Appropriate management of therapy and complications is possible only when adequate treatment facilities are readily available.
Severe myelosuppression with resulting infection or bleeding may occur. Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis-like symptoms, may occur with initial dosing or at repeated exposure to VUMON. Epinephrine, with or without corticosteroids and antihistamines, has been employed to alleviate hypersensitivity reaction symptoms.

VUMON® (teniposide injection) (also commonly known as VM-26), is supplied as a sterile nonpyrogenic solution in a nonaqueous medium intended for dilution with a suitable parenteral vehicle prior to intravenous infusion. VUMON is available in 50 mg (5 mL) ampules. Each mL contains 10 mg teniposide, 30 mg benzyl alcohol, 60 mg N,N-dimethylacetamide, 500 mg purified Cremophor® EL (polyoxyethylated castor oil)*, and 42.7% (v/v) dehydrated alcohol. The pH of the clear solution is adjusted to approximately 5 with maleic acid.
Teniposide is a semisynthetic derivative of podophyllotoxin. The chemical name for teniposide is 4′-demethylepipodophyllotoxin 9-[4,6-0-(R)-2-thenylidene-β-D-glucopyranoside]. Teniposide differs from etoposide, another podophyllotoxin derivative, by the substitution of a thenylidene group on the glucopyranoside ring.
Teniposide has the following structural formula:








Teniposide is a white to off-white crystalline powder with the empirical formula
C32H32O13S and a molecular weight of 656.66.
It is a lipophilic compound with a partition coefficient value (octanol/water)
of approximately 100. Teniposide is insoluble in water and ether. It is slightly
soluble in methanol and very soluble in acetone and dimethylformamide.
*Cremophor® EL is the registered trademark of BASF Aktiengesellschaft.
Cremophor® EL is further purified by a Bristol-Myers Squibb Company proprietary process before use.Last reviewed on RxList: 6/29/2009
