BALDWIN PARK, Calif., January 25, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Access for KRYSTEXXA® (pegloticase) is now available for eligible patients for home infusion at Premier Pharmacy Services. KRYSTEXXA is a PEGylated uric acid-specific enzyme indicated for the treatment of chronic gout in adult patients refractory to conventional therapy.
Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by severe pain, redness, and tenderness in the joints. Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallizes and deposits in the joints.
"Our mantra at Premier is to 'do everything for every patient every day.' We're honored that Horizon has continued to extend their trust in the Premier team and that we will now be able to provide care for patients prescribed KRYSTEXXA in the comfort of their own homes," said Stephen Samuel, CEO, Premier Pharmacy Services. Premier's onsite licensed home health agency integrates and coordinates home-based services with providers to create a seamless experience for KRYSTEXXA patients.
