Cyclophosphamide (Non-Cancer) - What is it for

Cyclophosphamide belongs to a class of medicines called immunosuppressant. It suppresses the body's immune response by blocking the production of DNA in the body. It helps to reduce inflammation, which in turn, reduces symptoms and complications in the lung, skin, joints and other organs.

Cyclophosphamide is used to treat autoimmune diseases (disease where the body's natural defence system attacks own body cells such as:

Systemic lupus erythematosus

Systemic sclerosis

Systemic vasculitis

Others, please specify ______________________________________

Disclaimer: Cyclophosphamide is also used in non-autoimmune diseases. It is not within the scope of this material to cover information for such conditions.
