Leukemia Home > Clolar
If you have a type of cancer called acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), your healthcare provider may prescribe Clolar. This medication is approved to treat this cancer in children age 1 to 21 years old. It is given as a slow injection into a vein for five days in a row, every two to six weeks. Side effects include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
It also damages the mitochondrial membrane, which is an important part of the cell responsible for providing usable energy. By damaging this vital cell structure, Clolar can cause leukemia cells to die.
