Drug interaction of Decitabine

Drug interaction findings along with decitabine have not been conducted. In vitro findings in human liver microsomes suggest that decitabine is unlikely to inhibit or induce the cytochrome P450 enzymes. In vitro metabolism findings have suggested that decitabine is not a substrate for human liver cytochrome P450 enzymes. As plasma protein binding of decitabine is negligible (<1 percent), interactions due to displacement of more highly protein bound drugs from plasma proteins are not expected.
