About Carzomib 60mg Injection
Carzomib 60mg Injection belongs to the group of proteasome inhibitors (anti-cancer medicines). It is used alone and in combination with other medications to treat people with multiple myeloma (a type of cancer of the bone marrow) who have already been treated with other medicines. Multiple myeloma, also known as myeloma, is a type of bone marrow cancer that affects several areas of the body, such as the spine, skull, pelvis, and ribs.
Carzomib 60mg Injection contains Carfilzomib, which suppresses proteasomes that prevent protein breakdown in MM (multiple myeloma) cells. When proteasome function is stopped within the MM cell, a protein build-up occurs within the MM cell, which destroys the malignant cells.
Carzomib 60mg Injection is administered in a hospital setting by a physician qualified by training and experience to administer cancer chemotherapeutic agents. Sometimes, you may experience common side effects, such as fatigue (feeling overtired), anaemia, nausea, thrombocytopenia (low platelet level), dyspnea (feeling short of breath), diarrhoea, and pyrexia (fever). Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if any of these side effects persist or worsen.
Before taking the Carzomib 60mg Injection, inform your doctor about all your allergic or hypersensitivity reactions to medicines or food. Carzomib 60mg Injection can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. It is critical not to become pregnant while undergoing therapy and for several months afterwards. Before beginning treatment, discuss effective contraception with your healthcare professional. Inform them immediately if you or your partner becomes pregnant while undergoing therapy. Breastfeeding is usually not advised during this treatment since it is unknown whether this medication passes into breast milk. Do not skip any laboratory checks because Thrombocytopenia, Hepatic Toxicity and Hepatic Failure may occur. If it happens, reduce or interrupt dosing as clinically indicated.
