In Head and neck cancer

In Sickle cell anemia
Sickle cell anemia is a disorder of the red blood cells (RBCs) in which they lose their original round shape and flexibility, turn sickle shape and eventually die out. Leukocel 500mg Tablet makes your red blood cells bigger. It helps them stay rounder and more flexible and makes them less likely to turn into a sickle shape.

This helps to treat this disease and also prevents further complications that may be life-threatening.
