Why You Should Care That Clint Eastwood Looks Like a Velociraptor

Let’s be real… it personally offends me that Raptor Pharmaceuticals’ logo isn’t a velociraptor. Like, that is a missed golden opportunity. I’m just saying… there are a lot of drugs out there, all of which want your money. I’m more likely to invest my dolla bills wherever medium-sized, bad-ass dinosaurs are involved.

Anyway, let’s talk about drugs. You may have heard of the drug known as PROCYSBI®, a prescription medicine used to treat a medical condition called nephropathic cystinosis, in adults and children 2 years of age and older.

Well, so far, it’s been FDA-approved in the U.S. and Europe. NOW IT’S CANADA’S TURN! Way to be late to the game, CANADA. Typical.

PROCYSBI is currently under Priority Review by Health Canada, which as you might have guessed, is in Canada. At the moment, there aren’t any “cystine depleting” medications in Canada, but it looks like there’s hope on the horizon for Canadians living with cystinosis!

Can I get a “HELL YEAH!” for Canada? Have any PW’ers with cystinosis tried PROCYSBI? What’s the verdict? Leave a comment below!

Lady Kehveen Abernathy

Lady Kehveen Abernathy, of noble birth (or so she’d like to believe), is what many would call a youthful “old soul.” As a self-proclaimed “caregiver to the world,” impassioned about life, triumph, and all things beauty, Lady Kehveen strives to love others, seek understanding, and most importantly, spread awareness. But don’t let her sweet demeanor deceive you. Dressed to the nines over corset and petticoat, she’s made it her mission to defend the innocent and fight all things evil on this Earth. And being no stranger to chronic disease, she knows exactly where to start.
