Research Program Expanded Based on Promising Data Shown with KEYTRUDA®
(pembrolizumab) in Combination with LYNPARZA
®
(olaparib), Chemotherapy and Anti-Hormone Agents in Patients with
Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC)

Data from Three Cohorts of Phase 1b/2 KEYNOTE-365 Study to Be
Presented Today at the 2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU)

KENILWORTH, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada,
today announced the presentation of interim data from the Phase 1b/2
KEYNOTE-365 umbrella trial investigating KEYTRUDA, Merck’s anti-PD-1
therapy, in combination with various agents for the treatment of
patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).
These early findings show anti-tumor activity across three cohorts of
the study, which investigated KEYTRUDA in combination with LYNPARZA
(Cohort A, Abstract #145); docetaxel and prednisone (Cohort B, Abstract
#170); and enzalutamide (Cohort C, Abstract #171) – with a safety
profile consistent with each therapy alone. These results are being
presented today at the 2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GU) in
San Francisco. Based on the findings, Merck is initiating three new
pivotal Phase 3 trials with KEYTRUDA in combination with LYNPARZA
(KEYLYNK-010, NCT03834519), docetaxel and prednisone (KEYNOTE-921,
NCT03834506) and enzalutamide (KEYNOTE-641, NCT03834493).

“At the core of our research program is a commitment to investigate the
potential of KEYTRUDA – both as combination and monotherapy – to serve
as a foundational treatment, especially for cancers where additional
therapies are needed,” said Dr. Roy Baynes, senior vice president, head
of global clinical development, and chief medical officer, Merck
Research Laboratories. “These promising data presented at ASCO GU
coupled with the significant unmet medical need in patients with
metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, propelled us to
initiate three new Phase 3 trials to further evaluate these KEYTRUDA
combination regimens.”

Merck’s existing clinical development program in metastatic prostate
cancer includes studies evaluating KEYTRUDA and LYNPARZA as monotherapy
and in combination with other anti-cancer therapies with various
mechanisms of action. Ongoing trials include the Phase 2 KEYNOTE-199
trial for KEYTRUDA monotherapy and, in collaboration with AstraZeneca,
the Phase 3 trials PROfound evaluating LYNPARZA monotherapy and PROPEL
evaluating LYNPARZA in combination with abiraterone as a first-line
therapy in patients with mCRPC. With the initiation of KEYLYNK-010,
KEYNOTE-921 and KEYNOTE-641, Merck now has the largest clinical program
with an anti-PD-1 therapy in prostate cancer and the only program to
evaluate overall survival (OS) as a co-primary endpoint across three
Phase 3 trials.

Data from KEYNOTE-365 Presented at ASCO GU

KEYNOTE-365 (NCT02861573) is an ongoing global, open-label,
non-randomized, multi-cohort, multi-center, Phase 1b/2 study evaluating
the safety and efficacy of KEYTRUDA (200 mg fixed dose every three
weeks) in combination with LYNPARZA (Cohort A), docetaxel and prednisone
(Cohort B) and enzalutamide (Cohort C) for the treatment of patients
with mCRPC. The primary endpoints are safety, prostatic specific antigen
(PSA) response rate (measured by confirmed decrease in PSA of 50% or
greater) and overall response rate (ORR) as determined by Response
Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1; secondary endpoints
include disease control rate (DCR), radiographic progression-free
survival (rPFS) and OS. The study is designed to enroll 400 patients
across four cohorts, with outcome measures assessed individually for
each cohort. Data at ASCO GU include interim efficacy and safety
findings from three of the study cohorts (A, B and C).

Data and Safety from Cohort A (Abstract #145)

Cohort A is reported on 41 enrolled patients previously treated with
docetaxel, and up to one other chemotherapy and up to two
second-generation anti-hormone therapies. Patients in Cohort A received
KEYTRUDA in combination with LYNPARZA (400 mg capsules orally twice
daily).

The efficacy analysis from Cohort A presented at ASCO GU showed a PSA
response rate of 12 percent in the total cohort population (n=5/41), 14
percent among patients with measurable disease (n=4/28) and 8 percent
(n=1/13) among patients with non-measurable disease. The median time to
PSA progression was 15.3 (95% CI, 9.3-27.1) and 18.1 (95% CI, 9.3-21.0)
weeks for patients with measurable and non-measurable disease,
respectively. Among patients with measurable disease, the ORR was 7
percent (95% CI, 1-23), with a partial response rate of 7 percent
(n=2/28). The disease control rate (of 6 months or more) was 29 percent
(95% CI, 16-45) in the total cohort population, 32 percent (95% CI,
16-52) among patients with measurable disease and 23 percent (95% CI,
5-54) among patients with non-measurable disease. In an analysis of rPFS
and OS endpoints, the median rPFS was 4.7 months (95% CI, 4.0-7.7) and
the six-month rPFS rate was 48 percent; the median OS was 13.5 months at
the time of analysis (95% CI, 7.7-NR) and the six-month OS rate was 73
percent.

Analysis of the safety data showed that 49 percent of patients had a
grade 3 or 4 treatment-related adverse event (TRAE), the most common
(occurring in ?10% of patients) of which was anemia (27%).
Immune-mediated adverse events observed in this cohort were grade 1 or 2
and occurred in 49 percent of patients; the most commonly reported
immune-mediated adverse event was hypothyroidism (5%). One patient died
of a TRAE of unknown cause.

Data and Safety from Cohort B (Abstract #170)

Cohort B is reported on 72 enrolled patients previously treated with
either abiraterone acetate or enzalutamide and who had not received
chemotherapy. Patients in Cohort B received KEYTRUDA in combination with
docetaxel (75 mg) plus prednisone (5 mg) orally twice daily.

The efficacy analysis from Cohort B presented at ASCO GU showed a PSA
response rate of 31 percent in the total cohort population (n=22/72), 22
percent among patients with measurable disease (n=8/36) and 39 percent
among patients with non-measurable disease (n=14/36). The median time to
PSA progression was 24.1 (95% CI, 15.1-30) and 30.4 (95% CI, 15.0-36.3)
weeks for patients with measurable and non-measurable disease,
respectively. Among patients with measurable disease, the ORR was 14
percent (95% CI, 5-29), with a partial response rate of 14 percent
(n=5/36). The disease control rate (of 6 months or more) was 57 percent
(95% CI, 45-69) in the total cohort population, 50 percent (95% CI,
33-67) among patients with measurable disease and 64 percent (95% CI,
46-79) among patients with non-measurable disease. The median duration
of response was 4.9 months (95% CI, 4.0-8.3+). In an analysis of rPFS
and OS endpoints, the median rPFS was 8.3 months (95% CI, 7.5-10.2) and
the six-month rPFS rate was 79 percent; the median OS had not been
reached at the time of analysis (95% CI, 12.9-NR); the six-month OS rate
was 96 percent.

Analysis of the safety data showed that 36 percent of patients had a
grade 3-5 TRAE, the most common (occurring in ?10% of patients) of which
was febrile neutropenia (12%). Immune-mediated adverse events occurred
in 33 percent of patients, the most common (occurring in ? 10% of
patients) of which were infusion-related reactions (11%) and colitis
(10%); two patients died due to TRAEs (pneumonitis).

Data and Safety from Cohort C (Abstract #171)

Cohort C is reported on 69 enrolled patients previously treated with
abiraterone acetate and who had not received chemotherapy. Patients in
Cohort C received KEYTRUDA in combination with enzalutamide (160 mg per
day orally).

The efficacy analysis from Cohort C presented at ASCO GU showed a PSA
response rate of 26 percent in the total population (n=18/69), 40
percent among patients with measurable disease (n=10/25), and 18 percent
among patients with non-measurable disease (n=8/44). The median time to
PSA progression was 18.4 (95% CI, 15.4-48.3) and 12.4 (95% CI,
12.0-15.1) weeks for patients with measurable and non-measurable
disease, respectively. Among patients with measurable disease, the ORR
was 20 percent (95% CI, 7-41), with a complete response of 8 percent
(n=2/25) and partial response of 12 percent (n=3/25). The disease
control rate (of 6 months or more) was 33 percent (95% CI, 22-46) in the
total population, 32 percent (95% CI 15-53) among patients with
measurable disease and 34 percent (95% CI, 20-50) among patients with
non-measurable disease. The median duration of response was 8.3 months
(range, 0.0+-13.0+) – and at the time of analysis, 75 percent of
patients had responses lasting for six months or longer. In an analysis
of rPFS and OS endpoints, the median rPFS was 6.1 months (95% CI,
4.0-8.1); the six-month rPFS rate was 59 percent; the median OS had not
been reached at the time of analysis (95% CI, 12.2-NR); the six-month OS
rate was 91 percent.

Analysis of the safety data showed that 41 percent of patients had a
grade 3 or 4 TRAE, the most common (occurring in ? 10% of patients) of
which was rash (10%). Immune-mediated adverse events occurred in 41
percent of patients, the most common (occurring in ? 10% of patients) of
which were severe skin reactions (20%) and hypothyroidism (13%). No
patients died of TRAEs.

About Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC)

Prostate cancer is typically driven by male sex hormones called
androgens, including testosterone. Castration-resistant prostate cancer
(CRPC) is characterized when the cancer continues to grow despite
surgery or treatment to lower the amount of male sex hormones. When CRPC
spreads to other parts of the body, it is referred to as metastatic
castration-resistant prostate cancer or mCRPC. Prostate cancer is the
second most common cancer in men, with an estimated 1.3 million new
cases diagnosed worldwide in 2018. In the United States, an estimated
174,650 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2019 and one in
nine men will be diagnosed in his lifetime. Approximately 10-20 percent
of men with prostate cancer will develop CRPC within five years; within
two years of a CRPC diagnosis, 33 percent of men will develop mCRPC.

About KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) Injection,
100mg

KEYTRUDA is an anti-PD-1 therapy that works by increasing the ability of
the body’s immune system to help detect and fight tumor cells. KEYTRUDA
is a humanized monoclonal antibody that blocks the interaction between
PD-1 and its ligands, PD-L1 and PD-L2, thereby activating T lymphocytes
which may affect both tumor cells and healthy cells.

Merck has the industry’s largest immuno-oncology clinical research
program. There are currently more than 900 trials studying KEYTRUDA
across a wide variety of cancers and treatment settings. The KEYTRUDA
clinical program seeks to understand the role of KEYTRUDA across cancers
and the factors that may predict a patient’s likelihood of benefitting
from treatment with KEYTRUDA, including exploring several different
biomarkers.

Selected Important Safety Information for KEYTRUDA

Immune-Mediated Pneumonitis

KEYTRUDA can cause immune-mediated pneumonitis, including fatal cases.
Pneumonitis occurred in 3.4% (94/2799) of patients receiving KEYTRUDA,
including Grade 1 (0.8%), 2 (1.3%), 3 (0.9%), 4 (0.3%), and 5 (0.1%),
and occurred more frequently in patients with a history of prior
thoracic radiation (6.9%) compared to those without (2.9%). Monitor
patients for signs and symptoms of pneumonitis. Evaluate suspected
pneumonitis with radiographic imaging. Administer corticosteroids for
Grade 2 or greater pneumonitis. Withhold KEYTRUDA for Grade 2;
permanently discontinue KEYTRUDA for Grade 3 or 4 or recurrent Grade 2
pneumonitis.

Immune-Mediated Colitis

KEYTRUDA can cause immune-mediated colitis. Colitis occurred in 1.7%
(48/2799) of patients receiving KEYTRUDA, including Grade 2 (0.4%), 3
(1.1%), and 4 (<0.1%). Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of
colitis. Administer corticosteroids for Grade 2 or greater colitis.
Withhold KEYTRUDA for Grade 2 or 3; permanently discontinue KEYTRUDA for
Grade 4 colitis.

Immune-Mediated Hepatitis

KEYTRUDA can cause immune-mediated hepatitis. Hepatitis occurred in 0.7%
(19/2799) of patients receiving KEYTRUDA, including Grade 2 (0.1%), 3
(0.4%), and 4 (<0.1%). Monitor patients for changes in liver function.
Administer corticosteroids for Grade 2 or greater hepatitis and, based
on severity of liver enzyme elevations, withhold or discontinue KEYTRUDA.

Immune-Mediated Endocrinopathies

KEYTRUDA can cause hypophysitis, thyroid disorders, and type 1 diabetes
mellitus. Hypophysitis occurred in 0.6% (17/2799) of patients, including
Grade 2 (0.2%), 3 (0.3%), and 4 (<0.1%). Hypothyroidism occurred in 8.5%
(237/2799) of patients, including Grade 2 (6.2%) and 3 (0.1%). The
incidence of new or worsening hypothyroidism was higher in patients with
HNSCC, occurring in 15% (28/192) of patients. Hyperthyroidism occurred
in 3.4% (96/2799) of patients, including Grade 2 (0.8%) and 3 (0.1%),
and thyroiditis occurred in 0.6% (16/2799) of patients, including Grade
2 (0.3%). Type 1 diabetes mellitus, including diabetic ketoacidosis,
occurred in 0.2% (6/2799) of patients.

Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of hypophysitis (including
hypopituitarism and adrenal insufficiency), thyroid function (prior to
and periodically during treatment), and hyperglycemia. For hypophysitis,
administer corticosteroids and hormone replacement as clinically
indicated. Withhold KEYTRUDA for Grade 2 and withhold or discontinue for
Grade 3 or 4 hypophysitis. Administer hormone replacement for
hypothyroidism and manage hyperthyroidism with thionamides and
beta-blockers as appropriate. Withhold or discontinue KEYTRUDA for Grade
3 or 4 hyperthyroidism. Administer insulin for type 1 diabetes, and
withhold KEYTRUDA and administer antihyperglycemics in patients with
severe hyperglycemia.

Immune-Mediated Nephritis and Renal Dysfunction

KEYTRUDA can cause immune-mediated nephritis. Nephritis occurred in 0.3%
(9/2799) of patients receiving KEYTRUDA, including Grade 2 (0.1%), 3
(0.1%), and 4 (<0.1%) nephritis. Nephritis occurred in 1.7% (7/405) of
patients receiving KEYTRUDA in combination with pemetrexed and platinum
chemotherapy. Monitor patients for changes in renal function. Administer
corticosteroids for Grade 2 or greater nephritis. Withhold KEYTRUDA for
Grade 2; permanently discontinue for Grade 3 or 4 nephritis.

Immune-Mediated Skin Reactions

Immune-mediated rashes, including Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), toxic
epidermal necrolysis (TEN) (some cases with fatal outcome), exfoliative
dermatitis, and bullous pemphigoid, can occur. Monitor patients for
suspected severe skin reactions and based on the severity of the adverse
reaction, withhold or permanently discontinue KEYTRUDA and administer
corticosteroids. For signs or symptoms of SJS or TEN, withhold KEYTRUDA
and refer the patient for specialized care for assessment and treatment.
If SJS or TEN is confirmed, permanently discontinue KEYTRUDA.

Other Immune-Mediated Adverse Reactions

Immune-mediated adverse reactions, which may be severe or fatal, can
occur in any organ system or tissue in patients receiving KEYTRUDA and
may also occur after discontinuation of treatment. For suspected
immune-mediated adverse reactions, ensure adequate evaluation to confirm
etiology or exclude other causes. Based on the severity of the adverse
reaction, withhold KEYTRUDA and administer corticosteroids. Upon
improvement to Grade 1 or less, initiate corticosteroid taper and
continue to taper over at least 1 month. Based on limited data from
clinical studies in patients whose immune-related adverse reactions
could not be controlled with corticosteroid use, administration of other
systemic immunosuppressants can be considered. Resume KEYTRUDA when the
adverse reaction remains at Grade 1 or less following corticosteroid
taper. Permanently discontinue KEYTRUDA for any Grade 3 immune-mediated
adverse reaction that recurs and for any life-threatening
immune-mediated adverse reaction.

The following clinically significant immune-mediated adverse reactions
occurred in less than 1% (unless otherwise indicated) of 2799 patients:
arthritis (1.5%), uveitis, myositis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, myasthenia
gravis, vasculitis, pancreatitis, hemolytic anemia, sarcoidosis, and
encephalitis. In addition, myelitis and myocarditis were reported in
other clinical trials and postmarketing use.

Treatment with KEYTRUDA may increase the risk of rejection in solid
organ transplant recipients. Consider the benefit of treatment vs the
risk of possible organ rejection in these patients.

Infusion-Related Reactions

KEYTRUDA can cause severe or life-threatening infusion-related
reactions, including hypersensitivity and anaphylaxis, which have been
reported in 0.2% (6/2799) of patients. Monitor patients for signs and
symptoms of infusion-related reactions. For Grade 3 or 4 reactions, stop
infusion and permanently discontinue KEYTRUDA.

Complications of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
(HSCT)

Immune-mediated complications, including fatal events, occurred in
patients who underwent allogeneic HSCT after treatment with KEYTRUDA. Of
23 patients with cHL who proceeded to allogeneic HSCT after KEYTRUDA, 6
developed graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) (1 fatal case) and 2
developed severe hepatic veno-occlusive disease (VOD) after
reduced-intensity conditioning (1 fatal case). Cases of fatal hyperacute
GVHD after allogeneic HSCT have also been reported in patients with
lymphoma who received a PD-1 receptor–blocking antibody before
transplantation. Follow patients closely for early evidence of
transplant-related complications such as hyperacute graft-versus-host
disease (GVHD), Grade 3 to 4 acute GVHD, steroid-requiring febrile
syndrome, hepatic veno-occlusive disease (VOD), and other
immune-mediated adverse reactions.

In patients with a history of allogeneic HSCT, acute GVHD (including
fatal GVHD) has been reported after treatment with KEYTRUDA. Patients
who experienced GVHD after their transplant procedure may be at
increased risk for GVHD after KEYTRUDA. Consider the benefit of KEYTRUDA
vs the risk of GVHD in these patients.

Increased Mortality in Patients With Multiple Myeloma

In trials in patients with multiple myeloma, the addition of KEYTRUDA to
a thalidomide analogue plus dexamethasone resulted in increased
mortality. Treatment of these patients with a PD-1 or PD-L1 blocking
antibody in this combination is not recommended outside of controlled
trials.

Embryofetal Toxicity

Based on its mechanism of action, KEYTRUDA can cause fetal harm when
administered to a pregnant woman. Advise women of this potential risk.
In females of reproductive potential, verify pregnancy status prior to
initiating KEYTRUDA and advise them to use effective contraception
during treatment and for 4 months after the last dose.

Adverse Reactions

In KEYNOTE-006, KEYTRUDA was discontinued due to adverse reactions in 9%
of 555 patients with advanced melanoma; adverse reactions leading to
permanent discontinuation in more than one patient were colitis (1.4%),
autoimmune hepatitis (0.7%), allergic reaction (0.4%), polyneuropathy
(0.4%), and cardiac failure (0.4%). The most common adverse reactions
(?20%) with KEYTRUDA were fatigue (28%), diarrhea (26%), rash (24%), and
nausea (21%).

In KEYNOTE-189, when KEYTRUDA was administered with pemetrexed and
platinum chemotherapy in metastatic nonsquamous NSCLC, KEYTRUDA was
discontinued due to adverse reactions in 20% of 405 patients. The most
common adverse reactions resulting in permanent discontinuation of
KEYTRUDA were pneumonitis (3%) and acute kidney injury (2%). The most
common adverse reactions (?20%) with KEYTRUDA were nausea (56%), fatigue
(56%), constipation (35%), diarrhea (31%), decreased appetite (28%),
rash (25%), vomiting (24%), cough (21%), dyspnea (21%), and pyrexia
(20%).

In KEYNOTE-407, when KEYTRUDA was administered with carboplatin and
either paclitaxel or nab-paclitaxel in metastatic squamous NSCLC,
KEYTRUDA was discontinued due to adverse reactions in 15% of 101
patients. The most frequent serious adverse reactions reported in at
least 2% of patients were febrile neutropenia, pneumonia, and urinary

About LYNPARZA® (olaparib)

LYNPARZA is a first-in-class PARP inhibitor and the first targeted
treatment to potentially exploit DNA damage response (DDR) pathway
deficiencies, such as BRCA mutations, to preferentially kill cancer
cells. Inhibition of PARP with LYNPARZA leads to the trapping of PARP
bound to DNA single-strand breaks, stalling of replication forks, their
collapse and the generation of DNA double-strand breaks and cancer cell
death. LYNPARZA is being tested in a range of tumor types with defects
and dependencies in the DDR.

LYNPARZA, which is being jointly developed and commercialized by
AstraZeneca and Merck, has a broad and advanced clinical trial
development program, and AstraZeneca and Merck are working together to
understand how it may affect multiple PARP-dependent tumors as a
monotherapy and in combination across multiple cancer types.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

CONTRAINDICATIONS

There are no contraindications for LYNPARZA.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Myelodysplastic Syndrome/Acute Myeloid Leukemia (MDS/AML):
Occurred in <1.5% of patients exposed to LYNPARZA monotherapy, and the
majority of events had a fatal outcome. The duration of therapy in
patients who developed secondary MDS/AML varied from <6 months to >2
years. All of these patients had previous chemotherapy with platinum
agents and/or other DNA-damaging agents, including radiotherapy, and
some also had a history of more than one primary malignancy or of bone
marrow dysplasia.

Do not start LYNPARZA until patients have recovered from hematological
toxicity caused by previous chemotherapy (?Grade 1). Monitor complete
blood count for cytopenia at baseline and monthly thereafter for
clinically significant changes during treatment. For prolonged
hematological toxicities, interrupt LYNPARZA and monitor blood count
weekly until recovery.

If the levels have not recovered to Grade 1 or less after 4 weeks, refer
the patient to a hematologist for further investigations, including bone
marrow analysis and blood sample for cytogenetics. Discontinue LYNPARZA
if MDS/AML is confirmed.

Pneumonitis: Occurred in <1% of patients exposed to LYNPARZA, and
some cases were fatal. If patients present with new or worsening
respiratory symptoms such as dyspnea, cough, and fever, or a
radiological abnormality occurs, interrupt LYNPARZA treatment and
initiate prompt investigation. Discontinue LYNPARZA if pneumonitis is
confirmed and treat patient appropriately.

Embryo-Fetal Toxicity: Based on its mechanism of action and
findings in animals, LYNPARZA can cause fetal harm. A pregnancy test is
recommended for females of reproductive potential prior to initiating
treatment.

Females

Advise females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a
fetus and to use effective contraception during treatment and for 6
months following the last dose.

Males

Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential or
who are pregnant to use effective contraception during treatment and for
3 months following the last dose of LYNPARZA and to not donate sperm
during this time.

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Anticancer Agents: Clinical studies of LYNPARZA in combination
with other myelosuppressive anticancer agents, including DNA-damaging
agents, indicate a potentiation and prolongation of myelosuppressive
toxicity.

CYP3A Inhibitors: Avoid concomitant use of strong or moderate
CYP3A inhibitors. If a strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitor must be
co-administered, reduce the dose of LYNPARZA. Advise patients to avoid
grapefruit, grapefruit juice, Seville oranges, and Seville orange juice
during LYNPARZA treatment.

CYP3A Inducers: Avoid concomitant use of strong or moderate CYP3A
inducers when using LYNPARZA. If a moderate inducer cannot be avoided,
there is a potential for decreased efficacy of LYNPARZA.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Lactation: No data are available regarding the presence of
olaparib in human milk, its effects on the breastfed infant or on milk
production. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in
the breastfed infant, advise a lactating woman not to breastfeed during
treatment with LYNPARZA and for 1 month after receiving the final dose.

Pediatric Use: The safety and efficacy of LYNPARZA have not been
established in pediatric patients.

Hepatic Impairment: No adjustment to the starting dose is
required in patients with mild or moderate hepatic impairment
(Child-Pugh classification A and B). There are no data in patients with
severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh classification C).

Renal Impairment: No adjustment to the starting dose is necessary
in patients with mild renal impairment (CLcr=51-80 mL/min) but patients
should be monitored closely for toxicity. In patients with moderate
renal impairment (CLcr=31-50 mL/min), reduce the dose to 200 mg twice
daily. There are no data in patients with severe renal impairment or
end-stage renal disease (CLcr ?30 mL/min).
