Possible to receive T-DM1 outside of clinical trial?


Question from A22: Is it possible to receive T-DM1 (chemical name: ado-trastuzumab emtansine) outside of a clinical trial or on a compassionate use basis?
Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. No. There are several ongoing clinical trials with this exciting new agent, but the drug is not yet approved and there is not a compassionate use program.
