Thymidylate synthase inhibitor
Thymidylate synthase inhibitors are chemical agents which inhibit the enzyme thymidylate synthase and have potential as an anticancer chemotherapy. Five agents were in clinical trials in 2002: raltitrexed, pemetrexed, nolatrexed, ZD9331, and GS7904L.
- Raltitrexed, used for colorectal cancer since 1998
- Fluorouracil, used for colorectal cancer
- BGC 945
