Gamifant offers flexibility of dosing1

Gamifant can be incrementally titrated upward or downward according the clinician's assessment of patient response.

After the patient’s clinical condition is stabilized, decrease the dose to the previous level to maintain clinical response until HSCT.

Dexamethasone can also be tapered according to the judgment of the treating physician.
