Targeted agents, defined as drugs designed to target specific gene mutations in malignant tissue, inhibit oncogenic signaling cascades associated with tumor growth.

Prophylaxis is the mainstay of management and should be routinely implemented in high and intermediate risk patients. Safety of urate-lowering therapies: Febuxostat Tablets, 80 mg.

Patients with cancer are at risk for acute kidney injury that is caused by sepsis, direct kidney injury due to the primary cancer, metabolic disturbances, the nephrotoxic effects of anticancer therapies, syndromme hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. Published by Baishideng Publishing Group Inc. When assessing the risk of TLS in a particular patient, it is essential to bear in mind both the general and tumor-related predictors of risk.

This article is an open-access article which was selected by an in-house editor and fully peer-reviewed by external reviewers.

Coiffier et al[ 22 ] enrolled patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma to lusis whether the use of rasburicase is tuor safe and effective method of preventing TLS in a high risk group. Administration of loop diuretics may also improve control of hyperkalemia in patients with TLS. Furthermore, we have recently reported that TLS in patients with solid malignancies may be higher than previously thought, and certain cancers with a sensitivity to therapy may be at higher risk for TLS, such as small cell lung cancer[ 4 ].


The search methodology was adapted from the scientific search guidelines published in [ 5 ]. As discussed above, patients with TLS who have hypocalcemia should not be generally lysi with calcium supplementation, given the higher risk of calcium phosphate crystallization and organ injury.

Allopurinol works by blocking the xanthine oxidase enzyme. Neurologic tu,or of electrolyte disturbances and acid-base balance. Upper limits of normal.

Given the high cost of rasburicase, this may decrease the cost of treatment. It is necessary to note that laboratory TLS is defined as the presence of at least two or more biochemical variables within the 3 d before chemotherapy or 7 d after chemotherapy in the face of adequate hydration and use of uric acid lowering agent. Furthermore, cancer patients often suffer from vomiting and diarrhea, which can significantly diminish their volume status. Clin J Am Soc Nephrol. Adapted from Cairo et al[ 2 ].

The calcium phosphorus produced is calculated simply by multiplying the serum calcium and the phosphorus concentration. Department of health and human services, Food and Drug Administration. AKI in the cancer patient.

Tumor lysis syndrome: A clinical review

Established tumor lysis syndrome should be treated in the intensive care unit by aggressive hydration, possible use of loop diuretics, possible use of phosphate binders, use of uric acid lowering agents and dialysis in refractory cases. J Clin Pharm Ther. Uric acid nephropathy results when purine nucleotides released from cancer cells are metabolized by xanthine oxidase into insoluble uric acid.

In emergent cases where there syndrlme no permanent dialysis access, a short term dialysis catheter syndrone be inserted. It is important to note that calcium chloride contains more calcium than calcium gluconate and should preferably be administered via a central line. It is likely that advanced age predisposes to TLS via a decrease in the renal reserve, and may complicate volume replacement therapy due to higher rates of cardiac dysfunction.


The clinical presentation and symptomatology is directly linked to the biochemical derangements observed in this disorder. Tumor lysis syndrome in patients with acute myeloid leukemia: November 27, Article in press: Calcium phosphate precipitation in the renal tubules may also contribute to acute kidney injury in patients with severe hyperphosphatemia from the tumor lysis syndrome, especially if the urine is alkaline.

Tumor lysis syndrome: A clinical review

Abstract Tumor lysis syndrome is an oncometabolic emergency resulting from rapid cell death. It is essential to note that sodium polystyrene sulfonate should not be used in patients with intestinal ileus or obstruction, and in post-operative patients due to higher risk of intestinal ischemia and necrosis[ 32 ].

Tumor lysis syndrome TLS is characterized by a massive tumor cell death leading to the development of metabolic derangements and target organ dysfunction. Comparative evaluation of single fixed dosing and weight-based dosing of rasburicase for tumor lysis syndrome.
