When a patient is told they have cancer, their world – and the worlds of their families and loved ones – is turned upside down. In addition to coping with the illness itself, the side-effects of the prescribed treatment can also be harrowing and difficult. Yet, thankfully, there have been tremendous advancements in care in recent years.
Our oncology medicines focus on chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, acute promyelocytic leukaemia and metastatic breast cancer, and pain (including end of life care and cancer pain).
Teva has a wide range of medicines to treat not only cancer, but also the side effects of cancer treatment, like neutropenia (where the number of infection-fighting white blood cells is reduced as a result of chemotherapy), as well as pain which often comes about as a result of the tumour pressing on surrounding tissue, organs or bones, or because of the treatments used to fight the disease.
From providing first-line treatment for indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma to maintenance therapy for lung cancers and leukaemia, our medicines are made to combat cancer and help patients live healthier lives.
