Teniposide injection is used in combination with other medicines to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
Teniposide belongs to the group of medicines known as antineoplastic agents. It interferes with the growth of the cancer cells, which are eventually destroyed.

Other effects, like hair loss, may not be serious but may cause concern. Some effects may not occur until months or years after the medicine is used.
