How It Works
Cyclophosphamide is an alkylating agent and is related to mustard gas. It causes cell death by interfering with the way genetic material (DNA) in the cell multiplies.
Cyclophosphamide is available as an intravenous (IV) medicine and as tablets for oral use in 25 mg and 50 mg. The type and extent of a disease and your body size determine the exact dose and schedule of administering this medicine.
