Busulfan

Effects and efficacy:
Different dosage forms of busulfan have different indications. Busulfan tablets: used in the chronic phase of chronic myeloid leukemia, and are not effective for patients lacking the Philadelphia chromosome Ph1. It can also be used to treat chronic myeloproliferative diseases such as essential thrombocythemia and polycythemia vera. Busulfan injection: used in combination with cyclophosphamide as a pretreatment regimen before allogeneic hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation for chronic myeloid leukemia.
Usage and dosage:
Common dosage of busulfan tablets for adults: chronic myeloid leukemia, total daily amount 4-6 mg/m2, once a day. If the white blood cell count drops to 20×109/L, the drug should be discontinued as appropriate. Or give a maintenance dose of 1-2 mg daily or every other day to maintain the white blood cell count at around 10×109/L. Busulfan injection should be administered through a central venous catheter, and each dose requires an infusion of 2 hours, once every 6 hours for 4 consecutive days, for a total of 16 times. Cyclophosphamide was given 60 mg/kg intravenously over 1 hour once a day for 2 days 3 days before bone marrow transplantation, 6 hours after the 16th dose of this product. All patients should be given phenytoin prophylactically because busulfan is known to cross the blood-brain barrier and induce epilepsy. Phenytoin reduces the plasma AUC of busulfan by 15%; other anticonvulsants may increase the plasma AUC of busulfan, thereby increasing the risk of hepatic veno-occlusive disease or epilepsy. If other anticonvulsants must be used, plasma busulfan exposure should be monitored. Antiemetics should be given before the first start and continued throughout the medication period according to a certain plan. The clearance of this product is most predictable when it is administered according to calibrated ideal body weight. If the dose of this product is calculated based on actual body weight, ideal body weight or other factors, it may result in significant differences in clearance between lean, normal and obese patients. When forming a pretreatment regimen for bone marrow or peripheral blood progenitor cell transplantation, the adult dose of this product is usually 0.8 mg/kg, taking the lower value of ideal body weight or actual body weight, and administering it once every 6 hours for 4 consecutive days (a total of 16 times). For obese or extremely obese patients, this product should be administered according to the calibrated ideal body weight. The calculation formula for ideal body weight (IBW) is as follows (height cm, weight kg): IBW (kg, male) = 50 + 0.91 (height cm-152), IBW (kg, female) = 45 + 0.91 (height cm-152). The calibrated ideal body weight (AIBW) formula is: AIBW = IBW + 0.25 (actual body weight – IBW).
Adverse reactions:
Busulfan tablets can produce bone marrow suppression. Common symptoms are granulocytopenia and thrombocytopenia. Severe cases require timely discontinuation of the drug. Long-term use or excessive use of the drug can cause pulmonary fibrosis. There may be skin pigmentation, hyperuricemia and sexual dysfunction, feminization of male breasts, testicular atrophy, and irregular menstruation in women. Cataracts, erythema multiforme rash, and polyarteritis nodosa are rare adverse reactions. There have been individual reports of epileptic seizures after high doses; endocardial fibrosis, and the corresponding symptoms; and rare hepatic venous atresia. The following section of busulfan injection describes clinically significant adverse events in clinical trials of this product, regardless of whether they are caused by the drug. Hematological system: Under the recommended dosage regimen, this product causes 100% of patients to have deep bone marrow suppression, severe agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, anemia, etc., so blood counts must be monitored during treatment until recovery. Gastrointestinal tract: Gastrointestinal toxicity is very common and is generally considered to be drug-related. Only a few are classified as severe toxicity. In allogeneic transplant clinical trials, 92% of patients experienced mild or moderate nausea, 95% of patients experienced mild or moderate vomiting, and 7% experienced severe nausea by 28 days after transplantation.

Adverse reactions of dimethylacetamide (DMA): DMA is the solvent in the formula of this product. It may cause adverse reactions such as liver toxicity (manifested as increased transaminase SGOT) and nervous system toxicity (manifested as hallucinations). Hallucinations often occur one day after the completion of the DMA dosing plan and are accompanied by EEG changes. Other neurotoxicities include drowsiness, sleepiness, and mental confusion. However, it is difficult to determine the relative extent of the effects of DMA and/or other concomitant medications in the liver toxicity and neurotoxicity observed in the use of this product.
