Arranon is injected into a vein through an IV. You will receive this injection in a clinic or hospital setting. Arranon must be given slowly, and the IV infusion can take up to 2 hours to complete. This medication is usually given every day or every other day for 5 days in a row every 3 weeks. Your treatment schedule may be different. Follow your doctor's instructions. Arranon can lower blood cells that help your body fight infections and help your blood to clot. Your blood will need to be tested often. Your nervous system and kidney function may also need to be tested. Your cancer treatments may be delayed based on the results of these tests. Visit your doctor regularly.
