Drugs for PKD renal disease in Switzerland
I've been reading about the drug Jinarc, which has been shown to slow down the evolution of polycystic kidney disease. Does anyone know if it has been approved in Switzerland (I know it has been approved in other European countries this year), and if so, if it is being prescribed by nephrologists here, if patients with only basic insurance can benefit for free or otherwise what are the costs? I have a family member who, if they moved here, will only get basic insurance (due to age and this preexisting condition) and I would like to know if this treatment is something they can pursue here.
Does anyone know of other drugs used in this condition? Or resources where the average person can get useful ideas on the topic: doctors that answer questions, online communities etc.
