Orsini Specialty Pharmacy Now Dispensing VOWST™ (fecal microbiota spores, live – brpk)
Orsini Specialty Pharmacy, a leader in rare diseases and gene therapies, announced that Aimmune Therapeutics, a Nestle Health Science Company, has selected it as a limited distribution partner for VOWST™ (fecal microbiota spores, live-brpk) to prevent the recurrence of C. difficile Infection (CDI) in individuals 18 years of age and older following antibacterial treatment for recurrent CDI (rCDI). For more information about VOWST, see the Full Prescribing Information.
CDI is a bacterium of the intestine that causes life-threatening diarrhea. Although CDI can affect anyone, people over 65 are most vulnerable to the infection. Recurrent CDI is a serious condition that afflicts a significant number of patients. CDI is considered recurrent when a patient experiences symptom onset and has a positive test in the 2–8-week period following the resolution of symptoms.
"We are honored to partner with Aimmune Therapeutics and add VOWST to our expanding portfolio of novel therapies," said Brandon Tom, Orsini's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Orsini Specialty Pharmacy’s dedicated Care Team will ensure patients receive VOWST as quickly as possible and provide compassion, care, and support to meet their individual needs."
