Biochem/physiol Actions

Pentostatin is a ring-expanded nucleoside (REN) that potently inhibits adenosine deaminase, which leads to lymphocyte toxicity. Pentostatin is used as anticancer agent to treat leukemia (hairy cell leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and is investigated as an agent to treat graft-versus-host disease (GVHD).
Pentostatin/2′-deoxycoformycin is used to treat patients with Waldenström′s macroglobulinemia.
