate use of investigational drugs. The first, entitled “Expanded Access to Investigational Drugs for Treatment Use − Questions and Answers,” can be found here.
