[The influence of allopurinol on purine- and pyrimidinesynthesis (author's transl)].

Abstract

Allopurinol inhibits xanthinoxydase. This results in a decrease of the serum and urinary uric acid. Simultaneously the renal excretion of hypoxanthine and xanthine increases. In most patients, however, the decrease of urinary uric acid is not completely replaced by the increase of oxypurines. This is attributed to an additional inhibition of de novo purine… (More)
