In this article, we will discuss Mesna and Hemorrhagic Cystitis. So, let’s get started.
• Mesna does not prevent hemorrhagic cystitis in all patients nor does it prevent or alleviate any of the other adverse reactions or toxicities associated with ifosfamide. Advise the patient to report to their
healthcare provider if his/her urine has turned a pink or red color.
• Advise the patient to drink 1 to 2 liters of fluid each day during Mesna therapy.
