FDA Approves NextSource`s Brain Tumor Treatment
This is an old drug - CCNU - but a new capsule size was just approved by the FDA. It is commonly used in combination with Avastin. The standard dose is 130mg/m2 which for a 200 pound 6' tall person works out to about 275 mg... They already had capsules of 100mg, 40 mg and 10mg. SO I guess this allows for finer control of the dose - however, some insurance companies charge a copay on each capsule size.
