Requirements:
This is an “offline” application that is downloaded to your device. An internet connection is not required to use the application, but is needed for downloading updates.



Why this application may be useful:
Patients with cancer often take medication in addition to cancer therapy either to aid side effects and symptoms, or to treat co-existing conditions. Many of the drug combinations have the potential to interact and this can affect either the patient's safety or the effectiveness of treatment. For this reason some drug combinations should not be given at all, while other drugs may be used together with caution, possibly requiring adjustments to dosage or time of administration. This application is a guide to interactions that may occur between different anti-cancer drugs and other medications that the cancer patient may be prescribed. The application is regularly updated as new data emerge. Full details about the interactions can be found at www.cancer-druginteractions.org
