Regulation of de novo purine biosynthesis in human lymphoblasts. Coordinate control of proximal (rate-determining) steps and the inosinic acid branch point. (1/449)

Purine nucleotide synthesis de novo has been studied in a permanent tissue culture line of human splenic lymphoblasts with particular attention to coordination of control of the proximal (rate-determining) steps with the distal branch point of the pathway. An assay was used which permits simultaneous determination of the overall rate of labeling of all intracellular purines with sodium [14C]formate, as well as the distribution of isotope into all intracellular guanine- and adenine-containing compounds. The guanine to adenine labeling ratio was used as an index of IMP branch point regulation. It was found that exogenous adenine and guanine produce feedback-controlling effects not only on the first step in the de novo pathway, but also on the IMP branch point. Concentrations of adenine which produce less than 40% inhibition of the overall rate of de novo purine synthesis do so by selectively inhibiting adenine nucleotide synthesis de novo by 50 to 70% while stimulating guanine nucleotide synthesis de novo by up to 20%. A reciprocal effect is seen with exogenous guanine. The adenosine analog 6-methylmercaptopurine ribonucleoside selectivity inhibits adenine nucleotide synthesis via the de novo pathway but not from exogenous hypoxanthine. Thus, the reactions of purine nucleotide interconversion, in particular adenylosuccinate synthetase, may be regulated differently in cells deriving their purine nucleotides solely from de novo synthesis than when deriving them via "salvage" of preformed hypoxanthine.  (+info)

Therapeutic drug monitoring of antimetabolic cytotoxic drugs. (2/449)

Therapeutic drug monitoring is not routinely used for cytotoxic agents. There are several reasons, but one major drawback is the lack of established therapeutic concentration ranges. Combination chemotherapy makes the establishment of therapeutic ranges for individual drugs difficult, the concentration-effect relationship for a single drug may not be the same as that when the drug is used in a drug combination. Pharmacokinetic optimization protocols for many classes of cytotoxic compounds exist in specialized centres, and some of these protocols are now part of large multicentre trials. Nonetheless, methotrexate is the only agent which is routinely monitored in most treatment centres. An additional factor, especially in antimetabolite therapy, is the existence of pharmacogenetic enzymes which play a major role in drug metabolism. Monitoring of therapy could include assay of phenotypic enzyme activities or genotype in addition to, or instead of, the more traditional measurement of parent drug or drug metabolites. The cytotoxic activities of mercaptopurine and fluorouracil are regulated by thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) and dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD), respectively. Lack of TPMT functional activity produces life-threatening mercaptopurine myelotoxicity. Very low DPD activity reduces fluorouracil breakdown producing severe cytotoxicity. These pharmacogenetic enzymes can influence the bioavailability, pharmacokinetics, toxicity and efficacy of their substrate drugs.  (+info)

Prognostic importance of 6-mercaptopurine dose intensity in acute lymphoblastic leukemia. (3/449)

6-Mercaptopurine (6MP) and methotrexate are the backbone of continuation therapy for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In studies of oral 6MP and methotrexate, indices of chronic systemic exposure to active metabolites of these agents, namely, red blood cell (RBC) concentrations of methotrexate polyglutamates (MTXPGs) and thioguanine nucleotides (TGNs) have positively correlated with event-free survival (EFS). Our objective was to evaluate whether MTXPGs, TGNs, and the dose intensity of administered methotrexate and 6MP were prognostic in the setting of a treatment protocol in which all treatment was coordinated through a single center, and the weekly doses of methotrexate were given parenterally. On protocol Total XII, 182 children achieved remission and received weekly methotrexate 40 mg/m2 parenterally and daily oral 6MP, interrupted every 6 weeks during the first year by pulse chemotherapy. A total of 709 TGN, 418 MTX-PG, and 267 thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) measurements, along with complete dose intensity information (dose received divided by protocol dose per week) for 19,046 weeks of 6MP and methotrexate, were analyzed. In univariate analyses, only higher dose intensity of 6MP and of weekly methotrexate were significant predictors of overall EFS (P =.006 and. 039, respectively). The occurrence of neutropenia was associated with worse outcome (P =.040). In a multivariate analysis, only higher dose intensity of 6MP (P =.020) was a significant predictor of EFS, with lower TPMT activity (P =.096) tending to associate with better outcome. 6MP dose intensity was also associated (P =.007) with EFS among patients with homozygous wild-type TPMT phenotype. Lower 6MP dose intensity was primarily due to missed weeks of therapy and not to reductions in daily dose. We conclude that increased dose-intensity of oral 6MP is an important determinant of EFS in ALL, particularly among those children with a homozygous wild-type TPMT phenotype. However, increasing intensity of therapy such that neutropenia precludes chemotherapy administration may be counterproductive.  (+info)

Purine analogue 6-methylmercaptopurine riboside inhibits early and late phases of the angiogenesis process. (4/449)

Angiogenesis has been identified as an important target for antineoplastic therapy. The use of purine analogue antimetabolites in combination chemotherapy of solid tumors has been proposed. To assess the possibility that selected purine analogues may affect tumor neovascularization, 6-methylmercaptopurine riboside (6-MMPR), 6-methylmercaptopurine, 2-aminopurine, and adenosine were evaluated for the capacity to inhibit angiogenesis in vitro and in vivo. 6-MMPR inhibited fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF2)-induced proliferation and delayed the repair of mechanically wounded monolayer in endothelial GM 7373 cell cultures. 6-MMPR also inhibited the formation of solid sprouts within fibrin gel by FGF2-treated murine brain microvascular endothelial cells and the formation of capillary-like structures on Matrigel by murine aortic endothelial cells transfected with FGF2 cDNA. 6-MMPR affected FGF2-induced intracellular signaling in murine aortic endothelial cells by inhibiting the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase-2. The other molecules were ineffective in all of the assays. In vivo, 6-MMPR inhibited vascularization in the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane and prevented blood vessel formation induced by human endometrial adenocarcinoma specimens grafted onto the chorioallantoic membrane. Also, topical administration of 6-MMPR caused the regression of newly formed blood vessels in the rabbit cornea. Thus, 6-MMPR specifically inhibits both the early and the late phases of the angiogenesis process in vitro and exerts a potent anti-angiogenic activity in vivo. These results provide a new rationale for the use of selected purine analogues in combination therapy of solid cancer.  (+info)

A randomized comparison of all transretinoic acid (ATRA) followed by chemotherapy and ATRA plus chemotherapy and the role of maintenance therapy in newly diagnosed acute promyelocytic leukemia. The European APL Group. (5/449)

All transretinoic acid (ATRA) followed by daunorubicin (DNR)-AraC chemotherapy (CT) has improved the outcome of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) by comparison to CT alone. In a randomized trial, (1) we compared 2 induction schedules (ATRA followed by CT [ATRA-->CT] and ATRA plus CT [ATRA+CT, with CT added on day 3 of ATRA treatment]) and (2) we assessed the role of maintenance treatment. Four hundred thirteen patients CT and ATRA+CT (initially randomized patients); patients with a WBC count greater than (high WBC count group, n = 163) and patients 66 to 75 years of age with a WBC count greater than 5,000/microL (elderly group, n = 42) were not initially randomized and received ATRA+CT from day 1 and ATRA -->CT, respectively. All patients achieving CR received 2 additional DNR-AraC courses (only 1 in patients 66 to 75 years of age) and were then randomized for maintenance between no treatment, intermittent ATRA (15 days every 3 months) for 2 years, continuous low-dose CT (6 mercaptopurine + methotrexate) for 2 years, or both, using a 2-by-2 factorial design. Overall, 381 (92%) of the patients achieved complete remission (CR), 31 (7%) suffered an early death, and only 1 patient had leukemic resistance. ATRA syndrome occurred in 64 patients (15%) and was fatal in 5 cases. The CR rate was similar in all induction treatment groups. Event-free survival (EFS) was significantly lower in the high WBC group (P =.0002) and close to significance in the elderly group (P =.086) as compared with initially randomized patients. Relapse at 2 years was estimated at 6% in the ATRA+CT group, versus 16% in the ATRA-->CT group (P =.04, relative risk [RR] =.41). EFS at 2 years was estimated at 84% in the ATRA+CT group, versus 77% in the ATRA-->CT group (P =.1, RR =.62). Two hundred eighty-nine patients were randomized for maintenance. The 2-year relapse rate was 11% in patients randomized to continuous maintenance CT and 27% in patients randomized to no CT (P =.0002) and 13% in patients randomized to intermittent ATRA and 25% in patients randomized to no ATRA (P =.02). An additive effect of continuous maintenance CT and intermittent ATRA was seen, and only 6 of the 74 patients who received both maintenance treatments had relapsed. Overall survival was improved in patients who received maintenance CT (P =.01), and there was a trend for better survival in patients who received maintenance ATRA (P =.22). Our findings strongly suggest that early addition of chemotherapy to ATRA and maintenance therapy combining continuous CT and intermittent ATRA can reduce the incidence of relapse in APL. This effect already translates into significantly better survival for maintenance treatment with continuous CT.  (+info)

Glutathione-dependent metabolism of cis-3-(9H-purin-6-ylthio)acrylic acid to yield the chemotherapeutic drug 6-mercaptopurine: evidence for two distinct mechanisms in rats. (6/449)

cis-3-(9H-Purin-6-ylthio)acrylic acid (PTA) is a structural analog of azathioprine, a prodrug of the antitumor and immunosuppressive drug 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP). In this study, we examined the in vitro and in vivo metabolism of PTA in rats. Two metabolites of PTA, 6-MP and the major metabolite, S-(9H-purin-6-yl)glutathione (PG), were formed in a time- and GSH-dependent manner in vitro. Formation of 6-MP and PG occurred nonenzymatically, but 6-MP formation was enhanced 2- and 7-fold by the addition of liver and kidney homogenates, respectively. Purified rat liver glutathione S-transferases enhanced 6-MP formation from PTA by 1.8-fold, whereas human recombinant alpha, mu, and pi isozymes enhanced 6-MP formation by 1.7-, 1.3-, and 1.3-fold, respectively. In kidney homogenate incubations, PG accumulation was only observed during the first 15 min because of further metabolism by gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase, dipeptidase, and beta-lyase to yield 6-MP, as indicated by the use of the inhibitors acivicin and aminooxyacetic acid. Based on these results and other lines of evidence, two different GSH-dependent pathways are proposed for 6-MP formation: an indirect pathway involving PG formation and further metabolism to 6-MP, and a direct pathway in which PTA acts as a Michael acceptor. HPLC analyses of urine of rats treated i.p. with PTA (100 mg/kg) showed that 6-MP was formed in vivo and excreted in urine without apparent liver or kidney toxicity. Collectively, these studies show that PTA is metabolized to 6-MP both in vitro and in vivo and may therefore be a useful prodrug of 6-MP.  (+info)

Modification of cardiac Na(+) current by RWJ 24517 and its enantiomers in guinea pig ventricular myocytes. (7/449)

We examined the effects of the cardiotonic agent RWJ 24517 (Carsatrin, racemate) and its (S)- and (R)-enantiomers on action potential duration, Na(+) current (I(Na)), and delayed rectifier K(+) current (I(K)) of guinea pig ventricular myocytes. RWJ 24517 (0. 1 and 1 microM) prolongation of action potential duration could not be accounted for by suppression of either the rapid (I(Kr)) or slow (I(Ks),) component of I(K), although RWJ 24517 did reduce I(Kr) at concentrations of 1 microM. A more dramatic effect of RWJ 24517 (0.1-1 microM) and the (S)-enantiomer of RWJ 24517 (0.1-3 microM) was an increase in peak I(Na) and slowing of the rate of I(Na) decay, eliciting a large steady-state current. Neither RWJ 24517 nor the (S)-enantiomer affected the fast time constant for I(Na) decay, but both significantly increased the slow time constant, in addition to increasing the proportion of I(Na) decaying at the slow rate. Both agents elicited a use-dependent decrease of peak I(Na) (3-10 microM), which probably resulted from a slowing of both fast and slow rates of recovery from inactivation. In contrast, the (R)-enantiomer of RWJ 24517 did not induce a steady-state component I(Na) or increase peak I(Na) up to 10 microM, but it decreased peak I(Na) at 30 microM. The (R)-enantiomer displayed little use-dependent reduction of I(Na) during trains of repetitive pulses and had no effect on rates of inactivation or recovery from inactivation. These actions of the racemate and the (S)-stereoisomer to slow inactivation and to prolong both Na(+) influx and action potential duration may contribute to the positive inotropic actions of these agents because the resulting accumulation of intracellular Na(+) would increase intracellular Ca(2+) via Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchange.  (+info)

Drug therapy against a transplantable guinea pig leukemia. (8/449)

The effects of six clinically active drugs were tested against a ttansplantable leukemia in inbred strain 2 guinea pigs. Cytoxan and 6-mercaptopurine were found to elicit a therqeutic response against this leukemia based on complete tumor regression of the established tumor as well as a substantial increase in survival time. Animals dying in the untreated control and drug-treated groups revealed typical generalized lymphoblastic leukemia. However, only Cytoxan-treated animals that had relapsed exhibited central nervous system involvement originating from the arachnoid membrane. A tow-drug combination of Cytoxan and 1-(2-chloroethyl)-3(trans-4-methylcyclohexyl)-1-nitrosourea was found not only to prevent meningeal leukemia development but also to result in "curing" all animals from their leukemia. This observation was based on a complete clinical, hematological, and histopathological "remission" period up to 176 days. The administration of 1-(2-chloroethyl)-3-(trans-4-methylcyclohexyl)-1-nitrosourea alone was observed not only to control the systemic leukemia but also to prevent central nervous system involvement. No relapses occurred after the first "remission" period was achieved in the groups of animals that received 1-(2-chloroethyl)-3-(trans-4-methylcyclohexyl)-1-nitrosourea.  (+info)

Do not use mercaptopurine if you are pregnant. It could harm the unborn baby. You should not use mercaptopurine if you are allergic to it, or if you have ever used mercaptopurine or thioguanine (Tabloid) and they were not effective in treating your condition. Some people using mercaptopurine have developed a rare fast-growing type of lymphoma (cancer). This condition affects the liver, spleen, and bone marrow, and it can be fatal. This has occurred mainly in teenagers and young adults using mercaptopurine or similar medicines to treat Crohns disease or ulcerative colitis. Call your doctor at once if you have any of the following symptoms: fever, night sweats, itching, loss of appetite, weight loss, tiredness, feeling full after eating only a small amount, pain in your upper stomach that may spread to your shoulder, nausea, easy bruising or bleeding, pale skin, feeling light-headed or short of breath, rapid heart rate, dark urine, clay-colored stools, or jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). ...
On April 28, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a 20 mg/mL oral suspension of mercaptopurine (Purixan) indicated for the treatment of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) as part of a combination regimen. Successive clinical trials have demonstrated that mercaptopurine contributes to successful maintenance therapy and improved survival of patients with ALL.. This approval was based on a clinical pharmacology study that assessed the bioequivalence of mercaptopurine tablets with that of mercaptopurine oral suspension in a healthy adult population.. New Formulation. The drug was originally approved in 1953 and has been commercially available as a 50-mg tablet. However, body surface area dosing and dose adjustments are not easily accomplished with the 50-mg tablet, and tablets are not an ideal dosage form of medication for children less than 6 years old. Ad hoc local formulations compounded in pharmacies are commonly used, and 50-mg tablets are often split to provide ...

Several published studies indicate that patients with reduced TPMT or NUDT15 activity receiving usual doses of mercaptopurine, accumulate excessive cellular concentrations of active 6-TGNs, and are at higher risk for severe myelosuppression. In a study of 1028 children with ALL, the approximate tolerated mercaptopurine dosage for patients with TPMT and/or NUDT15 deficiency on mercaptopurine maintenance therapy (as a percentage of the planned dosage) was as follows: heterozygous for either TPMT or NUDT15, 50-90%; heterozygous for both TPMT and NUDT15, 30-50%; homozygous for either TPMT or NUDT15, 5-10%. Approximately 0.3% (1:300) of patients of European or African ancestry have two loss-of-function alleles of the TPMT gene and have little or no TPMT activity (homozygous deficient or poor metabolizers), and approximately 10% of patients have one loss-of-function TPMT allele leading to intermediate TPMT activity (heterozygous deficient or intermediate metabolizers).

Thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) deficiency is a condition in which patients treated with standard doses of azathioprine (AZA, Imuran), 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP, Purinethol), or 6-thioguanine (6-TG, Thioguanine Tabloid) may develop life-threatening myelosuppression or severe hematopoietic toxicity. The metabolic conversion of AZA, 6-MP, or 6-TG to purine nucleotides and the subsequent incorporation of these nucleotides into DNA play an important role in both the therapeutic efficacy and the toxicity of these drugs. A competitive catabolic route for the metabolism of thiopurines is catalyzed by the TPMT enzyme, which inactivates them by thiomethylation. A balance must be established between these competing metabolic pathways so that: 1) sufficient amounts of drug are converted to the nucleotide to act as an antimetabolite and 2) the antimetabolite levels do not become so high as to cause potentially lethal bone marrow suppression.. TPMT deficiency is an autosomal recessive condition with an ...
The evolution of perianal lesions during treatment was analyzed retrospectively. The team considered patients who had a clear anatomic improvement and who did not develop any perianal complications as responders.. The team found that after 3 years, the cumulative probabilities of remaining free of perianal complications and achieving a clear anatomic improvement were 0.47 and 0.4, respectively. They determined that 29% of patients were responders to azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine therapy. The doctors identified the absence of fistula, duration of perianal disease shorter than 22 months, and age ≥40 years at inclusion as factors associated with response to therapy. There was no correlation between the response of perianal lesions and the achievement of intestinal remission with azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine.. Dr Thierry Lecomtes team concluded, One-third of patients with perianal lesions of Crohns disease demonstrated a clear improvement during azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine therapy. ...
The therapeutic role of 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) and azathioprine (AZA) remains controversial due to their perceived relatively slow-acting effect and adverse effects. An updated meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the efficacy of these agents for the maintenance of remission in quiescent Crohns disease. To assess the efficacy of AZA and 6-MP for maintenance of remission in quiescent Crohns disease. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library from inception to June 30, 2015. Randomized controlled trials of oral azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine compared to placebo or active therapy involving adult patients (, 18 years) with quiescent Crohns disease were considered for inclusion.

The following drug interactions were observed in some patients undergoing treatment with oral allopurinol. Although the pattern of use for oral allopurinol includes longer term therapy, particularly for gout and renal calculi, the experience gained may be relevant.. Mercaptopurine/Azathioprine: Allopurinol inhibits the enzymatic oxidation of mercaptopurine and azathioprine to 6-thiouric acid. This oxidation, which is catalyzed by xanthine oxidase, inactivates mercaptopurine. In patients receiving mercaptopurine (Purinethol) or azathioprine (Imuran), the concomitant administration of 300-600 mg of allopurinol per day will require a reduction in dose to approximately one-third to one-fourth of the usual dose of mercaptopurine or azathioprine. Subsequent adjustment of doses of mercaptopurine or azathioprine should be made on the basis of therapeutic response and the appearance of toxic effects.. Dicumarol: It has been reported that allopurinol prolongs the half-life of the anticoagulant, dicumarol. ...
Introduction: 6-Mercaptopurine (6MP) is an important chemotherapeutic drug in the conventional treatment of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). It is catabolized to 6-thiouric acid (6TUA) through 8-hydroxo-6-mercaptopurine (8OH6MP) or 6-thioxanthine (6TX) intermediates. Methods: High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is usually used to determine the contents of therapeutic drugs, metabolites and other important biomedical analytes in biological samples. In the present study, the multivariate calibration methods, partial least squares (PLS-1) and principle component regression (PCR) have been developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of 6MP and its oxidative metabolites (6TUA, 8OH6MP and 6TX) without analyte separation in spiked human plasma. Mixtures of 6MP, 8-8OH6MP, 6TX and 6TUA have been resolved by PLS-1 and PCR to their UV spectra. Results: Recoveries (%) obtained for 6MP, 8-8OH6MP, 6TX and 6TUA were 94.5-97.5, 96.6-103.3, 95.1-96.9 and 93.4-95.8, respectively,

The thiopurine drugs are purine antimetabolites that are useful in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, autoimmune disorders (e.g., Crohn disease, rheumatoid arthritis), and organ transplant recipients. The thiopurine drugs, 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP), 6-thioguanine (6-TG), and azathioprine (AZA) are prodrugs that require intracellular activation to 6-thioguanine nucleotides (6-TGN). This activation is catalyzed by multiple enzymes. The cytotoxic effects of thiopurine drugs are achieved mainly through incorporation of 6-TGN into DNA and RNA. The pathway that leads to synthesis of active cytotoxic 6-TGN is in competition with inactivation pathways catalyzed by thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT). Evaluation of this pathway is important because the level of 6-TGN measured in red blood cells have been correlated with both thiopurine therapeutic efficacy and toxicity such as myelosuppression.. TPMT activity is inherited as a monogenic codominant trait, and variable TPMT activity is associated ...

Thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) is an enzyme that breaks down a class of drugs called thiopurines. TPMT tests are used to identify people at risk of developing severe side effects from thiopurine treatment.
Measurement of TPMT activity is encouraged prior to commencing the treatment of patients with thiopurine drugs such as azathioprine, 6-mercaptopurine and 6-thioguanine. Patients with low activity (10% prevalence) or especially absent activity (prevalence 0.3%) are at a heightened risk of drug-induced bone marrow toxicity due to accumulation of the unmetabolised drug. Reuther et al. found that about 5% of all thiopurine therapies will fail due to toxicity. This intolerant group could be anticipated by routine measurement of TPMT activity. There appears to be a great deal of variation in TPMT mutation, with ethnic differences in mutation types accounting for variable responses to 6MP.[9][12] Genetic variants of TPMT have also been associated with cisplatin-induced ototoxicity in children.[13] TPMT is now listed as a pharmacogenomic biomarker for adverse drug reactions to cisplatin by the FDA.[14] ...
1. The transport of 6-thioguanine and 6-mercaptopurine has been studied with isolated jejunal loops of mouse small intestine. H.p.l.c. was used to identify and quantify the thiopurines and their metabolites in the serosal secretions. 2. When the lumen of the intestinal loops contained either 6-thioguanine or 6-mercaptopurine at a concentration of 1 mmol/l, the concentration of unmetabolized drug in the serosal secretions reached a maximum of 0.13 ± 0.02 mmol/l (mean ± sem ). 3. Analysis of the serosal secretions from the perfusions with either of the drugs revealed the appearance of an unknown compound which had the characteristics of a thiopurine and the same time course of appearance as the unmetabolized drug. Thus 6-thioguanine and 6-mercaptopurine are significantly metabolized during absorption in mouse intestine. 4. The unknown compound was identified as 6-thiouric acid, and with 1 mmol/l 6-thioguanine or 6-mercaptopurine in the lumen the concentration of this metabolite in the serosal ...
Approximately 0.3% of the population has a profound genetic deficiency of thiopurine methyltransferase, the major route for detoxification of thiopurines used in immunosuppression and oncology.. These patients develop severe marrow suppression if given usual doses of a thiopurine drug or prodrug. The condition is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, and about 11% of the population are carriers.. Carriers may also show decreased tolerance to the drugs, although not as severely as the severely deficient patients.. ...
The anticancer drug 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) inhibits purine synthesis and acts as an antiproliferative agent by interfering with protein, RNA and DNA activity and promoting apoptosis. modifies human being leukemic Capital t cells rate of metabolism with potential antiproliferative results. purine activity [1C6, 10]which can be important for lymphocyte expansion because these cells rely even more on path than on the repair path [5, 16, 17]. 6-MP may inhibit biosynthesis of ATP PX-866 and GTP PX-866 [18] also. In addition, latest proof shows that 6-MP prevents the phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3E) / mammalian focus on of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling path [8], recommending that these medicines might get in the way with metabolic checkpoints and effect metabolic reprogramming in regular Capital t cells and tumor [19].

The best-studied example of genetic variation within a DME and its effect on toxicity is the interaction between variants in thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) and toxicity with the thiopurine antimetabolites 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) and 6-thioguanine (6-TG). 6-MP is used as an immunosuppressant for some nonmalignant conditions, such as inflammatory bowel diseases (12, 13), and is one of the backbones of treatment in the most frequent pediatric malignancy, acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL (14)]. The thiopurines are prodrugs that are converted by multiple enzymes into thioguanine nucleotides (TGN), which are then incorporated into DNA. Inactivation of TGN occurs by 2 main mechanisms: oxidation by xanthine oxidase and methylation by TPMT. Xanthine oxidase activity is negligible in hematopoietic tissues, so these cells rely on TPMT for TGN inactivation (15).. Struck by the wide interpatient variability in both response and toxicity observed in patients treated with 6-MP, Weinshilboum and Sladek ...
Thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) testing is important in the detection of individuals with altered TPMT activity who are at risk for severe hematopoietic toxicity when taking thiopurine medications (6-mercaptopurine, azathioprine, and 6-thioguanine). This webinar will outline the different tests to detect patients who are at risk for thiopurine-related toxicity and the advantages of each test. It is intended to educate clinicians and increase their confidence when treating patients with thiopurine medications.. ...

An antimetabolite antineoplastic agent with immunosuppressant properties. It interferes with nucleic acid synthesis by inhibiting purine metabolism and is used, usually in combination with other drugs, in the treatment of or in remission maintenance programs for leukemia. [PubChem]
BACKGROUND: The activity of the human enzyme thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) varies greatly between individuals because of genetic polymorphism. TPMT is involved in the detoxification and activation of thiopurines such as 6-mercaptopurine, 6-thioguanine, and azathioprine. These drugs are used in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and inflammatory bowel disease. A total of 29 sequence variants have been identified so far in the TPMT gene. However, most of these variants are rare and not fully characterized. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this study, we describe the identification and characterization of a novel TPMT sequence variant, originally found in a Swedish man of Italian origin. Sequencing of the variable number tandem repeats region of the TPMT promoter and exons III-X revealed a T-to-C transition at nucleotide 611, causing an amino acid substitution from isoleucine to threonine at amino acid 204, positioned in an α-helix, approximately 16 Å from the active site. This new ...

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the 3-year survival rate in elderly patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia (Ph)-negative acute
The in vitro transformation responses of lymphocytes to stimulation with phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and smallpox vaccine (vaccinia) were studied in cells from 20 patients with ocular and malignant diseases receiving chemotherapy. The transformation of lymphocytes to lymphoblast-like cells was reduced from 71% in the pretreatment PHA-stimulated cultures to 1.5% during therapy. The response to vaccinia was reduced from 12% before therapy to 0% during therapy. The mitotic indices fell from 1.5% (PHA) and 1.2% (vaccinia) to 0% for each during therapy.. Intensive combination therapy with parenteral 6-mercaptopurine and methotrexate, with or without prednisolone completely abolished transformation after 3 days of treatment. Substantial recovery occurred within 3 days after the end of therapy. Nontoxic therapy with methotrexate or 6-mercaptopurine which did not induce leukopenia took 2-5 weeks to cause maximum suppression.. The abnormality seemed due to intrinsic damage to the lymphocytes and not to ...

1. The formation of adenosine 5-phosphate, guanosine 5-phosphate and inosine 5-phosphate from [8-(14)C]adenine, [8-(14)C]guanine and [8-(14)C]hypoxanthine respectively in the presence of 5-phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate and an extract from Ehrlich ascites-tumour cells was assayed by a method involving liquid-scintillation counting of the radioactive nucleotides on diethylaminoethylcellulose paper. The results obtained with guanine were confirmed by a spectrophotometric assay which was also used to assay the conversion of 6-mercaptopurine and 5-phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate into 6-thioinosine 5-phosphate in the presence of 6-mercaptopurine phosphoribosyltransferase from these cells. 2. At pH 7.8 and 25 degrees the Michaelis constants for adenine, guanine and hypoxanthine were 0.9 mum, 2.9 mum and 11.0 mum in the assay with radioactive purines; the Michaelis constant for guanine in the spectrophotometric assay was 2.6 mum. At pH 7.9 the Michaelis constant for 6-mercaptopurine was 10.9 mum. 3. 25 mum-6
This study examined thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) and the relationship to thioguanine nucleotides (TGN) and methylthioinosine monophosphate (meTIMP) in a large Swedish patient population. The current hypothesis is that the cytotoxic effects of thiopurine drugs are mediated by the incorporation of TGN into DNA. The authors assayed the TPMT activity in red blood cells from 1151 subjects and the concentrations of TGN (n = 602) and meTIMP (n = 593) from patients treated with thiopurine drugs. The TPMT frequency distribution in both adults and children showed some differences from what had been found in unselected general populations. Children had lower median TPMT activity than adults (12.0 versus 12.9 U/mL RBC, P < 0.001). Relative differences in both TGN formation [medians: normal TPMT, 1.3, intermediate TPMT, 3.3, low TPMT, 47.9 pmol/8 × 108 RBC per mg azathioprine (AZA), P < 0.001] and meTIMP formation (medians: normal TPMT, 13, intermediate TPMT, 7.3, low TPMT, 0 pmol/8 × 108 RBC per mg ...
The three thiopurine drugs azathioprine (AZA), 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) and 6-thioguanine (6-TG) are used to treat several diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). They are pro-drugs and are believed to act through the formation of thioguanine nucleotides (TGNs). Other important metabolites are the methylthioinosine nucleotides (meTINs). These metabolites are active in the white blood cells (WBCs).Most patients respond well to the thiopurine drugs but up to a third have to modify or discontinue their treatment due to adverse events or a lack of therapeutic effects. This could be caused by inter-patient variability in the metabolism of the drugs. Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of thiopurine nucleotides in red blood cells (RBCs) is used to guide treatment. Current routine assays measure the nucleotides after hydrolysation to nucleic bases and are therefore unable to distinguish between mono-, di-, and triphosphates. Recently it was shown that these assays failed to predict the ...

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) deficiency is a condition characterized by significantly reduced activity of an enzyme that helps the body process drugs called thiopurines. These drugs, which include 6-thioguanine, 6-mercaptopurine, and azathioprine, inhibit (suppress) the bodys immune system. Thiopurine drugs are used to treat some autoimmune disorders, including Crohn disease and rheumatoid arthritis, which occur when the immune system malfunctions. These drugs are also used to treat several forms of cancer, particularly cancers of blood-forming tissue (leukemias) and cancers of immune system cells (lymphomas). Additionally, thiopurine drugs are used in organ transplant recipients to help prevent the immune system from attacking the transplanted organ. A potential complication of treatment with thiopurine drugs is damage to the bone marrow (hematopoietic toxicity). Although this complication can occur in anyone who takes these drugs, people with TPMT ...
Azathioprine has been in use for decades as an immunosuppressant treatment for various autoimmune diseases. It is a prodrug of mercaptopurine, a substance that is subsequently metabolised by several alternative pathways, one of which involves the enzyme thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT). Some people have deficiency of TPMT because of genetic mutations. This has been widely said to occur in around 3 in 1,000 individuals;1 however, studies in recent years have suggested a prevalence of up to 6 in 1,000.2,3 These people are at great risk of developing severe, potentially life-threatening bone marrow toxicity when treated with conventional doses of azathioprine or mercaptopurine. It is possible to test patients for TPMT activity before starting treatment with these drugs. Here we review the evidence about such testing, and discuss whether it should be used for patients being considered for azathioprine therapy. ...
Why have I been started on this medicine? Azathioprine (AZAT) and mercaptopurine (MP) are two related medications used to control the immune defence system. Many inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients have been safely using them since the 1970s. Elion and Hitchings developed AZAT and MP in 1950s, going on to share the 1988 Nobel prize in Medicine. In Crohns and ulcerative colitis, the gastrointestinal immune system is often overactive. Decreasing this overactivity can help to prevent intestinal bleeding, loose motions, pain and other complications.. How long will I need to take it to feel better? These drugs usually work slowly. Results (ie. decreasing or getting off prednisone, good pain-relief or healing the bowel, fistula or abscess) happen usually by 2-6 months, so make sure to take your pills every day as directed and dont give up too early. Some get better faster (20% at 2 weeks) and others take longer (6 -12 months). AZAT/MP is usually given for up to 5 years and beyond if it is ...

Azathioprine is well absorbed following oral administration. Maximum serum radioactivity occurs at 1 to 2 hours after oral 35S-azathioprine and decays with a half-life of 5 hours. This is not an estimate of the half-life of azathioprine itself, but is the decay rate for all 35S-containing metabolites of the drug. Because of extensive metabolism, only a fraction of the radioactivity is present as azathioprine. Usual doses produce blood levels of azathioprine, and of mercaptopurine derived from it, which are low (,1 mcg/mL). Blood levels are of little predictive value for therapy since the magnitude and duration of clinical effects correlate with thiopurine nucleotide levels in tissues rather than with plasma drug levels. Azathioprine and mercaptopurine are moderately bound to serum proteins (30%) and are partially dialyzable. (See OVERDOSAGE).. Azathioprine is metabolized to 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP). Both compounds are rapidly eliminated from blood and are oxidized or methylated in erythrocytes ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Initiating Azathioprine for Crohns Disease. AU - Levesque, Barrett G.. AU - Loftus, Jr, Edward Vincent. PY - 2012/5. Y1 - 2012/5. N2 - Azathioprine (AZA) and 6-mercaptopurine are therapeutic options for patients with moderate to severe inflammatory Crohns disease. AZA has both a complex metabolism and potential for adverse events that can be clinically challenging. AZA has been shown to maintain remission and reduce corticosteroid use in patients with Crohns disease. There is heterogeneous thiopurine methyltransferase metabolism among patients, which has implications for clinical dosing and risk for adverse events. Routine thiopurine methyltransferase testing before the initiation of AZA will reduce early leukopenia and is mandatory to avoid potentially life-threatening myelotoxicity. Thiopurine metabolite assays may aid in the assessment of adherence and adverse events. Patients who do not respond to AZA therapy may benefit from the addition of biologic therapy or ...
Introduction Measuring azathioprine or mercaptopurine (AZA) metabolite levels 6-TGN and 6-MMPN allows identification of patients who are: 1. Non compliant with their medication, 2. On a sub-optimal doe, 3. On a supra-therapeutic dose, 4. Are preferentially metabolising azathioprine to methylated metabolites (6-MMPN:6-TGN ratio , 11).. Our own and others published data demonstrate that measuring metabolite levels in patients failing azathioprine therapy followed by appropriate changes in dosing and/or the addition of allopurinol (with 75% dose reduction in AZA) can result in clinical remission in the majority of patients 1. We report the outcome of the routine measurement of metabolite levels in patients treated with AZA who were in a clinical remission without side effects or abnormal liver function tests (LFTs).. ...

Result 64 individuals studied, median age 14 years. Underlying diagnoses were IBD (54/64) and other (10/64). 59 treated with AZA, 5 with 6-MP. 95 separate measurements were made. TPMT phenotype was measured in 51/64 patients,40/51 had normal phenotype, and 11/51 had heterozygous TPMT mutations. Initial 6-TGN levels were higher in heterozygotes (median levels 836 vs 328, p=0.001) at comparable doses of thiopurine (median 1.9 vs 2.2 mg/kg, p=0.11). On first measurement, only 30% patients had 6-TGN levels within therapeutic levels. 30% were subtherapeutic and 40% were supra-therapeutic. 9% had 6-TGN levels ,800. Toxicity occurred in 8 cases (9%). Leucopaenia (WBC,4) had a sensitivity of 12.5% in predicting supra-therapeutic 6-TGN levels. Concomitant use of 5-ASA did not significantly affect 6-TGN levels at comparable doses (median (6-TGN) 5-ASA 393 vs 451 no 5-ASA, p=0.26). In total, management was changed in 39 cases (41%). 6 cases of total non-compliance were exposed. 33/39 of these ...

Doctors have discovered that patients with a particular genetic variation are four times more likely to develop pancreatitis if they are prescribed a widely used group of drugs.. Clinicians at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Exeter Medical School have discovered that 17 per cent of patients who have two copies of a particular genetic marker are likely to go on to develop pancreatitis if they are prescribed thiopurine drugs. The drugs, which include azathioprine and mercaptopurine, are some of the most effective and most commonly used drugs to suppress the immune system in the treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis and after some organ transplants.. It has long been recognised that about four per cent of patients who are prescribed these drugs for IBD go on to develop pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas, which can be fatal. But in a study published in Nature Genetics, doctors have identified a group of patients whose ...
The research protocol extends for up to 3.5 months, during which the participant will attend 5 clinic visits at Shaare Zedek Medical Centre: screening visit, week 0, week 4, week 8 and week 12.. During the screening visit, all patients identified who meet the exclusion and inclusion criteria and who agree to participate in the study, will have their medical records reviewed for previous clinical or biochemical evidence of pancreatitis, both related, and unrelated to thiopurine use.. Patients will undergo a physical examination, baseline blood tests including measurement of lipase and/or amylase, liver biochemistry and fasting lipid profile. If not already tested, the patients TPMT activity will be tested. Participants will also have a baseline abdominal ultrasound to confirm normal anatomy and absence of cholelithiasis At week 0, if there are no clinical, biochemicals or ultrasound suggestions of pancreatitis, the participant will be commenced on an alternative thiopurine from what was used in ...

Methylation of MP by TPMT is a critical step in thiopurine metabolism. It was first noted in the 1980s that differences in TPMT activity help account for the variability in tolerance to thiopurines. Rare and common genetic polymorphisms influence enzyme function resulting in a trimodal population distribution of activity. In Caucasians, complete TPMT deficiency occurs in 1 in 300 individuals. Carriers of a deficiency-associated allele (heterozygotes) have around 50% enzyme activity and occur at an approximate frequency of 1 in 10 of the population.10 The majority of cases of TPMT deficiency (∼95%) are associated with three alleles, TPMT*2, TPMT*3A and TPMT*3C.11 The frequency of these variants depends on ethnicity with TPMT*3A being more common in Caucasian populations.12 Individuals with complete TPMT deficiency who receive standard doses of AZA or MP are highly likely to develop severe and potentially fatal myelosuppression. There is a small case series of patients with IBD treated with ...

A drug that is similar enough to a natural chemical to participate in a normal biochemical reaction in cells but different enough to interfere with the normal division and functions of cells. So named because the drug inhibits a normal metabolic process. Examples of antimetabolites include 6-mercaptopurine (6MP), methotrexate, and hydroxyurea. Anticancer drugs that closely resemble substances needed by cells for normal growth. The tumor cells uses the drug instead and starves for lack of proper substance. ...
Initial treatment is almost always with medication. There is no cure for Crohns disease, but medical therapy with one or more drugs provides a means to treat early Crohns disease and relieve its symptoms. The most common drugs prescribed are corticosteroids, such as prednisone and methylprednisolone, and various anti-inflammatory agents.. Other drugs occasionally used include 6-mercaptopurine and azathioprine, which are immunosuppressive. Metronidazole, an antibiotic with immune system effects, is frequently helpful in patients with anal disease.. In more advanced or complicated cases of Crohns disease, surgery may be recommended. Emergency surgery is sometimes necessary when complications, such as a perforation of the intestine, obstruction (blockage) of the bowel, or significant bleeding occur with Crohns disease. Other less urgent indications for surgery may include abscess formation, fistulas (abnormal communications from the intestine), severe anal disease or persistence of the ...
Children in remission from acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) must take 6-mercaptopurine (6MP) for 2 years to prevent disease reemergence; however, a study shows that an estimated 25% of children in remission are not taking this essential maintenance medication at least 90% of the time, tripling their relapse risk.

A recent study (ALT Ma et al. J Pediatr 2016; 179: 216-8) reaches a conclusion that questions the cost-effectiveness of pretreatment TPMT activity in pediatric patients. In my opinion, this retrospective study is ridiculous. Heres why: The authors examined thiopurine transmethyltransferase (TPMT level) in 228 children before starting a thiopurine. They found the following: Only 2…
In this article, we have presented evidence for the cellular uptake and GSH-mediated metabolism of the structurally novel prodrugs AVTG and AVTP to their parent thiopurines 6-TG and 6-MP, respectively. Furthermore, our results demonstrate that intracellular concentrations of 6-TG were higher after incubations with AVTG compared with cells incubated with 6-TG. Moreover, although the prodrugs exhibited cytotoxicity that was similar to or exceeded that of the parent thiopurines, the in vivo administration of the prodrugs did not lead to bone marrow toxicity as was observed after 6-TG administration.. Structurally, AVTG and AVTP are α, β-unsaturated conjugates of 6-TG and 6-MP, respectively. The α, β-unsaturated moiety allows the prodrugs to react with cellular nucleophiles to yield the parent thiopurine and a nucleophile-butenone conjugate. Our results show that this bioactivation is selectively mediated by sulfhydryl nucleophiles such as GSH. A similar mechanism of bioactivation has been ...
