What's in this booklet? 

Hydroxycarbamide (also sometimes called hydroxyurea) is a chemotherapy drug which is used in patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) to reduce the high numbers of certain cell types in the blood. In acute leukaemia it is mainly used to control the numbers of immature cells called ‘blasts’ in the blood.

This patient information booklet is for patients, their family members, friends and carers who would like to know more about this drug. So, we will try and answer some questions like what is hydroxycarbamide, who receives it, how it is administered, what are the side effects and what other possible treatments are out there if hydroxycarbamide does not work.

This hardcopy version of our booklet can be ordered free of charge to UK addresses.
