Monitor CBC for cytopenia at baseline and monthly thereafter; do not start therapy until recovery from hematological toxicity due to previous chemotherapy (CTCAE Grade ≤1). Discontinue if myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid leukemia (MDS/AML) is confirmed. Interrupt therapy and evaluate if new or worsening respiratory symptoms occur; discontinue and treat if pneumonitis is confirmed. Mild renal impairment: monitor closely. Moderate or severe hepatic impairment, severe renal impairment or ESRD (CrCl ≤30mL/min): not studied. Embryo-fetal toxicity. Pregnancy; avoid. Obtain pregnancy testing prior to initiating therapy. Females of reproductive potential should use effective contraception during therapy and for 6 months after last dose. Nursing mothers: not recommended (during and for 1 month after last dose).
