When ABEVMY blocks VEGF it disrupts the blood supply to the tumour, stopping or slowing down its growth.
There are many different types of medicines used to treat brain tumours and metastatic cancer of the large bowel, breast, lung, kidney and cervix.
Your doctor may have prescribed
ABEVMY for another purpose.
