Cytoblastine 10 mg
Cytoblastine is a cancer medication that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. Cytoblastine is used to treat Hodgkin's disease, certain types of lymphoma, testicular cancer, breast cancer, choriocarcinoma (a type of uterine cancer), Kaposi's sarcoma, and Letterer-Siwe disease. Cytoblastine is often used in combination with other cancer medications.
You should not receive Cytoblastine if you have severely low white blood cell counts, or an untreated or uncontrolled bacterial infection.
Tell your caregivers if you feel any burning, pain, or swelling around the IV needle when Cytoblastine is injected.
You should not receive Cytoblastine if you are allergic to it, or if you have: severely low white blood cell counts; or an untreated or uncontrolled bacterial infection.
