F2G Ltd, a UK based antifungal drug discovery and development company, today announced that its novel systemic antifungal product F901318 has been accepted to participate in the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) Adaptive Pathways pilot programme.

Initiated in March 2014, the Adaptive Pathways pilot program forms part of the EMA’s strategy to provide improved access to new therapies treating serious conditions where there is a high unmet medical need.

Mr Ian Nicholson CEO said “We are delighted to have been accepted into the EMA Adaptive Pathways programme which has the potential to accelerate the approval process for F901318. This will ultimately lead to patients receiving our drug sooner than would normally be the case and will provide treatment options in settings where current choices are inadequate. We would like to thank the EMA and the European HTAs who contributed to the review and collaborative feedback on our proposal at recent EMA/HTA parallel scientific advice.”
