Does anyone know the cost of this drug? How do you get it, from the lab or in the regular pharmacy? The doctor said that my mam will need it but her insurance does not cover it. I would really apreciate any advice.<br><br>Thanks a lot!

I don't know how much it costs. However, she may be eligible for a Velcade clinical trial where she would get it for free. It's an IV administered drug so it would be administered at the cancer clinic.<br>You can go to Their phone number is 1-866-velcade. Email them at Clinical trials number is 1-800-589-9005. Or email clinical trials at<br>Hope this helps and good luck. My live-in brother-in-law has been on it for about 8 weeks. He's tolerating it well other than extreme pain in his feet.
