The stability of ifosfamide in Ringer lactate buffer solution either alone or mixed with mesna at 37°C for a 7-day period was analyzed by HPLC. This study was performed to investigate the feasibility of continuous infusion of ifosfamide by a multiday pump in order to reduce the toxicity and to increase the production of active alkylating metabolites of the parent drug. The total decay of ifosfamide activity did not exceed 3.2% at day 7. We conclude that ifosfamide can be safely delivered in a 7-day infusion with no significant loss of activity.
