Affordable source of ACTH?

Hi all, I have some friends in Mexico whose baby has West Syndrome. Someone they know brought them some ACTH from Spain and it has worked wonders to stop the frequent and violent seizures. But the medication is running out and they've tasked me with finding an affordable source of this medication. (It's a very expensive treatment and Mexico is a poor country.) Is there anyone out there who has shopped around for ACTH and can point me toward a good vendor? Many thanks in advance.
