Earth City, MO – July 12, 2021 – Optime Care, a nationally recognized pharmacy, distribution and patient management organization maximizing therapeutic opportunities for the treatment of orphan and rare disorders, announces the availability of Humatin™ (paromomycin sulfate) exclusively through Humatin Total Care.
This patient-first drug management program optimizes the benefits of Humatin for patients with acute and chronic intestinal amebiasis. This parasitic infection of the intestines is caused by a protozoan E. histolytica that can affect anyone, although it is more common in people who live in or who have traveled to tropical areas with poor sanitary conditions.

“Symptoms of intestinal amebiasis include loose stool, stomach pain and abdominal cramping, which usually develop within 2-4 weeks and are generally mild,” says Donovan Quill, president and CEO, Optime Care. “People become infected by ingesting contaminated food or water, or cysts (eggs) through contact with fecal matter of a person infected with the protozoan. Of those infected, approximately 10-20% become sick.”
To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of Humatin and other antibacterial drugs, the Humatin capsules should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria.
To prescribe Humatin: 1) download, print and complete the Humatin Total Care Enrollment Form, 2) fax the completed form to 833-488-1141 or 3) call Humatin Total Care at 1-844-486-2846. Prescribers can also use an e-prescribing form.
Quill concludes, “As part of our patient-first approach, our dedicated Humatin Total Care coordinator works with insurance companies to verify coverage and reimbursement benefits, provide access to financial assistance and arrange drug delivery for the patient.”
