Hi, guys. My nephew has been diagnosed with acute leukemia. I think that he will get mercapturin as treatment. I know this is a chemotherapeutic drug and it has many side effects. I would like to know how long it is used when dealing with this type of disease. Your replies will be more than welcomed.

Hi, there. Acute leukemia is a serious type of cancer. It affects white blood cells. These cells easily spread through organism and damage many organs. Treatment must be aggressive. Mercaptopurine is often used in this purpose. I think it is used for three weeks, but I am not sure. It can be combined with other chemotherapeutic drugs. It can also be combined with radiotherapy. I hope this will help.
