Wyeth Initiates INTORACT -- A New Clinical Trial to Examine TORISEL Plus Avastin for First-Line Treatment of Advanced Kidney Cancer
Date:5/30/2008

Most common grades 3/4 adverse events included asthenia (11%), dyspnea (9%), hemoglobin decreased (20%), lymphocytes decreased (16%), glucose increased (16%), phosphorus decreased (18%), and triglycerides increased (44%).

Strong inducers of CYP3A4/5 (e.g., dexamethasone, rifampin) and strong inhibitors of CYP3A4 (e.g., ketoconazole, atazanavir) may decrease and increase concentrations of the major metabolite of TORISEL, respectively. If alternatives cannot be used, dose modifications of TORISEL are recommended. St. John's Wort may decrease TORISEL plasma concentrations, and grapefruit juice may increase plasma concentrations of the major metabolite of TORISEL, and therefore both should be avoided. The combination of TORISEL and sunitinib resulted in dose-limiting toxicity (Grade 3/4 erythematous maculopapular rash, and gout/cellulitis requiring hospitalization).
