  • added ..... Other exfoliative conditions have also been reported

7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

8.7  Renal Impairment
  • Reduce the Clolar starting dose by 50% in patients with CrCL of 30 to 60 mL/min. There is insufficient information to make a dosage recommendation in patients with CrCL less than 30 mL/min or in patients on dialysis. The pharmacokinetics of clofarabine in patients with renal impairment and normal renal function were obtained from a population pharmacokinetic analysis of three pediatric and two adult studies. In patients with CrCL 60 to less than 90 mL/min (N = 47) and CrCL 30 to less than 60 mL/min (N = 30), the average AUC of clofarabine increased by 60% and 140%, respectively, compared to patients with  normal (N = 66) renal function (CrCL greater than 90 mL/min).
8.8  Hepatic Impairment
  • Clolar has not been studied in patients with hepatic impairment.
