French 2024 early access program covers 330+ innovative treatments

French 2024 early access program covers 330+ innovative treatments

France’s Reimbursed Early Access Programs (EAP) allow for reimbursement of new drugs and medicines before traditional reimbursement making it a very attractive option for pharma and biotech companies with medicines in the early stages.

336 products and 218 unique active substances (inns) reimbursed

As of February 2024, there are 336 products covered in the early access scheme list, of which there are 218 unique INNs. The presence of multiple products under the same INN is attributable to variations in formulations or indications. This extensive list reflects the ongoing efforts to make a wide range of innovative treatments available to patients who need them most, and underlines the attractiveness of the French market for pharma and biotech firms.

Reimbursement can reach millions of euros per patient

The most expensive product listed in the early access program in 2024 is Upstaza, a gene therapy medicine for a rare disease that affects the nervous system, leading to symptoms such as developmental delays, weak muscle tone and inability to control the movement of the limbs (AADC deficiency). The price of Upstaza, covered by the statutory health insurance, is €3,500,000. Notably, the top ten most expensive products in the list are all cell and gene therapies, indicating a potential shift towards personalized and precision medicine, promising improved outcomes for patients with complex and/or rare conditions (see in picture below).

Overall, the 2024 list includes innovative treatments, including cell and gene therapies such as PTC Therapeutics’ Upstaza (eladocagen exuparvovec), cancer therapies like AstraZeneca’s Imjudo (tremelimumab), and other innovative treatments like MaaT’s microbiome-based product MaaT013.
