Lake Mary, Florida (PRWEB) April 20, 2015
Axium Healthcare Pharmacy announced today that it is dispensing Pfizer’s long awaited breast cancer drug IBRANCE® (palbociclib).
The approval, which came nearly two months ahead of schedule through the FDA’s Breakthrough Therapy Designation and Priority Review Program, has brought hope to thousands in the breast cancer community. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2015 there will be 234,190 new breast cancer cases and approximately 40,000 deaths.
IBRANCE® is a prescription medicine that is used along with the medicine letrozole for the treatment of postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative advanced breast cancer as the first hormone-based therapy for their metastatic disease.
IBRANCE® is an endocrine-based therapy that is delivered in capsule form. In combination with letrozole, IBRANCE® has been shown to almost double the time between tumor progression, delaying the need for later-line therapies including other hormonal agents and chemotherapies.
Axium is an authorized Limited Distribution Pharmacy for IBRANCE®. Full prescribing information for IBRANCE® is available at http://www.ibrance.com.
