Drug Dose ::
Adult: PO Part of the conditioning regimen in patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation 60 mg/kg/day for 2 days. Malignancies Low dose regimen: 2-6 mg/kg/wk in divided doses. IV Malignancies Moderate dose regimen: 10-15 mg/kg/wk; high dose regimen: 20-40 mg/kg given every 10-20 days.
Bladder haemorrhage. Patients with bone-marrow aplasia, acute infection, drug- or radiation-induced urothelial toxicity. Porphyria. Pregnancy and lactation.
Drug Precautions ::
Blood disorders. Elderly or debilitated patients. Diabetic patients. Renal or hepatic impairment or who have gone adrenaloctomy. Previous treatment with x-ray or cytotoxic agents. Monitor haematological profile and presence of RBCs in urine regularly. Maintain adequate hydration and frequent micturition to reduce the risk of cystitis.

Drug Mode of Action ::
Cyclophosphamide is a prodrug which is converted in the body to the active metabolites. It acts at any stage of the cell cycle but its main action is blockage at the G2 stage. It arrests cell division by alkylating the DNA in a dose-dependent manner. It also exerts immunosuppressive effects possibly due to a cytotoxic effect on lymphocytes.
Drug Interactions ::
Chronic high-dose administration of phenobarbital can increase the metabolism and leukopaenic activity of cyclophosphamide. Doxorubicin and daunorubicin increase risk of cardiotoxicity. Allopurinol may increase risk of bone marrow toxicity while chloramphenicol may increase the serum T1/2 of cyclophosphamide. Potentially Fatal: Serious toxicity when combined with other myelotoxic drugs or radiotherapy.
