How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.

- I meet certain income eligibility requirements
How do I apply for the Gamifant patient assistance program?
Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Gamifant patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Gamifant, 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.

What is Gamifant?
Gamifant is a medicine used in rare diseases, with FDA approval (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of HLH. It is manufactured by Novimmune and distributed by Sobi Inc.
Gamifant is an interferon-gamma (IFNγ) blocking antibody for the treatment of adult and pediatric (newborn and older) patients with primary hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) with refractory, recurrent or progressive disease or intolerance with conventional HLH therapy.
Primary HLH is a genetic disease characterized by an overactive immune system, in which the body produces too many macrophages and lymphocytes. The macrophages and the lymphocytes should destroy infected and damaged cells of the body, but in HLH the immune system damages the patient’s healthy cells.
What doses of Gamifant are available?
Gamifant is available in injection form, in the following doses: 10 mg/2 mL (5 mg/mL) solution in a single-dose vial, 50 mg/10 mL (5 mg/mL) solution in a single-dose vial.
The recommended starting dosage is 1 mg/kg as an intravenous infusion, over 1 hour, twice per week. Administer dexamethasone at the same time with Gamifant.
Use Gamifant until hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) a procedure where the patient’s bone marrow is replaced by stem cells from a donor to form new bone marrow that produces healthy cells, is performed or unacceptable toxicity.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Gamifant active ingredients
The active ingredient of Gamifant is Emapalumab-lzsg, a monoclonal antibody that binds to and neutralizes interferon-gamma (IFNγ).
The main measure of the effectiveness of Gamifant in clinical studies was the number of patients who had a partial response or complete response or HLH improvement, based on improvement in their symptoms and results of laboratory tests after 4 to 8 weeks of treatment.
