Pair information of Jaftinib

Drug Information: Jaftinib is a drug used to treat some types of lung cancer. In cancer, some cells in the body multiply uncontrollably. Chemotherapy drugs prevent the growth of these cells by preventing them from growing. Jaftinib belongs to a group of anti-cancer drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors. These drugs inhibit the messenger molecules (tyrosine kinase) that deliver growth signals to the cell. This prevents the cancer cells from growing and multiplying.

 

Contraindications to the use of the drug Jaftinib

  • Pay attention to the expiration date of the medicine and do not take it if the medicine in your hand has expired.
