Helping Patients Live Active and Fulfilling Lives
In 2018, 1.7 million people were diagnosed with cancer in the United States.1 Nearly 40% of people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime.1 Up to 80% of patients treated with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy experience side effects including fatigue, pain, nausea/vomiting, mucositis, and infections.2
The high prevalence of cancer treatment–associated side effects and the burden to patients and their caregivers2 drives our product portfolio, which seeks to help patients manage their symptoms and side effects to improve their quality of life.
Available through retail and specialty pharmacies, and offering extensive patient support for those who are qualified, Fortovia strives to ensure accessibility of treatment.
