What Is Gammagard?
Gammagard is a medication used in human immunoglobulin therapy for people with various immune deficiencies and autoimmune inflammatory diseases, including those associated with include primary immunodeficiency, immune thrombocytopenic purpura, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, Kawasaki disease, HIV/AIDS, measles, and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Gammagard is administered through intravenous, intramuscular, or subcutaneous injection, which must be repeated in a few weeks when Gammagard’s beneficial effects wane.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill recognizes the enormous financial strain that patients and their families experience due to the high cost of immunoglobulin therapy with medications like Gammagard. Compounded by the inherent stress and uncertainty of immune system diseases, the negative impact of that financial burden on the quality of life is undeniable.
Simplefill aims to remedy that situation by raising awareness of the existence of prescription assistance programs and helping those who need such assistance gain access to it.
How Does Gammagard Work?
Gammagard is a mixture of different antibodies obtained from the blood plasma of healthy donors. There is some debate over Gammagard’s exact mechanism of action, particularly as to how it suppresses harmful inflammation. One theory is that it shortens the half-life of certain auto-reactive antibodies, which suppresses pathogenic immune responses. Another explanation is that donor antibodies bind with abnormal antibodies in the patient’s blood, leading to their removal. Immunoglobulin apparently can bind to various membrane receptors on immune cells (T-cells, B cells, and monocytes) that play a role in inflammation of the central nervous system associated with autoimmune inflammatory diseases.
