    Dosage

    The recommended starting dose of Bortezomib is 1.3 mg/m2. Bortezomib may be administered intravenously at a concentration of 1 mg/mL, or subcutaneously at a concentration of 2.5 mg/mL. Please refer to the physician prescribing information for reconstitution/preparation for intravenous and subcutaneous administration. When administered intravenously, Bortezomib is administered as a 3 to 5 second bolus intravenous injection.
    Because each route of administration has a different reconstituted concentration, caution should be used when calculating the volume to be administered. Bortezomib 3.5 mg is for intravenous or subcutaneous use only. Bortezomib must not be administered by any other route. Intrathecal administration has resulted in death.


    Indications

Bortezomib in combination with rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and prednisone is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with previously untreated mantle cell lymphoma who are unsuitable for haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
