Glivec 100 is an oral oncology drug which is used to treat certain types of cancer such as -
• Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of white blood cells.
• A type of Acute lymphoblastic leukemida (ALL) called Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+ALL).
• Myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative conditions - blood disorders where some blood cells grow out of control.
• Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) - a rare type of cancer of the supporting tissue of the bowel or stomach.
• Dermato fibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) - a rare type of cancer of the tissue under the skin.
• Hypereosinophilic Syndrome (HES) / Chronic Eosinophilic Leukemia (CEL).
Gleevec 100mg tablets contain the active ingredient Imatinib Mesylate, which is an anti-cancer drug called tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). Tyrosine kinases are a group of around 90 enzymes that cells use to signal to each other to grow. They act as chemical messengers. There are many types of kinases that control different phases of cell growth. Imatinib targets different tyrosine kinases, depending on the type of cancer. By targeting/blocking a particular enzyme from working, this medication can slow down the growth of cancer cells.
