Acthar, a chemical used to control a certain kind of seizure costs $23,269 per vial. It's used for some forms of Multiple Sclerosis and infantile epilepsy. Answered by Salley Vonniederhaus 1 year ago.

Yes I guess a lot of the anticancer drugs would be expensive per vial.The new monoclonal fully human antibody drugs would be expensive to manufacture. Gold, Sodium Aurothiomaleate injections were always expensive in arthritis treatment. Some of the HIV cocktails would be expensive over the lifetime of the patient. I have a friend I met on the internet from the philippines and she is essentially dying of asthma ( can't move about a lot anymore) at 25 years of age because all she can afford is a ventolin inhaler and she really needs glaxo's Seretide inhaler and things like Singulair and geed antibiotics...all of which are too expensive for most philippinos as Glaxo needs to keep the price in the region suitable for the Japanese market ( i.e. high priced) in order to prevent the japanese parallel importing from the philippines.

what's it called & what's it used to cure? Asked by Etsuko Dicioccio 1 year ago.

For a single dose? Acthar comes to mind. It's adrenocorticotropic hormone, it's used to treat West Syndrome - perhaps the worst of all the infantile epilepsies. It costs about $23,000 dollars per dose. While I'm not certain of the exact dosage or costs, I've heard that recombinant interferon treatments for Hepatitis B can exceed $100,000 a month. Granted, recom interferon is horrifyingly expensive to make, like many recombinant products and biopharmaceuticals. Answered by Rolf Beier 1 year ago.

How can i cure my gout or at least control it?
Asked by Virgen Desrocher 1 year ago.

Treatment The goals of treatment for gout consist of alleviating pain, avoiding severe attacks in the future, and preventing long-term joint damage. In addition to taking pain medications as prescribed by their doctors, people having gout attacks are encouraged to rest and to increase the amount of fluids that they drink. Acute attacks of gout can be treated with nonaspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as naproxen sodium (Aleve), ibuprofen (Advil), or indomethacin (Indocin). In some cases, these drugs can aggravate a peptic ulcer or existing kidney disease and cannot be used. Doctors sometimes also use colchicine (Colbenemid), especially in cases where nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs cannot be used. Colchicine may cause diarrhea, which tends to go away once the patient stops taking it. Corticosteroids such as prednisone (Deltasone) and adrenocorticotropic hormone (Acthar) may be given orally or may be injected directly into the joint for a more concentrated effect. While all of these drugs have the potential to cause side effects, they are used for only about 48 hours and are not likely to cause major problems. However, aspirin and closely related drugs (salicylates) should be avoided because they can ultimately worsen gout. Once an acute attack has been successfully treated, doctors try to prevent future attacks of gout and long-term joint damage by lowering uric acid levels in the blood. There are two types of drugs for correcting hyperuricemia. Uricosuric drugs, such as probenecid (Benemid) and sulfinpyrazone (Anturane), lower the levels of urate in the blood by increasing its removal from the body (excretion) through the urine. These drugs may promote the formation of kidney stones, and they may not work for all patients, especially those with kidney disease. Allopurinol (Zyloprim), a type of drug called a xanthine-oxidase inhibitor, blocks the production of urate in the body, and can dissolve kidney stones as well as treating gout. The potential side effects of allopurinol include rash, a skin condition known as dermatitis, and liver dysfunction. Once people begin taking these medications, they must take them for life or the gout will continue to return. Alternative treatment The alternative medicine approach to gout focuses on correcting hyperuricemia by losing weight and limiting the intake of alcohol and purine-rich foods. In addition, consuming garlic (Allium sativum) has been recommended to help prevent gout. Increasing fluid intake, especially by drinking water, is also recommended. During an acute attack, contrast hydrotherapy (alternating three-minute hot compresses with 30-second cold compresses) can help dissolve the crystals and resolve the pain faster. Answered by Soo Delehanty 1 year ago.

Gout is a condition where uric acid crystals build up in the body. This can happen in the area of the big toe and cause a lot of pain. Our foods contain purines; some foods are higher in this than others. The doctor may place you on a lower purine diet (of which they will usually provide you a list of foods to avoid. There is also medications that can lower the uric acid in the blood Here an alternative way to cure gout? Answered by Elana Lenk 1 year ago.

Recommendations and treatments for Gout 1.Bromelain :500 mg every 3 hours during an attack; reduce to twice a day to help prevent further attacks. 2.Quercetin : 500 mg twice a day between meals.Take with bromelain to help prevent gout attacks. Cherry Fruit Extract: 1,000 mg 3 times a day following an acute attack.Reduce dosage to 1,000 mg a day for maintenance. Vitamin C: 500 mg a day. Add 500 mg every 5 days until you reach 1,000 mg twice a day. Reduce dose if diarrhea develops. Nettle: 250 mg standardized extract 3 times a day. Also effective as a nettle tea compress applied to sore joints. (Use 1 or 2 tsp. dried herb per cup of hot water.) Flaxseed Oil : 1 tbsp. (14 grams) a day. Can be mixed with food; take in the morning. I-WATER INTAKE If you are under an attack and do not consume enough non-chlorinated water, it can and most likely will get worse. The crystals are being dissolved into a soluble form and the levels of uric acid in the blood will rise significantly. If you do not keep the blood hydrated, the uric acid can and most likely will re-crystallize. You should consume at least 30% more than you expel. If you are under an attack , it is imperative that you drink about 96oz of non-chlorinated distilled or bottled water to relieve the attack as quickly as possible. After this attack, you should consume at least 64oz a day with the capsules to remain gout free. II- Maintain a diet of low purines at all times. Eat very little meat red or pork, no organ meats at all (Hot dogs, bologna, etc.) Consume no alcohol. Do not eat any fried foods, roasted nuts, or any foods containing of cooked with oil that has been subjected to heat. Avoid rich foods such as cakes and pies. Limit white flour and sugar products in your diet. Avoid the amino acid glycine. Limit your intake of caffeine, cauliflower, dried beans, lentils, fish, eggs, oatmeal, peas, poultry, spinach, and yeast products. If you are overweight, lose excessive pounds but avoid crash diets because they will bring on an attack as well. CAUTION: Do not use Acetaminophen in any form during a gout attack. It can also be found in liquid cold formula medications and capsules. Acetaminophen may cause the gout attack to more severe and prevent a gout attack from subsiding. Answered by Cathi Moore 1 year ago.

Gout is a form of Arthritis and it is cuase by uric acid build up in the system The first step wherever possible, must be to correct those factors mentioned above which give rise to high uric acid levels. Purines are substances found in food, which, when broken down produce a lot of uric acid. Therefore the following foods which are high in Purines should be restricted or avoided: # Offal foods such as liver, kidneys, tripe, sweetbreads and tongue. # Excessive amounts of red meat. # Shellfish, fish roe and scallops. # Peas. lentils and beans. # Alcohol intake should be reduced. Two glasses of beer a day or less is sensible. On special occasions you can drink more. # Weight loss may be very important. # Medication for high blood pressure may need to be altered Here is a good link Answered by Alfreda Kenefick 1 year ago.
