Otide 100mcg Injection is used to treat symptoms of metastatic carcinoid tumors like flushing and Diarrhoea. It also suppresses the secretion of thyroid-stimulating hormones. Carcinoid and Vasoactive intestinal peptide tumors are two gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors that cause diarrhea, flushing and wheezing. In patients suffering from advanced cancer, where the tumors cannot be removed surgically, this drug decreases the symptoms and slows down tumor progression. Acromegaly is a condition caused when a tumor in the pituitary gland secretes growth hormone in excess.
Otide 100mcg Injection significantly reduces the symptoms of Acromegaly, which include headache, excessive perspiration, numbness of the hands and feet, tiredness and joint pain.
Uses of Otide 100mcg Injection:
Symptomatic relief for patients diagnosed with Acromegaly
Symptomatic relief for patients diagnosed with Vasoactive intestinal peptide tumors (VIPoma) and Carcinoid tumors
Treatment of Refractive Diarrhoea in AIDS patients
How Otide 100mcg Injection works:
Otide 100mcg Injection inhibits the production of Growth Hormone and, to a lesser extent, of TSH, glucagon, insulin, and gastrin. In endocrine tumor like VIPoma and carcinoid tumors, it inhibits hormone secretion and slows down tumor progression. It inhibits intestinal secretion and produces dose-related effects on bowel motility. It reduces the growth hormone or somatomedin –c levels in patients with Acromegaly.
Interaction with other drugs:
Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking or have taken before the treatment.
Store at 2-8˚C and protect it from light. Keep the solution at room temperature before administration.
