Solid tumours, bladder tumours, stomach cancer, pancreas cancer

Adult: IV: Solid tumours Suggested regimen: Initial: 10-20 mg/m2; may repeat 6-8 wkly depending on blood count. Do not repeat if leucocyte and platelet counts are below acceptable levels. Do not re-administer if the nadir of the leucocyte count is <2,000 cells/mm3. Intravesical Superficial bladder tumours Instill 10-40 mg 1-3 times/wk for a total of 20 doses. Prevention of recurrent bladder tumours Instill 20 mg 2 wkly or 40 mg 1-3-mthly. Renal Impairment Serum creatinine >1.7 mg/dL: Avoid use CrCl <10 mL/min: Decrease dose by 25% CAPD: Decrease dose by 25% Contraindication ::

Repeated haematologic studies are necessary during treatment and for at least 7 wk after discontinuation of the drug. Discontinue use when the leucocyte count decreases to <4000/mm3 or the platelet count decreases to <150,000/mm3 or if a progressive decline in either occurs. Monitor patient for signs of renal or pulmonary toxicity. Drug Side Effects ::
CHF; fever; alopecia, nail banding/discolouration; nausea, vomiting, anorexia; anaemia; rash; stomatitis; paraesthesia; increased creatinine; interstitial pneumonitis, infiltrates, dyspnoea, cough; malaise, pruritus, extravasation, bladder fibrosis/contraction (intravesical admin).

Drug Mode of Action ::
Mitomycin is an antineoplastic antibiotic which is enzymatically reduced to its active metabolite w/in susceptible cells. The active metabolite appears to cause cross-linking of DNA (primarily w/ guanine and cytosine pairs). It is also active against gm+ve bacteria and some viruses.
Drug Interactions ::
Increased incidence of cardiotoxicity w/ doxorubicin. Potentially Fatal: Increased risk of intravascular haemolysis and renal failure w/ fluorouracil. Increased risk of haemolytic uraemic syndrome w/ tamoxifen. Acute pulmonary toxicity w/ vinca alkaloids (e.g. vinblastine, vinorelbine). Increased bone marrow depressant effects of aclarubicin.
