Possible Interaction: Homocysteine and Methotrexate



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In the univariate linear regression, the global toxicity score was associated with a significant rise in plasma HCY concentrations within 48 h after MTX administration (β = 0.4; R2 = 0.12; p = 0.02).

The use of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), particularly methotrexate , increases homocysteinemia , reduces inflammation and improves lipid profiles, thus reducing the development of atherosclerosis and clinically overt CVD.

We should keep in mind, for example, that exposure to any folate or vitamin B6 antagonist, such as methotrexate , phenytoin, estrogens, tobacco, or theophylline, could significantly raise blood concentrations of homocysteine thus strongly increasing the risk of arterial and venous thrombotic events.

Plasma homocysteine level did significantly increase in AS patients under sulfasalazine or MTX treatment.

Homocysteine concentrations increased after MTX administration by a median of 2.5 mumol/l (range 0.7-5.1).

Moreover, MTX interferes with the metabolic pathways of folates, excitatory amino acids, homocysteine , S-adenosylmethionine/S-adenosylhomocysteine, adenosine and biopterins, inducing biochemical alterations which have been associated with neurotoxic symptoms.
