Discriminatory Insurer Practices Jeopardize Access to Medication California Progress Report

Liz Helms 14 April 2014

California health insurance plans are jeopardizing patient health by moving vital medications to so-called “specialty tiers,” which place the cost of treatment beyond the reach of most patients and which may be illegal under both California and federal discrimination laws.

Rather than paying a fixed copayment, Californians whose medications are placed on specialty tiers are often forced to pay coinsurance – or a percentage of the total cost of the drugs – which can mean hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month in out-of-pocket costs for a single medication.

Experimental Lupus Treatment One-Step Closer to Possible Approval

 

Thursday, May 24, 2012

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted fast-track designation for its experimental lupus treatment, Lupuzor. This status means that the review will be given priority to go faster than usual. FDA often grants this accelerated process to drugs that show promise in treating serious, life-threatening medical conditions for which no other drug either exists or works as well.

The FDA also gave its approval to the company that developed the drug, ImmuPharma to begin a Phase III clinical trial. A Phase III trial is often the last step before the company testing the drug submits an application to the FDA for it to be approved as a new treatment.

LupuzorTM (previously known as IPP-201101) has a novel mechanism of action aimed at adjusting the body's immune system so it does not attack healthy cells without causing adverse side effects. It has the potential to stop the progression of the disease in a substantial proportion of patients.

Check back to lupustrials.org for details when the Phase III trial is about to begin.
