Cosmegen Drug Description
COSMEGEN® FOR INJECTION
(dactinomycin) for Injection
(Actinomycin D)

WARNING
COSMEGEN® (Dactinomycin for Injection) should be administered only under the supervision of a physician who is experienced in the use of cancer chemotherapeutic agents.
This drug is HIGHLY TOXIC and both powder and solution must be handled
and administered with care. Inhalation of dust or vapors and contact with skin
or mucous membranes, especially those of the eyes, must be avoided. Avoid exposure
during pregnancy. Due to the toxic properties of dactinomycin (e.g., corrosivity,
carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, teratogenicity), special handling procedures
should be reviewed prior to handling and followed diligently. Dactinomycin is
extremely corrosive to soft tissue. If extravasation occurs during intravenous
use, severe damage to soft tissues will occur. In at least one instance, this
has led to contracture of the arms.

Dactinomycin is one of the actinomycins, a group of antibiotics produced by
various species of Streptomyces. Dactinomycin is the principal component
of the mixture of actinomycins produced by Streptomyces parvullus. Unlike
other species of Streptomyces, this organism yields an essentially pure
substance that contains only traces of similar compounds differing in the amino
acid content of the peptide side chains. The empirical formula is C62H86N12O16
and the structural formula is:








COSMEGEN is a sterile, yellow to orange lyophilized powder for injection by the intravenous route or by regional perfusion after reconstitution. Each vial contains 0.5 mg (500 mcg) of dactinomycin and 20.0 mg of mannitol.
