Carboplatin-Teva lyophilisate for preparing a solution 150mg №1 bottle

pharmachologic effect

Carboplatin is an inorganic complex compound containing a heavy metal - platinum.
It is believed that the main mechanism of action of this drug is due to binding to DNA, resulting in the formation of predominantly intra-helix stitching, which alter the structure of DNA and inhibit its synthesis. This effect appears regardless of the phase of the cell cycle. Hydration of carboplatin, which results in the formation of the active form (s) of the drug, is slower than the hydration of cisplatin.


After a single injection of carboplatin in the form of intravenous infusion for 1 hour, the concentration in plasma of total platinum and free (ultrafiltrable) platinum decreases in accordance with a two-phase model of first-order kinetics. The initial T1 / 2 of free platinum is about 1-2 hours, and the terminal T1 / 2 is 3-6 hours; total platinum is characterized by a similar initial T1 / 2, but its terminal T1 / 2 is longer (about 24 hours). With repeated dose injections for four consecutive days, accumulation of platinum in plasma was not observed. 24 hours after dosing, more than 85% of platinum in plasma is in a state bound to proteins.
Carboplatin is excreted primarily by the kidneys, and about 30% of the administered dose is excreted unchanged. In patients with a CC of 60 ml / min or more, approximately 65% ​​and 70% of the administered dose are eliminated, respectively, 12 and 24 hours after the administration. Since carboplatin is eliminated almost entirely by glomerular filtration, only a very small concentration of carboplatin is present in the renal tubules, which may explain the small nephrotoxic potential of the drug compared with cisplatin.

Indications for use of the drug KARBOPLATIN-TEVA

Treatment of the following solid tumors:
- ovarian cancer;
- germ cell tumors of men and women;
- lung cancer;
- cervical cancer;
- head and neck tumors;
- osteogenic sarcoma;
- Medulloblastoma.

Dosing regimen

Carboplatin can be used both as a monotherapy, and in combination with other anticancer drugs. The drug is introduced into / in the following dose regimens:
- 300 - 400 mg / m2 i / v drip for 15-60 minutes or as a 24-hour infusion;
- 100 mg / m2 IV drip for 15-60 minutes daily for 5 days.
The introduction of carboplatin is repeated at intervals of at least 4 weeks with platelet counts of at least 100,000 cells / mm3 of blood and neutrophils of at least 1,500 cells / mm3 of blood.
Fluid injection before or after the use of carboplatin, as well as forced diuresis is not required.
Depending on the state of the bone marrow or kidney function, the therapeutic dose of carboplatin can be corrected as follows:
- for patients who have symptoms of moderate or severe hematologic toxicity (ie, the number of platelets and neutrophilic leukocytes less than 50,000 and 500 / mm3, respectively), consider the possibility of reducing the dose - both in cases of monotherapy and in combined treatment regimens - by 25%;
- in patients with symptoms of impaired renal function (CC <60 ml / min), the risk of developing the toxic effects of carboplatin increases, therefore, the dose of carboplatin should be reduced as follows:
Creatinine clearance (ml / min) Recommended carboplatin dose (mg / m2)
41-59 250
16-40 200
In the presence of risk factors, such as, for example, previous courses of myelosuppressive therapy and / or age over 65 years, a dose reduction of 20-25% is recommended; careful use of carboplatin is also recommended if the patient has previously been treated with nephrotoxic drugs such as cisplatin.
Before use, the carboplatin solution must be visually inspected for the presence of mechanical impurities and discoloration. Carboplatin should be diluted in physiological solution or 5% glucose solution to achieve a concentration of 1-0.5 mg / ml immediately before use - an infusion should be made no more than 24 hours after preparation of the solution.

Side effect

On the part of the hematopoietic system: the main toxic factor limiting the dose of carboplatin is the suppression of the function of bone marrow hematopoiesis. Myelosuppression is dose-dependent. The lowest level of platelets and leukocytes / granulocytes, as a rule, is achieved in 2-3 weeks after the start of taking the drug, while thrombocytopenia is more common.Adequate recovery to a level that allows the next dose of carboplatin to be taken usually takes at least 4 weeks. A sufficiently large number of patients may also show symptoms of anemia (hemoglobin level less than 11 g / dl), the intensity of which depends on the total dose of the drug. It may be necessary to conduct transfusion therapy, especially in patients undergoing long-term treatment (for example, more than 6 cycles of the drug). There is also a chance of clinical complications, such as fever, infectious diseases, sepsis / septic shock and bleeding.
On the part of the gastrointestinal tract: within 6-12 hours after taking the drug, there is a likelihood of nausea and / or vomiting (mild to moderate), lasting up to 24 hours or more. The risk of emetic effects can be reduced by pre-treatment with antiemetic agents, continuous intravenous infusion of carboplatin for 24 hours, or fractional dosing for 5 consecutive days. Other types of adverse effects on the gastrointestinal tract, such as inflammation of the oral mucosa, diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain, have also been observed in some cases.
On the part of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system: there is a likelihood of peripheral neuropathies, mainly in the form of paresthesia and reduction of deep tendon reflexes, which is more likely in patients over 65 years of age with prolonged or previous treatment with cisplatin. It is also possible the appearance of symptoms of dysfunction of the central nervous system. Prolonged drug therapy can lead to cumulative neurotoxicity.
On the part of the hearing: ototoxicity manifests itself in the form of tinnitus and impairment of hearing.
On the part of the organs of vision: there is a possibility of temporary deterioration or complete loss of vision (loss of the ability to distinguish colors and see the light is possible), as well as other disorders of visual function. Improvement and / or full recovery of vision, as a rule, occurs within a few weeks after stopping the drug. In patients with impaired renal function, treated with high doses of carboplatin, cortical blindness was observed.
On the part of the kidneys: there may be a slight and temporary increase in serum creatinine and urea concentrations. Acute renal damage was rarely observed.The risk of nephrotoxicity with carboplatin intake (reduced creatinine clearance) increases with increasing doses of carboplatin, as well as in patients who have previously received treatment with cisplatin.
On the part of the liver: there may be a slight and, as a rule, a temporary increase in the concentrations of ACT, bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase in the blood serum. In patients treated with high doses of carboplatin with autologous bone marrow transplantation, significant impaired liver function was observed.
On the electrolyte balance side: hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, hyponatremia and / or hypomagnesiemia are possible.
Allergic reactions: erythematous rash, fever, pruritus, urticaria, bronchospasm, arterial hypotension and anaphylactic reactions. These reactions can occur within a few minutes after the introduction of carboplatin. In rare cases, exfoliative dermatitis may also occur.
Other side effects: alopecia, asthenia, flu-like symptoms, hemolytic-uremic syndrome, myalgia / arthralgia, heart failure, cerebrovascular disorders and allergic reactions directly at the injection site.
