Gleevec (imatinib; Novartis) Drug Analysis 2018: An Orally Administered BCR-ABL Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Drug analysis: Gleevec" drug pipelines has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Gleevec (imatinib; Novartis) is an orally administered BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). The BCR-ABL fusion gene activates a number of signaling pathways that facilitate cancer cell transformation and proliferation, the inhibition of apoptosis, and adhesion and cytoskeleton abnormalities, all of which are characteristics of the disease.

The presence of this gene is a result of the Philadelphia chromosome translocation, which is found in over 90% of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cases.

Novartis's BCR-ABL TKI is marketed as Gleevec in the US, and Glivec outside the US for a number of different oncology indications. These include CML, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
