Carboplatin Injection is a chemotherapy drug used for treatment of many types of cancer. The U.S. Food and Drug administration approved carboplatin for use treating patients with ovarian and non-small cell lung cancer, and oncologists often use carboplatin off-label for other cancers. Testicular, stomach and bladder cancers are among those treated with carboplatin as well as other carcinomas. Carboplatin is one of the most widely used chemotherapy medicines. Often given to a patient as part of a combination regiment of two or more drugs, carboplatin has established itself as an invaluable tool in the toolbox.
Carboplatin is a cancer medication that interferes with the growth of cancer cells and slows their growth and spread in the body. It is used together with other cancer medications to treat ovarian cancer.
