Purpose: Methotrexate (MTX) is widely used for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and other malignant diseases. MTX is intracellularly metabolized to its more active forms, methotrexate polyglutamates, which are subsequently cleaved in lysosomes by gamma-glutamyl hydrolase (GGH). GGH is reported to act as key enzyme exhibiting.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
