Orsini Specialty Pharmacy, the leading independent specialty pharmacy focused on rare diseases and gene therapies, announced today that it has been selected by Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. as a limited distribution partner for AMONDYS 45 (casimersen). AMONDYS 45 is indicated for the treatment of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) in patients who have genetic mutations on exon 45 of the dystrophin gene. For more information about AMONDYS 45, please see the Full Prescribing Information. Orsini is the only specialty pharmacy with access to all approved DMD therapies.
Primarily affecting males, DMD is a rare and fatal genetic disorder that results in progressive muscle weakness from early childhood and leads to premature death in the mid-twenties due to heart and respiratory failure. It is a progressive muscle disorder caused by the lack of functional dystrophin protein. Dystrophin is critical to the structural stability of skeletal, diaphragm, and heart muscles. Patients with Duchenne can lose the ability to walk as early as age ten, followed by loss of the use of their arms. Duchenne patients subsequently experience life-threatening lung complications, requiring the need for ventilation support, and heart complications in their late teens and twenties. More information regarding Duchenne is available through the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. Additionally, information and resources are available at www.duchenne.com.
“We are pleased to expand our partnership with Sarepta and add AMONDYS 45 to the therapies we provide to patients with DMD,” said Mike Fieri, Orsini Chief Executive Officer. “High touch care coordination and collaboration drive our unique specialty pharmacy care model, and our highly experienced DMD Care Team is focused on getting patients on therapy quickly and providing personalized and compassionate care throughout their journey.”
