Indications for NINLARO:

In combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least 1 prior therapy.


Swallow whole. Take ≥1hr before or ≥2hrs after food. Initially 4mg once weekly on Days 1, 8, and 15 of a 28-day cycle; continue until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Give with lenalidomide 25mg daily on Days 1–21 and dexamethasone 40mg on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Moderate or severe hepatic impairment, severe renal impairment, or ESRD on dialysis: initially 3mg. Prior to new cycle, ensure ANC ≥1,000/mm3, platelets ≥75,000/mm3, recovery of non-hematologic toxicities to baseline or Grade ≤1. Consider antiviral prophylaxis to decrease risk of herpes zoster reactivation. Dose modifications: see full labeling.


Not established.


Thrombocytopenia: monitor platelets at least monthly during treatment; consider more frequently for first 3 cycles. Adjust dose for Grade 3/4 GI symptoms or Grade ≥2 rash. Monitor for peripheral neuropathy; adjust dose if worsens. Adjust dosing of dexamethasone or ixazomib if Grade 3/4 peripheral edema symptoms occur. Thrombotic microangiopathy (including TTP/HUS). Hepatic impairment; monitor enzymes regularly and adjust for Grade 3/4 symptoms. Severe renal impairment or ESRD. Embryo-fetal toxicity. Pregnancy: avoid. Advise males and females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during therapy and for 90 days after final dose. Females using hormonal contraceptives should also use a barrier method. Nursing mothers: not recommended (during and for 90 days after final dose).
