IRX-2 is given through an injection, using a small needle. The needle is similar to the kind used in flu vaccinations. Before surgery, IRX-2 is given as 2 separate injections on each side of your neck. Each injection takes only a few minutes.
Before surgery, IRX-2 treatment is given for a total of 10 days over 2 consecutive weeks. Other drugs are also given along with IRX-2.
After surgery, you will receive IRX-2 every 3 months over the following year. IRX-2 given after surgery is injected into the arm.
