Vincasar PFS Drug Description
Vincasar PFS® vincristine sulfate injection, USP

WARNINGS VINCASAR PFS Injection should be administered by individuals experienced in the administration of vincristine sulfate. Caution - It is extremely important that the intravenous needle or catheter be properly positioned before any vincristine is injected. Leakage into surrounding tissue during intravenous administration of VINCASAR PFS may cause considerable irritation. If extravasation occurs, the injection should be discontinued immediately, and any remaining portion of the dose should then be introduced into another vein. Local injection of hyaluronidase and the application of moderate heat to the area of leakage help disperse the drug and are thought to minimize discomfort and the possibility of cellulitis. FATAL IF GIVEN INTRATHECALLY. FOR INTRAVENOUS USE ONLY. See WARNINGS section for the treatment of patients given intrathecal VINCASAR PFS.

Originally known as leurocristine, it has also been referred to as LCR and VCR. Vincristine sulfate is a white to slightly yellow, amorphous powder.

Each mL contains vincristine sulfate, 1 mg (1.08 mmoL); mannitol, 100 mg; water for injection, q.s. Acetic acid and sodium acetate have been added for pH control. The pH of VINCASAR PFS ranges from 3.5 to 5.5. This product is a sterile solution for cancer/oncolytic use.Last reviewed on RxList: 12/8/2004
