Glivec 400 mg price and product information

Glivec 400 mg tablets contain an active substance called imatinib. This medicine works by inhibiting the growth of abnormal cells in certain forms of cancer and disease.

Glivec is a treatment for adults and children for:

- Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). Leukaemia is a cancer of white blood cells. Our white blood cells usually help the body to fight infection. Chronic myeloid leukaemia is a form of leukaemia in which certain abnormal white cells (myeloid cells) start growing out of control.

- Philadelphia chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (Ph-positive ALL). Leukaemia is a cancer of white blood cells. Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia is a form of leukaemia in which certain abnormal white cells (named lymphoblasts) start growing out of control. Glivec inhibits the growth of these cells.

Glivec 400 mg tablets can also be used as a treatment for adults for:

- Myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative diseases (MDS/MPD). These are a group of blood diseases in which some blood cells start growing out of control. Glivec inhibits the growth of these cells in a certain sub-types of these diseases.

- Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) and/or chronic eosinophilic leukaemia (CEL). These are blood diseases in which some blood cells (called eosinophils) start growing out of control. Glivec inhibits the growth of these cells in a certain sub-types of these diseases.

- Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP). DFSP is a cancer of the tissue beneath the skin in which some cells start growing out of control. Glivec inhibits the growth of these cells.

- Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST). GIST is a cancer of the stomach and bowels. It arises from uncontrolled cell growth of the supporting tissues of these organs.

Why is our Glivec medicine price in India so low?

Glivec is the Indian brand name for the USA brand name Gleevec. Like Gleevec, Glivec is also manufactured by Novartis. These means you can be confident that these medications are therapeutically equivalent, even though Glivec is significantly lower than the Gleevec cost.

Glivec Imatinib medication from Novartis India is considerably cheaper than can be bought in western countries such as the USA due to its much lower labor, development, manufacturing and marketing costs. We therefore try and pass on as many of these costs to our customers so that buying Glivec online from India will save you thousands each year.

Gleevec price in USA

The Gleevec price in the USA is completely un-affordable to most people who do not have the luxury of valid medical insurance.

Even though Gleevec is classed as a specialty drug, its pricing is still way too high, especially in the USA where it is the most expensive in the world.

The lowest price from most USA pharmacies for 30 tablets of Gleevec 400 mg by Novartis is around $1,500 which is $50 a tablet, yet our price is just $6.99 for Glivec. Our cheapest generic for Imatinib is just $4.49 a tablet.

That is why many USA customers who desperately need this medication are instead using the Novartis overseas brand version of Gleevec called Glivec. It is manufactured overseas in places such as Turkey, Switzerland and India and works exactly the same.

What is the Glivec 400 mg price in the Philippines?

The Glivec price in the Philippines is normally Php 1,897 ,around $38 to $40 per tablet which is prohibitively expensive for most patients. Our price of $6.99 is an outstanding discount and proves that this medication doesn't have to be expensive.

Generic Imatinib is not currently available in the Philippines so Glivec is the only real option.

We ship to the Philippines in around 7 to 12 days via tracked express priority mail.
