Myelotoxicity has been shown to be very common in Korean patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) during azathioprine (AZA) or 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) treatment. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relative risk of the thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) and inosine triphosphate pyrophosphatase (ITPA) genotypes and TPMT activity for the development of leukopenia in Korean IBD patients during AZA/6-MP treatment.
