Irinotecan hydrochloride Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


lrinotecan hydrochloride, a semi-synthetic, water soluble derivative of the potent anticancer agent camptothecin, was launched in Japan for the treatment of lung, ovarian, and cervical cancers. lrinotecan exerts its antitumor activity via inhibition of topoisomerase I, a cellular enzyme that is involved in maintaining the topographic structure of DNA during the process of translation, transcription, and mitosis. lrinotecan undergoes de-esterification in vivo to yield an active metabolite, SN-38, which is 1000-fold more potent than the parent. Although being much less toxic than camptothecin, a significant number of patients in clinical trials exhibited side effects of leukopenia, diarrhea, nauseahromiting, and alopecia. Combination therapy of irinotecan with another widely used anticancer agent, cisplatin, has been reported to be superior to either agent alone. lrinotecan is in clinical trials for gastrointestinal, breast, skin, colorectal, pancreatic cancers, mesothelioma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

ChEBI: A hydrochloride obtained by combining irinotecan with one molar equivalent of hydrochloric acid. Used (in the form of its trihydrate) in combination with fluorouracil and leucovorin, for the treatment of patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancr as after disease progression following gemcitabine-based therapy. It is converted via hydrolysis of the carbamate linkage to its active metabolite, SN-38, which is ~1000 times more active.

General Description

Irinotecan is available in 100-mg or 5-mL vials for IV administrationand is used in combination with 5-FU and leucovorinas first-line treatment of metastatic colon cancer.The agent may also be used as a single agent in colorectalcancer as a second-line therapy when 5-FU therapy hasfailed. Additional uses include small cell lung cancer,NSCLC, cervical cancer, esophageal cancer, and gastric cancer Irinotecan is 30% to 60% plasma protein bound, whereasthe active metabolite SN-38 is 95% protein bound. Bindingof SN-38 as the lactone stabilizes the material to ring opening.The elimination of the agent occurs primarily in the bilewith a minor amount of renal elimination. The excretion ofactive metabolites or inactive metabolites such as the glucuronideSN-38G, which may be converted back to SN-38 inthe bile, has been associated with severe diarrhea. Irinotecanand SN-38 have half-lives of 8 and 14 hours, respectively.Irinotecan has two dose-limiting toxicities, myelosuppressionand diarrhea. The diarrhea occurs in two forms, earlyand late. The early form occurs within the first 24 hours afteradministration. It has been associated with inhibition ofacetylcholinesterase, which results in increased gut motility.This early phase is also associated with flushing, abdominalpain, and excessive sweating. Atropine can be used to relievethese symptoms but it is not recommended for prophylacticuse unless there has been a prior episode. The late-phasediarrhea occurs after 24 hours and has been associated withthe presence of active material, particularly SN-38 in the gut,and may last 3 to 10 days. The prolonged nature may lead todehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Loperamide therapyis recommended at the first appearance of a loose stool. If thediarrhea persists, additional agents may be used includingantibiotics that decrease β-glucosidase–producing bacteria inthe gut and prevent the overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria.111Other toxicities include emesis and alopecia.
