Fotemustine is a third generation nitrosourea, chloroethylating agent with antineoplastic activity. Fotemustine alkylates guanine by forming chloroethyl adducts at the 6 position of guanine, resulting in N1-guanine and N3-cytosine cross linkages, inhibition of DNA synthesis, cell cycle arrest, and finally apoptosis. Fotemustine is lipophilic and crosses the blood-brain barrier.
