L ANTINEOPLASTIC AND IMMUNOMODULATING AGENTS

This group comprises preparations used in the treatment of malignant neoplastic diseases, and immunomodulating agents.

Corticosteroids for systemic use, see H02.


L01 ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS

Combination products are classified in L01XY - Combinations of antineoplastic agents.

Detoxifying agents used in connection with high dose treatment of antineoplastic agents are classified in V03AF (e.g. calcium folinate)

No DDDs have been established because of highly individualised use and wide dosage ranges. The doses used vary substantially because of various types and severity of neoplastic diseases, and also because of the extensive use of combination therapy.

The consumption of the antineoplastic agents is in some countries measured in grams. This is recommended as a method to be used internationally for these particular agents.


L01B ANTIMETABOLITES
L01BC Pyrimidine analogues


Fluorouracil for systemic and local treatment is classified here.
