Azadine Injection


Overview

Introduction of Azadine Injection

Azadine Injection is used in the treatment of some kinds of blood cancer. It is used for the treatment of adult patients with all subtypes of Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). It may be also used to treat other conditions, as determined by the doctor.

Azadine Injection is sometimes used with certain other medicines as part of combination chemotherapy. It prevents cancer cells from growing, as a result of which they eventually die. This stops the spread of cancer cells in the body. It often causes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. However, it is important that you continue to receive the medicine, even if you begin to feel ill. Do not stop taking this medicine without first checking with your doctor.

This medicine may temporarily reduce the number of blood cells in your blood thereby, increasing the susceptibility to infections. Regular blood tests are required to check your blood cells along with kidney, liver and heart function during treatment with this medicine. It is important to use effective contraception to avoid getting pregnant or fathering a child during treatment. The duration of the treatment with this medicine is decided by your doctor depending upon your disease.
