McKINNEY, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Soleo Health, an innovative leader in specialty infusion services, announced today the company has been selected by Genentech (member of the Roche Group), a world-leading biotechnology company with multiple products on the market and a strong development pipeline, to dispense two limited distribution drugs, Hemlibra® and Ocrevus®.
Hemlibra® (emicizumab-kxwh), for patients with hemophilia A with factor VIII inhibitors, received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in November 2017. Ocrevus® (ocrelizumab) is used for patients with relapsing or primary progressive forms of multiple sclerosis and was approved by the FDA in March 2017. Soleo Health has extensive clinical experience in treating patients with these conditions. The company’s highly trained clinical team has engaged in comprehensive training and education for the delivery of these two medications.
As a leading specialty infusion services provider with licensure in 50 states, Soleo Health is quickly gaining expanded access to several limited drug distribution networks as it becomes increasingly recognized for its proven clinical track record, positive patient outcomes and expertise in caring for patients in the home or alternate site setting.
