WHAT IS BLEOMYCIN ?
Bleomycin is a cancer medication that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. Bleomycin is classified as an antitumor antibiotic. Antitumor antibiotics are made from natural products produced by species of the soil fungus Streptomyces. These drugs act during various phases of the cell cycle, and each drug acts during a specific portion of the cell-cycle
Bleomycin is used to treat squamous cell carcinoma, a skin cancer that can affect the mouth, throat, nose and sinuses, penis, vagina, cervix, and other. Bleomycin is also used to treat Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, testicular cancer, and malignant pleural effusion (a build-up of fluid in the outer tissues of the lungs, caused by certain types of cancer). Bleomycin treats only the symptoms of prostate cancer but does not treat the cancer itself.
