Recommended Dosage

The recommended dosage of Defibrotide Sodium for adult and pediatric patients is 6.25 mg/kg every 6 hours given as a 2-hour intravenous infusion. The dose should be based on patient’s baseline body weight, defined as the patient’s weight prior to the preparative regimen for HSCT.
