About FLORAC INJECTION 250MG 5ML

FLORAC INJECTION 250MG 5ML belongs to a group of anti-cancer medicines called 'antimetabolite' used to treat breast, skin, colon, rectum and stomach cancer. Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy body tissue. Some of the body's cells begin to divide into all cancer types without stopping and spread into surrounding tissues. Cancer can be localized (benign) or spread to the whole body (metastasized). 

FLORAC INJECTION 250MG 5ML contains 'Fluorouracil' that works by interfering with the growth of genetic material (DNA and RNA) of the cancer cells. This prevents the cancer cells from multiplying and growing and eventually kills them. FLORAC INJECTION 250MG 5ML is used as chemotherapy for colon cancer, oesophageal (food pipe) cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer and cervical cancer.
