Pfizer’s BOSULIF® (bosutinib) Receives Conditional Marketing Authorization From The European Commission

Stocks in this article: PFE

Drug Interactions: Avoid concurrent use with strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitors or inducers.

Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs): Consider using short-acting antacids or H2 blockers instead of PPIs. Separate antacid or H2 blocker dosing and BOSULIF dosing by more than 2 hours.

Substrates of P-glycoprotein: BOSULIF may increase the plasma concentrations of drugs that are P-gp substrates, such as digoxin.

Nursing Mothers: Given the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or BOSULIF.

Hepatic Impairment: Treat with a dose of 200 mg daily in patients with any baseline hepatic impairment.
