Lasinone 10mg Capsule is a metabolic disorders drug with an active ingredient called Nitisinone. It belongs to the family class known as enzyme inhibitors. This medicine is used to treat a rare disease called hereditary tyrosinemia type 1 (adults, adolescents, and children of all ages) and alkaptonuria (adults).
