Sipuleucel-T (Provenge)

About This Drug

Sipuleucel-T is used to treat cancer. It is made using your own immune cells. Your immune cells will be collected via leukapheresis, a procedure that circulates your blood through a machine and removes some of your immune cells. Your collected immune cells are then mixed with a protein to activate them and make them ready for your infusion. Sipuleucel-T contains your activated immune cells and is given to you through the vein (IV).
