Cancer Home > Clofarabine Infusion

When receiving clofarabine (Clolar®) to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), your healthcare provider will make certain dosage recommendations based on several factors. Some of the factors that may affect the amount include your height and weight, and how you respond to the medication.
Clofarabine is given as an infusion, a slow injection into a vein. It is usually given once a day for five days in a row every two to six weeks.
A healthcare provider will administer the clofarabine infusion in a healthcare setting, such as a hospital or clinic. It will take about two hours to receive each dose.
