2. SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
FOR DISPOSAL AND
OTHER HANDLING
General
Procedures for proper handling
and disposal of anticancer
medicinal products should
be considered. All transfer
procedures require strict
adherence to aseptic techniques,
preferably employing a vertical
laminar flow safety hood.
As with other cytotoxic
compounds, caution need to
be exercised in handling and
preparation of thiotepa solutions
to avoid accidental contact with
skin or mucous membranes.
Topical reactions associated
with accidental exposure to
thiotepa may occur. In fact, the
use of gloves is recommended
in preparing the solution for
infusion. If thiotepa solution
accidentally contacts the skin,
immediately the skin must be
thoroughly washed with soap
and water. If thiotepa accidentally
contacts mucous membranes,
they must be flushed thoroughly
with water.
