Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects Click here for help
5-fluorouracil intereferes with DNA and RNA synthesis. The primary effect is on DNA synthesis, where the fluoroacil mimics normal pyrimidines, and prevents their incorporation into DNA during the S phase of the cell cycle, thus initiating cell death.
