Tetrahydrouridine, also known as THU, is an inhibitor of nucleotide metabolism and is under investigation for use in the treatment of cancer. THU may be useful for researching potential treatments for high cytidine deaminase (CDA) expressing tumors as a competitive inhibitor of CDA. It is being evaluated alone or in combination with the DNA methyltransferase inhibitor, 5- fluoro-2’-deoxycytidine in animal models and clinical trials for diseases including cancer and mitochondrial DNA syndrome. It is also being evaluated in combination with cytosine arabinoside (ara-C, cytarabine) for acute myeloid leukemia and in combination with decitabine (DAC) for the treatment of sickle cell disease and β-thalassemia.
