Main Indication:

Congestive heart failure - Lanoxin is useful regardless of whether the failure is predominantly of the left or right ventricle, or involves both sides of the heart. It is particularly useful in heart failure resulting from chronic overload (hypertension, valvular lesions, atherosclerotic heart disease) in which the supply of energy is not impaired. Lanoxin does not cause major benefit in situations in which the metabolic energy supply is compromised as in thyrotoxicosis, hypoxia, and severe thiamine deficiency. Atrial fibrillation - Because Lanoxin depresses conduction in the atrioventricular bundle, producing a slower ventricular beat, it is valuable in atrial fibrillation. It will frequently convert atrial flutter into fibrillation and, upon withdrawal of the drug, normal sinus rhythm may be restored. Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia - Lanoxin may relieve or prevent an attack, but its use in paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia is dangerous.

Main Indication:

Acute myeloblastic leukaemia. Less commonly, chronic granulocytic (myelocytic, myeloid, myelogenous) leukaemia. Although superior results are generally obtained with busulphan (Myleran) in the treatment of chronic granulocytic leukaemia. LANVIS may be useful during blast crises or periods of thrombocytopenia induced by busulphan or other therapy. A degree of cross resistance exists between LANVIS (thioguanine) and Puri-Nethol (mercaptopurine) and generally it is not to be expected that patients who no longer respond to mercaptopurine will respond to thioguanine or vice versa. Unlike mercaptopurine the detoxification of LANVIS is not dependent on xanthine oxidase, hence therapy with LANVIS is not affected by the xanthine oxidase inhibitor, allopurinol (Zyloprim). Recent evidence suggests that LANVIS is particularly useful in concurrent or sequelist combination with other antineoplastic drugs, e.g., cytosine arabinoside. Not effective for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or solid tumours. The aim of therapy is to achieve normal appearance of the bone marrow and peripheral blood. It is recognised, however, that in treating acute leukaemia, one may not always be able to achieve complete remissions and must be satisfied with partial improvement.
