If you have a form of cancer called B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, your healthcare provider may prescribe a chemotherapy drug called fludarabine phosphate (Fludara®). The medication is approved for use in adults only, and works by slowing down the growth of cancer cells.
Fludarabine is injected into a vein (intravenously, or by IV) once a day for 5 days in a row, every 28 days. Your dosage will be determined based on your weight and height, how you respond to the drug, and other factors.
