Cyclophosphamide is a drug that is used primarily for treating several types ofcancer. In order to work, cyclophosphamide first is converted by the liver into two chemicals, acrolein and phosphoramide. Acrolein and phosphoramide are the active compounds, and they slow the growth of cancer cells by interfering with the actions of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) within the cancerous cells. It is, therefore, referred to as a cytotoxic drug. Unfortunately, normal cells also are affected, and this results in serious side effects. Cytoxan also suppresses the immune system and is also referred to as immunosuppressive.

DOSING: The usual initial dose for adults and children is 40-50 mg/kg administered intravenously over 3-5 days in divided doses. The usual oral dose is 1-5 mg/kg daily. Subsequent maintenance doses are adjusted based on the response of the tumor to treatment and the side effect

We previously reported the improvement of clinical parameters in severe, refractory chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) following high-dose cyclophosphamide therapy. Here, we examine effects of this therapy on quality of life, report long-term clinical follow-up, and include new data on a fifth patient. Patients completed The Medical Outcomes Short Form 36 to assess quality of life impact. Pretherapy and post-therapy scores were compared with the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test. Patient's post-therapy scores were compared with the normal United States population. Functional status was assessed with the Modified Rankin score. Strength was assessed using a summated MRC strength. Nerve conduction studies were conducted using standard techniques with supramaximal stimulation. The median follow-up for the five patients is 2.9 (range: 1.6-4.8) years. The first four patients remain off all immunomodulatory medications. In six of the eight quality of life scales measured, patients enjoyed clinically significant improvement. Their overall strength increased by a median change of 10 (range: -1 to 20); their overall Modified Rankin score increased by a median of 3 (range: 0-4), and their summated compound motor action potential amplitudes increased by a mean of 3.69 mV (range: 0.156-7.83). Patient 5 has had stabilization of motor strength. High-dose cyclophosphamide can markedly improve functionality and quality of life for patients with severe refractory CIDP.
