Core Tip Treatment with thiopurines is associated with a reduced risk of developing colorectal cancer in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. The molecular target of azathioprine, Rac1 has recently been implicated as a critical player during sporadic intestinal tumorigenesis. Here, we investigated the potential preventive role of azathioprine in ApcMin/+, a mouse model of sporadic intestinal tumorigenesis. Even though all azathioprine treated mice showed signs of drug-associated toxicity, it did not reduce tumor formation. We therefore conclude that in the absence of inflammation azathioprine does not affect intestinal tumorigenesis.
