Drug composition for JEB (chemotherapy):
|J||= Carboplatin (JM8)|
|E||= Etoposide Phosphate|
Chemotherapy (JEB) is frequently administered as a cocktail of medicines. Because multiple medicines destroy cancer cells in different ways, combinations typically perform better than single treatments.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized each of the medicines in this combination to treat cancer or cancer-related disorders.
Use in Cancer Treatment
Experts use JEB to treat the following types of malignant extracranial germ cell tumors in children:
- Germ cell cancers in the ovaries.
- Germ cell cancers in the testes.
The doctors may also use this combination in conjunction with other medications or therapies, as well as to treat cancers of other kinds.
For the treatment of extracranial germ cell cancers in children, a chemotherapy regimen containing carboplatin (JM8), etoposide, and bleomycin is utilized.
