Expand Venclexta CMI 19 Nov 2018
 
Venclexta is used, in combination with rituximab or alone, to treat a condition called "Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL)".
CLL is a type of cancer affecting white blood cells called "B lymphocytes" and may also involve the lymph nodes, which are glands throughout the body that contain white blood cells. In CLL, the B cells multiply too quickly and live too long, so that there are too many of them in the blood.
The active substance in this medicine is called venetoclax.
Venclexta works by blocking a protein in the body ("BCL-2") that helps these cancer cells survive. Blocking this protein helps to kill and reduce the number of cancer cells, and may slow the spread of CLL.
Ask your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if you have any questions about why it has been prescribed for you.
Your doctor may have prescribed it for another purpose.
This medicine is available only with a doctor’s prescription.
