What is Rituxan?
Rituxan (rituximab) is prescribed for the treatment of certain adult and childhood cancers of the blood. It specifically treats cancers affecting white blood cells, including some forms of leukemia and lymphoma, such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It is also prescribed for people with rheumatoid arthritis and a number of other autoimmune diseases, such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia and vasculitis.
Rituxan is administered intravenously over a period of several hours by a trained health care professional, typically once a month.
What does Simplefill Provide?
If you’re on Rituxan, you’re dealing with a serious illness and probably a fair amount of stress related to your health. You certainly don’t need the added stress of worrying about how you’ll pay for your next IV dose of this important medication. Even people with private insurance may be finding it difficult to come up with the copay, and the high cost of Rituxan may put it completely out of reach for the uninsured or underinsured.
Simplefill believes that everyone should have access to needed medications without having to sacrifice other necessities. Help is available, but many patients are unaware of that important fact. That’s where we come in. Think of Simplefill as a bridge connecting people who need prescription assistance and the programs and organizations that can provide it.
How Does Rituxan Work?
Rituxan is classified as a monoclonal antibody, which is made by cloning a unique white blood cell. They’re specifically engineered to bind only to certain substances, such as cancer cells. Rituxan is engineered to bind to a protein, CD20, found on the surface of the immune system’s B cells, causing cell death.
Rituxan can’t distinguish between normal and malignant B cells. However, it’s an important weapon in the battle against diseases caused by an overabundance of B cells, or B cells that are overactive or dysfunctional.
