The West Coast Symposium on Expanded Access
Building Expanded Access into the Clinical Development Process
**Presented by FDAnews**
May 10, 2018 – San Francisco, CA

The barriers to experimental treatments are breaking down. Are clinical trial operators ready for the opportunity?

Mark the calendar for FDAnews’ first-ever West Coast Symposium on Expanded Access an all-day event to show where future opportunities and pitfalls lie.

An all-star cast of presenters will probe expanded access from every angle including: regulatory, scientific, business, patient safety and legal liability. Attendees will go home with a real-world understanding of the current and future regulatory landscape, ready to take full advantage of new laws, including state right to try laws and the 21st Century Cures Act.

Here’s just a sampling of what will be covered:

  • Government Actions: President Trump showed his support for “right to try” legislation in his State of the Union message. Discover how this may affect Expanded Access.
  • What’s Happening Now: Case studies of work under way in real time at drug, device and diagnostics firms.
  • Real World Evidence/Real World Data: RWE and RWD are transforming data collection at FDA-regulated companies, nowhere more than in Expanded Access data collection and its application to clinical processes.
  • Best Practices: Better management of planning and operational concerns posed by Expanded Access programs, including implementing best practices.
  • Debunking Myths: Pre-approval access is not well understood. Here’s where to get the real story.
  • Getting Started: How to implement well-designed Expanded Access programs; understanding particular label and peripheral indications to identify covariates of treatment response and generate valuable RWE.
  • And much More!
