Enterovirus B, Echovirus 7, live has not been designated as an orphan medicine for the treatment of uveal melanoma in the European Union, despite an application from the sponsor.

Absence of orphan designation does not preclude the development of this medicine, including its use in clinical trials. The medicine can be authorised if its quality, safety and efficacy are demonstrated.

During the medicine's development, doctors may be able to enrol patients in clinical trials investigating the medicine. For information on ongoing clinical trials in the EU, see:
