Lymphomas, Sarcomas, Carcinomas, Small cell lung cancer, Ovarian cancer, Germ cell tumors, Metastatic Testicular Tumors, Metastatic Ovarian Tumors, Advanced Bladder Cancer
Drug Dose ::
Adult: IV Metastatic ovarian cancer As monotherapy: 100 mg/m2 per cycle, given as a single dose once every 4 wk. For combination therapy w/ cyclophosphamide: 75-100 mg/m2 on day 1 of every 4-wk cycle. Metastatic testicular tumours 20 mg/m2/day for 5 days per cycle. Advanced bladder cancer 50-70 mg/m2 per cycle once every 3-4 wk.
Patients with severe renal or auditory disorder, known hypersensitivity, severe bone marrow suppression, peripheral neuropathy, pregnancy, lactation.
Drug Precautions ::
Patients with renal or hepatic disorder, myelosuppression. Monitor renal, neurological and auditory function. Perform blood counts regularly. Maintain adequate hydration before and 24 hr after admin to minimise nephrotoxicity.
Drug Side Effects ::
Severe nausea and vomiting. Serious toxic effects on the kidneys, bone marrows and ears. Hypomagnesaemia, hypocalcaemia, hyperuricaemia. Peripheral neuropathies, papilloedema, optic neuritis, seizures. Ototoxicity (children) manifested as tinnitus, loss of hearing, deafness or vestibular toxicity. Potentially Fatal: Rarely, renal damage due to inadequate hydration during therapy. Very rarely life-threatening myelosuppression. Anaphylactoid reactions (rare) and cardiac abnormalities.
Pregnancy category ::
Drug Mode of Action ::
Cisplatin modifies cell cycle by interfering with DNA structure and function. Effects are most prominent during the S phase but cells are killed at all stages. Cisplatin synergises with other anticancer drugs e.g. fluorouracil. It has a narrow therapeutic margin and is highly toxic.
Drug Interactions ::
Synergistic with 5-fluorouracil and etoposide. Efficacy increased and toxicity reduced when combined with radioprotecting agent WR 2721. At doses ?100 mg, cisplatin is an ideal drug to combine with other cytotoxic drugs; unlike other antineoplastic drugs, it causes little myelosuppression. Potentially Fatal: Potentiates nephrotoxicity with aminoglycosides. Increased toxicity when combined with other cytotoxic drugs.
