DescriptionCytarabine, also known as cytosar or aracytine, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as pyrimidine nucleosides. Pyrimidine nucleosides are compounds comprising a pyrimidine base attached to a ribosyl or deoxyribosyl moiety. Cytarabine is a drug which is used for the treatment of acute non-lymphocytic leukemia, acute lymphocytic leukemia and blast phase of chronic myelocytic leukemia. Cytarabine exists as a solid, possibly soluble (in water), and an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa) molecule. Cytarabine exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Cytarabine is a potentially toxic compound.
