idoxuridin

An analog of DEOXYURIDINE that inhibits viral DNA synthesis. The drug is used as an antiviral agent.
MSH

pyrimidine analog which inhibits viral DNA synthesis.
CSP

A drug that reduces the risk of cancer cell growth by interfering with the cells` DNA.
NCI

An iodinated analogue of deoxyuridine. Idoxuridine incorporates into DNA during the S-phase of the cell cycle, sensitizing cells to ionizing radiation by increasing DNA strand breaks. When this agent contains a radioactive isomer of iodine, the radioactive idoxuridine kills cancer cells directly after preferential incorporation into the DNA of rapidly dividing tumor cells. Check for "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=39481&idtype=1" active clinical trials or "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=39481&idtype=1&closed=1" closed clinical trials using this agent.
