Hypersensitivity reactions to deoxycoformycin


, : Hypersensitivity reactions to deoxycoformycin. Cancer Chemotherapy & Pharmacology 23(3): 173-175

Deoxycoformycin (dCF) is a promising new antineoplastic agent in the treatment of lymphoid malignancies, particularly hairy cell leukemia (HCL). Skin toxicity in the form of a maculopapular eruption has previously been reported but has not clearly been associated with idiosyncratic reactions. We present five cases of dCF-related hypersensitivity reactions in which additional systemic manifestations indicated an allergic etiology. The value of dCF in treating lymphoid neoplasms suggests that further study of the treatment of these reactions is indicated.

Bile acid deficiency is overcome by induction of oxysterol 7alpha-hydroxylase. Past experiments and current paradigms of cholesterol homeostasis suggest that cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase plays a crucial role in sterol metabolism by controlling the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids. Consistent with this conclusion,...
