What Is Calquence?

Acalabrutinib is also known by the brand name, Calquence. It is a type of chemotherapy and an antineoplastic (anticancer) drug that belongs to a class called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). TKIs work by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosine kinase, thus blocking cell growth and division.

Calquence is not considered a hazardous agent.

What Is Chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment in which certain drugs are used to kill cancerous cells. These drugs are usually cytotoxic chemical substances that are toxic to the cells, restrict their growth, prevent their division, and ultimately kill the cells.

How Is Calquence Used?

Calquence has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat different types of incurable blood cancers like chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), or mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Calquence can be prescribed alone or in combination with other chemotherapy agents, like obinutuzumab (Gazyva), depending on the severity and type of cancer.

Available Formulations

Calquence is only available in the form of capsules and must be administered orally. The capsules are only available in a 100 mg strength. The capsules are yellow and blue and have “ACA 100 mg” imprinted on them. Calquence is dosed twice a day, and the dose is dependent on the cancer type or severity and other factors. Verify the correct dose and frequency with your provider.

Directions for Use

Calquence may be taken with or without food, but it should be taken with water. When taking the capsule, swallow it whole; do not open, break, crush, chew, or allow it to dissolve in your mouth. If taken in combination with obinutuzumab (Gazyva), which is given intravenously, it is best to take Calquence at least one hour prior to the infusion.

Missed Dose

If you accidentally miss a dose, and it has been more than 3 hours, skip the missed dose and continue with the next scheduled dose. Do not take extra doses to make up for a missed dose.

Storage

Store capsules in a cool, dry place at room temperature and ensure the bottle is tightly closed.

Pregnancy and Calquence

Pregnancy status must be checked prior to starting chemotherapy in women of child-bearing age. Effective contraception must be used during treatment and for 1 week after the last dose. Calquence may cause fetal harm and is therefore not recommended for women who are breastfeeding during therapy. Breastfeeding should also be avoided for at least 2 weeks after the last dose.
