Pertinent pharmacokinetics and methods for ameliorating the nephrotoxic effects are by: 6. Immunosuppressive agents are drugs that suppress the immune system and reduce the risk of rejection of foreign bodies such as transplant organs.

Different classes of immunosuppressive agents have different mechanism of action. Now immunosuppressive agents are used as cancer chemotherapy, in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and.

Antineoplastic agents can be administered by PO, IV, SC, IM, topical, intracavitary, intralesional, intravesicular, intrathecal, or intra-arterial routes. The route chosen depends on the individual agent and is determined by drug toxicity; location, size. Alkylating agents.

The alkylating agents used in immunotherapy are nitrogen mustards (cyclophosphamide), nitrosoureas, platinum compounds, and others. Cyclophosphamide (Baxter's Cytoxan) is probably the most potent immunosuppressive compound.

Cisplatin (cis-diamine-dichloroplatinum) functions primarily as a bifunctional alkylator but is included in the miscellaneous category because of its unusual structure. It is a platinum ion complexed to two chloride ions and two ammonium molecules.

The logarithmic growth of knowledge in this field has made it progressively more. Mercaptopurine (also referred to as 6-mercaptopurine or 6-MP) is a purine analogue that is effective both as an anticancer and an immunosuppressive agent, and is used to treat leukemia and autoimmune diseases as a corticosteroid-sparing agent.

Mercaptopurine therapy is associated with a high rate of serum aminotransferase elevations which can be accompanied. title = "Corticosteroids, cytotoxic agents, and infection", abstract = "Iatrogenic immunosuppression can be achieved using corticosteroids or noncorticosteroid a gents.

Although there is considerable overlap, noncorticosteroid immunosuppressants can be broadly divided into those that are primarily cytotoxic antineoplastic drugs and those that Author: Babafemi O Taiwo, Robert Leo Murphy.

Antineoplastic agents frequently disrupt replication at the cellular level by obstructing the synthesis of new genetic material or by causing irreversible damage to the DNA itself. While this affects both normal and malignant cells, normal cells have a greater ability to repair minor damage and continue living.

The increased weakness of malignant cells is exploited to achieve. Antineoplastic agents can be administered to patients alone or in combination with other antineoplastic drugs. They can also be given before, during or after a patient receives surgery or radiation therapy.

The treatment plan is disease-specific. It is important that patients receive treatment on schedule. Antineoplastic agents travel the body. L ANTINEOPLASTIC AND IMMUNOMODULATING AGENTS.

Cyclophosphamide is an alkylating agent used in the treatment of several forms of cancer including leukemias, lymphomas and breast cancer. Cyclophosphamide therapy is associated with minor transient serum enzyme elevations and has been linked to rare cases of acute liver injury.

In addition, when given in high doses as a part of a myeloablative therapy. Paclitaxel, a clinically proven antineoplastic agent, also has potent immunosuppressive properties in rodent organ transplantation.
