Just starting Dec 1st.
Now there isn't a pill. Here is the instructions on it.
First Treatment Cycle
The recommended starting dose for the first treatment cycle, for all patients regardless of baseline hematology laboratory values, is 75 mg/m2 subcutaneously or intravenously, daily for 7 days. Patients should be premedicated for nausea and vomiting.
Complete blood counts, liver chemistries and serum creatinine should be obtained prior to first dose.
Subsequent Treatment Cycles
Cycles should be repeated every 4 weeks. The dose may be increased to 100 mg/m2 if no beneficial effect is seen after 2 treatment cycles and if no toxicity other than nausea and vomiting has occurred. It is recommended that patients be treated for a minimum of 4 to 6 cycles. However, complete or partial response may require additional treatment cycles. Treatment may be continued as long as the patient continues to benefit.
