What is Stelara?
Stelara (ustekinumab) is a monoclonal antibody used in the treatment of autoimmune disorders such as psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis.
The initial dose of Stelara is administered through IV infusion into a vein in the arm by a medical professional in a health care setting. Subsequent doses are administered by subcutaneous injection every eight weeks, for a total of six injections during the first year. The subcutaneous injections can be administered in a health care setting or, with proper training, at home by the patient or a caregiver.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
The treatment goal for people with autoimmune diseases is to induce remission and maintain it as long as possible. Having an uninterrupted supply of the medications capable of achieving this is crucial, but that can be an expensive proposition. The autoimmune disorders treated with Stelara can be painful and debilitating and are known to be exacerbated by stress.
Simplefill can alleviate the stress that comes from not being able to afford important medications such as Stelara. We aim to raise awareness that prescription assistance is available and connect those who need such assistance with the programs and organizations offering it.
How does Stelara Work?
Autoimmune diseases such as the ones that Stelara is prescribed for are inflammatory disorders. Stelara is a monoclonal antibody made by cloning a unique white blood cell. It works by suppressing certain cytokines, specifically interleukin IL-12 and IL-23, which trigger the body’s inflammatory response.
