Medicago’s Pre-Approval Expanded Access Policy

As a pioneer of plant-based transient expression and manufacturing, Medicago has always sought effective ways to help improve human health.  Medicago is committed to advancing therapeutics, including vaccines, against life-threatening diseases worldwide.

Before launching a vaccine, it is essential to test its safety and efficacy during clinical trials.  Currently, Medicago is not providing access to our investigational therapies or vaccines outside of these studies.

Trial recruitment is conducted by a specialized independent third-party clinical trial organization to maintain the integrity of the trial. You can find more information, including clinical trials site contacts at www.ClinicalTrials.gov.

If you have questions regarding Expanded Access, you can contact Medicago here. We endeavor to respond to all inquiries within 5 business days.
