What Pemaxa is and what it is used for?
Pemaxa is a medicine used in the treatment of cancer.
Pemaxa is given in combination with cisplatin, another anti-cancer medicine, as treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma, a form of cancer that affects the lining of the lung, to patients who have not received prior chemotherapy.
Pemaxa is also given in combination with cisplatin for the initial treatment of patients with advanced stage of lung cancer.
Pemaxa can be prescribed to you if you have lung cancer at an advanced stage, if your disease has responded to treatment or it remains largely unchanged after initial chemotherapy.
Pemaxa is also a treatment for patients with advanced stage of lung cancer whose disease has progressed after initial chemotherapy has been used.
