Investigator Sponsored Studies

Investigator Sponsored Studies

Investigator sponsored studies play an important role in answering meaningful medical and scientific questions regarding medicines and related diseases. Sobi North America embraces new and innovative disease-related research that will assist in advancing science and improving patient care. One avenue through which we support enhancing such knowledge is the Investigator Sponsored Study program. Investigator Sponsored Studies are pre-clinical or clinical studies initiated and managed by the investigator or institution, who, as the sponsor, is responsible for the conduct and management of the study as defined by applicable laws and regulations. We meticulously consider all synopses submitted in the context of our medical objectives and based upon scientific merit and availability of resources. If approved by Sobi’s Medical Affairs Committee, support of Investigator Sponsored Studies may include supplying medicines, funding, materials, or a combination of such, as allowed under applicable laws and regulations. Support of a research study in no way implies any obligation toward, or is any way connected to, the recommendation or prescribing of Sobi’s medicines.

Access to investigational medicines through compassionate use or expanded access are not considered Investigator Sponsored Studies.

Prior to Sobi being able to provide any support, the following documents should be in place:

  • Detailed Study Protocol, that Sobi and the sponsor have aligned on
  • Fully executed Investigator Sponsored Study Agreement between the sponsor and Sobi
  • Fully executed Investigator Sponsored Safety Data Exchange Agreement between Sponsor and Sobi along with Ethics Committee/Institutional Review Board approval

Current Primary Areas of Interest for Sobi North America (all proposals will be considered, regardless of whether they align to a primary area of interest)

  • Thrombocytopenia: Diseases associated with low platelet counts, where platelet enhancing interventions may provide clinical value
  • IFN-γ Inflammatory Disorders: Diseases where IFN- γ, or related up/down stream cytokines play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of disease
  • IL-1 Inflammatory Disorders: Diseases where IL-1, or related up/down stream cytokines play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of disease
