Products

ONPATTRO

ONPATTRO (patisiran) is a prescription medicine for treating polyneuropathy in adults caused by hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloidosis (hATTR amyloidosis). The most common side effects of patients taking ONPATTRO are respitory infections (colds, sinus infections, nasal congestion, and infusion-related reactions). ONPATTRO is known to lower vitamin A levels circulating in the blood. It is made to decrease the amount of TTR protein created in the liver. TTR protein levels were shown to decrease by 84% on average in patients taking ONPATTRO for 18 months.

GIVLAARI

GIVLAARI (givosiran) prescription medicine for treating adult acute hepatic porphyria (AHP). The most common side effects of adults taking GIVLAARI include injection site reactions and nausea. GIVLAARI reduces the amount of ALAs1 present in the liver which leads to the lowering of ALA and PBG neurotoxins associated with the AHP symptoms and attacks. A six month study showed that patients treated with GIVLAARI hadreduced days of hemin and a 70% reduction in AHP attacks (average of 1.9 AHP attacks) compared to the placebo group (average of 6.5 AHP attacks) not receiving GIVLAARI.
