Tubercidin, an adenosine analogue, is a nucleoside antibiotic. It is incorporated into DNA and inhibits polymerases, thereby inhibiting DNA replication and RNA and protein synthesis. This agent also exhibits antifungal and antiviral activities.Tubercidin at the dose regimen (5 mg/kg everyday for 4 days) is lethal when used alone. Some of the studies show that the mortality from tubercidin is primarily due to hepatic and renal injuries and, to a lesser extent, damage to the pancreas. Coadministration of NBMPR-P at 25 mg/kg per day completely protects the mice (100% survival) from this lethal dose regimen of tubercidin
