This webinar will provide an overview of the federal and state laws that are designed to allow terminally ill patients access to investigational products.
Overview
 
The webinar will review the legal framework of FDA’s expanded access regulations and the recent initiative to pass ‘Right to Try’ laws at the state level, which are designed to allow patients access to investigational treatments without the need for FDA approval. 
The webinar will provide the historical context of challenges to FDA’s authority to regulate access to investigational drugs by seriously ill patients who do not qualify for an ongoing clinical and for whom there is no approved therapy, and the ensuing development of the ‘Right to Try’ initiative.  
An update on the number of states that have passed ‘Right to Try’ laws will be provided and the similarities and differences between the various state laws will be reviewed.  
The webinar will explore legal tension between the FDA regulations and the state ‘Right to Try’ laws, and the latest efforts to pass a National ‘Right to Try’ Law.
Why Should You Attend
 
Personal autonomy is at the heart of the tension between the FDA’s expanded access regulations and the ‘Right to Try’ initiative.  
FDA’s expanded access regulations seek to provide seriously ill patients with access to investigational new drugs in a manner that is designed to ensure the potential benefit to the individual patient justifies the potential risks posed by the use of the investigational drug outside the context of an ongoing clinical trial and which preserves the integrity of the clinical trial system for the development of new drugs.  
But for seriously ill patients, the prospect of trying to comply with government regulations while fighting to save their lives can be viewed as an unreasonable burden established by an over reaching and paternalistic government. Clinicians, hospitals, and institutional review boards (IRBs) need to understand both the federal and state laws and the tension between them, so they are prepared to address requests from seriously ill patients for access to investigational drugs. Members of the pharmaceutical industry need to understand the potential legal, business, and financial risks of providing, or not providing, access to their investigational drugs to an individual patient.
