What is Endari?
Endari is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Emmaus Medical Inc. It is an oral L-glutamine treatment for sickle cell anemia and sickle beta-thalassemia, two types of sickle cell disease (SCD). The disease occurs most often in African-Americans, Latinos, and other minority groups. Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder in which red blood cells are abnormally shaped (in a crescent, or “sickle,” shape). This restricts the flow of blood in blood vessels and limits oxygen being delivered to the body’s tissues, leading to severe pain and oxidation damage.
The efficacy of Endari was demonstrated by a reduction in the number of sickle cell crises. A sickle cell crisis is defined as a visit to an emergency facility for sickle cell disease-related painful crises which were treated with a parenterally administered narcotic or parenterally administered ketorolac. Sickle-cell crisis leads to organ damage, anemia, stroke, pulmonary complications, and acute chest syndrome. ENDARI is an amino acid indicated to reduce the acute complications of sickle cell disease (SCD) in adult and pediatric patients 5 years of age and older.
What doses of Endari are available?
Endari is available in oral powder form, in the following doses: 5 grams of L-glutamine oral powder per paper-foil-plastic laminate packet.
Endari oral powder is mixed with a liquid, such as water, milk, apple juice or mixed with soft food such as applesauce or yogurt. 5 grams to 15 grams is taken orally, twice daily based on body weight.
Please read the prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
