Speakers include P4A's Sophie Schmitz, managing partner and Akshay Kumar, partner. Luke Robinson, General Manager, UK, Ireland and Nordics & head of EU marketing at BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc will provide the biotech industry perspective at the discussion.
In the EU, Early Access Programs enable patients to access therapies pre-commercialisation for diseases with high unmet need. Known as 'Expanded Access Programs' in the US, these initiatives allow for orphan drugs to be made available to patients with rare diseases before they've been formally approved by regulators.
While these programs can offer numerous benefits to patients, physicians and manufacturers, decisions made during their set-up can have downstream implications for access and commercialisation potential after marketing authorization.
Through a mix of case examples and direct experiences, the webinar will highlight insights into decisions made during program design, set-up, and ongoing implementation. Importantly, the speakers will recommend key considerations for manufacturers to aid the design of their Early Access Program Strategy and associated implementation plans for Europe to optimise success with future launches.
Discussing the key reasons for biotechs to attend this webinar, Akshay Kumar said: "It will help companies to make an informed decision of when is it appropriate to pursue an EAP in Europe. Also it will help them identify the key considerations that go in to EAP strategy definition and/or implementation planning with a view to optimize commercial outcomes when the drug receives marketing authorization."
Manufacturers should attend this webinar to:
Make informed strategic choices on EAPs
Avoid expensive mistakes
Optimize uptake post-launch
