Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

No Image found
Clinical Pharmacology

VORAXAZE (glucarpidase) is a recombinant bacterial enzyme that hydrolyzes the carboxyl-terminal glutamate residue from folic acid and classical antifolates such as methotrexate. VORAXAZE converts methotrexate to its inactive metabolites 4-deoxy-4-amino-N-methylpteroic acid (DAMPA) and glutamate. VORAXAZE provides an alternative non-renal pathway for methotrexate elimination in patients with renal dysfunction during high-dose methotrexate treatment.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
None

The concurrent use of glycopyrrolate injection with other anticholinergics or medications with anticholinergic activity, such as phenothiazines, antiparkinson drugs, or tricyclic antidepressants, may intensify the antimuscarinic effects and may result in an increase in anticholinergic side effects.

Concomitant administration of glycopyrrolate injection and potassium chloride in a wax matrix may increase the severity of potassium chloride-induced gastrointestinal lesions as a result of a slower gastrointestinal transit time.

Serious allergic reactions occurred in less than 1% of patients [].

Serious allergic reactions, including anaphylactic reactions, may occur. The most common adverse reactions (incidence >1%) with VORAXAZE are paraesthesias, flushing, nausea and/or vomiting, hypotension, and headache.
