ADJUST DOSING INTERVAL: Administration of trifluridine-tipiracil with a standardized high-fat, high-calorie meal has been shown to decrease trifluridine peak plasma concentration (Cmax) as well as tipiracil Cmax and systemic exposure (AUC) by approximately 40% compared to administration in a fasting state in patients with cancer given a single 35 mg/m2 dose. No change in trifluridine AUC was observed.

MANAGEMENT: Based on the observed correlation between increases in the Cmax of trifluridine and decreases in neutrophil counts, trifluridine-tipiracil should be taken within one hour after completion of the morning and evening meals.
