Lonsurf ([trifluridine + tipiracil]; Otsuka/Servier) is an oral combination drug with both anti-angiogenic and cytotoxic effects. It is composed of trifluridine, an antineoplastic nucleoside analog, and tipiracil hydrochloride, a thymidine phosphorylase inhibitor. Following uptake into the cancer cells, trifluridine is incorporated into DNA, thereby interfering with DNA synthesis and inhibiting cell proliferation. Tipiracil hydrochloride increases the bioavailability of trifluridine by preventing its rapid metabolism and ensuring the blood concentration of trifluridine is maintained.
