The importance of p53-independent apoptosis in the intestinal toxicity induced by raltitrexed (ZD1694, Tomudex): genetic differences between BALB/c and DBA/2 mice.


The thymidylate synthase inhibitor raltitrexed (ZD1694, Tomudex) induces greater intestinal toxicity, manifested as diarrhea and weight loss, in BALB/c than in DBA/2 mice. No convincing pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic reason for this strain difference has been established. We have investigated whether this strain difference in response to raltitrexed is… (More)
