How to use Cyramza 500 mg Injection

Your doctor or nurse will give you this medicine. Kindly do not self administer. Cyramza is given by intravenous infusion (through a needle placed in a vein in the arm, hand, or through a central line). The infusion lasts about 60 minutes. You will receive an infusion once every 2 weeks.

How Cyramza 500 mg Injection works

Cyramza is a monoclonal antibody that works by targeting and binding with the vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 (VEGFR-2) and blocks the activation of VEGF. When VEGF is overexpressed, it can contribute to disease. Solid cancers cannot grow beyond a limited size without an adequate blood supply; cancers that can express VEGF are able to grow and metastasize. Drugs such as Cyramzacan inhibit VEGF and control or slow down tumor growth by decreasing the blood supply to the tumor.
