Uses
Belustine 40 (Lomustine) is a chemotherapy drug indicated for the treatment of brain tumours or Hodgkin's disease (lymphoma). It works by targeting the cancer cells. Doctors may recommend the use of this medicine on its own or in combination with radiotherapy or other drugs. Additional indications include malignant melanoma, lung tumours (such as oat-cell carcinoma), myelomatosis and various other types of cancer as deemed necessary by the doctor in charge of treatment.

The main ingredient in these capsules is in a class of medicines referred to as alkylating agents, and the mode of action is thought to be related to its ability to block some of the steps in the synthesis of nucleic acid. It can also affect the DNA of the cancer cells, which prevents them from spreading and growing. Treatment may therefore help to reduce the level of cancer in the body over each course of chemotherapy.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage will need to be carefully calculated by your doctor, who will need to take into consideration various factors, including the type of cancer being treated, your medical history and other details relating to your individual circumstances. In some situations, the patient may need to be given a reduced dosage, depending on what other medicines are being taken as part of the regimen. Patients treating Hodgkin's disease may sometimes be directed to take it as a single dose, given at 6 week intervals. Close supervision from a doctor will be needed, and medical tests may be required before treatment commences, and during treatment, sometimes on a weekly basis.
