Single-agent use:
Pancreatic cancer: gemcitabine should be administered by intravenous infusion at a dose of 1,000 mg/m2 over 30 minutes once weekly for up to 7 weeks, followed by a week of rest from treatment. Subsequent cycles should consist of infusions once weekly for 3 consecutive weeks out of every 4 weeks.
Dose modifications: dosage adjustment is based upon the degree of hematologic toxicity experienced by the patient.
Combination use :
Non-small cell lung cancer: two schedules have been investigated and the optimum schedule has not been determined. With the 4-weeks schedule, gemcitabine should be administered intravenously at 1,000 mg/m2 over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15 of each 28-day cycle. With the 3-weeks schedule, gemcitabine should be administered intravenously at 1,250 mg/m2 over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8 of each 21-day cycle. Cisplatin has been used at doses between 75-100 mg/m2 after administration of gemcitabine on day 1 of each 21-day or 28-day cycle. Dosage reduction with each cycle or within a cycle may be applied based upon the amount of toxicity experienced by the patients.

Paclitaxel should be administered at 175 mg/m2 on day 1 as a 3 hours intravenous infusion before gemcitabine administration. Patients should be monitored prior to each dose with a complete blood count, including differential counts. Patient should have an absolute granulocyte count 1,500 x 106/l and a platelet count >100,000 x 106/l prior to each cycle. Dosage reduction with each cycle or within a cycle may be applied based upon the amount of toxicity experienced by the patient.
