This on-body injector for Neulasta (pegfilgrastim) enables cancer patients to receive chemotherapy treatment at home. The Neulasta Delivery Kit available from Amgen Assist means patients can get relief without having to return to the hospital after a chemo session, improving their conditions the day after treatment starts.
This on-body injector boosts white blood cells precisely 27 hours after chemotherapy treatment starts. This addresses a common side effect of chemo, neurtropenia. Even though this medicine has been available for a long time, it's proven difficult for cancer patients to receive their dosage because the chemo prevents them from returning to the hospital for an injection. The Neulasta Delivery Kit lets sufferers receive chemotherapy treatment at home, automatically activating the medicine the day after.
