In brief: Lung function...
An important side effect to be aware of with bleomycin is its effects on lung function.
Most oncologists will perform pulmonary function tests (pfts) before administration of bleomycin in order to obtain a baseline. During therapy the pfts will be repeated to monitor for a decrease in lung function. If this occurs, sometimes the dosing of bleomycin will be changed or it will be stopped altogether.
