* Suggested volume based on usual dose range and any concentration range of stability data
** Protect from light means minimizing exposure to direct sunlight over a storage period. More specific information on protection from light (eg, protecting container and tubing during
administration) will be indicated in the Under the Special Precautions/Notes column.
*** Contains DMA (N,N dimethylacetamide). Product may be incompatible with closed system transfer devices such as ChemoLock.

Centres are not to change the content locally but should forward suggestions to the Cancer Drug Manual staff.

Explanatory Notes
Stability data assumes products prepared using standard aseptic technique in biological safety cabinet at low risk for contamination according to the classification
141,142
outlined in USP 797.
Vial stability: Stability of solution after first puncture or reconstituted solution.
Storage temperature: If information states same stability with refrigerator and room temperature storage, then fridge stability is bolded as preferred (ie, to minimize
growth of micro-organisms).
Discard unused portion: Unused portion from single use vials should be discarded at the end of the day.
“overfill known” is stated if the manufacturer states overfill that is present is within acceptable limits.
“Complete administration within __” is stated if the manufacturer specifies that the infusion must be completed in a specific time frame following preparation,
usually including entire time required for preparation (from first puncture), storage, and administration of infusion.
