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

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

Tasigna (nilotinib; Novartis) is an orally administered BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor. In Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia, the BCR-ABL protein activates a number of cell cycle-controlling proteins and enzymes, speeding up cell division. The binding of Tasigna to the BCR-ABL protein blocks the signal that leads to the production of leukemic cells.

Novartis will continue to look to Tasigna to make up for Gleevec's (imatinib; Novartis) downturn caused by the entry of generic imatinib into the chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) market. The second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) has displayed cytogenetic and molecular response rates superior to those of Gleevec, but is likely to see its use remain primarily in the second-line setting alongside direct competitor Sprycel (dasatinib; Bristol-Myers Squibb/Otsuka).
