Mercaptopurine (6-MP), sold under the brand name Purinethol among others, is a medication used for cancer and autoimmune diseases.[1] Specifically it is used to treat acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis.[1][2] For ALL it is generally used with methotrexate. It is taken by mouth.[1]

Common side effects include bone marrow suppression, liver toxicity, vomiting, and loss of appetite. Other serious side effects include an increased risk of future cancer and pancreatitis. Those with a genetic deficiency in thiopurine S-methyltransferase are at higher risk of side effects. Use in pregnancy may harm the baby.[1] Mercaptopurine is in the thiopurine and antimetabolite family of medications.[3][2]

Mercaptopurine was approved for medical use in the United States in 1953.[1] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.[4] The wholesale cost in the developing world is about 18.42 to 200.16 USD a month.[5] In the United Kingdom this costs the NHS about 121.13 pounds per month.[2] In the United States the wholesale cost is about 99.16 USD per month as of 2016.[6]
