Arseni trioxydum review





Arseni Trioxydum is one of the highly debatable medicaments in the medical field considering that it is poisonous to the human body. Arseni Trioxydum was first used as a traditional Chinese medicine called Pi Shuang and is still used today to treat cancer patients and other health conditions.

Arseni Trioxydum, which goes by the name Trisenox, is a medicament used to treat patients with leukemia that are unresponsive to other agents. This medicament was given approval for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for leukemia.

Arseni Trioxydum is commonly administered to patients suffering from acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) who have been unresponsive to treatment from "first-line" agents.

Arseni Trioxydum must be diluted into intravenous solutions. 100 to 250ml of this medicament is injected to Dextrose Injection, 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection, and USP. Keep in mind that a single-dose is stored securely and any leftovers from the ampule must be discarded. Arseni Trioxydum is administered 1 to 2 hours intravenously but may be extended to 4 hours if there is acute vasomotor reaction observed in the patient.

For bone marrow therapy, Arseni Trioxydum is administered at a dose of 0.15 mg per kg weight of the patient daily until bone marrow remission. Total dose given to the patient should not reach 60.

Arseni Trioxydum treatment should begin 3 to 6 weeks after completing the induction therapy. It is administered through IV at 0.15 mg per kg weight of the patient daily for 25 doses in total for 5 weeks, but may vary depending on the patient's condition.

The most common side effects are nausea, emesis, stomach aches, leukocytosis, fatigue, hyperglycemia, edema, cough, rash or pruritus, dyspnea, cephalalgias and dizziness, and some medicament-related toxicity -- though the latter is said to be rare. If you experience any of these conditions, consult your doctor immediately.

There have been no tests conducted in regards to the interaction of Arseni Trioxydum with other medicaments. It is recommended that the patient first consult a doctor and have them do a thorough physical and medical examination to determine the effectiveness and safety of the use of the medicament. Patients who have adverse allergic reaction to arsenic should not undergo treatment using this medicament.

Patients treated with Arseni Trioxydum should be monitored at least twice a week to determine abnormalities before and after the treatment. This should be a priority for clinically unstable patients.

This medicament is in Pregnancy Category D. Any woman who is or may become pregnant should have the advice of a doctor before proceeding with the treatment. Mothers should not breastfeed their babies when under Arseni Trioxydum treatment to avoid complications within the infant's system. People with renal and hepatic impairment should seek or consult their doctor or physician before proceeding with the treatment.
