tegafur / gimeracil / oteracil

This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Teysuno is a cancer medicine. It belongs to a group of cancer medicines called fluoropyrimidines and is used to treat advanced gastric (stomach) cancer together with cisplatin (another cancer medicine). It is also used to treat metastatic colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum that has spread elsewhere in the body) in patients who can no longer be treated with other fluoropyrimidines because of unacceptable side effects. For this it may be used alone or with the cancer medicines oxaliplatin or irinotecan, with or without another medicine, bevacizumab.

Teysuno contains the active substances tegafur, gimeracil and oteracil.
