TO ACT

Vistogard®* (uridine triacetate) oral granules is the first and only antidote for 5-FU overdose and early-onset, severe or serious 5-FU toxicity

Indication

VISTOGARD® is indicated for the emergency treatment of adult and pediatric patients:

  • Following a fluorouracil or capecitabine overdose regardless of the presence of symptoms, or
  • Who exhibit early-onset, severe or life- threatening toxicity affecting the cardiac or central nervous system, and/or early-onset, unusually severe adverse reactions (e.g., gastrointestinal toxicity and/or neutropenia) within 96 hours following the end of fluorouracil or capecitabine administration.

Limitations of use

  • VISTOGARD® is not recommended for the non-emergent treatment of adverse reactions associated with fluorouracil or capecitabine because it may diminish the efficacy of these drugs.
  • The safety and efficacy of VISTOGARD initiated more than 96 hours following the end of fluorouracil or capecitabine administration have not been established.
