Germ cell testicular carcinoma W/ mesna and adequate hydration: 1.2 g/m2/day for 5 days, repeat treatment 3 wkly or after recovery from haematological toxicity. Renal impairment: CrCl (ml/min) <10 Administer 75% of dose. Contraindication ::
Hypersensitivity; severe bone-marrow depression. Pregnancy, lactation.

Pregnancy category ::
Drug Mode of Action ::
Ifosfamide is converted to its active metabolites via hepatic microsomal enzymes. These active metabolites act as alkylating agents, disrupting DNA and protein synthesis of the target cells. It is routinely given with mesna to reduce urothelial toxicity.
Drug Interactions ::
Causes enhanced toxicity with allopurinol, cisplatin. Ifosfamide enhances the anticoagulant effect of warfarin. CYP2A6 inducers (e.g. amobarbital, pentobarbital, phenobarbital, rifampin and secobarbital) may reduce serum levels of ifosfamide while the inhibitors (e.g. isoniazid, methoxsalen and miconazole) may increase its serum levels. CYP3A4 inducers (e.g. aminoglutethimide, carbamazepine, nafcillin, nevirapine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and rifamycins) may reduce serum levels of ifosfamide while the inhibitors (e.g. azole antifungals, clarithromycin, diclofenac, doxycycline, erythromycin, imatinib, isoniazid) may increase its serum levels.
