Important Safety Information

Alpha interferons, including INTRON A , cause or aggravate fatal or life-threatening neuropsychiatric, autoimmune, ischemic, and infectious disorders. Patients should be monitored closely with periodic clinical and laboratory evaluations. Patients with persistently severe or worsening signs or symptoms of these conditions should be withdrawn from therapy. In many but not all cases these disorders resolve after stopping INTRON A therapy.
All patients receiving INTRON A therapy experienced mild-to-moderate side effects. Some patients experienced more severe side effects, including neutropenia, fatigue, myalgia, headache, fever, chills, and increased SGOT. Other frequently occurring side effects were nausea, vomiting, depression, alopecia, diarrhea, and thrombocytopenia. DEPRESSION AND SUICIDAL BEHAVIOR, INCLUDING SUICIDAL IDEATION, SUICIDAL ATTEMPTS, AND COMPLETED SUICIDES, HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN ASSOCIATION WITH TREATMENT WITH ALFA INTERFERONS, INCLUDING INTRON A THERAPY.

    Malignant Melanoma
    Malignant Melanoma Malignant melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer. Unfortunately the incicence of this disease appears to be increasing, such that currently about 1 in 100 persons in the United States can expect to develop this cancer in a lifetime. Without treatment it has the tendency to become widely metastatic and result in the demise of the patient. There are four general clinical types of melanoma: superficial spreading, nodular, acrolentiginous, and lentigo maligna.
    Superficial Spreading Melanoma Generally the most common form accounting for approximately 65% of diagnosed melanoma, is superficial spreading melanoma. The cancer presumably begins at one focus in the skin at the dermo-epidermal junction. It initially grows in a horizontal plane, along, just above and below the dermo-epidermal junction. This is referred to as the "radial" growth phase of melanoma and is clinically macular or only slightly elevated. Superficial Spreading Melanoma - Closeup The diagnosis is usually made on clinical grounds and confirmed by skin biopsy. Clinical features which suggest melanoma inclue unevenness of the contour and color of a pigmented lesion.
