Adult: Initially, 75 mg/m2 daily via SC inj or IV infusion over 10-40 min for 7 days, followed by a rest period of 21 days (28-day cycle), may be increased to 100 mg/m2 daily if there is no benefit after 2 cycles, and no toxicity other than nausea and vomiting has occurred. Recommended treatment duration: Min of 4 to 6 cycles; continued as long as the patient benefits, or until disease progression. Dose adjustment may be needed for haematological toxicity.
Renal Impairment
Reduce dose by 50% on the next cycle if serum bicarbonate falls to <20 mmol/L. Delay next treatment cycle if serum creatinine or BUN is >2 times the baseline value and above the upper limit of normal (ULN) until values return to normal or baseline, and then reduce dose by 50% on the next cycle.
Hướng dẫn pha thuốc
IV: Add 10 mL of sterile water for inj to a vial containing 100 mg to obtain a final concentration of 10 mg/mL. Shake vigorously until soln is dissolved and clear.

Tác dụng
Description: Azacitidine, a synthetic pyrimidine nucleoside analog of cytidine, is believed to exert its antineoplastic effects by inhibiting DNA methyltransferase (the enzyme responsible for methylating newly synthesised DNA in mammalian cells) thereby causing hypomethylation of DNA and by direct toxicity on abnormal hematopoietic cells in the bone marrow.
Absorption: Rapidly and completely absorbed (SC). Bioavailability: Approx 89% (SC). Time to peak plasma concentration: 30 min (SC).
Distribution: Volume of distribution: 76 ± 26 L (IV).
Metabolism: Metabolised in the liver via spontaneous hydrolysis and deamination by cytidine deaminase into several metabolites.
Excretion: Mainly via urine, approx 50% (SC) and 85% (IV), as metabolites; faeces (<1%). Elimination half-life: Approx 4 hr.
