thanks for the reply.... At my wife's weight/kg , the 20mg/kg formula would put one treatment at 25 vials? This makes each treatment total about $20,000. if my math is correct. and the paperwork lists that the treatment is due every two weeks.
One 50 ml vial is around $750. The manufacturer has assistance if you go to their web site. genzyme.com/Patients/Patient-Support-Services.aspx
