Right but at what stage do they make that call? Did they think he was going to die?
That could well be so yes, i will search more on it
In the Netherlands these are the conditions
The argumentation must in any case include:
- it concerns compassionate (people that are not likely to be cure)cases where there is no registered alternative medicine
- that the aforementioned criteria are met and there is a need to set up a compassionate use program
- an overview of the available (pre-) clinical data and, if necessary, quality data
- an overview of the ongoing studies and how the company guarantees that the compassionate use program does not influence these studies
- information at which stage the registration process is (there should be a prospect of early registration) and whether the registration file has been submitted to the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP)
- whether the CHMP has issued an advice for a compassionate use program.
Yeah. I have to imagine they were concerned he could die. And I suppose the novel-ness helped justify.
It’s concerning because they reported him as “fine”, but never reported how he declined on day 9 into pneumonia. I also had not heard much about these vomiting and diarrhea symptoms.

It looks to me for now that it’s the fastest way for a company to legitimally test on humans, with the possible outcome that it helps the patient. I haven’t read further about whether the patient was healthy or not
it will be true:face_with_monocle:
Oh I read the case study. He declined day 9 into serious pneumonia after being mostly fine previously.
I read it too. As of day 5 he began to have lower oxigene saturation levels, and the lungscans showed inflammation on left lung lower part
Yup - lots of other anecdata about that being the course of the illness. Lots of people are “fine” for 5-10 days then it gets really bad.
Now that’s a citadel
