Pure Infusion Suites Partner, Memory Treatment Centers, is Featured in the Wall Street Journal for being at the Forefront of Alzheimer's Treatment

Memory Treatment Centers, in partnership with Pure Infusion Suites, was one of the first medical facilities in the U.S. to infuse the newest Alzheimer’s treatment, Leqembi, to a qualified patient. 

Pure Infusion Suites partner, Memory Treatment Centers, was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal due their access to the newest Alzheimer’s treatment, Leqembi.  

Neurologist, Jamie Plante, MD, and a current Leqembi patient were interviewed to investigate the availability of new Alzheimer’s treatments. With the recent FDA partial approval of Leqembi (Lecanemab) in February 2023, Memory Treatment Centers has been one of the first in the nation to administer such treatments.

Infusions of Leqembi prescribed by the physicians at Memory Treatment Centers are done in Pure Infusion Suite facilities. We are proud of our partnership with Memory Treatment Centers and look forward to expanding access to Leqembi and other revolutionary Alzheimer’s treatments across the nation upon its expected full FDA approval this summer.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Memory Treatment Centers is treating dozens of patients at two clinics in Florida with Leqembi and preparing for a surge in demand, said medical director W. Jamie Plante. The clinics are working with imaging centers and laboratories to screen patients, and plan to recruit more specialists and other staff, Dr. Plante said.

“Janet Engelbrecht, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s this year at age 58, has received five Leqembi infusions at a Memory Treatment Centers clinic in Bonita Springs. She paid about $1,500 out-of-pocket for each of the first few infusions, she said.

Ms. Engelbrecht, a real-estate agent who has stopped working because of her symptoms, said she couldn’t afford to keep that up. She now pays about $440 a session with financial assistance from Eisai. “I feel better every time I go,” Ms. Engelbrecht said.” Wall Street Journal
