Clofarabine is a purine nucleoside anti-metabolite. Its antitumour activity is believed to be due to 3 mechanisms. Clofarabine produces DNA polymerase inhibition resulting in termination of DNA chain elongation and/or DNA synthesis/repair and ribonucleotide reductase inhibition with reduction of cellular deoxynucleotide triphosphate (dNTP) pools. Clofarabine also produces disruption of mitochondrial membrane integrity with the release of cytochrome C and other proapoptotic factors leading to programmed cell death even in non-dividing lymphocytes.
