Special Warning or precaution for use
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis who underwent azathioprine developed acute myelogenous leukaemia (AML) as well as solid malignancies.
Patients on azathioprine may have severe low or limited white blood cell counts, platelet counts, and red blood cell counts, as well as macrocytic anaemia and/or pancytopenia. It's also possible to have severe bone marrow suppression.
People with limited or absent TPMT activity are more likely to suffer severe, life-threatening myelotoxicity when given standard azathioprine dosages. The use of TPMT genotyping or phenotyping can aid in the identification of people who are at a higher risk of developing damage.
