Additional Information

The antitumor activity of oral glyciphosphoramide  was demonstrated in tumor-bearing animals (mice, rats, and dogs). In mice, the LD50 for oral and i.p. I were 580 and 360 mg/kg, resp. The max. tolerated dose of I in dogs was 20 mg/kg/day. In normal rats, 14C-radioactivity in blood reached its peak 8 h after oral administration of I-14C. The tissue distribution of I-14C in normal and tumor-bearing rats was similar, the radioactivity being highest in liver, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract and tumor tissue. The cumulative excretion of 14C-radioactivity in urine and feces was 32.54% within 96 h. see: Zhongguo Yixue Kexueyuan Xuebao (1984), 6(5), 334-7.
