Drug Interactions With Carmustine Implant

Other Chemotherapy Medicines
The carmustine implant has not been studied with other chemotherapy medicines. Therefore, it is unknown if carmustine implants increase the risk for short- or long-term side effects when used in combination with other chemotherapy medicines. However, the medicine does not appear to increase the risk for side effects when given in combination with radiation treatment.
Carmustine implants can make sipuleucel-T less effective. This is because sipuleucel-T is thought to work by stimulating the body's immune system, while carmustine implants may decrease the activity of the immune system. Talk to your healthcare provider about this possible interaction before using these medicines together.
