Summary of Clinical Use
Used in the treatment of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia in adult patients.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
The active metabolite is believed to be 2-fluoro-ara-ATP, which appears to act, at least in part, by inhibiting DNA polymerase α, ribonucleotide reductase and DNA primase. This combination of actions inhibits DNA synthesis and leads to cell death.
