Vincristine dosing, drug exposure and therapeutic drug monitoring in neonate and infant cancer patients

The anticancer drug vincristine is associated with potentially dose-limiting side-effects, including neurotoxicity and myelosuppression. However, there currently exists a lack of published clinical pharmacology data relating to its use in neonate and infant patients. We report a study investigating vincristine dosing and drug exposure, alongside the feasibility and impact of a therapeutic drug monitoring treatment approach, in this challenging patient population.
