The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has produced a new program to expedite the development of potentially safe and effective life-saving treatments. The program, known as the Coronavirus Treatment Acceleration Program (CTAP), is using every tool at the agency’s disposal to bring new therapies to sick patients as quickly as possible, while at the same time supporting research to further evaluate whether these medical countermeasures are safe and effective for treating patients infected with this novel virus.
“Accelerating the investigation of products that could potentially benefit people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic is one of the FDA’s highest priorities.”
FDA Commissioner Stephen M. Hahn.
FDA RAPID Protocol review
The FDA is triaging requests from developers and scientists seeking to develop new drug and biologic therapies, getting the relevant FDA staff in touch with them and providing rapid, interactive input to get studies underway quickly.
The FDA has reviewed study protocols as fast as within 24 hours and in many cases has reviewed single-patient expanded access requests within three hours.
The FDA is also collaborating with federal partners, developers and researchers to create protocols that can be used across institutions and programs to streamline efforts.
