Most chemotherapy regimens are dosed based on body surface area, which is calculated by using body weight and height. Obesity, which causes increase in the lipophilic compartment, is not well factored into this methodology of drug dosing. The amount of lipid penetrance of a drug can cause changes in the drug levels in the obese. Hypoalbuminemia causing decreased binding and increased free concentration of the drug can increase side effects. Interdrug interactions need to be taken into account when devising combination chemotherapy regimens.
