How Hydrea 500mg working?

In cancer, Hydrea 500mg Capsule works by blocking an enzyme (ribonucleotide reductase) which is required for synthesis of DNA. This prevents the cancer cells from growing and multiplying.

This helps the RBCs assume a normal shape, improves blood flow and protects against complications such as painful sickle cell episodes.
