BENEFITS OF BORTENAT INJECTION

In Multiple myeloma

If you have multiple myeloma, your body is destroying bone faster than it is being replaced. This makes bones weak and painful and more likely to break. Bortenat 3.5mg Injection may be prescribed along with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy. It is an important part of your treatment and increases the survival rate of people with multiple myeloma. This medicine will kill the cancerous cells and prevent their further growth as well as spread to other parts of the body. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get the most benefit. Supplements of calcium and Vitamin D3 are also effective and may be prescribed if you do not have high blood calcium levels.

In Mantle-cell lymphoma

Mantle-cell lymphoma is a cancer of the white blood cells in our body, also called non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. White blood cells are those cells that help us to fight infections. Bortenat 3.5mg Injection helps to restrict cancer growth and also blocks the action of other chemicals that are required for cancer growth and further spread. Avoid being in crowds and wash your hands often to prevent any infections. Have plenty of fluids, unless otherwise advised by the doctor not to.
