What is Imbruvica?
Imbruvica (ibrutinib) is a medication used for the treatment of certain cancers known as B cell cancers, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Waldenstern’s macroglobulinemia, mantle cell lymphoma, and marginal zone lymphoma.
B cells are white blood cells that manufacture antibodies that help the immune system fight off infections. Lymphomas get their name from the fact that these cancers grow in the lymph nodes and other parts of the body’s lymphatic system.
Imbruvica, which is also prescribed for transplant recipients with chronic graft vs. host disease, is available in both tablet and capsule forms.
What does Simplefill Provide?
A cancer diagnosis typically strikes fear into one’s heart—a fear that is magnified when meeting the high cost of medications like Imbruvica. Simplefill believes that people battling potentially life-threatening diseases have enough to worry about without the added stress of not knowing how they will pay for their next prescription renewal.
That’s why Simplefill bridges the gap between those who need prescription assistance and the programs that can provide it.
How Does Imbruvica Work?
Imbruvica reduces the number of cancerous white blood cells—B lymphocytes—by blocking an enzyme known as Bruton’s tyrosine kinase, or Btk. Btk promotes the survival of these cancer cells and plays an important role in their migration and adherence to the organs where they typically divide and multiply. Blocking Btk curbs the proliferation of B lymphocytes.
