decitabine An azacitidine derivative and antineoplastic antimetabolite. It inhibits DNA methyltransferase to re-activate silent genes, limiting METASTASIS and NEOPLASM DRUG RESISTANCE. Decitabine is used in the treatment of MYELODISPLASTIC SYNDROMES, and ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.
inqovi Cedazuridine inhibits cytidine deaminase (CDA), an enzyme that catalyzes the degradation of cytidine, including the cytidine analog decitabine (a nucleoside metabolic inhibitor). Because high levels of CDA in the gastrointestinal tract and liver degrade decitabine and limit its oral bioavailability, administration of cedazuridine with decitabine increases systemic exposure of decitabine. Inqovi is a combination of decitabine and cedazuridine for treatment of adult patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).
