Abstract

Antifungal prophylaxis in cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy is associated with prolonged neutropenia. We measured the effect of fluconazole on doxorubicin pharmacokinetics in nonhuman primates to determine if neutropenia is related to a pharmacokinetic interaction that delays the clearance of the chemotherapeutic agent. Fluconazole pretreatment had no effect on doxorubicin pharmacokinetics.
