What is Calquence?
Calquence contains the prescription medicine acalabrutinib. Acalabrutinib helps to stop the spread of cancer cells in the body by blocking specific enzymes and how they act. Calquence is used for the treatment of:
- Mantle cell lymphoma in adults who have already been treated with another form of therapy. Mantle cell lymphoma occurs when B-cells, also known as B-lymphocytes, become abnormal and build up in lymph nodes
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma – both are cancers that affect B-cells and the normal function of the immune system
Calquence active ingredients
Acalabrutinib blocks the action of an enzyme known as Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK). It does this by attaching itself to the BTK. BTK normally attaches to the surface of the B-cells in the body. Doing this activates the growth, spread, and action of the B-cells in the body. Blocking the action of BTK has the effect of stopping B-cells from carrying out their normal activity.
Calquence is normally taken once every 12 hours until your body no longer responds to the medicine. Your doctor will decide the exact dose that you will take. You should not use this medicine in different doses than what is prescribed. You may need regular blood tests while taking this medicine.
