Fludarabine for Chemotherapy

As a type of chemotherapy drug, fludarabine phosphate (Fludara®) is prescribed to treat B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. It is approved for use when the cancer has not adequately responded to (or has progressed despite) previous treatment. It comes as a daily injection that is given for 5 days in a row, every 28 days.
 
When undergoing chemotherapy therapy with fludarabine, you should understand the potential risks associated with this medicine. For example, this medication may not be safe for use in people with certain allergies or those taking certain medications. Also, people who have kidney disease, an infection, or other medical issues should talk to their healthcare provider about whether fludarabine is an appropriate medicine for their situation.
