The specific gamma ray constant for I-125 is 1.43 R/mCi-hr at 1 cm. The first half value thickness of lead (Pb) for I-125 is 0.017 mm. A range of values for the relative attenuation of the radiation emitted by this radionuclide resulting from interposition of various thicknesses of Pb is shown in Table 2. For example, the use of 0.28 mm of Pb will decrease the external radiation exposure by a factor of 10,000.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY
The renal clearance of sodium iothalamate in man closely approximates that of inulin. The cmpd is cleared by glomerular flitration w/out tobular secretion or reabsorption. Following infusion administration of I-125 iothalamate, the effective half-life is about 0.07 days.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE
GLOFIL-125 (Sodium Iothalamate I-125 Injection) is indicated for evaluation of glomerular filtration in the diagnosis or monitoring of patients with renal disease.

CONTRAINDICATIONS
None known.

WARNINGS
None known.

PRECAUTIONS
General
As in the use of any radioactive material, care should be taken to minimize radiation exposure to the patient, consistent with proper patient management, and to insure minimum radiation exposure to occupational workers.Radiopharmaceuticals should be used only by physicians who are qualified by trainiing and experience in the safe use and handling of radionuclides.Rapid or bolus-like injections should be avoided.
Carcinogenesis, Mutagenisis, Impairment of Fertility
No long-term animal studies have been performed to evaluate carcinogenic potential, mutagenic potential, or whether this drug affects fertility in males or females.
Pregnancy Category C
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with GLOFIL-125. It is also not known whether GLOFIL-125 can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. GLOFIL-125 should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
Nursing Mothers
Radioiodine is excreted in human milk during lactation. It is not knoen whether GLOFIL-125 is excreted in himan milk. Therefore, formula feedings should be substituted for breast feedings.
Pediatric Use
Safety and effectiveness in children have not been established.

ADVERSE REACTIONS
None reported.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Dosage
The suggested dose range employed in the average patient (70 kg) is as follows:Continuous intravenous infusion: 20 to 100 uCi (0.74-3.7 megabecquerels) (Sigman, et al.1 method).Single intravenous injection: 10 to 30 uCi (0.37-1.11 megabecquerels) (Cohen, et al.2 method).The patient dose should be measured by a suitable radioactivity calibration system immediately prior to administration.
TechniqueContinuous intravenous infusion
1. Preparation:
A.
Adequae diuresis (a urine flow exceeding 3 mL/min.) is established, preferably by an oral water load of 1,500 mL two hours prior to the beginninh of the clearance study.
B. It is not necessary to withhold breakfast or admit the patient the night before.
2. Procedure:
A.
After the establishment of adequate diuresis, a number 14 or 16 French Foley catheter is aseptically inserted into the bladder.
B. An intravenous infusion of Lactated Ringer's (Hartmann's) solution is started in each arm, one to maintain a site for injection of the GLOFIL, the other to serve as a site for serial withdrawal of blood. A two-way stopcock connects the needle and intravenous tubing of each arm.
C. The dose is equally divided into (1) an intravenous priming dose to be injected as is and (2) a sustaining dose to be diluted in 30 to 60 mL of isotonic sodium chloride, depending on how many collection periods are anticipated.
D. The priming dose is sloewly injected into one arm. This is immediately followed by infusion of the sustaining solution through the same site, usually at the rate of 0.5 mL/min., by means of an automatic pump. During this infusion, the Lactated Ringer's solution in the same same arm is discontinued, and 40 to 45 minutes are allowed for equilibration in order to reach a state of constant plasma concentration of radioactivity.
E. After attaining equilibration, consecutive 15 minute collection periods are started. From the arm opposite the injection site, 5 mL of blood (allowing duplicate plasma counting volumes) is drawn six minutes prior to the midpnt of each collection period, placed in heparinized tubes, mixed, and centrifuged. The blood sampkes may be obtained through the two-way stopcock after discarding the first 30 mL aspirated into the syringe. This 30 mL contains the contents of the tubing, including infusion fluid, and must be cleared in order to obtain an undiluted blood sample. If desired, this step may be eliminated and blood samples obtained by direct venipuncture.F. During each collection period, total urine must be accurately collected and the volume accurately measured. Three such consecutive collection periods are sufficient for most clinical studies.
3. Clearance Calculations:
A.
Aliquots (1 mL each) of plasma and urine from each collection period are counted in a standard gamma-ray scintillation well director.
B. All counts are corrected for background activity.
C. Glomerular filtration rate is calculated by the formula
C=UV/P, in which:
C= glomerular filtration rate in mL/min
U= urinary concentration of radioactivity in net counts/min/mL
V= urinary flow rate in mL/min
P= plasma concentration of radioactivity in net counts/min/mL
D. Average glomerular filtraytion rate (GFR) is calculated from the rates for the individual collection periods. GFR can be expressed in terms of body weight (mL/min/kg) or body surface area (mL/min/m2).
E. Unilateral glomerular filtration rates can be deternined by the same techniqyue by utilizing ureteral catherization.

Single intravenous injection
Cohen's Method:
The method of Cohen, et al.2 requires little preparation, few and small blood samples, no bladder catherization, and no constant intravenous infusion. It is simple to perform, rapid, and utilizes equipment which is readily available in most modern laboratories.
1. Preparation:
A.
Lugol's solution, 3 drops orally, three times a day, is administered for one or two days prior to the test.No diet or water restriction is necessary.
B. Oral water load is begun one hour before starting the test. Start with 20 mL/kg and force any clear liquids (unless contraindicated) until the test is complete.
2. Procedure:
Record actual times for teh collection of the blood and urine samples.
A. Empty the bladder and label the urine Urine control.
B. Inject 10-30 uCi GLOFIL-125 intravenously; wait 30 to 60 minutes.
C. Collect the entire urine and label Urine discard.
D. Draw 4 to 5 mL of blood into a heparinized syringe. Label Plasma #1 .
E. After another 30 to 60 minutes, collect the entire urine and label Urine #1.
F. Immediately draw another blood specimen. Label Plasma #2.
G. After final 30 to 60 minute wait, collect the urine. Label Urine #2.
H. Draw the last blood specimen immediately. Label Plasma #3.
3. Clearance Calculations:
1.
Radioactivity of one mL aliquots of both urine and plasma are determined using a well-scintillation detector with a single channel pulse-height analyzer. Sufficiently reproducible counts are usually obtained with time settings of 2 minutes for urine samples and 20 minutes for the plasnma samples. Calculations of the clearance rates are made by using the formula:
C=(UV/P) + (1.73/SA) where:
C= glomerular filtration rate in mL/min
U= urine radioactivity in counts/min/mL
V= urine flow rate in mL/minP= mean plasma radioactivity in counts/min/mL
SA= body surface area in m2
Radiation Dosimetry
The estimated absorbed radiation doses to an average (70 kg) patient from an intravenous dose of 100 uCi (3.7 megabecquerels) of GLOFIL-125 are shown in Table 4. Calculations assume that there is 1% feree iodide in the preparation and that the thyroid uptake of the iodine is 25%.

HOW SUPPLIED
Identity
No. 1000, Glofil-125 is a clear, colorless, sterile, and nonpyrogenic solution available as a 4 mL vial. It is supplied in a concentration of approximately 1 mg/mL sodium iothalamate (range is 0.5-2.0 mg sodium iothalamate per mL), with a radioactivity concentration of 250 to 300 uCi/mL at the time of calibration. Benzyl alcohol 0.9%, is added as a preservative. Sodium bicarbonate and hydrochloric acid are added for pH adjustment. The calibration and expiration are shown on the label.
Storage
Refrigerate the product upon receipt at 2oC to 8oC.
Dose Volume Calculation
Table 3 provides the required factors for the determination of activity per mL post calibration date for GLOFIL-125 sterile solution.To determine the dose volume, locate the decay factor (fraction remaining) which corresponds to the day that the dose is to be administered. The following equation then utilized to determine the dose volume:
[activity of desired dose/(decay factor x amount of activity/mL on calibration day)] (information on label)= dose volume (mL)
