Mantle cell lymphoma.
How Myezom 2mg Injection works:
Myezom 2mg Injection works by exerting a toxic effect on cancer cells. It inhibits the 26S proteasome and blocks a major cell signaling pathway. This inhibition of signaling pathway makes the cancer cells sensitive to chemotherapy. This medicine also enhances the build up of a protein, ‘Bax’, that affects the cell cycle, ultimately minimizing the cancer cell growth and multiplication.
Interaction with other drugs:
Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking or have taken before the treatment.
Store unopened vials in the refrigerator and protect them from light. This injection is for single use only. Discard any unused portion or waste products.
