Stocks in this article: NPSP

NPS Advantageā„¢

To assist patients and healthcare professionals in facilitating care with Gattex, NPS has launched a free support program called NPS Advantageā„¢. This program is designed to help navigate all aspects of care, help with insurance authorizations and appeals, answer questions about Gattex and its use, and locate resources for patients that connect them to care.

A key feature of NPS Advantage is the involvement of experienced care coordinators, who provide comprehensive support with a single point of contact. These NPS professionals will work with Gattex patients to confirm authorizations and benefit approvals for Gattex and help resolve health insurance issues. They will also support healthcare professionals to streamline the reimbursement process for Gattex and help their patients obtain appropriate medical care. For more information, please visit http://www.npsadvantage.com.

About Short Bowel Syndrome

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a highly disabling condition that can impair a patient's quality of life and lead to serious life-threatening complications. SBS typically arises after extensive resection of the bowel due to Crohn's disease, ischemia or other conditions. SBS patients often suffer from malnutrition, severe diarrhea, dehydration, fatigue, osteopenia, and weight loss due to the reduced intestinal capacity to absorb nutrients, water and electrolytes. The usual treatment for SBS is nutritional support, including parenteral nutrition (PN) and/or intravenous (IV) fluids to supplement and stabilize nutritional needs.
