What Is Signifor LAR?
Signifor Lar (pasireotide) is prescribed for patients with Cushing’s disease, acromegaly, and other disorders associated with pituitary tumors who are ineligible for surgery or for whom surgery was unsuccessful. It is administered by subcutaneous self-injection, usually once or twice daily, depending on the condition it was prescribed to treat. The acronym LAR stands for “long-acting release.”
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Pituitary tumors cause a variety of symptoms associated with an excess of the hormones produced by the pituitary gland. Those symptoms include disfiguring changes in the size of the extremities and facial structure as well as damage to internal organs, resulting in high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and other life-threatening conditions. The gravity of the conditions resulting from problems with the pituitary gland makes it essential that patients can maintain an uninterrupted supply of often costly medications such as Signifor LAR.
Simplefill is committed to making sure every patient who needs an essential medication is able to afford it without sacrificing other necessities. We do that by raising awareness of the fact that prescription assistance is available and serving as a bridge between those who need it and the programs that can provide it.
How Does Signifor LAR Work?
Signifor LAR is a somatostatin analog that regulates hormone levels. It activates certain somatostatin receptors, which inhibits the ability of pituitary tumors to secrete adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) – a pituitary hormone that stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, the stress hormone. Reducing cortisol levels alleviates the symptoms of Cushing’s disease. It also inhibits the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH) which is key to treating acromegaly.
