AZASAN®, an immunosuppressive antimetabolite, is available
in tablet form for oral administration. Each scored tablet contains 75 mg or
100 mg azathioprine and the inactive ingredients lactose monohydrate,
pregelatinized starch, povidone, corn starch, magnesium stearate, and stearic
acid.
Azathioprine is chemically 1H-purine,
6-[(1-methyl-4-nitro-1H-imidazol-5-yl)thio]-. The structural formula of
azathioprine is:








It is an imidazolyl derivative of 6-mercaptopurine and many
of its biological effects are similar to those of the parent compound.
Azathioprine is insoluble in water, but may be dissolved with addition of one molar equivalent of alkali. The sodium salt of azathioprine is sufficiently
soluble to make a 10 mg/mL water solution which is stable for 24 hours at 59°
to 77°F (15° to 25°C). Azathioprine is stable in solution at neutral
or acid pH but hydrolysis to mercaptopurine occurs in excess sodium hydroxide
(0.1N), especially on warming. Conversion to mercaptopurine also occurs in the
presence of sulfhydryl compounds such as cysteine, glutathione, and hydrogen
sulfide.Last reviewed on RxList: 9/14/2009
