Expanded Access Policy
At Harpoon Therapeutics, we are committed to the development and careful evaluation of novel therapeutics with the goal to help patients with cancer. Currently our therapies are investigational, which means that they have not been approved as safe and effective by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or other Health Authorities. We believe it is important to provide our investigational therapies to patients who are participating in the setting of one of our clinical trials. Use outside of a clinical trial can potentially compromise the broader development program that is being conducted to carefully evaluate the safety and efficacy of the therapy in support of product registration. However, we recognize that access through a clinical trial is not always possible for every cancer patient and there may be circumstances, particularly later in development, where investigational therapies may be made available to patients via an Expanded Access request made by their physician. At this time, all of our investigational therapies are in early phase development, and we are not yet providing Expanded Access. As we advance our clinical studies, we will evaluate how best to provide Expanded Access.
We encourage any person with cancer interested in gaining access to our investigational therapies to consult their physician regarding the possibility of participating in one of our clinical trials.
A listing of Harpoon’s clinical trials can be found on our website Pipeline page and on https://clinicaltrials.gov.
Physicians seeking access outside of a current clinical trial may submit a request providing the information listed above to email@example.com. Receipt of a request will be confirmed electronically within 48 hours. Following receipt of the request, Harpoon may require additional information as needed to complete our assessment. Once all of the necessary information is provided to Harpoon for review by our medical experts, a decision for expanded access will be communicated to the Physician within 10-15 business days.
To be eligible via an Expanded Access mechanism, a physician must certify that the patient for whom the request is being submitted meets the following criteria*:
- The patient is suffering from a serious or life‑threatening malignancy and has received all available standard treatments without success
- The patient is not eligible to participate in any ongoing clinical study of a suitable investigational therapy
- The investigational therapy requested is part of an active ongoing clinical development program at Harpoon as described on our website
- Provision of the investigational therapy will not interfere with the ongoing Harpoon development program, and the potential benefits to the patient outweigh the potential risks
* Note that meeting these criteria does not guarantee access to any investigational product.
