Bleomycin disposition was studied in two children who received at least six courses of vinblastine, bleomycin, and cisplatin. Total plasma clearance of bleomycin decreased from 39 to 18 ml/min/m2, while the terminal-phase half-life increased from 4.4 to 6.0 hrs since the cumulative cisplatin dose was > 300 mg/m2. In one patient, renal clearance of bleomycin decreased from 30 to 8.2 ml/min/m2. Changes in serum creatinine on BUN were not predictive of changes in bleomycin elimination.
