BIOCHEM PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIES
MITOMYCIN C 10MG POWDER belongs to a group of medicines known as 'anti-cancer' used in cancer therapy. It is most effective in the treatment of advanced metastatic stomach cancer (stomach carcinoma), advanced and/or metastatic breast cancer (breast carcinoma), cancer of the respiratory tract (non-small cell bronchial carcinoma), and advanced cancer of the pancreas (pancreatic carcinoma). Cancer is a condition where cells in a specific body part grow and reproduce uncontrollably. The cancerous cells can attack and destroy surrounding healthy tissue, including organs. Cancer sometimes begins in one body part before spreading to other areas. This process is known as metastasis.
MITOMYCIN C 10MG POWDER contains Mitomycin, an anti-cancer medication that is cytotoxic (causes cell death). It works by inhibiting the genetic material's development (DNA) in a cell (cancer cell), thereby stopping cancer cells from dividing. As a result, cancer cell growth and spread stopped or slowed.

Breast cancer: Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops in breast cells stimulated by a female sex hormone called estrogen. Breast cancer may form in lobules (glands that produce milk), ducts of the breast (the pathway that brings milk from glands to the nipple), fatty tissue, or fibrous connective tissue within the breast. The tumour cells invade other healthy breast cells and travel to lymph nodes, a primary pathway for the cancer cells to move to other body parts. Symptoms of breast cancer include a lump in the breast or tissue thickening, which feels different than the normal surrounding tissues, breast pain, redness, swelling, and nipple discharge other than breast milk.
Stomach Cancer (gastric cancer): It is a type of cancer that develops from the stomach lining. Risk factors may include smoking, a highly processed or salty diet, and severe bacterial infection of H. pylori. Symptoms of stomach cancer include feeling bloated after eating, feeling full after eating small amounts of food, nausea, heartburn, or indigestion.
Pancreatic cancer: The malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the pancreas. Signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer include pain, diarrhoea, jaundice, and weight loss. Cigarette smoking is the major risk factor contributing to this type of cancer.
Lung cancer: It happens when cells in the lung begin to grow in an uncontrolled manner. The most common form of lung cancer is non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It happens when cells that form the lining of the lung start growing uncontrollably. Persons who smoke are at high risk of lung cancer. A common symptom of NSCLC is a cough that does not go easily, followed by shortness of breath. Cancerous lung cells spread off and travel through the bloodstream to distant regions of the body and grow.
