Caution For Usage
Incompatibilities: Other drugs should not be added to the infusion solution.
Special precautions for disposal and other handling: Preparation: Irinotecan must be diluted prior to infusion in 5% Dextrose Injection, (preferred) or 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection to a final concentration range of 0.12 to 2.8 mg/mL.
Irinotecan is intended for single use only and any unused portion should be discarded. Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discolouration prior to administration whenever solution and container permit. Inspect vial contents for particulate matter and repeat inspection when drug product is withdrawn from vial into syringe.
It is recommended that in order to reduce microbiological hazard, the infusion solutions should be prepared immediately prior to use and infusion commenced as soon as practicable after preparation. If not used immediately, in-use storage times and conditions prior to use are the responsibility of the user and should not be longer than 24 hours at 2°C to 8°C, unless reconstitution/dilution has taken place in controlled and validated aseptic conditions.
Handling: As with other potentially toxic anticancer agents, care should be exercised in the handling and preparation of infusion solutions prepared from irinotecan. The use of gloves is recommended. If irinotecan contacts the skin, wash the skin immediately and thoroughly with soap and water. If irinotecan contacts the mucous membranes, flush thoroughly with water.
Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discolouration prior to administration whenever solution and container permit. Inspect vial contents for particulate matter and repeat inspection when drug product is withdrawn from vial into syringe.
