            Black Box Warnings

            Can prolong the QT interval

            Torsades de pointes and sudden death have been reported

            Should not be used in patients with hypocalcemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, or long QT syndrome

            Hypocalcemia, hypokalemia, and/or hypomagnesemia must be corrected prior to administration and should be periodically monitored

            Drugs known to prolong QT interval should be avoided

            If a drug known to prolong the QT interval must be administered, more frequent ECG monitoring is recommended

            Given the half-life of 19 days, ECGs should be obtained to monitor the QT at baseline, at 2-4 weeks and 8-12 weeks after starting treatment with vandetanib and every 3 months thereafter

            Following any dose reduction for QT prolongation, or any dose interruptions greater than 2 weeks, QT assessment should be conducted as described above

            Because of the 19-day half-life, adverse reactions including a prolonged QT interval may not resolve quickly

            Monitor appropriately

            Because of risks of QT prolongation, Torsades de pointes, and sudden death, therapy available only through restricted distribution program called the CAPRELSA REMS Program. 1-800-236-9933 or visit www.caprelsarems.com

            Congenital long QT syndrome

            Cautions

            Use in patients with indolent, asymptomatic, or slowly progressing disease should be carefully considered because of the treatment related risks

            Prolonged QT Interval, Torsades de pointes, and sudden death have been reported

            Obtain ECG, serum potassium, calcium, magnesium, and TSH at baseline, then 2-4 and 8-12 weeks after treatment initiation, then q3months for at least a year thereafter; reduce dose as appropriate

            Potent CYP3A4 inducers reduce exposure to vandetanib by up to 40%; however, no clinically significant effect on exposure to vandetanib was observed in the presence of the potent CYP3A4 inhibitors

            Fatal skin reactions, including Stevens-Johnson syndrome and severe toxic epidermal necrolysis reported; systemic therapies such as corticosteroids may be required; permanently discontinue therapy for severe skin reactions

            Interstitial lung disease (ILD), resulting in death has been reported; interrupt vandetanib and investigate unexplained dyspnea, cough, and fever; appropriate measures should be taken for ILD

            Ischemic cerebrovascular events, hemorrhage, heart failure, diarrhea, hypothyroidism, hypertension, and reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome, have been observed

            Can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women; avoid pregnancy while receiving vandetanib and for 4 months following treatment

            Serious hemorrhagic events, some fatal, have been observed; do not administer with recent history of hemoptysis and discontinue if severe hemorrhage occurs

            Heart failure observed, including some fatal cases; may be necessary to discontinue vandetanib; heart failure may not be reversible

            Diarrhea is common and routine antidiarrheal agents are recommended to avoid electrolyte disturbances that may exacerbate risk of QT prolongation

            Hypothyroidism: 90% of patients enrolled in clinical trials had prior thyroidectomy, 49% of patients randomized to vandetanib required increased thyroid doses compared with 17% of patients in the placebo arm

            Hypertension, including hypertensive crisis may occur

            The most common laboratory abnormalities (>20%) were decreased calcium, increased ALT, and decreased glucose

            Hypersensitivity including anaphylaxis has been reported

            Wound healing

            • Impaired wound healing can occur in patients who receive drugs that inhibit the VEGF signaling pathway
            • Therapy has potential to adversely affect wound healing; withhold therapy for at least 1 month prior to elective surgery
            • Do not administer therapy for at least 2 weeks following major surgery and until adequate wound healing

            Reproductive potential

            • Therapy can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman; advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment and for 4 months after final dose
            • There are no data on effect on human fertility; results from animal studies indicate that therapy can impair male and female fertility

            Lactation

            There are no data on presence of drug or its metabolites in human milk or effects on breastfed child or on milk production; drug was present in milk of lactating rats; because of potential for serious adverse reactions from drug in breastfed children, advise women not to breastfeed during therapy and for 4 months after final dose

            Animal data

            • In nonclinical studies, drug was excreted in rat milk and found in plasma of pups following dosing to lactating rats; drug transfer in breast milk resulted in relatively constant exposure in pups due to long half-life of drug

            Pregnancy Categories

            A: Generally acceptable. Controlled studies in pregnant women show no evidence of fetal risk.

            B: May be acceptable. Either animal studies show no risk but human studies not available or animal studies showed minor risks and human studies done and showed no risk.

            C: Use with caution if benefits outweigh risks. Animal studies show risk and human studies not available or neither animal nor human studies done.

            D: Use in LIFE-THREATENING emergencies when no safer drug available. Positive evidence of human fetal risk.

            X: Do not use in pregnancy. Risks involved outweigh potential benefits. Safer alternatives exist.

            VANDETANIB - ORAL

            (van-DET-a-nib)

            COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Caprelsa

            WARNING: Vandetanib may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting). Get medical help right away if you have any of these symptoms.The risk of QT prolongation may be increased if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other drugs that may affect the heart rhythm (see also Drug Interactions). Do not use vandetanib if you have a certain heart problem (long QT syndrome). Before using vandetanib, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all the drugs you take and if you have any of the following conditions: certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation/long QT syndrome), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation/long QT syndrome, sudden cardiac death).Vandetanib should not be used in people with low levels of calcium, potassium, or magnesium in the blood. Low levels of these minerals may also increase your risk of QT prolongation. This risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/"water pills") or if you have conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting.To lower your risk, your doctor will check your mineral levels with a blood test and your heart with a test (EKG) before and periodically during treatment. Low mineral levels should be corrected before you start treatment. If you develop QT prolongation, your doctor may stop treatment for a while and restart it at a lower dose, and check your EKG again.Since vandetanib stays in your body for a long time, it may take a while for side effects such as QT prolongation to go away after you stop taking it. Discuss the risks and benefits of treatment with your doctor.This medication is only available through a restricted program from certified prescribers and pharmacies called the Vandetanib REMS Program. These requirements apply in the United States. If you live in Canada or any other country, consult your doctor and pharmacist for your country's regulations.

            USES: This medication is used to treat thyroid cancer (medullary type). It works by slowing or stopping the growth of cancer cells. Vandetanib belongs to a class of drugs known as tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
