Is your family physician showing signs of being weary of the whole healtb-care industry? Show the doctor this:
The US Food and Drug Administration today approved Peaceaudi (Idongivafumab) injection for intravenous use for the treatment of medical burnout.
“Medical burnout is a serious condition, which affects thousands of doctors across the country. The effects of burnout have untold consequences, and could significantly shorten the careers of physicians if untreated,” said Arnold J. Palmer, MD, assistant to the regional manager for drug development of the FDA.
“This announcement marks the first time a drug has been specifically approved to treat medical burnout. Idongivafumab’s unique ability to target and inhibit C-suite peptides, as well the entire electronic health record (EHR) cascade, represents a quantum leap in burnout science. Clinical test subjects also noted a marked decrease in symptoms of Entitled Patient Pruritis (EPP) during the course of treatment. 87% percent of those treated stated they felt ready to type at a keyboard with their back to the patient, and feelings of the need to apply to law school, write a novel, or sell crafts on Etsy, fell by a whopping 98%. This drug may truly revolutionize health care.”
Although there’s one characteristic it shares with lots of non-revolutionary drugs:
With a typical cost of treatment estimated to cost $212,000, the makers of Idongivafumab are working to ensure that this new treatment will be covered by all major insurance carriers.
Assuming there are any left by the time this becomes a reality. And for what it’s worth, the “-mab” suffix indicates a monoclonal antibody, and drugs of this type ain’t cheap.
