Introduction to Mitobulin 0.5mg Injection

Mitobulin 0.5mg Injection is a chemotherapy drug that contains the active substance eribulin, which belongs to the class of antineoplastic agents.

Therapeutic Effects of Mitobulin 0.5mg Injection

Mitobulin 0.5mg Injection stops the growth and spread of cancer cells, specifically targeting the growth phase of microtubules, which are structures that help cells divide. It prevents them from growing without interfering with their shrinking phase. Additionally, it causes tubulin, a protein essential for cell division, to clump together in a way that disrupts cell division. This ultimately leads to the blockage of the cell cycle (G2/M phase), disrupting the formation of structures necessary for cell division (mitotic spindles) and triggering cell death through apoptosis.
