Am I eligible for Alprolix patient assistance?

We review each Alprolix enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Alprolix patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Alprolix patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Alprolix, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is NiceRx an Alprolix coupons provider?

NiceRx is not an Alprolix coupon, Alprolix discount card, or Alprolix copay card provider.

What is Alprolix?

Alprolix is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bioverativ Therapeutics Inc.

Alprolix, Coagulation Factor IX (Recombinant), Fc Fusion Protein (rFIXFc), is a recombinant DNA derived coagulation Factor IX concentrate used in adults and children with hemophilia B for:

  • On-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes
  • Perioperative management of bleeding
  • Routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes

Alprolix is not recommended for induction of immune tolerance in patients with hemophilia B.

What doses of Alprolix are available?

Alprolix is available as a lyophilized powder in single-dose vials containing nominally 250, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000, or 4000 international units (IU).

For intravenous injection use after reconstitution only:

  • On-demand treatment and control of bleeding episodes. On average, one unit per kilogram bodyweight of Alprolix increased the circulating Factor IX level by approximately 1% (IU/dL) in adults and children ≥6 years of age and by 0.6% (IU/dL) in children under 6 years of age
  • Perioperative management – Minor surgery, a single infusion to reach FIX level of 50-80 IU/dL may be sufficient. Repeat at dosing intervals of 24-48 hours until the bleeding rate slows or stops and healing is achieved. Major surgery, initial infusion to reach FIX level of 60-100 IU/dL. Consider repeating the dose after 6-10 hours and then every 24 hours for the first 3 days, then every 48 hours until bleeding stops and healing is achieved
  • Routine prophylaxis – For adults and adolescents ≥12 years of age, start at 50 IU/kg once weekly or 100 IU/kg once every 10 days. For children <12 years of age, start at 60 IU/kg once weekly. Adjust dosing regimen based on individual response. More frequent or higher doses may be needed in pediatrics <12 years of age

Please see full prescribing information as well as additional information. Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
