Understanding DPYD Mutation Analysis in Allahabad

What is DPYD Mutation Analysis in Allahabad?

DPYD mutation analysis is a genetic test that helps detect specific genetic changes (mutations) in the DPYD gene. DPYD gene encodes Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD), an enzyme crucial for pyrimidine catabolism. In the liver, DPD plays a vital role in breaking down most of the commonly prescribed anticancer drugs like 5-FU, thereby regulating the availability of active metabolites. Extensive clinical studies conducted worldwide have demonstrated that approximately 40-60% of cancer patients with DPD deficiency experience severe, life-threatening toxicities when treated with 5-FU. These findings highlight the importance of identifying DPD deficiency through targeted gene sequencing, as it can aid in predicting and managing potential toxicities associated with 5-FU treatment in cancer patients.
