Summary of Clinical Use
Used to treat pleural mesothelioma and non-small cell lung cancer.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Inhibition of the enzymatic activity of thymidylate synthase reduces the synthesis of precursor pyrimidine nucleotides. This prevents the formation of DNA and RNA and subsequently results in cell death.
