Cure-Finder, an opportunity for patients out-of-treatment
People with a life-threatening or severe illness sometimes are confronted with a situation where approved medicines or other forms of treatment are not available or have shown not to be effective. This doesn’t always mean there are no alternatives left.
Medicine development has taken a leap and regulators in different areas of the world have a different pace or criteria for approving medicines. Therefore doctors aren’t always aware of alternatives. There could be medicines in development, being studied in clinical trials, that could be potential treatment options.
A simple web search isn’t sufficient to get all the options available. Next to that, there is a difference in nomenclature between patients and doctors. For example, where a patient calls something eczema, doctors may talk about atopic dermatitis.
Aescap’s Cure-Finder might be able to help people who thought they had entered a dead-end street.
