REVIEW

 Oxonic acid potassium salt is a biochemical modulator in the tegafur/gimeracil/oxonic acid potassium salt combination anticancer drug, which is used for the treatment of advanced gastric cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. Due to its low permeability, oxonic acid potassium salt stays in the gut, where it reduces the production of 5-fluorouracil by blocking the enzyme orotate phosphoribosyltransferase. Lower 5-fluorouracil levels in the gut result in a lower gastrointestinal toxicity. A similar approach is present in S-1-gimeracil and oteracil potassium used for the treatment of gastric cancer.
