Full Prescribing Info
Indications/Uses
Hemator is used to treat adults and children/adolescents who have chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia with Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph-positive ALL).
CML and ALL are types of leukaemia in which an abnormal chromosome produces an enzyme that leads to uncontrolled growth of white blood cells.
Hemator kills the abnormal cells while leaving normal cells alone.
Hemator is also used to treat adults for: Myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative diseases (MDS/MPD). These are a group of blood diseases in which some blood cells start growing out of control.
Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) and or chronic eosinophilic leukaemia (CEL). These are blood diseases in which some blood cells, named "eosinophils", start growing out of control.
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP). DFSP is a cancer of the tissue beneath the skin in which some cells start growing out of control.
Hemator works by slowing the growth of abnormal cells. Hemator kills the abnormal cells while leaving normal cells alone.
Not to be used for treatment of GIST (gastro-intestinal stromal tumours).
