What is Dupixent?
Dupixent (dupilumab) is a monoclonal antibody prescribed for several allergic diseases:
- Eczema. Dupixent is used, often in combination with a topical corticosteroid, to treat moderate-to-severe eczema in adults and children aged six and older that have not responded well to topical medications alone.
- Asthma attacks. Dupixent is also prescribed to prevent severe asthma attacks in people over the age of 12 with moderate-to-severe asthma that is not well-controlled by other asthma medications. It is a maintenance medication and not to be used to treat sudden-onset breathing problems.
- Chronic sinusitis. Dupixent is prescribed for adults with chronic sinusitis that often develops in people with nasal polyps.
Dupixent is self-administered by subcutaneous injection, typically every two to four weeks.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Eczema and sinusitis may not be regarded by most as particularly serious, but they are inflammatory diseases. It can be difficult for those who suffer from them to maintain a normal lifestyle. And asthma, of course, can be life-threatening. Not being able to afford a medication that is essential to managing a chronic medical condition can be very stressful. Here at Simplefill, we view stress as a threat to human health.
Simplefill aims to raise awareness about the availability of prescription assistance. We’ve made it our mission to connect those who need it with the programs and organizations that can provide it.
How Does Dupixent Work?
The diseases that Dupixent is used to treat are caused by an inflammatory immune response triggered by the release of certain cytokines. Cytokines are small proteins that provide signaling pathways to activate immune and inflammatory responses. Dupixent binds to the receptors for specific cytokines, which block their action and disrupts the signals that cause chronic inflammation.
