Use in Cancer

Daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine liposome is approved to treat:

Daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine liposome is a combination form of daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine contained inside liposomes (very tiny particles of fat). This form may work better than other forms of these drugs and have fewer side effects. Also, because its effects last longer in the body, it doesn't need to be given as often. For more information about daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine that may apply to this combination drug, see the Drug Information Summaries for Daunorubicin Hydrochloride and Cytarabine.

Daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine liposome is also being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer.
