dosage (mg) = AUC (mg/ml x min) x carboplatin clearance
- AUC = Area Under
clearance for Male = (0,134xweight)+(218xweightx(1-0.00457xage)/serum creat.)
clearance for Female = (0,134xweight)+0.686x(218xweightx(1-0.00457xage)/serum cr?t.)
- For obese patients : if total body weight(TBW)/
ideal body weight(IBW) >= 1.2, weight is corrected by the mean
between TBW and IBW. IBW calculation is performed with Lorentz
Formula. This correction is calculated automatically by the
