Lucivenet can be taken on its own or in conjunction with other drugs , including Obinutuzumab (Gazyva) or the rituximab (Rituxan) in addition to with azacitidine (Vidaza) and decitabine (Dacogen) and Cytarabine. This drug can be used for treating certain forms of chronic lymphocyticleukemia (a form of cancer that affects white blood cells) as well as various blood cancers (SLL which is a form of cancer that develops primarily in lymph nodes). It does this by preventing an organelle protein that aids in the survival of cancer cells. This leads to the death of cancerous cells. The drug is utilized as an initial treatment in the treatment of AML (acute myeloid leukemia) for patients who are 75 and older and who have medical conditions that prevent their treatment with other treatments for chemotherapy. It is part of the B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) inhibitors class.
A medication called Lucivenet can be used to treat some types of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia which is cancer that damages white blood cells as well as other types of blood cancers. Lucivenet blocks the signal that tells a type of white blood cell to grow and divide instead of killing it. This reduces the production of cancerous white blood cells and improves the quality of life for people with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. The active component of the drug is fludarabine phosphate, which is available in either a tablet or injection form. Fludarabine phosphate inhibits this activity, slowing down cell division while leaving normal cells unaffected so they continue to function normally.
How Lucivenet Works?
Lucivenet is a chemotherapeutic agent that prevents the growth of cancer cells. While it has no discernible impact on healthy cells, it prevents the division of these leukaemia cells. This indicates that the white blood cell count gradually returns to normal. Mantle cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia are also treated with it in conjunction with additional medications.
Lucivenet can be given in conjunction with other drugs to treat mantle cell lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. It works especially well when applied as a supplementary therapy. It has also been found to be effective as a maintenance treatment. It can also be used to treat the condition in people who are not responding to other medications. Lucivenet is administered orally or as a subcutaneous injection and undergoes rapid absorption and direct action on lymphoma cells in the bloodstream, with increased concentrations of luciferin converting to light, which is then utilized by leukocytes to cause death.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pain. By taking the tablets with a little water either before or after meals, this can be prevented. It may also be difficult to swallow the tablets so sometimes people need to use a water-soluble tablet for this purpose. There is no allergy to Lucivenet and it does not influence normal white blood cell count in the body.
Side effects of Lucivenet may include reduced white blood cell counts, low appetite, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Allergic reactions like fever, chills, itching or swelling may also occur. There are some other rare side effects that might include irregular heartbeats, weakness and constipation. If there are any serious side effects, seek medical attention straight once.
The drug comes in tablet form and is taken twice daily at 8 am and 8 pm with a glass of water. It is crucial to drink enough fluids throughout the course of treatment to avoid becoming dehydrated. Typically, the treatment lasts for a number of months.The course can be continued if necessary until the lymph nodes that are affected by cancer recede or the cancer cells become inactive. If you have liver problems, you will need to avoid alcohol because it can lead to liver damage.
Do not stop taking Lucivenet without consulting your doctor as it may increase the risk for infections and side effects. If you have any medical condition like diabetes, high blood pressure or heart problems ask your doctor whether Lucivenet is suitable for you. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take the drug.
