Also known as experimental drugs, investigational drugs are new drugs that are in the process of being tested for safety and effectiveness. They either have not yet been approved by FDA, or are approved drugs that have not yet been approved for a new use.

Investigational drugs may sometimes be used outside of clinical trials to treat a patient with a serious or immediately life-threatening disease or condition who has no other comparable or satisfactory treatment options. This use is called expanded access, or "compassionate use."

During this webinar, FDA experts will present information on

  • factors to consider in deciding whether to seek access to an investigational drug
  • ways to access investigational drugs
  • how the agency protects patients using investigational drugs

The presentation will run 30 minutes and will include an opportunity to ask questions.
