Dallas, Texas – AIC, a division of AIS Healthcare, now offers GLASSIA and ARALAST NP, manufactured by Takeda, for the treatment of adult patients with clinically evident emphysema due to severe hereditary deficiency of Alpha1-PI (alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency).

The nationally accredited home infusion teams at AIC collaborate closely with physicians to provide specialized infusion services to patients in their home or at an infusion suite setting. The addition of these therapy options expands AIC’s ability to better serve patients with alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency.

“We’re excited and proud to be able to add Takeda’s Alpha₁ therapies to our growing portfolio of infusion therapies,” said Jud Hall, President at AIC. “The addition of GLASSIA and ARALAST NP can help us provide patients with more options to meet individual treatment needs.” 

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010 and 2002, respectively, GLASSIA and ARALAST NP are Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitors (Human) (Alpha1-PI) indicated for chronic augmentation therapy in adults with clinically evident emphysema due to severe hereditary deficiency of Alpha1-PI. ARALAST NP increases antigenic and functional (anti-neutrophil elastase capacity, ANEC) serum levels and antigenic lung epithelial lining fluid levels of Alpha1-PI.

The effect of augmentation therapy with GLASSIA, ARALAST NP, or any Alpha1-PI product on pulmonary exacerbations and on the progression of emphysema in Alpha1-PI deficiency has not been conclusively demonstrated in randomized, controlled clinical trials. Clinical data demonstrating the long-term effects of chronic augmentation and maintenance therapy of individuals with GLASSIA or ARALAST NP are not available. GLASSIA and ARALAST NP are not indicated as therapies for lung disease in patients in whom severe Alpha1-PI deficiency has not been established.

Both GLASSIA and ARALAST NP are now available at all AIC locations (Valdosta, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama; Panama City, Florida; Dallas, Texas). 

Like all AIC patients, those with alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency will receive a high level of care from AIC, including 24/7 access to clinical and support staff. 

Every patient is assigned a dedicated team of professionals, including clinical pharmacists, home infusion nurses, RN clinical review specialists and patient onboarding specialists to provide support throughout the treatment process. 

For providers, AIC is a full-service care delivery partner. We also work directly with patients, insurance companies, and provider offices to secure all needed insurance authorizations and approvals. 

AIC is dually accredited by URAC and the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), further setting it apart from other infusion services providers. 

Physicians interested in AIC care services should contact their AIC representatives to get started or visit us at www.aiscaregroup.com/our-divisions/infusion-care/

Dallas, Texas -AIS Healthcare, a leading provider of targeted drug delivery (TDD) and infusion care solutions, is proud to recognize March as Brain Injury Awareness Month. This month reminds us of the importance of improving the quality of life for people impacted by brain injury through elevating awareness and advocacy and delivering the highest quality healthcare. 

Brain injuries are widespread, and the impact on an individual and their family is not widely understood or appreciated. According to the CDC, more than 5.3 million individuals in the United States live with a brain injury or brain injury-related disability, and an average of 1.5 million traumatic brain injuries (TBI) occur each year. Post-brain injury treatment is a lifelong journey, often requiring specialized healthcare services and chronic pain treatment. AIS Healthcare is dedicated to ensuring patients living with a TBI and managing complex conditions can lead full, meaningful lives in their homes and local communities. 

“The strength and resilience of the brain injury community are tremendous, and I welcome the strides made by the physical and behavioral health industries to elevate research, advocacy, and awareness on behalf of this important group,” said Simon Castellanos, CEO of AIS Healthcare. “This month and every month, we seek to empower individuals living with a brain injury by delivering the best possible in-home healthcare services and pain management solutions. We will always be an ally to this inspiring part of our larger patient community.”  

Brain injuries often happen through absolutely no fault of the injured person. AIS Healthcare wants to remind everyone to take proper precautions to reduce the chance of brain injury by wearing seatbelts, helmets, and never driving impaired. To find more ways to support the brain injury community, contact your local brain injury association by visiting here.
