WHAT IS PEMETREXED ?

Pemetrexed is an anti-cancer ("antineoplastic" or "cytotoxic") chemotherapy drug. Pemetrexed is classified as an "antimetabolite".

USES

Pemetrexed is a cancer medication that interferes with the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body. It is mainly used to treat non-small cell lung cancer after other cancer medications have been tried without successful treatment. Pemnat is also used with another medication to treat mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer associated with exposure to asbestos.
