Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mitoxantrone is a cytostatic anthracenedione that intercalates in DNA and increases the incidence of double-strand breaks by stabilizing the cleavable complex of topoisomerase II and DNA. Mitoxantrone also displays broad immunosuppressive activity inhibiting proliferation of all classes of lymphocytes and inducing apoptosis of antigen-presenting T cells. It used clinically as a chemotherapeutic agent against leukemias and solid tumors and as an immune system modulator in multiple sclerosis.
