PPA Honoured to Support Kyowa Kirin in the PBS Listing of Crysvita

PPA was honoured to support Kyowa Kirin in the listing of their first PBS entry, Crysvita, for the treatment of X-linked hypophosphataemia (XLH).

Today, Health Minister Mark Butler updated the Parliament during question time on the new and updated medicines the Government will be supporting under the PBS, including Crysvita.

Around 230 patients per year could benefit from this listing. Without subsidy, Australian families might pay more than $360,000 per year of treatment.

Australia will be the first country in the world to offer this life changing treatment for both children and adults.
