Tabloid Uses

How Does It Work?

Tabloid is similar in structure to purines, natural substances that help make up the structure of DNA. It is not entirely clear how the medicine works to treat leukemia; however, what is known is that Tabloid enters into cells, where it is incorporated into DNA. It prevents the DNA from replicating, which is necessary for cells to divide. This keeps the cancer cells from multiplying and may cause the cells to die. 

Is It Safe for Children to Use Tabloid?

Tabloid is approved for use in children. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of using this medicine in children.
