INDICATIONS AND USAGE

PEMAZYRE is a prescription medicine that is used to treat adults with bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) that has spread or cannot be removed by surgery:

  • who have already received a previous treatment, and
  • whose tumor has a certain type of abnormal "FGFR2” gene

Your healthcare provider will test your cancer for a certain type of abnormal FGFR2 gene and make sure that PEMAZYRE is right for you.

It is not known if PEMAZYRE is safe and effective in children.

PEMAZYRE is approved based on tumor response and duration of response. There are ongoing studies to show whether PEMAZYRE can improve survival or symptoms.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Before you take PEMAZYRE, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • have vision or eye problems
  • have kidney problems
  • have liver problems
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. PEMAZYRE can harm your unborn baby or cause loss of your pregnancy (miscarriage). You should not become pregnant during treatment with PEMAZYRE.

    Females who can become pregnant:

    • Your healthcare provider should do a pregnancy test before you start treatment with PEMAZYRE.
    • You should use an effective method of birth control during treatment and for 1 week after your final dose of PEMAZYRE. Talk to your healthcare provider about birth control methods that may be right for you.

What are the possible side effects of PEMAZYRE?

PEMAZYRE may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Eye problems. Certain eye problems are common with PEMAZYRE but can also be serious. Eye problems include dry eye or inflamed eyes, inflamed cornea (front part of the eye), increased tears, and a disorder of the retina (an internal part of the eye). You will need to see an eye specialist for a complete eye exam before you begin treatment with PEMAZYRE, every 2 months for the first 6 months, and then every 3 months during treatment with PEMAZYRE.

High levels of phosphate in your blood may lead to buildup of minerals such as calcium, in different tissues in your body. Your healthcare provider will check your blood phosphate levels during treatment with PEMAZYRE.
