Dược Lực Học :
Eniluracil is an orally active dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) inhibitor, designed to enhance activity of chemotaxic agents. It is under investigation by Adherex, under license from GlaxoSmithKline, for the treatment of cancer in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU).
Cơ Chế Tác Dụng :
Eniluracil, which was previously under development by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), is being developed by Adherex to enhance the therapeutic value and effectiveness of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), one of the world’s most widely-used oncology agents. 5-FU is widely used in the U.S. and is often first or second line therapy for a variety of cancers including colorectal, breast, gastric, head and neck, ovarian and basal cell cancer of the skin. Eniluracil could improve 5-FU by increasing its effectiveness, reducing its side effects and/or making it orally available. Eniluracil has received Orphan Drug status from the FDA for the treatment of hepatocellular cancer in combination with fluoropyrimidines (including 5-FU).
Normally, 5-FU is rapidly broken down in the body by an enzyme known as dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD). Eniluracil irreversibly inhibits DPD, thereby substantially slowing the breakdown of 5-FU and prolonging exposure of the tumor cells to the drug.
Chỉ Định :
For the treatment of cancer in combination with 5-fluorouracil.
