What is Inpefa?  

Inpefa (anifrolumab) is primarily prescribed for the treatment of moderate to severe systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in adults, especially when other treatments have not been effective. SLE is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks one’s own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs.  

Inpefa is administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion, typically by a healthcare professional in a clinical setting such as a hospital or a specialized infusion center. An initial infusion is followed by additional infusions at specific intervals, usually every four weeks, with each infusion taking about 30 minutes to complete. 

What Does Simplefill Provide?  

SLE is a complex and unpredictable disease that can affect multiple organs and systems in the body. It tends to be episodic, with symptoms that vary widely and come and go over time. With symptoms that include fatigue, fever, joint pain, skin rashes, skin sensitivity to sunlight, mouth ulcers, hair loss, and more, SLE can be a difficult disease to live with. Knowing that the persistent inflammation and immune system dysfunction from SLE can lead to serious complications (e.g., kidney damage, pneumonia, seizures, heart attack, stroke, anemia, and pregnancy complications, including pre-eclampsia and miscarriage) can be unnerving. Unfortunately, the high cost of medications that can prevent flare-ups and disabling complications and allow people with SLE to lead active lives can be prohibitive.  

We don’t believe anyone should have to sacrifice other necessities to pay for the medications they need to manage a chronic medical condition that has no known cure. But many people in that situation don’t seem to know about prescription assistance programs. At Simplefill, we have made raising awareness about the existence of prescription assistance programs a priority as we work to close the gap between those who need such help and the sources that can provide it. 

How Does Inpefa Work?  

Anifrolumab, the active ingredient in Inpefa, works by targeting a specific receptor on immune cells. By blocking this receptor, Anifrolumab helps reduce the activity of the immune system, thereby decreasing inflammation and helping to manage the symptoms of lupus. 

In simple terms, Inpefa helps calm down the immune system in lupus patients, preventing it from attacking the body’s own tissues, thus reducing symptoms and preventing flare-ups.
