BESPONSA

In this article, we will discuss BESPONSA (Dosage Overview). So, let’s get started.

Indications

BESPONSA is indicated for the treatment of adults with relapsed or refractory B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Dosage

Recommended Dosage
• Pre-medicate before each dose.
• For the first cycle, the recommended total dose of BESPONSA for all patients is 1.8 mg/m² per cycle, administered as 3 divided doses on Day 1 (0.8 mg/m²), Day 8 (0.5 mg/m²), and Day 15 (0.5 mg/m²). Cycle 1 is 3 weeks in duration, but may be extended to 4 weeks if the patient achieves a complete remission (CR) or complete remission with incomplete hematologic recovery (CRi), and/or to allow recovery from toxicity.

For subsequent cycles:
• In patients who achieve a CR or CRi, the recommended total dose of BESPONSA is 1.5 mg/m² per cycle, administered as 3 divided doses on Day 1 (0.5 mg/m²), Day 8 (0.5 mg/m²), and Day 15 (0.5 mg/m²). Subsequent cycles are 4 weeks in duration.
OR
• In patients who do not achieve a CR or CRi, the recommended total dose of BESPONSA is
1.8 mg/m2 per cycle given as 3 divided doses on Day 1 (0.8 mg/m²), Day 8 (0.5 mg/m²), and
Day 15 (0.5 mg/m²). Subsequent cycles are 4 weeks in duration. Patients who do not achieve a CR or CRi within 3 cycles should discontinue treatment.
• For patients proceeding to hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT), the recommended duration of treatment with BESPONSA is 2 cycles. A third cycle may be considered for those patients who do not achieve CR or CRi and minimal residual disease (MRD) negativity after 2 cycles.
• For patients not proceeding to HSCT, additional cycles of treatment, up to a maximum of 6 cycles, may be administered.
