Product Specification

Gemcitabine:-

Gemcitabine is an anti-cancer ("antineoplastic" or "cytotoxic") chemotherapy drug.  Gemcitabine is classified as an antimetabolite.  (For more detail, see "How Gemcitabine Works" below).

What Gemcitabine Is Used For:

Pancreas cancer
Non-small cell lung cancer
Bladder cancer
Soft-tissue sarcoma
Metastatic breast cancer

Note:  If a drug has been approved for one use, physicians sometimes elect to use this same drug for other problems if they believe it might be helpful.

How Gemcitabine Is Given:

Gemcitabine is given by infusion through a vein (intravenously, by IV).
There is no pill form of Gemcitabine.
The amount of Gemcitabine you will receive depends on many factors, including your height and weight, your general health or other health problems, and the type of cancer you have.  Your doctor will determine your exact dosage and schedule.
