This drug may cause drowsiness or dizziness, if affected, do not drive or operate machinery.
Obtain CBC with differential, and pregnancy test prior to initiation and during each cycle of treatment. Monitor LFT and at baseline, monthly during the first 3 months of treatment, and periodically thereafter. Monitor blood pressure, gastrointestinal disturbances, and changes in prothrombin time, INR, and bleeding episodes regularly.
Increased risk of gastrointestinal adverse effect with corticosteroids and NSAIDs. Increased plasma concentration with strong P-gp inhibitors (e.g. ketoconazole, erythromycin, ciclosporine). Decreased plasma concentration with strong P-gp inducers (e.g. rifampicin, carbamazepine, phenytoin).
Reduced plasma concentration with St. John’s wort.
Description: Nintedanib is an inhibitor of multiple receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) and nonreceptor tyrosine kinases (nRTKs). It binds competitively to the ATP binding pocket of these receptors and blocks the intracellular signaling which is vital for the proliferation, migration, and transformation of fibroblasts involved in the pathology of pulmonary fibrosis. Pharmacokinetics: Absorption: Food, increases exposure and delays absorption. Absolute bioavailability: Approx 5%. Time to peak plasma concentration: 2-4 hours. Distribution: Volume of distribution: 1,050 L. Plasma protein binding: Approx 98%, mainly to albumin. Metabolism: Initially metabolised in the liver via hydrolytic cleavage by esterases to a free acid moiety, BIBF 1202, then undergoes glucuronidation by uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) enzymes; metabolised by CYP3A4 enzymes (minor). Excretion: Mainly via faeces (approx 93%); urine (<1%). Terminal elimination half-life: 9-15 hours.
Store at 25°C. Protect from heat and moisture.
