gyroscope therapeutics policy on Expanded Access to Investigational Therapies
Gyroscope Therapeutics’ mission is to preserve people’s sight and fight the devastating impact of blindness around the world. We embarked on this journey because each year millions of people lose their vision due to diseases that we believe may one day be treatable. Our current focus is to discover and develop pioneering gene therapies for one of the leading causes of vision loss – age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
To realise this mission, it is our duty to conduct the research and clinical trials necessary to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of our investigational medicines. We believe that rigorous clinical trials are the most appropriate way to do this. We are committed to working closely with researchers, doctors, clinical trial site teams, patients and families to enrol, conduct and analyse our studies. If successful, data from these studies may support submissions to regulatory authorities (such as the FDA and EMA) for potential approval – with the ultimate goal of making our medicines available to as many eligible patients in need as safely and quickly as possible.
At this time, we are not making our investigational gene therapy, GT005, available on an expanded access basis anywhere in the world (expanded access is sometimes also referred to as compassionate use or pre-approval access). For now, participation in one of our clinical trials is the only way to receive our investigational gene therapy. This decision was made after careful evaluation of many factors, including: the safety and effectiveness of GT005 is still being evaluated in early stage clinical trials; our manufacturing capacity for GT005; considerations related to one-time gene therapies; and, what we believe is in the best interest of patients.
We understand there are currently no approved treatments for dry AMD, which is why we are working hard to develop our gene therapies as quickly as we can. There are many clinical trials evaluating potential new therapies for this devastating condition. We recommend that you talk to your doctor about what is right for you.
If you are interested in participating in one of Gyroscope’s clinical trials and would like more information, or if you have any questions about this expanded access policy, please talk to your doctor or contact us. We anticipate acknowledging receipt of expanded access questions or requests sent to us within five (5) business days of receipt.

We will continue to evaluate the possibility of expanded access as we advance development of our investigational medicines. As authorised by the 21st Century Cures Act, Gyroscope may revise this posted expanded access policy at any time.
The availability of this policy or any revised version shall not serve as a guarantee of access to GT005 or any other investigational medicines by any individual patient.
