Pharmacodynamics

Pipobroman is an antineoplastic agent. Specifically it is a piperazine derivative with a chemical structure close to that of many DNA alkylating agents. Pipobroman has well documented clinical activity against polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia.

Mechanism of action

The mechanism of action is uncertain but pipobroman is thought to alkylate DNA leading to disruption of DNA synthesis and eventual cell death.

Cross-linking/alkylation
DNA is the molecule of heredity, as it is responsible for the genetic propagation of most inherited traits. It is a polynucleic acid that carries genetic information on cell growth, division, and function. DNA consists of two long strands of nucleotides twisted into a double helix and held together by hydrogen bonds. The sequence of nucleotides determines hereditary characteristics. Each strand serves as the template for subsequent DNA replication and as a template for mRNA production, leading to protein synthesis via ribosomes.
