Kane Hall Barry is now infusing Ocrevus, the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of primary progressive MS. Ocrevus is also approved for relapsing remitting MS, the more common form of the disease.
Ocrevus is an “anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody.” That is to say Ocrevus targets components of your own immune system which, in MS, can damage your own nerve cells.
Neurologists have hailed Ocrevus as a potential game-changer in the treatment of MS. Our own James Barry, M.D. commented “Not only has Ocrevus been demonstrated effective, but because it has shown fewer side effects than other MS treatments, it can be used earlier in the course of the disease.”
We began infusing Ocrevus in April of this year and have already treated 14 patients. Our experienced infusion staff and dedicated infusion suite provide a convenient, comfortable experience for patients for whom Ocrevus is prescribed.
Kane Hall Barry Infusion patients are treated by our infusion Registered Nurses including a Multiple Sclerosis Certified Nurse (MSCN). In addition, our dedicated infusion coordinators provide assistance in insurance pre-authorization and help locate and secure co-pay assistance options.
