The active ingredient in BLINCYTO is blinatumomab.
This belongs to a group of medicines called antineoplastic agents which target cancer cells.
This medicine works by enabling your immune system to attack and destroy these abnormal white blood cancer cells.
BLINCYTO is used when acute lymphoblastic leukaemia has come back or has not responded to previous treatment (referred to as relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukaemia).
It is also used in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia who still have a small number of cancer cells remaining after previous treatment (referred to as minimal residual disease).
