Description
Curator's Comment:: Description was created based on several sources, including http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2014/020509s075lbl.pdf

Gemcitabine is a nucleoside analog used as chemotherapy. It is marketed as Gemzar® by Eli Lilly and Company. Gemcitabine inhibits thymidylate synthetase, leading to inhibition of DNA synthesis and cell death. Gemcitabine is a prodrug so activity occurs as a result of intracellular conversion to two active metabolites, gemcitabine diphosphate and gemcitabine triphosphate by deoxycitidine kinase. Gemcitabine diphosphate also inhibits ribonucleotide reductase, the enzyme responsible for catalyzing synthesis of deoxynucleoside triphosphates required for DNA synthesis. Finally, Gemcitabine triphosphate (diflurorodeoxycytidine triphosphate) competes with endogenous deoxynucleoside triphosphates for incorporation into DNA. Gemcitabine is indicated for the treatment of advanced ovarian cancer that has relapsed at least 6 months after completion of platinum-based therapy; metastatic ovarian cancer; inoperable, locally advanced (Stage IIIA or IIIB), or metastatic (Stage IV) non-small cell lung cancer; and locally advanced (nonresectable Stage II or Stage III) or metastatic (Stage IV) adenocarcinoma of the pancreas.

CNS Activity

Curator's Comment:: modest penetration of gemcitabine into the CSF after i.v. administration in nonhuman primates was shown, also can partially cross the BBB in humans https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17538177

Sample Use Guides

In phase 2 study against pancreatic cancer, the drug was administered intravenously at 1250 mg/m2/d on day 1, 8 and 15 of each 4-week cycle.
Route of Administration: Intravenous
The in vitro experiments were performed in cell lines of leukemia and solid tumor origin, both sensitive and resistant to gemcitabine. All populations were cultured at 37°C in a humidified atmosphere of 95% air and 5% CO2. Sensitivity to drugs was defined by the concentration of the drug causing a growth inhibition of 50% (IC50) after 72 h drug exposure of the cells. The cells were plated in 24-well plates in different densities, depending on their doubling times, to enable log-linear growth for 72 h. Drugs were added directly after plating the cells. Final concentrations of the drugs in the wells ranged from 2.10−10 to 10−3 M.
