Drugs have been analyzed by segments such as angiogenesis inhibitor, EGFR inhibitor, kinase inhibitor, microtubule stabilizer, folate antimetabolites
, and PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor.
Isofol's lead clinical candidate, Modufolin, is predicted to improve the outlook for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment with a range of antimetabolites
are classified according to the substances with which they interfere and include the folic acid antagonist Methotrexate, pyrimidine antagonists such as 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU), and purine antagonists such as 6-Mercaptopurine.
congenital immunodeficiency, HIV infection, leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, Hodgkin disease, generalized malignancy, or organ or bone marrow transplantation); or chemotherapy with alkylating agents, antimetabolites
, or long-term systemic corticosteroids.
The growth spurt will be fueled by the development of new drugs with fewer side effects and prophylactic uses of acute immunosuppressive therapies such as novel antimetabolites
, monoclonal, and polyclonal antibodies, which will increase the success of transplants, the company reports.
He starts with Paul Ehrlich's antitreponemal arsenicals and ends with the antisense agents now in early clinical trials for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and cancer, covering in the process the development of antibacterial and antiviral agents, vaccines, antimetabolites
, and hormone-based antineoplastic agents.
For caregivers and their patients, the therapeutic area that is at the forefront of attempts to mitigate exposure to cytotoxic drugs is clinical oncology, a field that - in spite of promising new drugs based on therapeutic antibodies - continues to rely heavily on antineoplastics, a class that includes alkylating agents and antimetabolites
, to treat a wide range of cancers.
brand) or antimetabolites
for any medical conditions; history of crossed eyes; previous corneal, intraocular surgery, LASIK or refractive surgery; family history of degenerative corneal disease; and history of inflammation of the eye.
Isofol's lead clinical candidate, Modufolin, is expected to improve the outlook for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment with a range of antimetabolites
Contributing to this anxiety are warnings in the drug's label that it "can cause fetal harm" when used in pregnancy, and the fact that azathioprine and 6-MP are purine antimetabolites
The bulk of the work consists of reviews of the characteristics and uses of the different types of drugs and chemical and biological agents important to the field, including antifolates, cytidine analogues, purine antimetabolites
, bleomycin, antitumor antibiotics, asparaginase, bisphosphonates, inhibitors of tumor angiogenesis, interferons, and interleukins, to cite a few.
In contrast, 13% of the patients who received antimetabolites
such as methotrexate, 5-fluorouracil, and cytarabine, developed restenosis.
Surgeons began to find success with purine antimetabolites
and with antilymphocytic globulin, developed by an upstart ex-football player named John Najarian.
As a potential future alternative to market leading antimetabolites
, RX-3117 can be given by oral administration to potentially treat solid tumors.
