Compassionate Use Navigator — How Kids v Cancer can help
Need assistance? Please contact: Elena Gerasimov, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our goal is to save you time and make it easier to apply for access to investigational drugs. Our services are free. We can:
- Provide live assistance and answer general questions about the compassionate use application process.
- Provide pharmaceutical companies’ contact information.
- Guide you on what to include in your communication with a drug company; assist you in understanding the criteria that the company may consider when reviewing the application; provide a sample letter to a drug company requesting compassionate use access; review the request to the company before it is sent.
- Help find the right person at FDA; assist with completing or reviewing the paperwork needed for FDA authorization. We provide FDA forms and FDA guidances.
- Help locate a commercial IRB if your practice is not associated with an IRB; provide a database of registered IRBs, and a sample informed consent.
- Provide timeline and forms for mandatory safety reporting.
- Need something else? Ask us if we can help.
