Jaypirca Dosage and Administration


Swallow whole. Take at the same time each day. 200mg once daily, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Severe renal impairment (eGFR 15–29mL/min): reduce to 100mg once daily if current dose is 200mg once daily, otherwise reduce dose by 50mg; if current dose is 50mg once daily, then discontinue therapy. Concomitant strong CYP3A inhibitors (if unavoidable): reduce dose by 50mg; if current dose is 50mg once daily, then interrupt therapy for the duration of strong CYP3A inhibitor use. Concomitant moderate CYP3A inducers (if unavoidable): increase to 300mg if current dose is 200mg once daily; if current dose is 50mg or 100mg daily, then increase the dose by 50mg.

Jaypirca Warnings/Precautions


Risk for serious hemorrhage (monitor); consider the benefit/risk of withholding treatment for 3–7 days pre- and post-surgery. Risk for serious infections (including bacterial, viral, or fungal) and opportunistic infections. Monitor for infections, evaluate promptly, and treat appropriately; consider antimicrobial prophylaxis or vaccinations in high risk patients. Monitor for cytopenias; obtain CBCs during therapy; interrupt, reduce dose, or discontinue as warranted. Monitor for cardiac arrhythmias (esp. in those with cardiac risk factors, hypertension, previous arrhythmias); manage appropriately. Second primary malignancies (eg, non-melanoma skin cancer, solid tumors, melanoma, others); advise to use sun protection; monitor. Severe renal impairment (eGFR 15–29mL/min): reduce Jaypirca dose (see Adults). Embryo-fetal toxicity. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during and for 1 week after the last dose. Pregnancy: exclude status prior to initiation. Nursing mothers: not recommended (during and for 1 week after the last dose).

Jaypirca Pharmacokinetics


Primarily metabolized by CYP3A4 and direct glucuronidation by UGT1A8 and UGT1A9, in vitro.


Following a single radiolabeled dose of pirtobrutinib 200mg to healthy subjects, 37% of the dose was recovered in feces (18% unchanged) and 57% in urine (10% unchanged). The effective half-life of pirtobrutinib is ~19 hours.

Jaypirca Interactions


Concomitant strong CYP3A inhibitors may increase risk of pirtobrutinib toxicities (eg, itraconazole); avoid use. If concomitant strong CYP3A inhibitors is unavoidable, reduce pirtobrutinib dose (see Adults). Concomitant moderate or strong CYP3A inducers may reduce pirtobrutinib efficacy (eg, efavirenz, bosentan, rifampin); avoid use. If concomitant moderate CYP3A inducers is unavoidable, increase pirtobrutinib dose (see Adults). Concomitant sensitive P-gp, CYP2C8, BCRP, CYP2C19, or CYP3A substrates may increase risk of adverse reactions related to substrates (eg, digoxin, repaglinide, rosuvastatin, omeprazole, midazolam). Caution with antithrombotic agents; monitor for bleeding.
