Unlicensed Medicines 

Unmet Clinical Need

For a patient with an illness needing a particular treatment there may not be a commercially available product in Australia available to treat their clinical needs. 

Unlicensed Medicines and Managed Access Programs

Not all medicines are approved in every country, and there may be patients needing to access medicines not approved in their countries.

A Unlicensed Medicine (UL) in Australia means it is not currently holding Registration / Marketing Approval (MA) from our regulator the Therapeutics Goods Administration (TGA). The particular Medicine however, may have current Registration / Marketing Approval in another region of the world such as the UK or USA or Europe or another region. 

Managed Access Program (MAP) is a term we use to define a more formalised arrangement with a Sponsor. The particular product supply and distribution would be tailored to the Sponsors requests.  This may suit a pre-approval life-cycle stage for example. 

Why is it not available in my region?

  • Product maybe in clinical development not yet approved (timing)

  • Post clinical trial however not proceeding to approval (not proceeding to commercialisation in the region)

  • It may be approved in another country for example USA or Europe or Japan.

  • There may be a shortage in Australia

The Space Between the Lines..... 

Pro Pharmaceuticals Group Managed Access Program

  • Clinical demand is often there prior to a product obtaining its registration and offical launch to the market. 

  • Clinical demand may also not be met through product shortages.

  • Clinical demand may exist after a product is discontinued in a region. 

It is these areas that Pro PG works with our customers to Solve Unmet Medical Needs.
