... Price of vial of Aldesleukin/Proleukin (18 million IU) for the treatment of RCC? One dose high IL-2 consists of 3 vials.
My husband just had a cycle of IL-2 at Johns Hopkins, with 8 doses the first round (not sure how that translates to "vials", it just came to his room ready to administer in a small IV bag. I know it was "high dose" Il-2). The pharmacy portion of his bill for that admission was over $80,000, of which I would guess (from what else he received) about 80-90% was the IL-2. So it's several thousand dollars a dose. Thank heavens for Medicare!
Hope this is helpful, and best of luck.
