Usual Adult Dose for Liver Metastasis in Adenocarcinoma

Recommended dose: 0.1 to 0.6 mg/kg/day by continuous arterial infusion; the higher dosage ranges (0.4 mg to 0.6 mg) are usually used for hepatic artery infusion because the liver metabolizes the drug (thus reducing the potential for systemic toxicity)


Use: For the palliative management of gastrointestinal adenocarcinoma metastatic to the liver, when given by continuous regional intra-arterial infusion in carefully selected patients who are considered incurable by surgery or other means.
