About My5-FU™

Saladax's first commercially available test for innovative dose management, My5-FU, measures levels of 5-flourouracil (5-FU), a widely prescribed chemotherapy drug used in conjunction with other drugs in first-line therapy for colorectal cancer and other solid tumors. The assay technology enables oncologists to determine the optimal dose of 5-FU for each individual patient, thereby increasing the effectiveness of the drug and lessening the risk of severe toxicity and other side effects.
