Dosage form: capsule

Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on June 8, 2020.

Patient Selection

Select patients for the treatment of metastatic NSCLC with ROZLYTREK based on the presence of ROS1 rearrangement(s) in tumor specimens [see Clinical Studies (14.1)]. An FDA-approved test for detection of ROS1 rearrangement(s) in NSCLC for selecting patients for treatment with ROZLYTREK is not available.

Select patients for treatment of locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors with ROZLYTREK based on the presence of a NTRK gene fusion [see Clinical Studies (14.2)]. An FDA-approved test for the detection of NTRK gene fusion in solid tumors is not available.

Recommended Dosage for ROS1-Positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

The recommended dosage of ROZLYTREK is 600 mg orally once daily with or without food until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Recommended Dosage for NTRK Gene Fusion-Positive Solid Tumors

Adults

The recommended dosage of ROZLYTREK in adults is 600 mg orally once daily with or without food until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Pediatric Patients 12 Years and Older (Adolescents)

The recommended dosage of ROZLYTREK is based on body surface area (BSA) as shown in Table 1 below. Take ROZLYTREK orally once daily with or without food until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Body Surface Area (BSA) Recommended Dosage
(Orally once daily)
Greater than 1.50 m2 600 mg
1.11 to 1.50 m2 500 mg

Dosage Modifications for Drug Interactions

Moderate and Strong CYP3A Inhibitors

Adults and Pediatric Patients 12 Years and Older with BSA Greater than 1.50 m2

Avoid coadministration of ROZLYTREK with moderate or strong CYP3A inhibitors. If coadministration cannot be avoided, reduce the ROZLYTREK dose as follows:

  • Moderate CYP3A Inhibitors: 200 mg orally once daily
  • Strong CYP3A Inhibitors: 100 mg orally once daily

After discontinuation of a strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitor for 3 to 5 elimination half-lives, resume the ROZLYTREK dose that was taken prior to initiating the CYP3A inhibitor [see Drug Interactions (7.1), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Administration

Swallow capsules whole. Do not open, crush, chew, or dissolve the contents of the capsule.

If a patient misses a dose, instruct patients to make up that dose unless the next dose is due within 12 hours.

If a patient vomits immediately after taking a dose, instruct patients to repeat that dose.
