Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Inrebic. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Inrebic assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Inrebic patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Inrebic medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Inrebic?

Inrebic is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Celgene Corporation, a Bristol-Myers Squibb company.

Inrebicis a kinase inhibitor used for the treatment of adult patients with intermediate-2 or high-risk primary or secondary (post-polycythemia vera or post-essential thrombocythemia) myelofibrosis (MF). Myelofibrosis is a serious and rare bone marrow disorder that disrupts the body’s normal production of blood cells.

See the full prescribing information for a complete boxed warning. Serious and fatal encephalopathy, including Wernicke’s, has occurred in patients treated with Inrebic. Wernicke’s encephalopathy is a neurologic emergency. Assess thiamine levels in all patients prior to starting and periodically during treatment, and as clinically indicated. Do not start treatment in patients with thiamine deficiency, replete thiamine prior to treatment initiation. If encephalopathy is suspected, immediately discontinue treatment and initiate parenteral thiamine. Monitor until symptoms resolve or improve and thiamine levels normalize.

What doses of Inrebic are available?

Inrebic is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 100 mg.

The recommended dosage is 400 mg orally once daily with or without food for patients with a baseline platelet count of greater than or equal to 50 x 109/L. Take with a high-fat meal if Inrebic upsets your stomach. Reduce the dose for patients taking strong CYP3A inhibitors or with severe renal impairment.

Your vitamin B1 (thiamine) levels will be checked before and during treatment with Inrebic. You may need to take a vitamin B1 supplement. Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Inrebic active ingredients

Fedratinib is an oral kinase inhibitor with activity against wild type and mutationally activated Janus Associated Kinase 2 (JAK2) and FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3). Abnormal activation of JAK2 is associated with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), including myelofibrosis and polycythemia vera.

In cell models expressing mutationally active JAK2V617F or FLT3ITD, fedratinib reduced phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT3/5) proteins, inhibited cell growth, and spread, and induced cell death. In mouse models of JAK2V617F-driven myeloproliferative disease, fedratinib blocks phosphorylation of STAT3/5 improves survival, white blood cell counts, hematocrit, splenomegaly, and fibrosis.

Inrebic side effects

The most common side effects of Inrebic in clinical trials include:

  • Diarrhea, nausea, vomiting
  • Elevated creatinine

In rare instances, Inrebic can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Anemia and thrombocytopenia
  • Gastrointestinal toxicity
  • Hepatic toxicity
  • Amylase and lipase elevation

Your healthcare professional will assess the benefits of using Inrebic against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Inrebic to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Inrebic drug interactions

Inrebic can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Strong CYP3A4 Inhibitors
  • Strong and moderate CYP3A4 Inducers
  • Dual CYP3A4 and CYP2C19 Inhibitors
