The recommended dose of carboplatin in previously untreated adults patients with normal kidney is 400 mg/m² as a single intravenous infusion over 15-60 minutes. Therapy should not be repeated until four weeks after the previous carboplatin course and/or the neutrophil count is at least 2,000 cells/mm³ and the platelet count is at least 100,000 cells/mm³. It is recommended that according to clinical circumstances, the initial dosage may require reduction by 20-25% in patients with risk factors such as previous myelosuppressive therapy and poor performance status. Determination of hematological nadir by weekly blood counts during initial courses is recommended for future dosage adjustment and scheduling of carboplatin.
