Etoposide is a drug whose antineoplastic activity is dependent on the schedule of drug administration. This article reviews the rationale for a prolonged schedule of etoposide administration and the therapeutic results of use of such a schedule in the treatment of cancer. The pharmacology of etoposide is also reviewed, with particular attention paid to the pharmacokinetics of oral etoposide and etoposide plasma concentrations associated with cytotoxicity.
