What Is XTANDI?
XTANDI (enzalutamide) is prescribed for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer that no longer responds to surgical treatment or hormone therapy to lower testosterone or has spread to other parts of the body and is responsive to surgery or hormone therapy.
XTANDI comes in tablet or capsule form and is taken by mouth once daily, with or without food.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Prostate cancer is second only to skin cancer in terms of its prevalence in American men. About 1 man in 8 will receive a prostate cancer diagnosis during his lifetime, and about 1 in 41 will die from the disease. Effective treatment is key to beating the odds.
A cancer diagnosis can be very stressful for patients, and their family members, and the financial burden only adds to that stress. The retail cost of XTANDI averages more than $14,000 for 60 80mg tablets or 120 40mg tablets. Simplefill aims to improve the quality of life for those who worry about the cost of maintaining an uninterrupted supply. We do this by raising public awareness about patient assistance programs and making connections between people who need patient assistance and the programs that can provide help to them.
How Does XTANDI Work?
XTANDI is classified as an androgen receptor inhibitor. Testosterone is an androgen. When androgens connect with an androgen receptor within a tumor cell, they can cause tumors to grow in size. By preventing this connection, XTANDI can slow or halt the growth of cancer cells. When prostate cancer cells stop growing, they die.
