Ibrance (palbociclib) Disease Interactions

There are 5 disease interactions with Ibrance (palbociclib):

Moderate

Multikinase Inhibitors (Includes Ibrance) ↔ Lung Toxicity

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Interstitial Pneumonitis, Pulmonary Impairment

The use of certain multikinase inhibitors has been associated with pulmonary toxicity. Serious cases of interstitial lung disease (ILD), including fatal cases and interstitial pneumonitis or pulmonary fibrosis have been reported. Caution is recommended when using these agents in patients with a history of interstitial pneumonitis or pulmonary fibrosis or those patients presenting with acute onset of new or progressive unexplained pulmonary symptoms such as dyspnea, cough, and fever pending diagnostic evaluation. If ILD is confirmed, permanently discontinue these agents and institute appropriate measures. Immediately withhold treatment in patients diagnosed with ILD/pneumonitis and permanently discontinue therapy if no other potential causes of ILD/pneumonitis have been identified.

Moderate

Palbociclib (Includes Ibrance) ↔ Hepatic Impairment

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Liver Disease

Based on a population pharmacokinetic analysis with palbociclib mild hepatic impairment had no effect on the exposure of palbociclib. Close monitoring is recommended when using this agent in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment as the pharmacokinetics of palbociclib have not been studied in these patients. Dose modification of concomitant medications may be needed based of hepatic impairment.

Moderate

Palbociclib (Includes Ibrance) ↔ Neutropenia

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Neutropenia, Fever

The use of palbociclib may cause neutropenia, including febrile neutropenia and neutropenic sepsis. It is recommended to monitor complete blood counts prior to starting treatment and at the beginning of each therapy cycle with palbociclib, as well as on Day 15 of the first 2 cycles, and as clinically indicated thereafter. Dose interruption, dose reduction, or delay in starting treatment cycles is recommended for patients who develop Grade 3 or 4 neutropenia. Care and close monitoring is recommended, in particular for any episodes of fever.

Moderate

Palbociclib (Includes Ibrance) ↔ Premenopausal

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Premenopausal Anovulation

Pre/perimenopausal women treated with the combination palbociclib plus fulvestrant therapy should be treated with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonists according to current clinical practice standards. Care and close monitoring is recommended.

Moderate

Palbociclib (Includes Ibrance) ↔ Renal Impairment

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Renal Dysfunction

Based on a population pharmacokinetic analysis with palbociclib mild and moderate renal impairment had no effect on the exposure of palbociclib. Close monitoring is recommended when using this agent in patients with severe renal impairment as the pharmacokinetics of palbociclib in these patients have not been studied.

Drug Interaction Classification

The classifications below are a general guideline only. It is difficult to determine the relevance of a particular drug interaction to any individual given the large number of variables.
Major Highly clinically significant. Avoid combinations; the risk of the interaction outweighs the benefit.
Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No information available.
