Read the Official PANTHERx Press Release.
PANTHERx Rare announces that it has been selected by Aadi Bioscience as the exclusive U.S. pharmacy distribution partner for new drug FYARRO™ (sirolimus protein-bound particles for injectable suspension) (albumin-bound). FYARRO, an albumin-bound mTOR inhibitor administered as an injectable suspension, is the first FDA-approved therapy for the treatment of advanced malignant perivascular epithelioid cell neoplasm (PEComa), an ultra-rare sarcoma.
Advanced PEComa is a rare, aggressive subset of soft tissue sarcomas for which there are no other approved therapeutic options. PEComas are composed of histologically and immunohistochemically distinctive epithelioid cells and most commonly arise from visceral, retroperitoneal, and abdominopelvic sites.
“It is truly special when we are able to provide a new FDA-approved treatment option to a group of people who previously had none,” said Rob Snyder, President of PANTHERx. “PANTHERx is proud to partner with Aadi Bioscience to distribute FYARRO, provide tailored patient support services, and foster hope in the PEComa community.”
PANTHERx supports rare disease patients across the country, addressing the unique needs of every patient and assisting with their personal journeys. Communications and support services are tailored to the desires of each patient and the requirements of their life-changing medications. PANTHERx, with its culture of sincere care and dedication to innovation, continues to define rare pharmacy.
