MabThera®SC is a combination of rituximab and hyaluronidase. Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody that targets to a protein called CD20 on the surface of white blood cells known as B lymphocytes. When rituximab attaches to these cells, the abnormal growth of the B lymphocytes is stopped and triggers cell death. Hyaluronidase is added to increase absorption of rituximab under the skin.
Temsirolimus is a kinase inhibitor which inhibits the mTOR kinase. The mTOR kinase is responsible for cell growth and proliferation. By blocking this kinase, temsirolimus can slow the growth of cancer cells.
Topotecan is a synthetic analogue of camptothecin, a nature product derived from the Camptotheca acuminata, also called the happy tree. Topotecan blocks the action of an enzyme in cells called topoisomerase I, which is necessary for cell replication and tumor growth. Blocking this enzyme leads to breaks in the DNA, which leads to cancer cell death.
Trastuzumab is a monoclonal antibody which targets the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) on cells. HER2 is found in large amounts on the surface of some cancer cells, resulting in tumors growing more quickly. By attaching to the HER2, trastuzumab blocks HER2 from receiving growth signals, preventing further cancer growth and slowing cancer progression.
Herceptin®SC is a combination of trastuzumab and hyaluronidase. Trastuzumab is a monoclonal antibody which targets the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) on cells. HER2 is found in large amounts on the surface of some cancer cells, resulting in tumors growing more quickly.
Pain, discomfort or ulcer usually occurs during the initial stage of wearing removable dentures. Doctors will arrange several examinations and adjustments. Please return to the clinic according to the appointment time. If you still have any discomfort, please make an appointment with your doctor in advance to allow enough time for denture adjustment.
Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is a bleeding disorder. People with the disorder sometimes bruise easily or bleed too much when they get cut. VWD is the most common inherited bleeding disorder, affecting up to 1% of the population.
Falls can result in injuries ranging from skin and flesh injuries to fractures or intracranial bleeding, or even death.
Hyperthyroidism (medically known as Graves' disease) is an endocrine disorder caused by the thyroid gland producing excess hormones.
There may be redness, swelling and pain at the site of inoculation, accompanied by occasional loss of appetite, vomiting, fever and other symptoms. These reactions, usually short-lived, will go away within a few days.
