Genetic polymorphisms of the adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette transporters (ABCC2, ABCG2) and irinotecan toxicity in cancer patients.

Abstract

13096 Background: Irinotecan is subject to substantial interindividual variability in pharmacokinetic and the occurrence of unpredictably severe toxicities of leukopenia or diarrhea. These toxicities have been reported to be associated with increased levels of SN-38, the active metabolite of irinotecan. ABCC2 and ABCG2, members of adenosine triphosphate… (More)
