Transient neurologic dysfunction associated with high-dose methotrexate and citrovorum factor rescue (MTX-CF) has been previously reported. At the biochemical level, there are at least two important pathways in central nervous system metabolism which might be disturbed by MTX: MTX may deplete the cell of the de novo synthesis of purine nucleotides and thymidylate through its action on dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR), and also inhibit dihydropteridine reductase (DHPR), an enzyme maintaining the… Expand
The Effect Of Ascorbic Acid On Protection Of Hepatic Injury Consequence Effective Isomers Of Pentanedioic Acid In Rats
Pentanedioic acid derivatives such as Methotrexate are anti-neoplastic agents and are widely used in treatment of auto immune disorders and malignant diseases, but their use is limited because ofExpand
Urinary Biopterin Levels and Blood Dihydropteridine Reductase Activities in Patients with Thyroid and Breast Disorders
Abstract Biopterin as a stable metabolite is produced by oxidation of 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4). It is known that many diseases may cause changes in BH4 concentration and/or dihydropteridineExpand

These consensus guidelines will help to harmonize clinical practice and to standardize and improve care for BH4 deficient patients. Expand
Evaluation of Tetrahydrobiopterin Pathway in Operating Room Workers: Changes in Biopterin Status and Tryptophan Metabolism
It can be claimed that enhanced biopterin and diminished kynurenine levels may play a triggering role in disruption of metabolic events in operating room personnel. Expand
Protective Effect of Ca- Folinate and Ginseng in Male Rats Treated with Methotrexate
The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of neuron and hepatotoxicity of Methotrexate (MTX) and prophylactic response to Ca- Folinate (Ca-F) and Ginseng (G). Forty two of male albinoExpand
The challenges of managing coexistent disorders with phenylketonuria: 30 cases.
Investigation for co-existent disorders when the clinical history is not completely consistent with phenylketonuria is essential and Integrating care of a second condition with PKU management is challenging. Expand
