Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States. Historically, cancer treatment has been limited to surgical removal, cytotoxic chemotherapy and/or radiation, providing incremental benefit.
Targeted therapies specifically interdict a single cellular pathway which may lead to favorable clinical responses in some patients. Unfortunately, many patients are either not eligible for targeted therapy or relapse after responding to initial treatment.
Immunotherapy comprises several different modalities. Each one activates the immune system by attacking specific genetic changes in individual tumors and redirecting the patient’s immune system to eliminate tumors.
Potential utility against a broad range of tumor types and metastatic disease
Advanced, non-local delivery oncolytic virus clinical program
Ovarian Cancer Program
Systemic Delivery Program
Mechanism of Action
Antitumor activity with demonstrated activity as monotherapy and combination therapy
Genelux Corporation is committed to developing safe and effective next-generation immunotherapies for patients suffering from aggressive and/or difficult-to-treat solid tumor types. Our goal is to ensure access to our investigational therapies at the appropriate time and in a clinically appropriate manner for patients.
Outside of our clinical trials, we may provide physician-requested expanded access to its investigational products under limited situations. This is initiated when the primary purpose is to diagnose, prevent, or treat a serious condition in a patient, which is different from a clinical trial where more comprehensive safety and efficacy data are collected. At Genelux, we recognize and understand the need for an early/expanded access policy for patients who have serious or immediately life-threatening disease and have limited available treatment options.
The request for access to a Genelux investigational drug will be considered only if the patient is an eligible patient, meaning:
In addition, prior to setting up an expanded access program or granting a request from an eligible patient’s physician, Genelux will consider whether:
At this time, based on these factors, Genelux believes that participation in one of our clinical trials is the only appropriate way to access our investigational therapies.
If the investigational drug is approved by a regulatory agency for commercial use, including provisional approval, existing expanded access programs will be phased out or modified accordingly.
Patients interested in seeking an expanded access to a Genelux investigative drug should talk to their physician. All requests must be made by the patient’s treating physician by email at EAP@genelux.com. We will, in general, acknowledge receipt of a request for expanded access within five business days. We may ask for more detailed information to fully evaluate a request.
The request for access to an investigative drug can only be considered if the requesting physician agrees to obtain applicable regulatory and ethics committee approvals. We may deny access if the treating physician cannot guarantee an appropriate storage and handling of the investigative drug, which typically requires a temperature controlled deep freezer and follows Biosafety Level 2 safety procedures and precautions. The treating physician must agree to comply with regulatory obligations, including safety monitoring and reporting.
