Additional Details

Used in patients on methotrexate treatment who have kidney dysfunction, and are experiencing an abnormally high plasma concentration of methotrexate (> 1 micromole per liter).
Glucarpidase acts as an antidote to toxic methotrexate levels by elminating methotrexate by a non-kidney route.
Mode of Action:
Glucarpidase inactivates methotrexate, and other antifolates, by hydrolyzing glutamate on the carboxyl terminal of these compounds. For methotrexate specifically, it is hydrolyzed to the inactive metabolites glutamate and 4-deoxy-4-amino-N10-methylpteroic acid (DAMPA).
Metabolism was not determined.
Most common adverse reactions include hypotension, flushing, nausea, vomiting, headache, and paresthesia.
