Carboplatin Uses

Can Children Use Carboplatin?

Carboplatin is approved only for use in adults, as it has not been adequately studied in children. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using carboplatin in children. High-dose carboplatin, especially in combination with other chemotherapy drugs, has been reported to cause hearing loss in children.

Off-Label Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than ovarian cancer. Using carboplatin to treat any other type of cancer would be considered an off-label use.
