Pharmacology 4350A/B Study Guide - Panitumumab, Cetuximab, Cyp2B6

59 views1 pages
Craig Venter diploid genome 2007
James Watson 2008
First human genome sequence completed in 2003
3 billion bases
25,000 protein coding genes
0.4% difference in DNA between individuals
Polymorphism - DNA variation of a gene
Allele - specific sequence variation of a gene
Haplotype - chromosomal region which groups of alleles are more frequently inherited together
Genetic variants on pharmacokinetic effects
Warfarin metabolized by CYP2C9 (genetic testing)
Azathioprine -> 6-MP -> 6-TG
TPMT deficiency = hematopoietic toxicity
90% TPMT*1 = WT: 1/300 TPMT*3 = low enzyme activity
Genetic testing before dosing
Thiopurines (Treat leukemia + inflammatory bowel + organ transplant)
Irinotecan --> SN-38 (active) ---> SN-38G (inactive)
*28 is frequent in europeans + *6 is frequent in asians
UGT1A1*1 (normal) + UGT1A1*28 (AA change in TATA box) + UGT1A1*6
UGT1A1 deficiency = severe diarrhea + neutropenia
UGT 1A1 (UDP-glucuronosyltransferase)
Phase 2
Genetic effects on pharmacodynamic
Overexpression = head/neck cancer
Deletion = brain cancer
Kinase domain mutation = lung cancer
Overexpression = breast cancer
Kinase domain mutation = lung cancer
RTK - proliferation + inhibit apoptosis + angiogenesis
Monoclonal AB (trastuzumab + cetuximab) blocks receptor dimerization
Increase response to getfitinib in lung cancer patients with EGFR mutation/amplification
Getfitinib - increase response to getfitinib in lung cancer patients with kinase-domain mutation
ATP mimetics small molecules (getfitinib + erlotinib + lapatinib) blocks nucleotide binding
RTK inhibitors
Genetic variant on toxicity effects
MHC chromosome 6 with 220 genes
Very polymorphic affecting MHC binding to antigen + T cell recognizing MHC
MHC molecules bind to antigen's cell surface peptide and is recognized by T cells
Fever + rash + internal organ involvement
Reversible if drug stopped within 3 days
HLA-B*5701 + HLA-DR7 + HLA-DQ3 linked with hypersensitivity syndrome (delayed immune response)
Abacavir (HIV reverse-transcriptase inhibitor) (anti-viral)
UGT - most common phase
2 enzyme
Best prediction of thyrosine inhibitor response in kinase -domain
