Cytotoxic drugs: effect on pregnancy and reproductive function. Most cytotoxic drugs are teratogenic and should not be administered during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. Considerable caution is necessary if a pregnant woman presents with cancer requiring chemotherapy, and specialist advice should always be sought. If recognized quickly, systemic cyanide poisoning is treatable by agents binding to cyanide in order to protect cytochrome c oxidase, and efforts devoted to developing more effective antidotes are.

Cyanide is a rapid acting and potentially fatal chemical, which exists in a variety of chemical complexities and forms (gas, liquid, or solid), all of which contain a CN moiety.   Antidote Kit for Cure. The Cyanide Antidote Kit comprise of sodium nitrite, amyl nitrite pearls and sodium thiosulfate. The first two components induce methemoglobin in RBCs, which combines with cyanide to release an enzyme known as Cytochrome oxidase.

The starting dose for Phase 1 trials of cytotoxic oncology drugs is based on preclinical animal toxicology studies along the lines recommended by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) [].The dose is usually based on one-tenth of the dose (on a body surface area basis) that causes severe toxicity (or death) in 10% of rodents, i.e.

Recently, it appeared that some novel cytotoxic drugs such as trastuzumab and cyclopentenyl cytosine also show cardiotoxic side effects. PMID: [Indexed for Cited by: Cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agents are unlike most drugs, as they don't target specific proteins, but instead a property of the cell: proliferation.

They target rapidly proliferating cells with the aim of causing a lethal cytotoxic event or apoptosis in order to arrest tumour development. Hall AH, Rumack BH. Hydroxycobalamin/sodium thiosulfate as a cyanide antidote.

Several antibiotics are widely used as anticancer drugs. They include a group of anticancer drugs known as the anthracycline antibiotics, typified by daunorubicin and its close structural compound doxorubicin, both isolated from owe their cytotoxic action principally to their ability to interact with DNA (intercalation) leading to a disruption of DNA function.

George Braitberg, in Critical Care Nephrology (Third Edition), Treatment. Cyanide poisoning is treated differently in different parts of the world. The treatment approach will differ according to whether cyanide is to be directly chelated with a cobalt-containing moiety (dicobalt edetate mg and hydroxocobalamin to 5 g as an initial dose) or whether the cyanide is provided with an.
