Therapeutic experience in children has shown that a more frequent (e.g. six times) adminis­tration at shorter intervals (e.g. 3 hours) is useful (total dose of MESNA Stada 60% of the oxazaphosphorine dose).
The total dose of MESNA Stada may be increased up to 120% of the oxazaphosphorine dose in high dose cytotoxic therapy with oxazaphosphorines (e.g. conditioning prior to bone marrow transplantation).
In the case of continuous infusions of ifosfamide, it has proven effective to administer a mesna bolus injection (20% of the ifosfamide dose) at time 0 (start of infusion) and to add MESNA Stada to the continuous infusion at a dose of up to 100% of the ifosfamide dose. To maintain the uroprotection after the end of the ifosfamide infusion, a mesna dose equivalent to up to 50% of the ifosfamide dose should be given for further 6-12 hours.
