A Route of administration in pharmacology and toxicology is the path by which a drug, fluid, poison, or other substance is taken into the body. Routes of administration are generally classified by the location at which the substance is applied. Common examples include oral and intravenous administration.

Dosing of Medicine differ in Adult & Pediatrics ↓

Adult Dose

S.No Ailment   Route   Dose Min   Dose Max   Unit   Dosage Form   Frequency   Additional Info
1 Antineoplastic IV Injection Care should be taken to avoid extravasation and the intravenous injection may be given over 1 minute into a freely-running infusion of sodium chloride 0.9% if preferred. The usual dose of vinblastine sulfate is about 6 mg/m2, not more than once every 7 days. Single doses starting at 3.7 mg/m2 and increasing at weekly intervals, over 4 weeks, to a usual maximum dose of 11.1 mg/m2 have been given; doses have been increased above this, but should not exceed 18.5 mg/m2. If a maintenance dose is required, it may be given every 7 days provided white cell counts permit.

►  Drug Interaction : Drug interaction of Vinblastine suphate is with Phenytoin
Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 868   Edition : 37.  


  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Use with drugs that inhibit cytochromes of the CYP3A subfamily may result in decreased metabolism of vinblastine and increased toxicity. Use with cisplatin has been reported to increase vinblastin plasma concentration. For a report of the possible contribution of vinblastine to reduced plasma concentrations of phenytoin.

►  Contraindication : Intrathecal use of the vinca alkaloids is contra-indicated because of the likelihood of fatal neurotoxicity, It should not be injected into an extremity with impaired circulation because of an increased risk of thrombosis. It should be given with caution and at reduced dosage to patients with hepatic impairment
Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 868   Edition : 37.  
  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Vinblastine sulfate is an antineoplastic agent that apparently acts by binding to the microtubular proteins of the spindle and arresting mitosis at the metaphase; it is thus specific for the M phase of the cell cycle. It also interferes with glutamate metabolism and possibly nucleic acid synthesis, and has some immunosuppressant activity.
