What is Opdivo?
Opdivo (nivolumab) is prescribed as a first- or second-line treatment for several different types of metastatic or inoperable cancers, including:
- Lung cancer
- Renal cell carcinoma
- Hodgkin lymphoma
- Squamous cell head and neck cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Liver cancer
Opdivo is administered through infusion. This is a slow injection into a vein by a trained healthcare provider in a procedure that takes half an hour or more. Professional administration is necessary so that the patient can be monitored for signs of adverse reactions that could require medical intervention.
Depending on the type of cancer and the patient’s disease status, an Opdivo prescription calls for an infusion once every two to four weeks.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Cancer patients being treated with Opdivo could be at risk of disease progression if they were unable to pay for and receive their infusions as prescribed. For someone already coping with a grave disease, the prospect of not being able to receive treatment is unthinkable. And for us at Simplefill, it’s unthinkable that some cancer patients are sacrificing other essentials such as food in order to pay for their Opdivo infusions.
We know how to find prescription assistance for people who need it, whether they are uninsured, underinsured, or simply unable to make ends meet in a tough economy. We make connections between people who need help paying for their Opdivo and the programs offering that help.
How does Opdivo Work?
Opdivo works by creating an immune checkpoint blockade. T-cells are the foot soldiers of the immune system cells, protecting the body by killing certain cancer cells.
But that becomes more difficult when cancer cells evolve protective proteins to fend off attacking T-cells. Opdivo blocks those protective proteins, leaving the cancer cells vulnerable to the cancer-killing T-cells.
