5-fluorouracil

From SNPedia


Chemotherapeutic treatment using 5-fluorouracil may pose increased risk of toxicity to patients with variations in certain genes, including the DPYD and TYMS genes.

For example, carriers of a rs3918290(A) allele are at increased risk for toxicity when treated with 5-fluorouracil.[1]
