Medical Definition of Dox-sl

1. A chemotherapy agent used for Kaposi's sarcoma consisting of a preparation of doxorubicin encapsulated in liposomes which deliver significantly greater quantities of doxorubicin to the KS lesions while reducing the drug's side effects. DOX-SL incorporates so-called stealth liposomes, whose polyethylene glycol (PEG) coating gives them still greater stability in the bloodstream. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, stomatitis, diarrhoea and hair loss. DOX-SL causes a significant amount of neutropenia, which can be managed with G-CSF. (10 Oct 1997)
