Pentostatin is indicated for the treatment of hairy cell leukemia. Pentostatin is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme adenosine deaminase (ADA). Inhibition of ADA leads to cytotoxicity which is believed to be due to elevated intracellular levels of deoxyadenosine 5'-triphosphate (dATP) that block DNA synthesis by inhibiting ribonucleotide reductase. Additionally, pentostatin can inhibit RNA synthesis and cause DNA damage. The exact mechanism for the antitumor effect in patients with hairy cell leukemia is unknown.
