Tools and Interactive Calculators1
The following tools are provided here to assist transplant professionals with patient management:
The creatinine clearance calculator is an easy way to determine Valcyte adult dosing.
Dosing for pediatric patients may be calculated with the pediatric dosing tool.
Creatinine clearance calculator (adult)1
To use our online Creatinine Clearance Calculator, fill in the details and press Calculate to display the creatinine clearance and renal function.
This calculator is for informational purposes only. Calculations performed with this software should be verified and should not be solely relied upon when making treatment decisions. Please refer to the Valcyte Prescribing Information for the Cockcroft-Gault formula used in pivotal trials for renally adjusted dosing of this medication. Healthcare professionals who use this calculator should exercise their own clinical judgement as to the result.
- Modified Cockcroft-Gault formula: (140 – age [years]) x (body weight [kg])/(72) x (serum creatinine [mg/dL])
- For females = 0.85 x male value

Pediatric Dosing Calculator
Prevention of CMV disease1
For pediatric patients 4 months to 16 years of age who have received a kidney or heart transplant, the recommended daily dose of Valcyte starting within 10 days of transplantation until 100 days posttransplantation is based on body surface area (BSA) and creatinine clearance (CrCl) derived from a modified Schwartz formula.
This dosage may be quickly determined using the calculator below.
- If the calculated Schwartz creatinine clearance exceeds 150 mL/min/1.73 m2, then a maximum creatinine clearance value of 150 mL/min/1.73 m2 should be used in the equation
