Hormonal antineoplastic drugs and hormone modulators Hormonal antineoplastic drugs and hormone modulators are prescribed to alter the growth of malignant neoplasms or to man- age and treat their physiologic effects. Aromatase inhibitors In postmenopausal women, estrogen is produced through aromatase, an enzyme that converts hormone precursors into estrogen. Aromatase inhibitors prevent androgen from being converted into estrogen in postmenopausal women, thereby blocking estrogen’s ability to activate can- cer cells; limiting the amount of estrogen means that less estrogen is available to reach cancer cells and make them grow. Type 1, or steroidal, inhibitors include exemestane; type 2, or nonsteroidal, inhibitors include anastrozole and letrozole. Pharmacokinetics Aromatase inhibitors are taken orally (in pill form) and are usually well tolerated. Pharmacodynamics Aromatase inhibitors work by lowering the body’s production of estrogen. In about one-half of all patients with breast cancer, the tumors depend on estrogen to grow. Aromatase inhibitors are used only in postmenopausal women because they lower the Memory amount of estrogen that’s produced outside the ovaries, such as in jogger muscle and fat tissue.

Normal cells that are reproducing actively cheap duloxetine 20mg free shipping, as well as the cancer cells buy duloxetine 60 mg free shipping, are af- fected by the antimetabolites. Folic acid analogues Although researchers have developed many folic acid analogues, the early compound methotrexate remains the most commonly used. Pharmacokinetics Methotrexate is well absorbed and distributed throughout the body. It can accumulate in any fluid collection, such as ascites or pleural or pericardial effusion, possibly resulting in prolonged elimination and higher than expected toxicity, especially myelo- suppression. Metabolism and excretion Although methotrexate is metabolized partially, it’s excreted pri- marily unchanged in urine. A disappearing act Methotrexate exhibits a three-part disappearance from plasma; the rapid distributive phase is followed by a second phase, which reflects kidney clearance. The last phase, the terminal half-life, is 3 to 10 hours for a low dose and 8 to 15 hours for a high dose. Methotrexate is especially useful in treating the most Pharmacodynamics common childhood Methotrexate reversibly inhibits the action of the enzyme dihydro- leukemia. Folinic acid is used in high-dose methotrexate therapy to help prevent cell death.

Cytosine and thymine are pyrimidines; After pyrimidine analogues are converted into adenine and guanine are purines. Pharmacokinetics Because pyrimidine analogues are poorly absorbed when they’re given orally, they’re usually administered by other routes. Pharmacodynamics Pyrimidine analogues kill cancer cells by interfering with the nat- ural function of pyrimidine nucleotides.

Drug interactions No significant drug interactions occur with most of the pyrimidine analogues; however, several drug interactions are possible with capecitabine. They include: • fludarabine phosphate • cladribine • mercaptopurine • pentostatin • thioguanine. Pharmacodynamics As with the other antimetabolites, fludarabine, mercaptopurine, and thioguanine first must be converted via phosphorylation (in- troduction to a phosphate) to the nucleotide level to be active. Analogous to pyrimide analogues This conversion to nucleotides is the same process that pyrimi- dine analogues go through but, in this case, it’s purine nucleotides that are affected. Purine analogues are cell cycle–specific as well, exerting their effect during that same S phase.

Bleomycin, doxorubicin, and mitomycin are some- times given as topical bladder instillations, resulting in minimal systemic absorption. When bleomycin is injected into the pleural space for malignant effusions, up to one-half of the dose is ab- sorbed systemically.

Research has demonstrated that drug use does not differ between schools with and without drug testing discount 60 mg duloxetine with visa. In 2006 duloxetine 60mg lowest price, the Cochrane Collaboration published a systematic review of interventions for the prevention of drug use delivered to young people in non-school settings. The lack of research in this area meant the authors were unable to carry out a meta- analysis and pool results across similar interventions. It was suggested that further high-quality research was needed before any conclusions could be made on the efficacy of non-school-based prevention strategies. Significant effects on reducing drug use were detected for individual family interventions. Education and skills training were found to have little effect on reducing drug use. Mass media and social marketing approaches Mass media campaigns are commonly used as part of universal strategies to reduce drug use. Friendly confidential drugs advice) is the most recent example of a mass media prevention initiative. This was established by the Department of Health and the Home Office in 2003 and included an online information source. An analysis of 13 review papers concluded that the use of mass media alone improved awareness of drug harms in some cases, but overall was not effective in reducing illicit drug use. Using social marketing to enhance mass media approaches may be a useful way of increasing the efficacy of mass media campaigns. Social marketing differs from commercial marketing, in that it tries to sell ‘ideas’ to consumers, as opposed to products. Social marketing seeks to influence social behaviours and benefit the target audience. Using social marketing to deliver health messages presents a developing area in reducing the uptake of drugs. An evaluation of social marketing to reduce alcohol and cannabis use found a significant effect in terms of lifetime cannabis use. Selective and indicated prevention strategies overcome this by targeting specific groups at heightened risk of using drugs. Research has demonstrated that these groups commonly include the homeless, those looked after by local authorities or in foster care, sex workers, truants and those excluded from school, young offenders, children from substance-using families, and young people with conduct or depressive disorders (see Section 4. There is a limited amount of high-quality research in this area, but the evidence that is available suggests these interventions have some effect at reducing drug use among vulnerable groups. The age at which interventions take place among vulnerable young people appears to have a significant impact on illicit drug use. The 2005 review discussed above identified the age range 11 to 13 years as a crucial period for interventions. For vulnerable children at high risk, interventions in non-school settings may need to be explored, as these children may have higher levels of school truancy. Targeting preventative interventions to those at heightened risk of problematic drug use relies on accurate identification of those groups that are susceptible to drug use. It is essential that all necessary agencies are provided with the appropriate resources to identify at-risk groups. Government policy currently focuses on providing universal and selective prevention programmes. While these interventions may have some benefit, this is limited and there is a lack of robust evidence to support their use. The question remains whether alternative policy options should be explored, which could potentially have greater benefit. Prevention strategies that focus on positive social and behavioural development appear to be effective. Programmes that only provide drug-relevant information, or try to boost self-esteem, are less likely to be effective at reducing demand. Taking action on preventing the underlying causes of drug use may be as effective as, or more effective than, preventing drug use directly. Summary • Current prevention strategies aim to reduce drug use by influencing attitudes and behaviour, in order to prevent or delay the initiation of drug use. Secondary prevention interventions, such as harm-prevention strategies, are yet to receive much in the way of attention.
