Time and sequence dependence of hydroxyurea in combination with gemcitabine in human KB cells.


Gemcitabine (Gem) is a deoxycytidine analogue whose active metabolite, dFdCTP, blocks DNA elongation and has a cytotoxic effect. Hydroxyurea (HU) is an S-phase specific inhibitor of ribonucleotide reductase (RR) with a broad spectrum of antitumor effects. We report here that low-dose HU enhanced the activity of Gem in a time- and sequence-dependent manner… (More)
