2.5 Dosage Modifications for Moderate and Severe Hepatic Impairment

Adult Patients with ALK- or ROS1-positive Metastatic NSCLC or with ALK-positive IMT

The recommended dose of XALKORI in patients with moderate hepatic impairment [any aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and total bilirubin greater than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) and less than or equal to 3 times ULN] is 200 mg orally twice daily.

The recommended dose of XALKORI in patients with severe hepatic impairment (any AST and total bilirubin greater than 3 times ULN) is 250 mg orally once daily [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Pediatric and Young Adult Patients with ALK-positive ALCL or Pediatric Patients with ALK-positive IMT

The recommended dose of XALKORI in patients with moderate hepatic impairment [any aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and total bilirubin greater than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) and less than or equal to 3 times ULN] is the first dose reduction based on BSA as shown in Table 3 [see Dosage and Administration (2.5) , Use in Specific Populations (8.6) , Clinical Pharmacology (12.3) ] .

The recommended dose of XALKORI in patients with severe hepatic impairment (any AST and total bilirubin greater than 3 times ULN) is the second dose reduction based on BSA as shown in Table 3 [see Dosage and Administration (2.5) , Use in Specific Populations (8.6) , Clinical Pharmacology (12.3) ] .

2.6 Dosage Modification for Severe Renal Impairment

Adult Patients with ALK- or ROS1-positive Metastatic NSCLC or with ALK-positive IMT

The recommended dosage of XALKORI in patients with severe renal impairment [creatinine clearance (CLcr ) less than 30 mL/min, calculated using the modified Cockcroft-Gault equation] not requiring dialysis is 250 mg orally once daily [see Use in Specific Populations (8.7), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

Pediatric and Young Adult Patients with ALK-positive ALCL or Pediatric Patients with ALK-positive IMT

The recommended dosage of XALKORI in patients with severe renal impairment (CLcr ) less than 30 mL/min, calculated using the modified Cockcroft-Gault equation for adult patients and the Schwartz equation for pediatric patients not requiring dialysis is the second dose reduction based on BSA as shown in Table 3 [see Dosage and Administration (2.6) , Use in Specific Populations (8.7) , Clinical Pharmacology (12.3) ] .

2.7 Dosage Modification for Concomitant Use of Strong CYP3A Inhibitors

Adult Patients with ALK- or ROS1-positive metastatic NSCLC or with ALK-positive IMT

Avoid concomitant use of strong CYP3A inhibitors. If concomitant use of strong CYP3A inhibitors is unavoidable, reduce the dose of XALKORI to 250 mg orally once daily [see Drug Interactions (7.1)]. After discontinuation of a strong CYP3A inhibitor, resume the XALKORI dose used prior to initiating the strong CYP3A inhibitor.

Pediatric and Young Adult Patients with ALK-positive ALCL or Pediatric Patients with ALK-positive IMT

Avoid concomitant use of strong CYP3A inhibitors. If concomitant use of strong CYP3A inhibitors is unavoidable, reduce the dose of XALKORI to the second dose reduction based on BSA as shown in Table 3 [see Dosage and Administration (2.4) , Drug Interactions (7.1) ] . After discontinuation of a strong CYP3A inhibitor, resume the XALKORI dose used prior to initiating the strong CYP3A inhibitor.

5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

5.1 Hepatotoxicity

Drug-induced hepatotoxicity with fatal outcome occurred in 0.1% of the 1719 patients treated with XALKORI for NSCLC across clinical trials [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)]. Concurrent elevations in ALT or AST ≥3 times the ULN and total bilirubin ≥2 times the ULN, with normal alkaline phosphatase, occurred in <1% of patients treated with XALKORI. Increased ALT or AST >5 times the ULN occurred in 11% and 6% of patients, respectively. One percent (1.0%) of patients required permanent discontinuation due to elevated transaminases. Increased transaminases generally occurred within the first 2 months of treatment.

In Study ADVL0912, of 121 patients ages 1 to ≤21 years treated with XALKORI for relapsed or refractory tumors including ALCL and IMT, 71% and 79% had increases of AST and ALT, respectively, with increased ALT or AST >5 times the ULN in 6% each. Of the 26 patients with ALCL treated with XALKORI, 65% and 81% had increases of AST and ALT, respectively, with increases >5 times the ULN in 4% each. Of the 14 pediatric patients with IMT treated with XALKORI, 71% had increases of AST and 71% had increases of ALT.

In Study A8081013, of the 7 adult patients with IMT treated with XALKORI, 57% and 43% had increases of AST and ALT, respectively.

Monitor liver function tests, including ALT, AST, and total bilirubin, every 2 weeks during the first 2 months of treatment, then once a month, and as clinically indicated, with more frequent repeat testing for increased liver transaminases, alkaline phosphatase, or total bilirubin in patients who develop increased transaminases. Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue XALKORI for hepatotoxicity as recommended [see Dosage and Administration (2.4)].

5.2 Interstitial Lung Disease/Pneumonitis

Severe, life-threatening, or fatal interstitial lung disease (ILD)/pneumonitis can occur in patients treated with XALKORI. Across clinical trials in patients with NSCLC (n=1719), 2.9% of XALKORI-treated patients had ILD of any grade, 1% had Grade 3 or 4 ILD, and 0.5% had fatal ILD [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)]. Interstitial lung disease generally occurred within 3 months after the initiation of XALKORI.

In Study ADVL0912, among 121 patients ages 1 to ≤21 years with relapsed or refractory tumors, including ALCL and IMT, ILD occurred in 0.8% of patients.

Monitor patients for pulmonary symptoms indicative of ILD/pneumonitis. Exclude other potential causes of ILD/pneumonitis, and permanently discontinue XALKORI in patients diagnosed with drug-related ILD/pneumonitis [see Dosage and Administration (2.4) ] .
