Am I eligible for Rubraca patient assistance?

We review each Rubraca 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 Rubraca patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Rubraca patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Rubraca, 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 Rubraca?

Rubraca is a poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor (PARP inhibitor). PARP inhibitors block the PARP enzyme. The PARP enzyme helps cancer cells repair themselves and grow. The mechanism of action of Rubraca is to restrain PARP enzymatic activity and increase the formation of PARP-DNA complexes, which result in DNA damage, apoptosis, and cell death. It decreases tumor growth in cancer patients with or without deficiencies in BRCA.

Rubraca is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Clovis Oncology, inc. for use as monotherapy in patients above 18 years of age for:

Ovarian cancer:

•   For the maintenance treatment of adult patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who are in complete or partial response to platinum-based chemotherapy

•   For cancer treatment of adult patients with a deleterious BRCA mutation (germline and/or somatic)-associated epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who have been treated with two or more chemotherapies

Prostate cancer:

•   For the treatment of adult patients with a deleterious BRCA mutation (germline and/or somatic)-associated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have been treated with androgen receptor-directed therapy and taxane-based chemotherapy

This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on objective response rate and duration of response. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

What doses of Rubraca are available?

Rubraca is available in tablets, in the following doses: 200mg, 250mg, and 300mg.

The recommended dose of Rubraca is 600 mg (two 300mg tablets) taken orally twice daily, with or without food.

Treatment is usually continued until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

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

If you miss a dose of Rubraca, take your next dose at the usual time. Don’t take an extra dose to make up for the missed dose.
