What is Prolia?
Prolia (denosumab) is a prescription medication used to treat osteoporosis that develops in some post-menopausal women. Osteoporosis can lead to a high risk of bone fracture. Prolia is also used to treat individuals undergoing treatment for certain cancers that can weaken the bones.
Prolia is a monoclonal antibody. These antibodies target only specific types of cells, limiting damage to healthy cells during treatment. It is usually administered every six months via a subcutaneous injection by the patient’s doctor.
There are certain people who should not take Prolia, or should be monitored more closely than usual when taking it. Prolia should not be taken by individuals who have hypocalcemia (low calcium in the blood), nor should it be taken by pregnant women, as it can harm unborn children. It can also cause complications in patients with kidney disease.
Patients taking Prolia should be conscious of any signs of infection such as inflammation, pain, fever, or chills, and seek medical attention right away.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Signing up with Simplefill is the first step in getting assistance with the cost of Prolia. Eliminating the worry of being able to afford essential medications can go a long way towards promoting effective treatment, as stress negatively impacts many aspects of physical health.
Simplefill’s advocates work with patients confidentially and individually to find the patient assistance programs that can defray much of the cost of Prolia.
How does Prolia Work?
There are two types of cells involved in the process of bone remodeling: osteoclasts and osteoblasts. Osteoclasts remove old bone material, and osteoblasts secrete new bone material.
Prolia inhibits the maturation of osteoclasts. By decreasing the hormonal messages that lead to excessive osteoclast activity, Prolia helps prevent bone loss in patients with osteoporosis and those suffering bone loss as a result of cancer treatment.
