CANCIDAS (caspofungin acetate) is 1-[(4,5)-5-[(2-aminoethyl)amino]--(10,12-dimethyl-1-oxotetradecyl)-4-hydroxy-L-ornithine]-5-[(3)-3-hydroxy-L-ornithine] pneumocandin B diacetate (salt). CANCIDAS 50 mg contains 50 mg of caspofungin equivalent to 55.5 mg of caspofungin acetate. CANCIDAS 50 mg also contains: 39 mg sucrose, 26 mg mannitol, glacial acetic acid, and sodium hydroxide. CANCIDAS 70 mg contains 70 mg of caspofungin equivalent to 77.7 mg of caspofungin acetate. CANCIDAS 70 mg also contains 54 mg sucrose, 36 mg mannitol, glacial acetic acid, and sodium hydroxide. Caspofungin acetate is a hygroscopic, white to off-white powder. It is freely soluble in water and methanol, and slightly soluble in ethanol. The pH of a saturated aqueous solution of caspofungin acetate is approximately 6.6. The empirical formula is CHNO∙2CHOand the formula weight is 1213.42. The structural formula is:

In 6 healthy subjects who received a single 210-mg dose, no significant adverse reactions were reported. Multiple doses above 150 mg daily have not been studied. Caspofungin is not dialyzable.

In clinical trials, one pediatric patient (16 years of age) unintentionally received a single dose of caspofungin of 113 mg (on Day 1), followed by 80 mg daily for an additional 7 days. No clinically significant adverse reactions were reported.

Drugs that reduce metformin clearance

In healthy volunteers, the pharmacokinetics of metformin and propranolol, and metformin and ibuprofen were not affected when coadministered in single-dose interaction studies.

Metformin is negligibly bound to plasma proteins and is, therefore, less likely to interact with highly protein-bound drugs such as salicylates, sulfonamides, chloramphenicol, and probenecid, as compared to the sulfonylureas, which are extensively bound to serum proteins.

Other

Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors

Alcohol

Anaphylaxis and other hypersensitivity reactions have been reported during administration of CANCIDAS.

Possible histamine-mediated adverse reactions, including rash, facial swelling, angioedema, pruritus, sensation of warmth or bronchospasm have been reported.

Cases of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), some with a fatal outcome, have been reported with use of CANCIDAS .

Discontinue CANCIDAS at the first sign or symptom of a hypersensitivity reaction and administer appropriate treatment.
