WESTPORT, Oct 26 (Reuters Health) - Pharmacia & Upjohn announced
on Friday that the Food and Drug Administration had approved the
company's Camptosar (irinotecan hydrochloride) Injection for
treatment of colorectal cancer.  The drug is indicated for
treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer whose
disease has recurred or spread after receiving the current
standard chemotherapy.  According to a Pharmacia & Upjohn press
release posted on PR Newswire, the FDA granted accelerated
approval of the drug in June 1996 for metastatic cancer of the
colon or rectum that recurred or progressed after therapy with
fluorouracil (5-FU).
