Treatment with a compassionate drug, also known as “Compassionate Use Drug” is the use of an innovative, currently unapproved drug, with the goal to treat patients with serious illnesses when there is no other therapy available for them
What are Compassionate Treatment Use and to whom do they suit?
Compassionate treatment or compassionate use drug is a medical treatment administered to a patient who suffers a life-threatening disease or a disease-causing severe disability and who cannot be properly be treated with a registered and approved treatments or be in the scope of a clinical study.
Contrary to the common belief, compassionate treatment or drug are designated for cancer patients at any staging of the disease, when all other treatment and therapies have been exhausted and they are in terminal condition.
The use of innovative and breakthrough compassionate drugs may extend life and improve life quality of cancer patients. These are some of the most advanced treatments existing in the world and it is important to know about them in the same way we know about any other treatment.
Compassionate use is usually a drug developed by a pharmaceutical company which agrees to provide it to the patient outside of the study scope, and prior to its final approval by the health authorities worldwide. As long as the treatment or the drug are unapproved by the health authorities worldwide, they may be distributed free of charge.
There is no obligating a pharmaceutical company to agree to any application for compassionate use, however, when they do agree, the patient might gain from the compassion demonstrated by the company towards him or her.
