Busulfan is a potent cytotoxic drug that causes PROFOUND MYELOSUPPRESSION at the recommended dosage. It should be administered under the supervision of a qualified physician who is experienced in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, the use of cancer chemotherapeutic drugs and the management of patients with severe pancytopenia.

      • Carcinogenicity: Secondary cancers, especially leukaemias, lymphomas and histocytic tumours appear with greater frequency many years after the use of cytotoxic drugs. • Hyperuricaemia • Individual drugs may produce specific adverse effects, e.g. neuropathy by vincristine, Cardiomyopathy by doxorubicin, cystitis and alopecia by. 6) Alkylating Agents: Alkylating agents involve reactions with guanine in DNA. These drugs add methyl or other alkyl groups onto molecules where they do not belong. This in turn inhibits their correct utilization by base pairing and causes a miscoding of DNA.

They are most effective for treating slow-growing cancers such as leukemia and solid tumors, but are also used in the treatment of breast, lung, ovarian, and prostate cancers; lymphomas.

Alkylating Drugs. Alkylating drugs are used to treat brain tumors, melanoma, Hodgkin's disease, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, neuroblastoma, leukemia, multiple myeloma, retinoblastoma, and prostate cancer.

They work by inhibiting cancer cell growth and slowing it down. An alkylating antineoplastic agent is an alkylating agent used in cancer treatment that attaches an alkyl group (C n H 2n+1) to DNA.

[1] The alkyl group is attached to the guanine base of DNA, at the number 7 nitrogen atom of the purine ring. Full text Full text is available as a scanned copy of the original print version.

The five nitrosourea chemotherapeutic agents share a common mechanism of action for their cytotoxicity and antitumor activity, which result from their nonenzymatic decomposition to pro‑ duce products with alkylating and carbamoylating activities (LemoineFile Size: KB.

Most evidence concerning nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as piroxicam suggests that they have cancer-preventive properties, particularly regarding colorectal cancer (46, 47).

However, piroxicam did not show either cytostatic or cytotoxic effects on certain human skin melanoma cells, which were found for some other by: Schmähl D.

The mechanism by which cytostatic agents suppress certain stages of cell division vary. For example, alkylating agents, such as embichin (mechlorethamine hydrochloride) and cyclophosphamide, react directly with DNA.

Antimetabolites suppress metabolism in the cells and compete with normal metabolites. Cytostasis is an important prerequisite for structured multicellular organisms. Without regulation of cell growth and division only unorganized heaps of cells would be possible. Chemotherapy of cancer, treatment of skin diseases and treatment of infections are common use cases of cytostatic drugs.

Chlormethine undergoes rapid non-enzymatic degradation reactions in aqueous solution. Thus, unchanged chlormethine is undetectable in the blood within minutes after intravenous administration. Less than % of an intravenous dose is excreted unchanged in the urine (9 A).

Besides dose-limiting myelosuppression and gastrointestinal adverse. The alkylating agent dose (AAD) and the cyclophosphamide equivalent dose (CED) risk-stratification systems allow calculation of risk. Using the AAD, a score of 1, 2 or 3 is given for the cumulative dose of alkylating agent that falls within the first, second or third tertile, respectively.

Get this from a library! The Ambivalence of Cytostatic Therapy. [Ekkehard Grundmann; Rudolf W J Gross] -- E. GRUNDMANN The question as to whether cytostatic drugs might be carcinogenic has been presented and discussed in three experimental studies.

The most extensive in vestigations were by J.H.Alkylating agents were one of the earliest classes of drugs used to treat cancer, beginning in the ’s. Cancer cells are sensitive to DNA damage. Alkylating agents work by reacting with the proteins that bond together to form the very delicate double helix structure of a DNA molecule, adding an alkyl group to some or all of them.Alkylating drugs (ADs) belonging to the nitrogen mustard family are commonly used as cytostatic and immunosuppressive agents.

Our previous in vitro studies demonstrated that in the case of gradual dose decrease, the number of targets for alkylation in the cell is also reduced and the drug switches from brutal cytostatic to cell growth modifier.
