"April 19, 2010 (Washington, D.C.) -- New research offers hope that people with lung cancer will live longer if drug therapy is guided by the molecular traits of tumors.
"The goal is to match the correct drug with the right patient, base"...
Single oral doses of TARCEVA up to 1,000 mg in healthy subjects and weekly doses up to 1,600 mg in cancer patients have been tolerated. Repeated twice-daily doses of 200 mg single-agent TARCEVA in healthy subjects were poorly tolerated after only a few days of dosing. Based on the data from these studies, an unacceptable incidence of severe adverse reactions, such as diarrhea, rash, and liver transaminase elevation, may occur above the recommended dose [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION]. In case of suspected overdose, TARCEVA should be withheld and symptomatic treatment instituted.
