Combination of TYKERB(R) (lapatinib) Plus Letrozole Demonstrated Significant Improvement in Delaying Disease Progression for HER2+/ErbB2+ Post-Menopausal Metastatic Breast Cancer
Date:12/11/2008

TYKERB is to be administered to patients with preexisting cardiac conditions, including uncontrolled or symptomatic angina, arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure. Confirm normal LVEF before starting TYKERB, and continue evaluations during treatment.

Patients with Severe Hepatic Impairment - If TYKERB is to be administered to patients with severe hepatic impairment, dose reduction should be considered.

Diarrhea - Diarrhea, including severe diarrhea, has been reported during treatment with TYKERB and was the most common adverse reaction resulting in discontinuation of TYKERB therapy. Proactive management of diarrhea with anti-diarrheal agents is important, and severe cases of diarrhea may require administration of oral or intravenous electrolytes and fluids, and interruption or discontinuation of therapy with TYKERB.

Interstitial Lung Disease/Pneumonitis - TYKERB has been associated with interstitial lung disease and pneumonitis. Patients should be monitored for pulmonary symptoms indicative of interstitial lung disease or pneumonitis and if symptoms are ¿ Grade 3 (NCI CTCAE), TYKERB should be discontinued.

QT Prolongation - TYKERB prolongs the QT interval in some patients. TYKERB should be administered with caution to patients who have or may develop prolongation of QTc. Hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia should be corrected prior to TYKERB administration. Baseline and on-treatment electrocardiograms with QT measurement should be considered.

Pregnancy: Pregnancy D - TYKERB can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Women should be advised not to become pregnant when taking TYKERB. If this drug is used during pregnancy, or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, the patient should be apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus.
