Drug Interactions
The interaction of nimotuzumab with other cytostatic drugs has not been widely evaluated to date. The combination of nimotuzumab with various chemotherapy agents (docetaxel, carboplatin and capecitabine) were explored in 19 patients with malignant gliomas or squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck and found acceptable toxicity. Synergistic effects and potentiation of the anti-tumor activity had been already shown when other EGFR inhibitors have been used in combination with chemotherapy.
