What is Oxbryta?

Oxbryta is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Global Blood Therapeutics Inc (GBT).

Oxbryta is a hemoglobin S polymerization inhibitor for the treatment of sickle cell disease (SCD)in adults and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older. This is approved under accelerated approval based on the increase in hemoglobin (Hb). Continued approval for this may depend on verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

Sickle cell disease SCD is a genetic condition that affects hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells. If you have SCD, you have an abnormal type of hemoglobin called hemoglobin S. Normally, red blood cells are shaped like a disc, but hemoglobin S causes red blood cells to change into a sickle (crescent) shape. Oxbryta works on this very first stage. It helps to stop sickling and hemolysis (the breakdown of red blood cells). Hemolysis can lead to anemia.

What doses of Oxbryta are available?

Oxbryta is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 500 mg.

The recommended dosage is 500 mg tablet orally once daily with or without food. For severe hepatic impairment, the recommended dosage is 1,000 mg orally once daily. Swallow each tablet whole. Do not break, crush or chew the tablets. Your healthcare provider may also prescribe hydroxyurea during your treatment.

Always speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
