Eribulin (Halaven®) is used to treat advanced breast cancer and liposarcoma (a type of soft tissue sarcoma) that is locally advanced or has spread to other parts of the body. It may sometimes be used to treat other cancers.
It is best to read this information with our general information about chemotherapy and the type of cancer you have.
Eribulin may only be available in some situations. Your cancer doctor can tell you if it is appropriate for you. Some people may be given it as part of a clinical trial.
If a drug is not available on the NHS, there may be different ways you are still able to have it. Your cancer doctor can give you advice. We have more information on what to do if a treatment isn’t available.
