Vintor 10000IU Injection
VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION belongs to the group of hormones used in the treatment of chronic anaemia and anaemic states seen in kidney disease, cancers, patients on chemotherapy, bone marrow disorders and in those due to undergo major bone surgery. Anaemia refers to low blood counts due to a deficiency of blood component haemoglobin, resulting in a reduced oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.
VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION contains Recombinant Human Erythropoietin Alfa that works by stimulating the bone marrow to produce more red blood cells, thereby correcting any low blood counts and anaemia.
In some cases, VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION may cause certain common side effects such as vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, and nasal congestion. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side effects consistently.
Please inform the doctor of your detailed medical history including hypertension, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, epilepsy, cancer, liver disease, thromboembolism, porphyria and/or pure red cell aplasia (where the bone marrow cannot produce enough RBC’s). Consult your doctor before taking VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION during pregnancy and nursing.
Uses of Vintor 10000IU Injection
VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION is a blood hormone. It contains Recombinant Human Erythropoietin Alfa used to treat anaemia caused by chronic diseases and anaemia related to kidney disease, cancers, bone marrow disorders, chemotherapy, children and adults on dialysis, and in those due to undergo major bone surgery. VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION stimulates the bone marrow to produce more red blood cells. In addition, it also corrects any dysregulated erythropoiesis (RBC formation) and remedies the formation of any defunct precursors of RBC’s, paving the way for healthy red blood cell production. Clinically, VINTOR 10000IU INJECTION causes a direct increase in haemoglobin values and reduces the rates and requirement of blood transfusion.
