Expanded Access Policy

Otonomy is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics for diseases and disorders of the ear. Otonomy conducts clinical trials to assess the safety and efficacy of its investigational drugs. The establishment of the safety and efficacy of these drug candidates helps us obtain approvals from regulatory agencies such as the FDA, which approvals are required before these drug candidates can be made generally available to patients. Otonomy encourages awareness of and participation in its clinical trials and believes that participating in clinical trials is the best way for patients to access investigational drugs prior to regulatory approval.

Currently, Otonomy does not make its unapproved drugs available on an expanded access basis. However, Otonomy encourages interested individuals to contact the company regarding potential participation in its clinical trials. The following is additional information regarding Otonomy’s expanded access policy in accordance with the 21st Century Cures Act:
