    OMONTYS A drug that works and works well

    OMONTYS a drug that does help with anemia in kidney dialysis patients. 99% of the cases resulted in positive outcomes. The does come only once a month. The competition’s ESA has to be dosed three times weekly.

    It reduces the need for blood transfusions in patients with Chronic kidney disease (CKD)/loss of renal function

    It is administered through Dialysis facilities nationwide

    The OMONTYS (the medication) promotes/increases the production of red blood cells. It is referred to as a erythropoiesis stimulating agents ESA

    Fundamentally the company has 2 years of cash reserves and an FDA approved drug that has received positive feedback.

    The FDA has done nothing to prevent OMONTYS from being sold. They still have their approval in place. So nothing changes there.

    the Company that Administers support drug Venofer

    first line on their safety disclaimer: Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylactic-type reactions, some of which have been life-threatening and fatal, have been reported in patients receiving Venofer.

    Affymax has insurance in the event of lawsuits. Lawsuits take forever to develop out and the insurance will buffer these lawsuits Plus Takeda is paying for half if everything. So time is on the side of Affymax.

    Pharmacists and Doctors popping up in support of the drug and the posts and comments contains some very good point to the contrary saying it is not OMONTYS.

      1st line of Venofer safety disclaimer:

      IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
      Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylactic-type reactions, some of which have been life-threatening and fatal, have been reported in patients receiving Venofer® (iron sucrose injection, USP). Patients may present with shock, clinically significant hypotension, loss of consciousness, and/or collapse. If hypersensitivity reactions or signs of intolerance occur during administration, stop Venofer® immediately. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity during and after Venofer® administration for at least 30 minutes and until clinically stable following completion of the infusion. Only administer Venofer® when personnel and therapies are immediately available for the treatment of serious hypersensitivity reactions.

      (Maybe they Could Revise the Treatment Method to Exclude Venofer)
