What drugs interact with Tabrecta?
Effect Of Other Drugs On Tabrecta
Strong CYP3A Inhibitors
- Coadministration of Tabrecta with a strong CYP3A inhibitor increased capmatinib exposure, which may increase the incidence and severity of adverse reactions of Tabrecta. Closely monitor patients for adverse reactions during coadministration of Tabrecta with strong CYP3A inhibitors.
Strong And Moderate CYP3A Inducers
- Coadministration of Tabrecta with a strong CYP3A inducer decreased capmatinib exposure. Coadministration of Tabrecta with a moderate CYP3A inducer may also decrease capmatinib exposure. Decreases in capmatinib exposure may decrease Tabrecta anti-tumor activity. Avoid coadministration of Tabrecta with strong and moderate CYP3A inducers.
Effect Of Tabrecta On Other Drugs
- Coadministration of Tabrecta increased the exposure of a CYP1A2 substrate, which may increase the adverse reactions of these substrates. If coadministration is unavoidable between Tabrecta and CYP1A2 substrates where minimal concentration changes may lead to serious adverse reactions, decrease the CYP1A2 substrate dosage in accordance with the approved prescribing information.
P-glycoprotein (P-gp) And Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP) Substrates
- Coadministration of Tabrecta increased the exposure of a P-gp substrate and a BCRP substrate, which may increase the adverse reactions of these substrates. If coadministration is unavoidable between Tabrecta and P-gp or BCRP substrates where minimal concentration changes may lead to serious adverse reactions, decrease the P-gp or BCRP substrate dosage in accordance with the approved prescribing information.
MATE1 And MATE2K Substrates
- Coadministration of Tabrecta may increase the exposure of MATE1 and MATE2K substrates, which may increase the adverse reactions of these substrates. If coadministration is unavoidable between Tabrecta and MATE1 or MATE2K substrates where minimal concentration changes may lead to serious adverse reactions, decrease the MATE1 or MATE2K substrate dosage in accordance with the approved prescribing information.

Causes of emphysema include chronic cigarette smoking, exposure to secondhand smoke, air pollution, and in the underdeveloped parts of the world. Symptoms of emphysema include chronic cough, chest discomfort, breathlessness, and wheezing. Treatments include medication and lifestyle changes.

You can find hookah cafes all over the world, for example, the U.S., France, Russia, Britain, and the Middle East. New forms of electronic hookah are now available.

Smoking tobacco via cigarettes or hookah are both dangerous to your health.
What Is the Most Common Cause of Multiple Nodules in the Lungs?
Multiple nodules in the lungs or multiple pulmonary nodules (MPN) refer to two or more lesions in the lungs. The most common cause of MPN is metastatic cancer or cancer spread from other parts to the lungs. Causes of MPN can be malignant (cancerous) or benign (noncancerous).
Lung cancer kills more men and women than any other form of cancer. Eight out of 10 lung cancers are due to tobacco smoke. Lung cancers are classified as either small-cell or non-small-cell lung cancers.
The lungs are primarily responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the air we breathe and the blood. Eliminating carbon dioxide from the blood is important, because as it builds up in the blood, headaches, drowsiness, coma, and eventually death may occur. The air we breathe in (inhalation) is warmed, humidified, and cleaned by the nose and the lungs.

Popcorn Lung (Bronchiolitis Obliterans)
Popcorn lung is a term for the lung disease bronchiolitis obliterans. Popcorn lung is caused by diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione, chemicals used when manufacturing flavorings for food certain products like popcorn, coffee. E-cigarettes also may cause popcorn lung. Diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione damage lung tissue that is irreversible. Symptoms of popcorn lung develop gradually over time. The main symptoms are chronic cough and shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include night sweats, weight loss, and fever. Symptoms of severe exposure to diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione include inflammation of the skin, eyes, nose, and/or throat. Popcorn lung often resembles tobacco-related COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) so it often is difficult to diagnose. Lung biopsy and surgery may be necessary. There is no cure for popcorn lung. Life expectancy for a person with (bronchiolitis obliterans) depends upon how early the disease was diagnosed and level of exposure to diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione.
