For those protocols using agents from a pharmaceutical company that are not FDA-approved for the disease under study, a letter of commitment from the collaborating company stating that drug will be supplied for the proposed trial or a copy of the correspondence with the company suggesting their likely support of the trial IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. Priority will be given to applicants that have a clear letter of support that is uploaded with the application (preferably a letter of commitment, but at minimum, a letter of intent).
