Patient Selection

Select patients for treatment with GAVRETO based on the presence of a RET gene fusion (NSCLC or thyroid cancer) or RET gene mutation (MTC) [see Clinical Studies (14)].

Information on FDA-approved tests for RET gene fusion (NSCLC) is available at http://www.fda.gov/CompanionDiagnostics.

An FDA-approved test for the detection of RET gene fusion (thyroid cancer) and RET gene mutations is not currently available.

Recommended Dosage

The recommended dosage of GAVRETO is 400 mg orally once daily on an empty stomach (no food intake for at least 2 hours before and at least 1 hour after taking GAVRETO) [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Continue treatment until disease progression or until unacceptable toxicity.

If a dose of GAVRETO is missed, it can be taken as soon as possible on the same day. Resume the regular daily dose schedule for GAVRETO the next day.

Do not take an additional dose if vomiting occurs after GAVRETO but continue with the next dose as scheduled.

Dose Modification for Use with Combined P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and Strong CYP3A Inhibitors

Avoid coadministration of GAVRETO with known combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inhibitors. If coadministration with a combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inhibitor cannot be avoided, reduce the current dose of GAVRETO as recommended in Table 3. After the inhibitor has been discontinued for 3 to 5 elimination half-lives, resume GAVRETO at the dose taken prior to initiating the combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inhibitor [see Drug Interactions (7.1), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Table 3: Recommended Dosage Modifications for GAVRETO for Coadministration with Combined P-gp and Strong CYP3A Inhibitors
Current GAVRETO Dosage Recommended GAVRETO Dosage
400 mg orally once daily 200 mg orally once daily
300 mg orally once daily 200 mg orally once daily
200 mg orally once daily 100 mg orally once daily

Dose Modification for Use with Strong CYP3A Inducers

Avoid coadministration of GAVRETO with strong CYP3A inducers. If coadministration with a strong CYP3A inducer cannot be avoided, increase the starting dose of GAVRETO to double the current GAVRETO dosage starting on Day 7 of coadministration of GAVRETO with the strong CYP3A inducer. After the inducer has been discontinued for at least 14 days, resume GAVRETO at the dose taken prior to initiating the strong CYP3A inducer [see Drug Interactions (7.1), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
