Expanded Access Program

Marinus launched the Expanded Access Program (EAP) for CDKL5 in January 2020.
This program allows qualified patients to receive the investigational drug ganaxolone for CDD.

We are laser focused on treating patients with severe, rare forms of epilepsy, implementing a clinical trial strategy that is guided by our strong scientific rationale, and unlocking the potential of ganaxolone across a range of seizure disorders.

Tonight is the first night of #Hanukkah! Also known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is celebrated with several traditions, the main one being lighting a menorah to commemorate when the Maccabean menorah burned for eight nights with only enough oil for one.

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy #Thanksgiving! We are grateful for our Marinus family, patients, partners and advocacy communities who all play an invaluable role in inspiring us to drive innovation.
