BACKGROUND: Early-onset inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is generally aggressive, with a high probability of complications and need of surgery. Despite the introduction of highly effective biological drugs, treatment with azathioprine continues to be important even for early-onset IBD; however, in these patients azathioprine response seems to be reduced. This study evaluated azathioprine doses, metabolite concentrations, and their associations with patients' age in children with IBD treated at 6 tertiary pediatric referral centers...

BACKGROUND: A liquid formulation of 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (Purixan®) based on bioavailability (BA) data from healthy adults. We examined the pharmacokinetics (PK) and BA of 6-MP in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) comparing a marketed tablet, two extemporaneously prepared liquid formulations, and data from the approved liquid formulation. METHODS: Twenty-two children (6-17 years) participated in a randomized two-way, crossover study of two cohorts...

Individualized treatment is of special importance in oncology because the drugs used for chemotherapy have a very narrow therapeutic index. Pharmacogenetics may contribute substantially to clinical routine for optimizing cancer treatment to limit toxic effects while maintaining efficacy. This review presents the usefulness of pharmacogenetic tests for some key applications: dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD) genotyping for fluoropyrimidine (5-fluorouracil, capecitabine), UDP glucuronosylstransferase (UGT1A1) for irinotecan and thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) for thiopurine drugs...

Thiopurines (TPDs) are first-line drugs in treating neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD). Thiopurine S-methyltransferase activity (TPMT), a major determinant of TPDs toxicity, was suggested to be evaluated before TPDs treatment by using 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) and 6-thioguanine (6-TG) as substrate. However, the equivalent of the two substrates in TPMT activity evaluation was unknown, and alternative substrate was required in TPMT activity evaluation in patients who were already taking 6-MP or 6-TG...

The enzyme-substrate complex is inherently transient, rendering its detection difficult. In our framework, IsoLAIT (Isotope-Labeled, Activity-based Identification and Tracking), designed for bisubstrate systems, the common substrate, such as S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet) for methyltransferases, is replaced by an analogue (e.g., S-adenosyl-L-vinthionine) that, as a probe, creates a tightly bound [enzyme*substrate-probe] complex upon catalysis by thiopurine-S-methyltransferase (TPMT, EC 2.1.1.67). Then, this persistent complex is identified by native mass spectrometry from the cellular milieu without separation...

Thiopurine drugs are commonly used in immune diseases and to a lesser extent, in transplant rejection prophylaxis: however interindividual variability in drug response and in the occurrence of adverse events is observed. Genetic variation in thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) doesn't completely explain the occurrence of all adverse events and drug response variability. The potential implication of other enzymes involved in thiopurine metabolism, such as ITPA, has been investigated over the last decade but little data is available on inosine 5'-monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) in patients treated with thiopurine drugs...

We describe the case of a pediatric patient on azathioprine therapy with previously undiagnosed homozygote thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) deficiency, resulting in myelotoxic thiopurine metabolite levels. The patient was successfully treated with a very low azathioprine dose of 50 mg once a week (4% of standard dose), guided by frequent thiopurine metabolite measurement and a close clinical surveillance. We demonstrate that azathioprine therapy still might be an effective and safe therapeutic option in pediatric thiopurine S-methyltransferase-deficient IBD patients...

Hepatotoxicity is a known toxicity to treatment of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Hepatotoxicity occurs during maintenance therapy and is caused by metabolites of 6-Mercaptopurine (6 MP) and Methotrexate (MTX). Our objective was to investigate the association between alanine aminotransferases (ALAT) levels and relapse rate. We included 385 patients enrolled in the NOPHO ALL-92 protocol. Data on ALAT levels, 6 MP and MTX doses, cytotoxic MTX/6 MP metabolites, and thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) activity were prospectively registered...

BACKGROUND: High-quality data on the management of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) are scarce. Despite published guidelines, management of AIH is still expert based rather than evidence based. AIM: To survey expert hepatologists, asking each to describe their practices in the management of patients with AIH. METHODS: A survey questionnaire was distributed to members of the International AIH Group. The questionnaire consisted of four clinical scenarios on different presentations of AIH...

BACKGROUND: Hepatotoxicity, gastrointestinal complaints and general malaise are common limiting adverse reactions of azathioprine and mercaptopurine in IBD patients, often related to high steady-state 6-methylmercaptopurine ribonucleotide (6-MMPR) metabolite concentrations. AIM: To determine the predictive value of 6-MMPR concentrations 1 week after treatment initiation (T1) for the development of these adverse reactions, especially hepatotoxicity, during the first 20 weeks of treatment...

Thiopurine-related hematotoxicity in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and inflammatory bowel diseases has been linked to genetically defined variability in thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) activity. While gene testing of TPMT is being clinically implemented, it is unclear if additional genetic variation influences TPMT activity with consequences for thiopurine-related toxicity. To examine this possibility, we performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of red blood cell TPMT activity in 844 Estonian individuals and 245 pediatric ALL cases...

Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a relatively common cause of morbidity and mortality. Many factors can contribute to ADRs, including genetics. The degree to which genetics contributes to ADRs is not entirely clear and varies by drug, as well as the type of ADR. Pharmacogenetics and, more recently, pharmacogenomics have been applied to the field of ADRs for both predictable ADRs and hypersensitivity drug reactions. Evaluations for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and thiopurine S-methyltransferase are commonplace clinical tests to reduce hematologic problems associated with drugs, such as dapsone and azathioprine, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Treating inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) using thiopurines is effective; however, a high rate of adverse effects and lack of efficacy limit its use. Retrospective studies have suggested that treatment with low-dose thiopurines in combination with allopurinol is associated with higher remission rates and lower incidence of adverse events. AIM: To compare the rates of clinical remission and the rates of adverse events in IBD patients treated with either standard treatment with azathioprine or low-dose azathioprine in combination with allopurinol...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Few studies exist on the frequency of thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) mutation in patients from Southern Europe. We aimed to evaluate the frequency of TPMT mutation in a homogeneous Sicilian cohort of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), autoimmune and hematological disorders, the rate of thiopurine-related adverse events, and its association with the TPMT genotype. RESULTS: Among 105 patients with IBD, 45 with autoimmune disease, and 34 with hematologic diseases, the homozygous TPMT variant genotype was found in one patient only (0...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the profile of thiopurine transmethyltransferase (TPMT) enzyme activities in children and discuss the utility of measuring TPMT levels before commencing azathioprine therapy. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study in a single pediatric center of all patients who had TPMT enzyme assay measured during a 3-year period before the start of azathioprine therapy. Patients' TPMT enzyme activities were classified as normal (26-50 pmol/h/mgHb), intermediate (10-25 pmol/h/mgHb), and deficient (<10 pmol/h/mgHb)...

BACKGROUND: Thiopurine-induced leukopenia is the most common dangerous adverse event in Asians. NUDT15 R139C was recently proposed to be a promising biomarker for leukopenia with thiopurine therapy in Asians, but this has not been replicated in the Chinese population. AIM: To investigate the influence of NUDT15 R139C, thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT), 6-TGN and 6-MMPR on thiopurine-induced leukopenia in Chinese patients with Crohn's disease. METHODS: Clinical and epidemiological characteristics were reviewed from medical records...

Cancer pharmacogenetics usually considers tumor-specific targets. However, hereditary genetic variants may interfere with the pharmacokinetics of antimetabolites and other anti-cancer drugs, which may lead to severe adverse events. Areas covered: Here, the impact of hereditary genes considered in drug labels such as thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT), UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UTG1A1) and dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPYD) are discussed with respect to guidelines of the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC)...

BACKGROUND: Interindividual variability in thiopurine-related toxicity could not be completely explained by thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) polymorphisms, as a number of patients who are homozygous wild type or normal for TPMT still develop toxicity that necessitates 6-mercaptopurine (MP) dose reduction or protocol interruption. Recently, few studies reported on an inherited nucleoside diphosphate-linked moiety X motif 15 (NUDT15) c.415C>T low-function variant that is associated with decreased thiopurine metabolism and leukopenia in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and other diseases...

We performed a genomewide association study (GWAS) of primary erythrocyte thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) activity in children with leukemia (n = 1,026). Adjusting for age and ancestry, TPMT was the only gene that reached genomewide significance (top hit rs1142345 or 719A>G; P = 8.6 × 10(-61) ). Additional genetic variants (in addition to the three single-nucleotide polymorphisms [SNPs], rs1800462, rs1800460, and rs1142345, defining TPMT clinical genotype) did not significantly improve classification accuracy for TPMT phenotype...

Background and Aims. Thiopurines are used in the treatment of Crohn's disease (CD) and thiopurine S-methyltransferase (TPMT) activity can guide thiopurine dosing to avoid adverse events. This retrospective study evaluated the safety and efficacy of starting thiopurines at low dose versus full dose in patients with CD and normal TPMT. Methods. This was a single center retrospective study including adult CD patients with normal TPMT levels (≥25 nmol/hr/g Hgb) who were followed for 1 year. Patients started at full dose of azathioprine (2-2...
