Am I eligible for the Sylvant patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Sylvant assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Sylvant patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Sylvant patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Sylvant.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Sylvant assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Sylvant patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Sylvant.

What is Sylvant?
Sylvant is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by EUSA Pharma. It is an interleukin-6 (IL-6) antagonist indicated for the treatment of patients with multicentric Castleman’s disease (MCD) who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) negative and human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8) negative.
MCD is a rare blood disorder with high morbidity in which lymphocytes are over-produced, leading to enlarged lymph nodes. MCD can also affect lymphoid tissue of internal organs, causing the liver, spleen, or other organs to enlarge. Infections, multisystem organ failure, and malignancies including malignant lymphoma are common causes of death in patients with MCD.
What doses of Sylvant are available?
Sylvant is available in lyophilized powder form, in the following doses: 100 mg of lyophilized powder in a single-use vial, 400 mg of lyophilized powder in a single-use vial.
Sylvant is for intravenous infusion only. The recommended dose is 11 mg/kg given over 1 hour by intravenous infusion every 3 weeks.
Please see the full prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Sylvant drug interactions
Sylvant can interact with other medications. These include:
- Cytochrome P450s in the liver are downregulated by infection and inflammation stimuli including cytokines such as IL-6. Inhibition of IL-6 signaling in patients treated with Sylvant may restore CYP450 activities to higher levels leading to increased metabolism of drugs that are CYP450 substrates – oral contraceptives, lovastatin, atorvastatin
- Vaccinations – do not administer live vaccines because IL-6 inhibition may interfere with the normal immune response to new antigens
This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Sylvant.
