Ixazomib Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the clinical use of ixazomib during breastfeeding. Because its half-life is about 9.5 days, it is likely to accumulate in the infant. It is also given in combination with leflunomide and dexamethasone, which may increase the risk to the infant. The manufacturer recommends that breastfeeding be discontinued during ixazomib therapy and for 90 days after the last dose.
