    Average Cost:

    4 mg.dose $713.65

    Trade Name:

    Zometa®

    (Novartis)

    FDA approval:

    2001 - hypercalcemia of malignancy

    2002 - bone metastases indication

    For hypercalcemia of malignancy and the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma and patients with documented bone metastases from solid tumors, in conjunction with standard anti-cancer therapy.

    Prostate cancer patients should have failed to benefit from continuing treatment with at least one hormonal therapy.

    * 4 mg by single-dose intravenous infusion over no less than 15 minutes

    It is necessary to have a test of kidney function before each infusion of Zometa® since it has not been established that Zometa® can be safely administered if kidney function is not normal.
