Next in our series covering different types of chemotherapy is Eribulin Mesylate.
Eribulin Mesylate, also known by the brand name Halaven, is a chemotherapy drug. It is used to treat advanced breast cancer, usually in people who have already had at least one other course of chemotherapy.
Eribulin works by stopping the cancer cells from separating into 2 new cells and so blocks the growth of the cancer.
Eribulin Mesylate is given intravenously into the vein in hospital as a drip into the hand or arm. The exact dosage and schedule depends on many factors, including height and weight, general health or other health problems, and the type of cancer.
