Bladder Cancer Care
As part of their continued bladder cancer care programme, medac Pharma has developed the first closed instillation system supplied as standard with Mitomycin, for the treatment of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC).
Mitomycin medac 40mg is licensed for intravesical use.
Each kit contains:
- A closed instillation system
- Mitomycin medac 40mg vial
- Male and female catheter
- Disposal bag
Mitomycin medac has several key features:
- Rapidly dissolving formulation1
- Formulation with urea to reduce irritation. Unlike sodium and chloride ions, urea can freely pass through cell membranes resulting in very little effect on tonicity of the reconstituted solution2
- Easy to use closed instillation system speeds up the process of Mitomycin instillation therapy and prevents cytotoxic contamination3
Mitomycin is indicated for intravesical administration to prevent relapse in adult patients with superficial urinary bladder carcinoma following transurethral resection.
Available in a 40mg vial complete with instillation set, Mitomycin can be administered as both induction and maintenance therapy.
Adverse events should be reported. Reporting forms and information can be found at yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk
Adverse events should also be reported to medac drug safety at: firstname.lastname@example.org
