What is it
PROLEUKIN® is used to treat kidney cancer which has spread to other organs (also called metastatic renal cell carcinoma).
PROLEUKIN® is the brand name of aldesleukin. It is a synthetic protein, very similar to a protein produced by the body called interleukin-2 (IL-2). This protein is part of the immune system. IL-2 activates certain white blood cells in the body called lymphocytes, which fight against diseases and infections. IL-2 stimulates the production of lymphocytes in the body to assist the body’s defences.
