Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic and recurring medical conditions, such as cancer. Continue reading to learn about our Udenyca patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Udenyca?
Udenyca (pegfilgrastim) is prescribed to stimulate the production of white blood cells and prevent a potentially life-threatening infection, febrile neutropenia, in patients with certain types of cancer who are undergoing chemotherapy.
Udenyca comes in a prefilled syringe and is administered by subcutaneous injection, typically once per chemotherapy cycle, on the day following chemotherapy treatment.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Quite simply, we provide hope and peace of mind. Infection is a serious threat for cancer patients whose treatments have reduced their white blood cell levels to a point that the body’s immune response to infection is inadequate.
Udenyca is a very effective treatment for a challenged immune system, but at a retail cost of thousands of dollars per dose, it is beyond the reach of many. Even with prescription coverage, the co-pay can be unmanageable. For patients and their family members already coping with the stress of a cancer diagnosis, the added financial stress can be devastating.
We aim to reduce the stress level for patients and their families and improve their quality of life by providing access to the programs and organizations that can help with the cost of Udenyca and other essential medications.
How Does Udenyca Work?
Udenyca contains uses a man-made form of a protein called granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)—a substance naturally produced by the body. The man-made form is referred to as a “biosimilar.”
Udenyca stimulates the bone marrow to produce neutrophils, a type of white blood cell that plays an important role in the immune system’s response to infection.
