The growth of monoclonal antibodies over the last decade has been staggering. These therapies continue to gain use and popularity due to their effectiveness in a variety of areas from rheumatology to gastroenterology and more.

This fascinating and expert-led educational program covers the history, development and manufacturing process of monoclonal antibodies as well as various administration strategies that can be implemented during home infusion to ensure patient safety by reducing the likelihood of infusion reactions. This program has something for everyone involved in the dispensing and administration of mAbs in the home.

In a November 15 House Energy and Commerce Committee markup, Representative Debbie Dingell (D-MI) expressed frustration that the Preserving Patient Access to Home Infusion Act (H.R. 4104) was not among the 21 health care bills being considered as part of the session, despite the inclusion of other legislation that would add more drugs to the DMEPOS home infusion benefit.

Sincere thanks to Rep. Debbie Dingell for her staunch support for improving patient access to home infusion and Rep. Diana Harshbarger
(R-TN) as well for seizing the opportunity to show her support of the Preserving Patient Access to Home Infusion Act.
