  • Combinations of thymidine and inosine (ranging from 0 to 7.5 mg/hr) were co-administered during a 72-hr continuous i.v. infusion of 3 micrograms/hr methotrexate in normal and P388 solid tumor-bearing DBA/2 mice. Methotrexate alone was lethal to all normal mice. Inosine at 1.0-7.5 mg/hr could reverse toxicity up to 100% while thymidine at 0.5-7.5 mg/hr was less effective (less than or equal to 86% survival). Combinations of the nucleosides averted toxicity more effectively than either compound… CONTINUE READING
