Diplomat to dispense Verzenio
FLINT, Mich. — Diplomat Pharmacy has begun filling prescriptions for patients prescribed the recently approved breast cancer treatment Verzenio (abemaciclib). The drug was approved to treat certain cases of advanced or metastatic breast cancer, either alone or in combination with Faslodex.
"This therapy represents yet another step forward in the way the healthcare community approaches treating advanced stages of this disease,” Diplomat president Joel Saban said. “We are proud to support patients dealing with breast cancer by dispensing VERZENIO.”
The American Cancer Society projects that more than 250,000 breast cancer diagnoses will be made in 2017.
