Adside Injection 5 ml
Adside Injection 5 ml belongs to a class of chemotherapy drugs used to treat various cancer conditions, including testicular tumours or cancer of the testicles, lung cancer (small cell lung cancer; SCLC). Besides this, it can also be used in treating Monoblastic leukaemia (AML M5) and acute myelomonoblastic leukaemia (AML M4). Cancer is a genetic change in which our cells divide uncontrollably and spread into surrounding tissues.
Adside Injection 5 ml contains Etoposide, which is a podophyllotoxin derivative. It works by inhibiting an enzyme responsible for cancer cell proliferation and induces cell death (apoptosis). As a result, the growth and spread of cancer cells are stopped or slowed down.
Adside Injection 5 ml will be administered by a qualified healthcare professional. Sometimes, Adside Injection 5 ml may use certain side effects such as myelosuppression (bone marrow activity is decreased), leucopenia (reduction in the number of white cells in the blood), thrombocytopenia (deficiency of platelets), anaemia (deficiency of red cells), anorexia (lack or loss of appetite for food), fatigue (extreme tiredness), drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, alopecia, liver and kidney functional impairment, leukaemia, hypotension, haemorrhage, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, stomatitis (inflammation of the mucous membrane), hepatic dysfunction and increased bilirubin levels etc. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time.

Cancer [testicular cancer, small cell lung cancer, monoblastic leukaemia (AML M5) and acute myelomonoblastic leukaemia (AML M4)]
Adside Injection 5 ml is a chemotherapeutic medication that contains Etoposide. It is primarily used with other medications to treat testicular cancer that has not improved or worsened after treatment with other medications or radiation therapy. Etoposide injection is also used in conjunction with other drugs to treat a certain kind of lung cancer (small cell lung cancer; SCLC). It can also be used to treat monoblastic leukaemia (AML M5) and acute myelomonoblastic leukaemia (AML M4). Adside Injection 5 ml acts by blocking an enzyme that promotes cancer cell proliferation and induces cell death (apoptosis). As a result, the growth and spread of cancer cells are halted or inhibited.
Adside Injection 5 ml is not recommended to use if you are allergic to etoposide, podophyllotoxines or podophyllotoxin-derivatives or any other ingredients of this medicine; If your liver is not working properly; If your bone marrow does not produce enough blood cells; If you are breast-feeding; If you have a weak immune system and you are being vaccinated against yellow fever at the same time. So, inform your doctor about your medical history and ongoing therapies. Etoposide can significantly reduce the number of blood cells in your bone marrow. Before and during your therapy, your doctor will prescribe laboratory testing on a regular basis. A decrease in the number of blood cells in your body might produce symptoms and raise your chance of developing a serious infection or bleeding. If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.

Cancer: Cancer is a genetic change in which our cells divide uncontrollably and spread into surrounding tissues. There are two types of cancer: benign (localized) and metastatic (spread to the whole body). Types of cancer include blood, lung, breast, etc. Cancer growth can be prevented by chemotherapy, radiation, and stem cell therapy.
Small-cell lung cancer: Small-cell lung cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the lung.
Leukaemia: Leukaemia is a type of blood cancer that affects blood cells in your bone marrow, usually white blood cells. Many types exist, such as monoblastic leukaemia (AML M5) and acute myelomonoblastic leukaemia (AML M4).
