What Is Ogivri?
Ogivri (Trastuzumab) is a medication used, typically in combination with other chemotherapy drugs, to treat HER2-positive metastatic breast or stomach cancer. Testing is required to determine whether a patient’s specific type of cancer is likely to respond to Ogivri.
Ogivri is administered intravenously by a medical professional in a health care setting.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Cancer treatments like Ogivri are aimed at slowing or halting tumor growth and the spread of cancer to other parts of the body, with the goal of bringing about remission and increasing survival rates. But they are costly enough to be beyond the reach of many, particularly the uninsured and under-insured. Imagine the emotional pain of knowing there is a treatment that could be a lifesaver but not being able to pay for it. That’s a pain that Simplefill believes nobody should ever experience.
At Simplefill, we have taken on the challenge of raising public awareness of prescription assistance. And on a more concrete level, we make important connections between people in need of prescription assistance and the programs that offer it.
How Does Ogivri Work?
HER2 genes produce HER2 receptors—proteins that control the growth and proliferation of healthy cells. When there are too many HER2 receptors (a condition called receptor overexpression), cells multiply too quickly and tumors may develop and grow. Ogivri is a monoclonal antibody that targets HER2 receptors for attack by the body’s immune system, slowing or halting the growth of tumors.
