Bionical Emas is a specialist CRO combining Clinical Development, Early Access Programs and Clinical Trial Supply.
Its Early Access Programs provide companies a route to allow access to pre-approved medicines to help patients with unmet medical needs.
Access is provided in response to physician requests, where the physician determines JZP-458 is the most appropriate treatment option for their patient and the patient is not eligible for clinical trials for the condition.
JZP-458 is a recombinant Erwinia asparaginase that uses a novel Pseudomonas fluorescens expression platform. It is being developed for use as a component of a multi-agent chemotherapeutic regimen in the treatment of paediatric and adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) or lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) who are hypersensitive to E. coli-derived asparaginase products. JZP-458 was granted Fast Track designation by the FDA in October 2019 for the treatment of this patient population.
Patients, and families/carers of those, with an ALL or LBL diagnosis wanting to know more about JZP-458 should contact their treating physician to discuss the Managed Access Program.
