What is Matulane?

Matulane (procarbazine hydrochloride) is a medication used in combination with other anticancer drugs to treat Stage III and IV Hodgkin’s disease. 

Stage III Hodgkin’s disease involves cancer in lymph nodes above and below the diaphragm or nodes above the diaphragm and spleen; Stage IV shows cancer spread to organs beyond the lymph system such as the liver, bone marrow, or lungs.

Matulane is part of the MOPP treatment plan, which includes nitrogen mustard, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone. Procarbazine hydrochloride, found in Matulane, is an anticancer agent available in capsule form.

Before starting Matulane, it’s important to ensure normal kidney and liver functions to minimize side effects. Bone marrow depression, a common side effect, typically occurs a few weeks into treatment, necessitating careful monitoring to prevent infections.

Dosage Information and Usage

Dosage Form and Strengths of Matulane

Matulane is available in capsule form containing 50 mg of procarbazine hydrochloride.

Usage

When used alone, Matulane is administered based on the patient’s weight, starting with 2 to 4 mg per kilogram of body weight per day to minimize initial nausea and vomiting. 

The daily dose is then adjusted to 4 to 6 mg/kg/day until the desired response is achieved or certain blood counts drop. 

Maintenance doses can be reduced to 1 to 2 mg/kg/day once maximum response is attained. 

Treatment needs close monitoring for blood-related and other toxic side effects. Therapy can restart once any adverse effects are resolved, following clinical assessment and lab tests.

Side Effects of Matulane

Common Side Effects

  • Leukopenia (low white blood cells)
  • Anemia (low red blood cells)
  • Thrombocytopenia (low platelets)
  • Nausea and vomiting

Serious but Rare Side Effects

  • Coma and convulsions
  • Neurological issues like neuropathy (damage to nerves) and ataxia (loss of coordination)
  • Liver problems and jaundice yellowing of the skin and eyes due to liver dysfunction)
  • Bleeding tendencies such as petechiae (small red or purple spots on the skin due to bleeding under the skin) and hemoptysis (coughing up blood)
  • Respiratory issues like pneumonitis (inflammation of lung tissue)
  • Dermatological issues such as rash and alopecia (hair loss)
  • Psychiatric symptoms like hallucinations and depression

Warnings and Precautions

  • To reduce the risk of central nervous system depression and increased effects, be cautious when using medications such as barbiturates, antihistamines, narcotics, hypotensive agents, or phenothiazines. Central nervous system depression slows brain activity, while potentiation amplifies the effects of another substance.
  • Avoid ethyl alcohol while taking Matulane to prevent an Antabuse-like reaction. An Antabuse-like reaction causes severe discomfort when alcohol is consumed, similar to the effects of disulfiram.
  • Due to its monoamine oxidase inhibitory activity, avoid sympathomimetic drugs, tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., amitriptyline, imipramine), and foods high in tyramine like wine, yogurt, ripe cheese, and bananas. Monoamine oxidase inhibitors affect neurotransmitters in the brain, potentially causing dangerous interactions with these medications and foods.
  • Hydrazine derivatives such as Matulane can cause hemolysis (breakdown of red blood cells) and the formation of Heinz-Ehrlich inclusion bodies in red blood cells. Hemolysis is the destruction of red blood cells, and Heinz-Ehrlich bodies are unusual structures found in red blood cells in specific circumstances.

Pregnancy Considerations:

  • Matulane may harm a fetus if used while pregnant. Women should be told about the risks and advised to avoid pregnancy during treatment.

Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, and Fertility Impairment:

  • Matulane has been linked to an increased risk of second cancers like lung cancer and leukemia in patients receiving intensive treatment regimens.
  • It has shown mutagenic effects in various test systems, suggesting it can cause genetic mutations.
  • Matulane may impair fertility in men, leading to conditions like azoospermia (lack of sperm in semen) and other reproductive issues. 
  • Use Matulane cautiously in patients with kidney or liver impairment, as they may experience increased toxicity. 
  • Patients who have recently undergone radiation or other bone marrow-depressant treatments should wait at least a month before starting Matulane to allow for bone marrow recovery.
  • Promptly discontinue Matulane if serious side effects occur, such as neurological symptoms, low blood counts, hypersensitivity reactions, or severe gastrointestinal issues.
  • Bone marrow depression can occur weeks after starting treatment, requiring close monitoring and potentially hospitalization to manage infections.

Overdosage

If someone takes too much Matulane, symptoms may include:

  • severe nausea, 
  • vomiting, 
  • stomach inflammation (enteritis), 
  • diarrhea, 
  • low blood pressure (hypotension), 
  • shaking (tremors), 
  • seizures (convulsions), and 
  • unconsciousness (coma)

Treatment involves using medications to induce vomiting or washing out the stomach (gastric lavage). Patients should receive supportive care like intravenous fluids. 

Since Matulane’s main risks relate to blood and liver issues, regular blood tests and liver function tests are crucial during recovery and for a minimum of two weeks after. Any abnormal results in these tests require prompt medical attention.
