What is Ibrance?
Ibrance (palbociclib) is a targeted therapy used to treat a specific type of metastatic breast cancer—breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. It has proven effective in stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells.
Ibrance was approved by the FDA in 2015 and given a “breakthrough therapy” designation. It is used in combination with letrozole to treat patients with ER+ (estrogen receptor-positive) breast cancer. Ibrance is taken by mouth once a day, with food, typically in 21-day cycles.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Confronting breast cancer can be very difficult even with the proper treatment, medications, and support. The stress of fighting such a serious condition can be very real and is exacerbated by financial worries stemming from high prescription drug costs. It is important not to let financial challenges stand in the way of receiving needed medications and treatments.
Simplefill connects people who need help paying for prescription medications with the organizations and programs that can provide assistance.
How does Ibrance Work?
Ibrance is prescribed to patients with a type of metastatic breast cancer referred to as HR+/HER2- mBC, which accounts for 60% of all metastatic breast cancers. In this type of cancer, estrogen and hormone receptors cause increased activity of the CDK4 and CDK6 proteins inside the cell nucleus. That increased activity causes a loss of cell cycle control, so that cells grow and divide too quickly.
Ibrance works inside the cell nucleus to inhibit CDK4 and CDK6 and slow or stop that rapid cell division. At the same time, the hormonal therapy prescribed along with Ibrance works outside the cell by blocking or reducing the effects of hormone receptors and hormones like estrogen.
