Paraplatin Information:

Paraplatin (Carboplatin) is a cancer medication typically used to treat ovarian cancer, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, brain cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, and neuroblastoma. Paraplatin can also be used to prepare a patient for a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. Paraplatin is a platinum-based alkylating antineoplastic medication. Paraplatin works by activating inside of cells and forming reactive platinum complexes that cause the intra- and inter-strand cross-linkage of DNA molecules within the cell. This modifies the DNA structure and inhibits DNA synthesis. This may affect a cell in all the phases of its cycle, leading to the death or blocking of reproduction of cancerous cells. Paraplatin may be used alone or in combination with other chemotherapy drugs. You should not receive Paraplatin if you have severe bleeding or bone marrow suppression, or issues with your kidneys. Take this medication as directed. Tell your doctor about any other medications you are currently taking in order to reduce the risk of interactions. Talk to your doctor about managing any possible side effects. If you experience any serious side effects, or signs of an allergic reaction, seek immediate medical attention.
